The 'Rolling in the Deep' hitmaker debunks the sex tape report and has hired a lawyer in a preparation to file lawsuit against the magazine which spread the rumor.
has responded to claims that she has a sex tape and it has leaked. She denies the rumor, and plans to file a lawsuit against Public, the magazine publishing fake photos that they claimed to be taken from a leaked sex tape featuring the soul/jazz singer.
Adele teams up with law firm Schillings to take legal action against the French publication. "We are informed that the French magazine Public has today published images which it claims show our client in a sex tape," her legal team tells Mail Online.
"Our client has not appeared in a sex tape as claimed in the article. Our client does not appear in the photographs," the law firm additionally informs. "Such claims are grossly defamatory. Our client is taking legal action in relation to this matter."
In addition to the denial and complaint issued by Schillings, the representative of the 23-year-old artist sets the record straight by saying that the article on the latest issue of Public was "untrue and grossly defamatory." The spokesman also stated that it's "100 percent false."
Earlier this month, Public put a headline which read "Exclusif! Adele La sex tape!" on its cover along with an image of a woman who was said to be Adele. The magazine also featured her in three pages of spread complete with video stills from the tape. Additionally, a source who claimed to be her close friend told Public that she was devastated.
