'Skyfall' hitmaker Adele has earned £30 million through her Melted Stone company over the last financial year - taking home £12.1 million - despite not touring or releasing any new music.
Adele earned £30 million in 2013 without touring or releasing any music.
The 'Skyfall' singer's Melted Stone company revealed a turnover of £30,475,299 for the past financial year, which was filed this week with Companies House.
According to reports in The Sun newspaper, Adele took home £12.1 million, which included a £4.9 million pay package and a £7.2 million dividend.
Her huge income was earned despite not releasing any albums or singles, and she didn't go on the road to play a run of live shows.
However, the success of her album '21' has boosted her bank balance, despite being released three years ago.
Despite a year of relative inactivity, the £30 million equates to almost £84,000, although this is still a lower figure than some of her fellow pop stars.
However, her predicted daily earnings are still more than retired soccer superstar David Beckham, whose predicted total £79,000.
Although Adele has been quiet musically for a while, she has been raising her 16-month-old son Angelo, with work now starting on her highly-anticipated third album.
