Adele is RICH. Like really, really rich, thanks to the success of her last album, 21. Which, by the way, is four years old at this point (can you believe it?!). However, despite the fact that she hasn’t toured or done much of of anything at all in the past couple of years, professionally speaking, she still makes a whopping £80,000 PER DAY. That’s the equivalent of about $128k, by the way.
The record earned her £54million the 22 months up until December 2013 through her companies Melted Stone and Melted Stone Publishing.
Melted Stone made £30million over 14 months up until April 2013 with another £8million throughout the rest of the year and Adele paid herself a dividend of £5.2million in the second half of 2013 with a salary of £5.6million in the first half and £2.86million in the latest accounting period.
Her company Melted Stone Publishing made £14.4million and between them the two firms made £13.1 million profit which is a nice little sum for Adele to keep under her bed.
That’s… insane. And I need Adele to cut me a check real quick. No wonder she’s not in a hurry to release her next album!
