For those of you who are unaware, Adele just won a five-figure sum in damages after paparazzi published photographs of her son, Angelo from last summer. Jenny Afia, Adele's lawyer, stated that Adele insisted Angelo never become "public property". She continued, "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 damages from the settlement with photo agency Corbis Images UK will be held in a trust for Angelo, and the agency agreed not to use the photos again.
We are very happy to hear that Adele has taken action against those who wish to invade her personal, private life, which she is very protective of. Out of respect for Adele, Simon, and Angelo, we have removed any images previously posted on the Wiki of Angelo because we feel that if any images of Angelo should be used, they should be images that Adele is aware of and shares with us herself. No images taken by the paparazzi of Angelo will be allowed on the site. We feel that as fans of Adele, we should respect her family's wishes by removing the images and not using them as a visual aid for the article on Angelo. We have also shortened the article on Angelo while still keeping relevant information, again out of respect for Adele.
Please keep in mind Adele's wishes to keep her private life private when using the site out of respect for your fellow Daydreamers, and Adele and her family as well. Thank you!
