Adele Awarded Five-Figure In Son's Photos Case

(Radio.com) Adele doesn't want someone like you to see photos of her two-year-old son, Angelo, so she's taken legal action to protect his right to privacy. And like everyone else in the world, the court is siding with the 21 singer.

According to the BBC, Adele Adkins and her partner, Simon Konecki, brought a case against photo agency Corbis Images UK Limited over pictures of their son, Angelo Adkins' "milestone moments." The photo agency took the photos in June and November 2013 without the couple's permission and then sold them to the English press.

In court, Adele's solicitor-the singer was not present-told the High Court in London that her son "was not and must never be public property." Her solicitor also said Adele was saddened that her son's "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."

"These images were taken during private, recreational time unconnected with professional or public engagements," the solicitor said in court. "They represent a clear infringement of our client's right to privacy."

The solicitor also stated that it was Adele and Konecki's view that "these images were of routine, everyday family occasions which the paparazzi has no right to intrude upon, profit from and file away in picture libraries for future reference and use." more on this story
