Adele's ex wants a cut of her royalties

“Rumour Has It” that Adele’s ex-boyfriend is trying to get a piece of the Brit singer’s success.

According to U.K. paper The Sun, her ex feels that since Adele drew inspiration from their rocky relationship for her hit album “19,” he should get a cut of the royalties.

“For about a week he was calling and was deadly serious about it,” she told the paper. “Finally I said, 'Well you made my life hell, so I lived it and now I deserve it.'”

The 2008 album earned Adele two Grammys, one for best new artist and another for best pop vocal performance with "Chasing Pavements." Her latest offering, “21,” has been No. 1 for six non-consecutive weeks on the Billboard charts.

“He really thought he’d had some input into the creative process by being a p--,” Adele said, although there is one thing she'll give him credit for.

“He made me an adult," she tells the paper, "and put me on the road that I’m traveling.”

      Her hands are not fat, you must be a very shallow individual. Your body has nothing do to with a singing talent, unless you have to use you body to help promote your lack of singing talent. Adele doesn't have to use her body to promote her singing talent. She's the real thing, if Adele were purple, and had no hands, her records would still sell by the millions. I think her hands are quite lovely, she always has her fingernails done up so beautifully, and she's very beautiful as well as feminine. Adele was long over due, we finally got some real raw talent back into this world. The plastic folks in Hollywood were becoming sickening.

Ivory belongs in the same class as Adele's ex....SORE LOSERS!! Judging ppl because they are successful & you have been left behind is pathetic. Adele found her way to move on & it's quite lucritive. Apparently her ex's way of moving on wasn't lucritive & Ivory's life is only lucritive by putting others down so he/she can feel superior....& no I'm not in need of eating a salad Ivory cuz w/ppl like u I know that will be your reply.

    He's dreaming. I'm a Singer – Songwriter – Musician, Gallery Artist, Model and Scriptwriter. If he didn't write the song and or the music, nor does he have the copyright on it, he's out of luck. He just surfaced as the guy who did another woman wrong – which gives people like us something to converse about. He should have laid low.....now people will be pointing fingers at him.

    Oh god you are all idiots. I've browsed through the comments and noted some people on here incorrectly describe this as shared intellectual property, some want to talk about her weight, some just insult the other commenters, and some dont even know who adele is. Bottom line: she's an incredibly talented British singer who Beyonce describes as "having the voice of God". Her boyfriend dumped her and she wrote about HER OWN feelings and emotions, which can never be property of anyone else. Why the Tabloids even chose to cover this story is beyond me but British people have their own cup of tea. The argument is over let's all move on with our lives

    @arch what are you even talking about? Do you even know? Maybe you should have read the article before you commented on it, that would've also helped answer the questions you kept asking "who is she?" "what has she done?" She dated a guy, he clearly messed her over, she left him, wrote some successful songs, and became rich and famous for it. She has every right to leave someone that is hurting her in whatever way that may be. Everyone does. And based on her success that was probably the best decision she ever made. Musicians are always influenced by the people that come into their lives but they all shouldn't get money for it.

    Who is she? What does she do that is worthwhile? He wants part of her money. I can understand that because I can't believe he would want to be around her. She isn't anything to write home about! I didn't read the article because it didn't look worth anything, but if he was married and she made a ton of money during their marriage, then he should be able to get a good piece of the pie if there is no pre-nup and he has a good lawyer! If she didn't want to be with him she should have thought about it before making the move. Nowadays there isn't attempt at making relationships work, especially in the acting/singing business. It is like they try on someone and then if it fits they start living together after one date, then get married after two nights together. After about a week or two of screwing and playing around they realize it is worthless to be married so they split and immediately pickup with another person the next night. Sometimes it is a friend of the ex or whatever. There aren't any moral values with those types. They think they are so much better when in fact they would be in the gutter if not for their luck and favors they did for the producers and such..under the table! What has this girl ever done!

    That's why it's called "Ex".. Just because a person finds a new job and starts making money doesn't give anyone the right to have a share of that persons income, especially if you are an Ex-Boyfriend.. I find that not only outrageous, but also disrespectful and it crosses the line of being a decent human being. A persons income no matter how it is obtained is very personal and very private and she has every right to keep what belongs to her. If everyone in the world thought like this guy, you'd have people sitting at home all day without a real job and just cash in on everyone elses success. This is such a total scam and this guy really needs to go back to discipline school and learn how to be a real man. We all influence people some way or another, doesn't mean we have the right to take a share of that persons income. For an ex to come knocking on her door demanding a share, this is called greed and not love. Obviously shows that money is the only thing on this person mind. Also by doing this, what girl would ever want to date him if they knew that he is leaching off his Ex.

    Eminem was sued by his mother and his ex, his mother sued him for $10 mill plus $1 and Kim sued him for $10 mill. They both decided they were defamed in songs he preformed, they were obviously inspiration for a ton of lyrics over the years. He sings about someone that he had conflict with years ago, guess what that guy sued as well. But I'm of the opinion if you use the person then you need to pay the person, not the ridiculous sum Eminem was sued for but they should get something.

      The difference is....Eminem was sued for defamation. He used names and stated fact of events that happened. Everyone know who Kim is and what she did. I have no idea what Adele's ex's name is or what exactly their relationship was like.

    i want to know what happened in their marriage. Theres always two sides to every story. By the way if my memory is correct, Tom Clancy's wife fought to get all royalties from all the books he ever wrote, past and future. Tom once said the reason they divorced was because she never supported his writing and wanted him to get a real job.

      I take offense to your comment, Rodrigo. Kindly do not lump all women into one category. Just as most men are kind, compassionate human beings, so too are most women. I have grown tired of the juvenile stereotypes made by a handful of people in regards to this story and others. I will tell you the same thing my husband and I tell our children,"Most people are good, trustworthy, hardworking, and honest, however, there are bad people in the world as well. Some are men, some women, from all walks of life." As for Adele, I do not believe that her ex-boyfriend should receive a penny. If the roles were reversed I, would feel the same way-she should not receive a penny. To the handful of people who feel that cursing and putting others down is making you "look" tough-it is not. In all honesty it makes you look quite ignorant. Kindly take the time and look into what "respectfully disagreeing" means and actually apply it in the future. There is no reason for the vulgarity, ignorance and disrespect. Due to those people who actually are bad, there is more than enough hate and disrespect in our world let's not add to it, please?! Thank you.
