Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has apologised to British singer Adele for calling her fat, and gifted her a collection of Chanel bags.

"He told his team to send Adele the best the fashion house have to offer after hearing she collected bags. He really wanted to make it up to her so they could maybe work together in the future.

"He could see her fronting a campaign for Chanel Mademoiselle bags when the contract with Blake Lively ends," thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.

"He's annoyed with himself because he ended up insulting her when he meant to compliment her. He thinks she's beautiful and calls her divine," the source added.

Soon after the Chanel designer made the personal remarks on the Grammy award winner, singer Madonna sprung to the defence of the British singer.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Madonna lashed out at the legendary fashion designer’s comments.

“That’s horrible. That’s ridiculous, that’s just the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard."

“I don’t like it when anybody says anything bad about anyone - I don’t like it. Adele’s a great talent and how much she weighs has nothing to do with it,” she said.

The 53-year-old star, who has won seven Grammys and two Brit awards too, advised Adele to stay on the right track.

“The thing for Adele to remember is at the end of the day, whether you rise or fall, it has so much to do with how you sustain yourself and keep your integrity and your inner strength.

"It is all about who you surround yourself with - friends and people who really do care about you, and care about your well-being beyond being a superstar. That’s the most important thing," she said.
