Adele's toddler son wins five-figure damages from paparazzi

The toddler son of singer Adele has accepted a five-figure sum in damages in settlement of a privacy case brought by his parents over paparazzi photos of his “milestone moments”.

Lawyers for Adele, who launched the proceedings with her partner Simon Konecki, said she was emphatic that two-year-old Angelo Adkins was not and must never be “public property”.

“It is a matter of profound sadness that many of his milestone moments, such as his first family outing and his first trip to playgroup, were photographed and published worldwide expressly against his family’s wishes. Adele and Simon never encourage such photos. Quite the opposite”, solicitor Jenny Afia told Mr Justice Bean in London today.

Corbis Images UK Limited had offered to pay damages and legal costs to Angelo and agreed not to use the photos at issue again, she added.
