Adele

Adele, the singer, has become the wealthiest young British musician with a £20 million fortune, according to the latest edition of the Sunday Times Rich List.
At the tender age of 23, the multi-Grammy winner witnessed her fortune grow by £14million in a year.
Figures compiled by the Sunday paper disclosed that British songstresses were beating their male counterparts in the money charts.
The latest figures, released on Thursday ahead of the full publication at the end of the month, show Adele heading the female-dominated list of the UK’s richest young musicians.
The London-born singer has amassed a bigger fortune than Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis and Katie Melua, the figures in this year’s Sunday Times Rich List.
But Britain’s leading men remain at the top of the country’s wealthiest screen stars. Despite the Harry Potter film franchise coming to an end, its star Daniel Radcliffe remains the richest young actor.
The 22-year-old is sitting on a personal fortune of £54 million, up from 48 million in 2011, according to the Sunday Times.
Robert Pattinson, the Twilight heartthrob, comes second in the list, which looks at actors and actresses aged 30 and under.
Keira Knightley, who is the third richest young British movie star, tops the list when it comes to models.
The face of Chanel is worth £30 million, above Kiera Chaplin, the model granddaughter of silent movie giant Charlie.
Radcliffe’s former co-star Emma Watson has seen her Potter millions supplemented by a subsequent career modelling Burberry, catapulting her to the position of third richest British model, with £26 million.
But it is Adele who has seen possibly the biggest leap in fortune amongst Britain’s bright young things.
Her personal fortune has increased by £14 million over the past year, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
Of the top ten wealthiest young musicians, eight are women, with R ‘n’ B star Craig David and Scottish singer Paolo Nutini ensuring it is not a female only list.
The Sunday Times Rich List will be published in full on April 29.
