Adele - Adele earns £30m without new tours or albums

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.

'Material Girl' Madonna brings in an estimated £247,000, while collectively One Direction earn £164,000.

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.
