Adele gives her money away to friends.

The 23-year-old singer had a tough upbringing so since finding success, she likes to help as many people as possible with her wealth.

She said: "The cash has started trickling in, but I don't come from any money so I help people. I give money to charity and to friends and family."

However, the 'Rolling In The Deep' hitmaker is looking forward to boosting her wealth so she can take a break - though she insists she will no longer employ people to do her chores once she has the time to do so herself.

She told Britain's Glamour magazine: "I have an assistant but I do my own washing. My auntie cleans for me, but I love a good clean as well.

"And when all these squillion pounds come in, I'm having a f***ing break so I won't need any help.

"I don't need assistance getting myself to the pub."
