Adele says her ex wants royalties from success

Adele has revealed that her ex-boyfriend chased her for royalties after she first enjoyed success with debut album '19'.

The 'Someone Like You' star said that her former lover - who she has refused to name - repeatedly called her claiming she owed him money for the songs she wrote about their failed romance.

'For about a week he was calling and was deadly serious about it,' she told The Sun.

'Finally, I said, 'Well, you made my life hell, so I lived it and now I deserve it.'

'He really thought he'd had some input into the creative process by being a p****. I'll give him this credit - he made me an adult and put me on the road that I'm travelling.'

Her 2008 LP debuted at Number One in the UK album chart and her 2011 follow-up '21' has now spent 14 weeks at the top of the chart.
