The trappings of being the most famous singer in the world are catching up to Adele and she’s not going to take it or allow her good name and image to be sullied.

The singer has quickly launched a lawsuit against French magazine Public after it published photos that it claims were taken from a sex tape featuring the the six-time 2012 Grammy Award winner.

Adele’s lawyer issued a statement to The Daily Mail, which read as follows:

“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 it claimed in the article. Our client does not appear in the photographs.

Such claims are untrue and grossly defamatory. Our client is taking legal action in relation to this matter.”

Damn. Adele is establishing that you do not want to mess with her. A sex tape so isn’t the singer’s style, either. Tsk, tsk, Public magazine.

The singer has gone on record many times to say that flashing skin and her boobs or having a gimmick is so not what she is about and that she doesn’t want the nonsense that comes with pop superstardom. But sadly, she is not immune to a magazine making false claims and headlines in order to move copies on the back of her name and her massive fame.

Hopefully, this rubbish, to borrow one of Adele’s words, doesn’t soil her joy over scooping up two armfuls of Grammys last weekend in Los Angeles, which was accompanied by her giving the most anticipated and enjoyed performance of the night.

We’re expecting an apology to be issued by Public sooner than later over this media gaffe.
