LONDON, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Irish rocker Bob Geldof says British recording star Adele ignored his phone calls about taking part in this weekend's Band Aid 30 recording of "Do They Know It's Christmas?"
"Adele is doing nothing. She's not answering the phone," Geldof told Britain's The Sun newspaper for Sunday's edition.
"She's not writing. She's not recording. She doesn't want to be bothered by anyone. She won't pick up the phone to her manager. She's bringing up a family, you know," he added. "Some people just don't want to do it... Of course, they agree with it, but it's not their way of doing something."
Adele's representative denied the singer avoided Geldof or giving him an answer about the project, which was orchestrated to raise money for people impacted by the Ebola virus and recorded Saturday in London.
"Bob and the organizers spoke directly with her management, but, at no point, was she confirmed. Adele is supporting Oxfam's Ebola Appeal with a donation," Adele's publicist told the newspaper.
The 26-year-old, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter gave birth to her first child, a son, in 2012.
