Adele reportedly walked out on an Australian TV host Matt Doran after he admitted he hadn’t listened to her new album during their interview.
Seven Network host Matt Doran flew from Sydney to London earlier this month to interview the “Hello” singer as part of a $725,000 deal that included rights to Adele’s Oprah Winfrey special and two-hour comeback concert, the Daily Telegraph said.
During the sit-down, Adele asked what the “Weekend Sunrise” host thought of her new album, “30” only for him to reportedly admit, “I haven’t listened to it.”
Offended, Adele walked out on the interview and her label, Sony, refused to allow Seven network to use it.
“Seven is obviously angry about it. Matt was reprimanded. He should have done the research,” an insider said told Pagesix, saying the host was suspended for two weeks.
Doran told The Australian that he is “mortified and unequivocally apologetic” to Adele, insisting it was a simple mistake.

“When I sat down to interview Adele, I was totally unaware that I’d been emailed a preview of her unreleased album,” Doran said.
“I have since discovered it was sent to me as an e-card link, which I somehow missed upon landing in London. It was an oversight but NOT a deliberate snub. This is the most important email I have ever missed,” he said.
However, he insisted that Adele didn’t storm out.
“In fact, it was the polar opposite. What was meant to be 20 minutes was extended to 29 minutes,” he claimed.
Doran who was back hosting his show this weekend also insisted he had just been missing from the show and was not formally suspended.
Adele’s label, Sony, refused to allow Seven Network to use the interview after the singer walked out.“I’m utterly confounded. I’ve implored Sony to release the interview,” he said.
