Rumours the 'Someone Like You' singer would perform for the First Lady have now been called "false".
The White House has denied speculation that both Adele and Beyonce have been asked to sing at First Lady Michelle Obama's 50th birthday party next year.
US President Barack Obama's wife turns 50 in January 2014 and rumours this week suggested she had confirmed both good friend Beyonce and 'Rolling In The Deep' singer Adele to perform at a star-studded bash to mark the occasion.
However, this rumour has now been categorically denied as false, following the story broken in the Mail On Sunday this past weekend.
"The is 100% false," a spokesperson for the White House told NBC News this week, in the wake of the widespread reports. "It was fabricated by a British tabloid."
Check out a teaser picture Beyonce posted on her Tumblr while rehearsing for her 'The Mrs. Carter Show' world tour below:
The two artists were said to be favourite of First Lady Michelle, who is well known to be close with Beyonce and often praises the 'Countdown' singer for being a good role model.
'Someone Like You' singer Adele is rumoured to have also been asked to sing at the wedding of former Friends star Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux.
Adele made her live comeback at last month's Oscars 2013 ceremony where she sang her Academy Award winning hit 'Skyfall' live.
