She may have won six Grammy awards and may have recently bought a mansion worth £7 million in Sussex but British singer Adele finds £75 too steep a price to pay for landing her helicopter in a hotel field.
Hotelier Peter Hands was apparently surprised when he received a call asking if the 23-year-old Grammy winner's copter could land on his helipad in the heart of the Forest of Dean, Glos. But what shocked him was when the caller told him £75 was too expensive a fee for the landing, reported Daily Mail.
"We had a call last Sunday morning asking if her helicopter could land on our helipad by the hotel and how much it would cost," Hands, who runs the Speech House Hotel near Cinderford told Daily Mail. "When I told him there was a standard £75 fee he said that was too much - which is a bit rich coming from one of today's most successful multi millionaire pop stars," he added.
While it's not certain whether the star came to Forest Dean at all but it sure is known that the star has a chopper and a helipad of her own.
