The manager of British singer Adele reportedly paid himself a whopping £10million last year despite no new music being released by the star.
Jonathan Dickins is reported to have awarded himself the sum after Adele’s management company September Management made £2million in profits across 10 months, along with £12million in cash reserves.
According to The Sun, despite Adele being down £7million from her £9million profit in 2019, September Management is still raking in big money.
Additionally, her second company Melted Stone Ltd. is apparently sitting on £44million in bank accounts.
The London-born star hasn’t released any new music since her acclaimed 2015 album 25, which included hit singles Hello and When We Were Young.
She previously released her critically acclaimed debut album 19 in 2008, followed by her recording-breaking follow-up, 21, in 2011.
When questioned when new music would be released on Instagram during the coronavirus pandemic, Adele replied: “Of course it’s not. Corona ain’t over. I’m quarantining. Wear a mask and be patient.”
Jonathan Dickins previously spoke with Newsweek about when Adele’s next album will be released.
He said: “It isn’t coming in September, it’ll be ready when it’s ready.
“We’re all in the same boat, you’re doing stuff and then all of a sudden, the world stops. It’ll come when it’s ready.
“I can’t put a date on that yet. We have music, but we’re still working.”
According to The Sun, he also said: “The sooner it comes out, the better.”
Mirror Online has reached out to Adele and Jonathan Atkins for comment on the report.
Adele has recently hit the headlines over her divorce from husband Simon Konecki, who she split with in April last year and with whom she shares son Angelo.
Since the split, Adele has shown off a notably slimmer physique on social media, prompting much speculation about how the Chasing Pavements star achieved her svelte new look.
The star has been rumoured to be dating British MC and rapper Skepta in recent months.
As the BBC replayed Adele’s own 2016 Glastonbury set back in June, the slimmed-down star posted images on her Instagram account of herself dancing and enjoying her old show.
Skepta commented on the post: “Finally got your Instagram password lol.”
The post saw much speculation that he was the one to take and upload the images.
Whatever happens, we can’t wait to see what Adele has up her sleeve next!
