Heat (UK) - - Rich List 2018 -

HOW SHE MADE IT: News­flash: Adele is rich. This is the third year run­ning she’s topped our 30-and-un­der chart, and no won­der. Although she’s hardly lifted a fin­ger since fin­ish­ing her world tour at Wem­b­ley Sta­dium in sum­mer 2017, she still man­ages to be a cash-mag­net – in 2017 alone, she pock­eted £9m from record sales, while that tour earned her a mas­sive £42m. Next? There’s talk of a £22m year­long Ve­gas res­i­dency. HOW SHE SPENDS IT: She’s cur­rently en­joy­ing the quiet life in Cal­i­for­nia, re­cently turn­ing down a £1m pri­vate gig, be­cause she was busy weed­ing her gar­den. But there are the oc­ca­sional splashes – she staged a no-ex­penses-spared Ti­tanic-themed party for her 30th birth­day (no Colin the Cater­pil­lar cake for her), and re­cently paid for best friend Alan Carr’s wed­ding. Held in the grounds of her LA man­sion, she even be­came or­dained as a min­is­ter to of­fi­ci­ate. Long may she reign.
