Adele’s One-Year Old Just Won His First Lawsuit, So Even Her Baby Is Better Than You

Adele flipping off the audience in GIFLet’s pull your baby book off the shelf and look through some milestones, okay? Oh look, here’s you eating solid food for the first time! And a picture of you learning to crawl! And oh! Here’s a great one of you winning your first lawsuit when you were one year old!

Wait, did that not go on in your household? It didn’t happen at mine, but I figured that was just a fluke, because it happened at Adele‘s, and I can’t handle any more reasons to feel intimidated by her and her family. It’s painful enough that she’s a platinum-selling artist, halfway to an EGOT, married with a baby and younger than me…does said baby really need to be a legal genius as well? That seems like overkill.

I’m exaggerating slightly, so you can clear the image of little Angelo James Konecki holding court from the prosecutor’s bench from your brain, but he really did win a lawsuit! It was against Corbis Images UK, a paparazzi agency that photographed private family moments and sold them for profit, even though Adele had made it very clear that she never wanted Angelo to be ‘public property’. According to the family’s lawyer:

“It is a matter of profound sadness that many of his milestone moments, such as his first family outing and his first trip to playgroup, were photographed and published worldwide expressly against his family’s wishes.”

The amount of the settlement was five-figures, and will be put into a trust fund for Angelo, who turns two in October, a milestone he’ll likely celebrate by publishing in a trade magazine or getting tenure at a university, now that he has a court victory under his belt diaper.
