Adele's ex-boyfriend demands '19' album royalties - Tabloid Hell
Singer's former flame suggests he should get cash for inspiring debut album
The singer should be happy after her latest album, ‘21’, clocked up its 14th week at the summit of the UK charts last week. ‘19’ – which was released in 2008 - is currently occupying the Number Three slot. But according to the tabs today (May 10) she’s furious that her former partner is trying to claim the credit for her initial success – as well as a cut of the royalties.
She is quoted in The Sun as saying: “For about a week he was calling and was deadly serious about it. Finally, I said ‘Well, you made my life hell, so I lived it and now I deserve it'."
She added: "He really thought he’d had some input into the creative process by being a prick. I’ll give him the credit – he made me an adult, and put me on the road that I’m travelling.”
