Adele's infant son wins a five-figure case against paparazzi

By Mila Whiteley,

Lawyers working on the behalf of Adele’s son Angelo Adkins brought a privacy case against photo agency Corbis Images UK Limited, and won a five-figure sum in damages for pictures taken of the child.

Adele and her partner, Simon Konecki, brought the case against Corbis Images UK Limited on behalf of their son due to pictures taken in June and November 2013, reports BBC News. The photo agency has not only agreed to pay for damages for the pictures and legal costs, but also agreed to not use the photos again.

Jenny Afia, Adele’s solicitor, spoke to the High Court in London about the matter. "It is a matter of profound sadness that many of his milestone moments, such as his first family outing and his first trip to playgroup, were photographed and published worldwide expressly against his family's wishes," Afia said.

According to Afia, Angelo’s parents will be keeping the money received in a trust for their son.

Meanwhile, Adele fans everywhere eagerly await news of Adele’s third album after the smash hit 21. Despite rumors of a new album allegedly called 25, according to TheCelebrityCafe.com, any reports of a world tour and album being released in 2015 are false.
