As Techdirt points out, this is a few weeks old, but still worth mentioning. In this litigious society we live in, it seems that exes are taking it a little too far. As if a breakup isn't bad enough, the person who caused the heartache tries to sue you for ownership of the songs you wrote because of the breakup.
Adele's ex is claiming he "inspired" the songs and therefore should get partial ownership. Isn't he embarrassed to make such a claim? Isn't he embarrassed that he caused such pain? Guess not. He wants a cut of the royalties.
Adele's response to him: Well, you made my life hell, so I lived it and now I deserve it.
