NEW YORK (NEWS): British superstar singer Adele, who is one of the biggest musicians in the world now, has demanded $150,000 per minute from a wealthy London businessman to perform at his daughter’s wedding.
Adele, who was the star at this year’s Academy Awards where she performed her hit `Skyfall’, was reportedly approached by fruit juice tycoon Vivian Imerman who wanted her to perform at his youngest daughter’s wedding.
The tycoon, who is worth over $600 million, had Amy Winehouse perform at his eldest daughter’s marriage three years ago. Now he wanted to fulfill his youngest daughter’s wish that Adele sing at her wedding to be held at Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
But tycoon and his wealthy were shocked when Adele told them that she will charge $150,000 per minute.
The Daily Star told a source close to the tycoon as saying, “Vivian is planning a lavish wedding. He paid Amy Winehouse thousands to perform at his eldest daughter Bianca’s wedding three years ago. He hoped to do the same again with Adele.
“But he was surprised when he was told she’d cost £2.5m. Despite his bulging bank balance even he thought it was too expensive and is looking at other artists.’’
Adele has just won an Academy Award and the Golden Globe Award for Bets Original Song for her song `Skyfall.’
The song has been written for Skyfall – the 23rd James Bond film.
