Adele seen smoking after throat surgery

Adele has reportedly been seen smoking despite recently undergoing throat surgery.

The British singing sensation is apparently struggling to kick her habit, according to Life & Style.

The 23-year-old had microsurgery to remove a benign polyp from her vocal cords two months ago which forced her to cancel several tour dates.

But an eyewitness told the publication that during a night out with new boyfriend Simon Konecki recently, she was seen smoking.

"Adele and Simon had dinner at Bobby Rubino's in Pompano Beach, Florida on January 1," the bystander said.

"Right after they were done, she walked out of the place and had a cigarette outside."

And 10 days after arriving back to London, the Someone Like You songstress was also seen smoking in a car.

Just before her surgery Adele said she had "absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly" or "risk damaging my voice forever".

Adele spoke last year of an earlier attempt to give up smoking which she called "f***ing grim''.

"My voice was better when I wasn't smoking,'' she told Glamour magazine.

"Within a week I noticed it had changed, but I'd rather my voice be a bit s**t so I can have a f***ing laugh."
