Singer Adele is set to sue a French magazine after it published fake photos claiming that it came from a sex tape starring the award-winning star. The 23-year-old immediately rubbished reports that it was her in the images, which was claimed came from a footage taken on a phone.
It comes just days after the Someone Like You singer scooped six Grammy Awards and is likely to leave her legions of loyal fans shocked. Adele’s lawyer Schillings is now launching legal action against the French publication, which claims to have more than three million readers each week.
A statement reads, “We are informed that the French magazine Public has today published images which it claims show our client in a sex tape. Our client has not appeared in a sex tape as claimed in the article. Such claims are untrue and grossly defamatory. Our client is taking legal action in relation to this matter.”
Although the fake photos may cause slight embarrassment to Adele, they are unlikely to stop her enjoying what has so far been an incredible year. Professionally she has made a startling comeback following throat surgery. And personally, she has just moved into a new £15,000-a-month mansion.
