Global icon Adele, 35, has been heralded as “one of the most successful female artists of all time” as well as one of the wealthiest Britons.
It’s been reported that Adele – full name Adele Laurie Blue Adkins – is one of the richest people in the UK and currently has a net worth that exceeds the likes of Niall Horan, Cara Delevingne and Harry Potter actors Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson.
Today (Friday, 19 May), the annual Sunday Times Rich List has revealed the estimated wealth of 35 Brits under the age of 35.
Only two musicians have made it into the top 10 this year — Suffolk-raised Ed Sheeran sits in seventh with £300 million while the aforementioned London-born singer has pulled in at ninth place.
Further down in the Rich List rankings are the likes of pop superstar Harry Styles (£150m), Boxer Anthony Joshua (£150m), and this year’s Met Gala co-chair, Dua Lipa (£75m).

According to the annual report, Adele has had her wealth estimated at a whopping £165m.
Compared to the 2022 version of the Rich List, she’s up by a stunning £15m.
According to The Times, Adele’s recent string of Nevada shows has contributed to her top 10 placement and are reportedly pulling in £500,000 a night for the full-time Los Angeles inhabitant.
The original show run saw the singer performing to 4,000 people for 34 nights at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
However, earlier this month, the Easy On Me lyricist confirmed that the Colosseum Theatre-based residency is going to be extended.
According to Sky News, the 35-year-old said: “Playing to 4,000 people for 34 nights is not enough, and I know that.
“I know it’s not enough, so I am coming back,” she added.
The official Adele website says that the new Weekends With Adele dates will run from Friday, June 16 until Saturday, November 4.
While the long-running residency has obviously been successful, it started with a wobble as Adele pulled the opening night.
Just 24 hours before the curtain call, she cancelled the evening as she was reportedly unhappy with the show’s set design.
The To Be Loved singer later described the decision as “the worst moment of [my] career.”
Despite the blip, Adele’s Las Vegas show has earned her a spot on the Rich List and has already been crowned as one of the industry’s top-selling artists.
Her fourth studio album, 30, was released in 2021 and won British Album of the Year at the 2022 Brit Awards.
