Adele has denied being involved in an argument with fellow singer Chris Brown at the Grammy Awards this past weekend.

Rumours that Adele shouted at Brown following his refusal to applaud winner Frank Ocean, with whom he was recently involved in altercation, circulated when the picture above was published. However, posting a message on Twitter herself, Adele denied the stories and said that they were both complimenting one another at the time the picture was taken.

Getty photographer Christopher Polk is believed to have taken the picture at 6:47pm, before Brown allegedly refused to applaud Ocean. Adele and Brown posed happily for a picture together shortly after the first image was taken. The row between Brown and Ocean follows a brawl at a recording studio in Los Angeles earlier this month involving both artists and their entourages.

Meanwhile, Vitalii Sediuk, the Ukrainian TV presenter arrested for trying to get on stage when Adele won the Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance has spoken about sneaking into the ceremony. Sediuk, who made the news in 2011 when he handed Madonna a bunch of hydrangeas during a press conference, told the Hollywood Reporter that he had not planned to get up on stage, but did it on the spur of the moment. "The idea to go on the stage came up at the last second. To be honest, Adele is my favorite singer. So when I heard her name, I came up with this idea to go up on the stage and say what I said. I pretended this was an award for me, and then I said, 'Thank you, Adele. You’re my inspiration.'"

Hilarious stuff.
