British soul star Adele's ex-boyfriend demanded a slice of the royalties from her chart-topping album 21 after learning several of the tracks were inspired by their break-up.

Adele poured her emotions into her music after splitting from her unnamed partner and the melancholy record has sold millions of copies around the world since hitting shelves earlier this year.

Adele was subsequently stunned when her former lover contacted her and asked about receiving a payment from her earnings. She tells Britain's The Sun, "For about a week he was calling and was deadly serious about it. Finally, I said, ';Well, you made my life hell, so I lived it and now I deserve it.'

"He really thought he'd had some input into the creative process by being a p**ck. I'll give him this credit – he made me an adult and put me on the road that I'm traveling."
