Adele's manager Jonathan Dickins' company reportedly earned $37,060 (Sh4 million) per day in 2019 despite the star not releasing a song since 2015. The firm, September Management Ltd, has filed yearly paperwork to Companies House and has declared impressive dividends for that year. The company has assets worth nearly $40million, meaning they post weekly profits of close to $269,000.
According to The Sun, the Something About You singer's manager is still raking it in despite Adele keeping a low profile throughout 2019. He paid himself $8 million more than the global mega star, the report suggests.
It was revealed last year that Londoner Adele took a whopping $13million pay cut. Despite the reduction, the 32-year-old singer still paid herself dividends of $6.41 million via two of her companies last year. But public financial records show figures to down from the incredible $19.4 million she made in 2018.
The music world is bracing itself for the release of her latest album, first expected last year but sure now to land in 2021. Her last album 25 – which hit the shelves in 2015 – sold 22 million copies worldwide. Adele "laid down some initial tracks" for her upcoming record in a secret recording session recently, it has been claimed.
Drummer Matt Chamberlain told the Eddie Trunk podcast: "I just got to work on some new music for Adele. To hear that voice in my headphones was getting me chills. It was just so powerful and emotive. You know her voice, but to be across the room from somebody doing that, it's just insane. You hear it on the radio and whatever and you go, 'Yeah, it's really good' but to be in the room with these people and feel that energy, it's just so heavy."
In November, the songstress wowed fans with her seven-stone weight loss as she hosted Saturday Night Live in the US.
Then she teased: "I'm going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am! Peace out till next year."
