In this world, there are as*holes, and then there are as*holes. And the ex-boyfriend of Adele, the full-figured British singing sensation who was discovered by XL Recordings after she posted a three-song demo on MySpace, sounds like a special brand of as*hole, based solely on her claim that he’s now demanding money for providing the anguish in her life years ago that inspired many of the songs that have now become hits. In other words, he wants to receive royalty checks for having treated her like sh*t when they were dating.
Reports The Sun:
Adele said: “For about a week he was calling and was deadly serious about it.
“Finally, I said, ‘Well, you made my life hell, so I lived it and now I deserve it.’
“He really thought he’d had some input into the creative process by being a p****. I’ll give him this credit – he made me an adult and put me on the road that I’m travelling.”
Now it’s easy to see who inspired Adele to write lyrics like these from “Rolling in the Deep”:
Finally, I can see you crystal clear,
Go ahead and sell me out and a I’ll lay your sh*t bare,
See how I’ll leave with every piece of you,
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do…
Baby, I have no story to be told,
But I’ve heard one on you and I’m gonna make your head burn,
Think of me in the depths of your despair,
Make a home down there as mine sure won’t be shared
In other words, f*ck off, loser.
