The British superstar has endured a strained relationship with her dad Marc Evans for years and they fell out again in 2012, when he claimed Adele was struggling to find love because he abandoned the singer and her mother when she was a child.

The Hello hitmaker famously insisted she would spit on him if they ever crossed paths in the street, but by 2015, they had reconciled.

"We've patched things up, everything's fine," Marc told The Sun on Sunday newspaper at the time, as Adele prepared to release 25, her first album in four years.

However, it appears things have since soured once again as Adele made it clear she has no love for her real dad as she accepted the Record of the Year prize for 25 at the Grammy Awards on Sunday (12Feb17).

As she stepped up to the podium at Los Angeles' Staples Center, Adele heaped praise on her manager Jonathan DICkins, insisting she wouldn't be standing on the Grammys stage again without his help.

"Thank you to my manager, because the comeback, as it were, was completely masterminded by him, and you executed it incredibly and I owe you everything," she gushed. "We've been together for 10 years and I love you like you're my dad, I love you so so much."

"I don't love my dad, that's the thing, but that doesn't mean a lot, but I love you like I would love my dad...," she explained, before exclaiming, "Oh, b**ody hell!"

Adele also celebrated the work of Beyonce after beating the pregnant pop superstar to Record of the Year.

Concluding her speech, she said, "My dream and my idol is Queen Bey, and I adore you. You move my soul every single day and you have done for the last 17 years. I adore you and I want you to be my mummy, alright?"

Adele swept all five categories she was nominated for, including Song of the Year for Hello and Album of the Year for 25, both of which Beyonce had been shortlisted for as well. The wins have put her in the Grammy history books as the only artist to have won Song, Album and Record of the Year twice. She is also the second female to win the Album of the Year twice following Taylor Swift.

The Brit also dedicated her Album of the Year honour to Beyonce, who applauded Adele from the front row as tears streamed down her face, and was so overcome with emotion she managed to break her trophy in half.
