Adele’s estranged father, Mark Evans, is said to have called the police on his next door neighbor in Bridgend, south Wales, for playing his famous daughter’s songs.
Mark, 56 – who left his family when the superstar singer was just three, leaving his mother Penny Adkins to raise him alone – would not have been very happy when Adele’s superfan Keeley Fry started to explode his tubes.
Mother-of-one Keeley, 21, told The Sun: “I love singing Adele’s songs. All my friends say I look like him. I love playing his songs too. I play them loud but not as bad as he claims.

Keeley told the post she moved in next to Mark and his wife two years ago, saying they quickly started having issues with each other.
She said: “He asked me not to sing so loud or to play my music loud. He said it affected his sleep and it was very disturbing. I was surprised because I’m a big fan of Adele and most of the time I play her songs and sing them along with them.
“I thought he would appreciate it, not complain. I think he has a problem with me because I’m a big fan of Adele. I’m nervous even to leave the house in case he or his wife comes up to me. It has been an absolute nightmare.

A spokesperson for South Wales Police said: ‘The local neighborhood police team are aware and are organizing to speak to both sides to resolve the issue. “
In 2013, Mark sat down for an interview with The Mail on Sunday, in which he expressed deep regret for his now non-existent relationship with Adele, 32.
In it, he took full responsibility for his failures as a father – stepping out when his daughter was three, leaving her mother Penny to raise him on her own.
Despite his relationship breakdown with Penny, Mark remained close to Adele, who would be spending school holidays in Wales with her grandparents Rose and John Evans and her half-brother Cameron, now 26.

He admitted to losing touch with his daughter when he suffered depression following the death of Adele John’s grandfather in 1999 and the breakdown of a relationship that sparked a long battle with alcoholism. .
But after a three-year hiatus, father and daughter were reunited when Adele was 15 and he became her most loyal fan, proudly watching his career take off with the release of the critically acclaimed debut album 19 in 2008.
“When Adele was growing up I wasn’t a good example of what a father should be, but I always kept in touch and saw her regularly. She came to stay with me and my parents on weekends and school holidays and we were very close, ”said Mark.
“Things took a turn for the worse when she was 12 because I had issues to deal with, including the death of my dad and my closest friend, but we got over that and were best friends again. the age of 15.
Regret: In 2013, Mark sat down for an interview with The Mail on Sunday, in which he expressed deep regret for his now non-existent relationship with Adele, 32.
‘I remember trying to explain my absence to her at the time and she interrupted and said,’ It’s okay daddy, I love you. Since then, we’ve always gotten along well and no one has appreciated his success more than me.
But the relationship took a turn in 2011, after the release of Adele’s second album 21 – which produced the hits Rolling In The Deep and Someone Like You – when he sat down for an interview about their relationship despite his advice against it.
While the mother-of-one enjoys worldwide fame and success, Mark also claimed in the interview that her talents come from her side of the family.
He said at the time, “My mother has an angelic voice and still sings in our local church choir, All Saints. She took me every Sunday.
“I practiced during the week and was a solo singer. I sounded like Aled Jones until my voice broke and then they found someone else and I switched to jazz.
“I loved singing so much that I had planned to go to Welsh School of Music and Drama after school. The problem was I didn’t have any confidence and I bottled it. Thank goodness Adele picked up where I left off and did something with the voice of the family.
