ADELE has been visiting a hypnotherapist to cure her stage fright.
The star has been having the treatment in LA in a bid to conquer her anxiety over her upcoming Oscars performance.
Adele is booked to perform her Bond theme Skyfall at the ceremony on February 24 – where it is up for Best Song – but is so scared about it that she’s suffering from panic attacks and sleepless nights.
Pals say the nerves have got worse since she heard her idol BARBRA STREISAND will also be singing.
A source said: “A friend in LA recommended the hypnotherapist because Adele was getting so nervous about the gig.
British singer Adele is allegedly seeking hypnotherapy to help overcome stage-fright in the run up to the Oscars.
Adele, winner of numerous Grammys, Brits, world records and now an Oscar nomination, is due to perform her song Skyfall at the Oscars on February 24. Unfortunately, the 24-year-old mother of one has a history of crippling stage-fright.
Given her incredible talent and global success, Adele isn’t the first person you’d expect to shy away from public performance.
However, this is not the first time she’s been struck down with debilitating stage-fright. In 2011, Adele was so afraid to perform at the Grammys that she spent much of the evening vomiting in the toilet.
