Adele stalked by eBayers

Adele has admitted that her increasing fame has led to her being stalked by fans intentent on taking photos of her and selling them on eBay.

The singer told The Sun that she caught someone taking a picture of her dog Louis Armstrong going to the toilet.

She said: 'The other day I was up north and there were these- well, I don't think they were fans actually, they were like eBayers.

'I'd be at the venue, they'd be there. I'd leave the venue and they'd be there. Then they started taking pictures of my dog and stuff like that. It was really weird.'

The singer went on to say: 'I was on my own taking Louis out for a walk. One of them just got in the lift with me and I got really panicky.

'Luckily there was a cleaner on the floor I was on. I was just thinking, imagine being someone like Cheryl Cole or Katy Perry or Gaga, where you've got to be conniving to have a normal day.

'That scares the life out of me. I don't think I'd be able to carry on doing music if it got to that point.'
