Adele has paid back £2.5million in tax, after mistakenly being overpaid by one of the two companies she set up.

The ‘Hello’ singer received £7million from the company, according to reports, which is more than strict rules allow.

The Sun has reported that when the mistake was spotted by accounts, Adele paid back a large portion of the cash.

Her spokesperson confirmed to the paper: “All relevant disclosures have been made in the ­company accounts. As clearly stated within the report, the position has been resolved.”

It is not unusual for celebrities to set up companies in order to control their finances, and Graham Norton and Chris Evans are among the many stars who have done so.

Adele is still riding high following the huge success of her latest album ‘25’, and the superstar is currently midway through a mammoth world tour to support it.

In just a matter of days though, she’ll be back in the UK to give her first ever performance at Glastonbury, where she’ll headline the Pyramid stage. No pressure then...
