Adele is one of the most talked-about women in the world, loved all over the world for her infectious laugh, self-proclaimed 'potty mouth' and of course her voice, providing the soundtrack to all of our break ups.

This week, the 30-year-old made news as it was revealed that she and Simon Konecki were getting a divorce, with multiple publications citing the settlement at $180 million.

It's hardly surprising therefore that people are now holding a magnifying glass over Adele's net worth.

But what is the 'Someone Like You' singer actually worth?

The Tottenham-born star has had us singing along to her chart-toppers, not only in the shower, but at her tours too. So while her selling-like-hot-cake albums gave her a cool $69 million, her net worth rocketed to a staggering $182 million, solely due to her tours.

*Taps at calculator frantically*

Now, let’s factor in her multiple real estate ventures: a West London apartment, two adjacent townhouses in Kensington, as well as a Beverly Hills Mansion. The singer has also pocketed a profit of $1.1 million through the buying and selling of properties in Brighton and Sussex over the years. Peppering her portfolio with further profit, only this February she sold another mansion in East Sussex for $2.9 million.

Taking that into account, it’s safe to say that Adele is doing OK on the bank account front.

Now, if you'll excuse us we're off to get our hearts broken and write some smash hit ballads.
