Soul singer Adele seemingly yelled at R&B star Chris Brown for not giving a standing ovation to fellow nominee Frank Ocean as he walked up to accept his Grammy.
A photo showing Adele, 24, giving Brown a tongue lashing at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards has emerged, giving the idea that the ‘Rolling in the Deep’ hitmaker cornered him moments after he snubbed singer-songwriter Ocean by sitting through the standing ovation.
Ocean and Brown were both nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album Award.
When Ocean’s name was announced as the winner, the audience rose to applaud him. Brown, 23, applauded but stayed in his seat as the first-time Grammy winner made his way to the stage.
Adele’s seat was across the aisle, just metres from Brown and cameras caught her glaring at him and shaking her head.
Cameras didn’t pick up what Adele said, but Brown’s body language was uncomfortable.
Last month Brown and Ocean, 25, got into a fight outside a Los Angeles recording studio.
