Karl Lagerfeld: I never said Adele was fat

Los Angeles - Karl Lagerfeld has defended his comments about Adele's weight.

The Chanel creative director - who has claimed his remarks calling the singer "a little too fat" were taken out of context - insists that although Adele is a "beautiful girl", she needed to lose weight because she was "a little roundish".

Speaking on CNN's Fashion: Backstage Pass, he said: "I never said that she was fat, I said that she was a little roundish.

"A little roundish is not fat. But for such a beautiful girl, after that she lost eight kilos, so I think the message was not that bad."

Following Karl's comments last year, Adele, 25, insisted she had never aspired to be stick-thin.

She said: "I'd lose weight if I was an actress and had to play a role where you're supposed to be 40 pounds lighter, but weight has nothing to do with my career.

"Even when I was signing [a contract], most of the industry knew if anyone ever dared say [lose weight] to me, they wouldn't be working with me.”
