Adele Suing Mag For Fake Sex Tape Photos

Adele is on top of the world right now, at the height of her popularity and in her prime.

So of course, this means one thing: sex tape rumors!

Adele is suing a French magazine after it published fake photos it claimed came from a sex tape that Adele starred in. ‘Public’ magazine claimed the photos came form footage taken on a smart phone.

The photo on their cover features someone looking slightly like Adele with a couple of fingers in her mouth, the way people hail for cabs, in movies and TV shows at least.

Adele’s lawyer is now launching legal action against the French publication, which claims that it has over three million readers each week. In a statement to MailOnline, her lawyer said:

“We are informed that the French magazine ‘Public’ has today published images which it claims show our client in a sex tape. Our client has not appeared in a sex tape as claimed in the article. Our client does not appear in the photographs. Such claims are untrue and grossly defamatory. Our client is taking legal action in relation to this matter.”

Meanwhile, the actual Adele appears on the March cover of ‘Vogue,’ and her cover photo is causing some controversy, with readers saying she’s been made to look much thinner than she is.

“Thanks for this excellent interview, the best one I’ve read so far, that depicts her not only as a singer but as a person. However, the Cover photo is the opposite contrary, that’s the worst picture of Adele I’ve seen,” said one reader.

Frankly, I can’t seem relate to it and I just hope that it hasn’t been much photoshopped. Adele is a larger than life personality and this just doesn’t do her justice,” one reader wrote online.

In an interview with Anderson Cooper, Adele said: “I’ve never seen magazine covers and music videos and been like, I need to look like that if I want to be a success. Never. I don’t want to be some Skinny Minnie… I don’t want people confusing what it is I’m about.”
