The `Someone Like You` hitmaker reportedly makes £41,000 a day, according to accounts for the 24-year-old`s company Melted Stone Ltd, which show she has £10.3 million in the bank and a further £4.6 million due in royalties.
Her huge fortune is down to the phenomenal success of her second album `21`, which has sold 25 million copies worldwide, outselling her debut `19` three times over. The soulful singer`s accounts were worth £341,000 last year before her music took off in America.
She recently splashed out £600,000 to buy her hardworking single mother Penny Adkins a plush new pad in Notting Hill, west London, as a thank you for working two jobs to support her daughter`s ambitions to become a star.
Adele - who lives in a ten-bedroom mansion in Surrey with her fiancé Simon Konecki and her four-month-old son Angelo James - is currently renting Sir Paul McCartney`s old Los Angeles mansion for £47,000 a month while she rehearses for the Oscars.
She is due to serenade the crowd with hit song `Skyfall` as part of the 50th anniversary James Bond celebrations on February 24 and is said to be extremely anxious about her performance.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Adele is really nervous about her Oscars performance, so decided against staying in a hotel where there would be lots of people around.
"The property`s up in the hills so guarantees her privacy. And what better place to get musical inspiration than an ex-Beatle`s home."
