We know Karl Lagerfeld has a reputation for making controversial statements, but the fashion designer has overstepped the mark this time by branding Adele ‘a little too fat’.

Chanel’s main man made the outrageous comment in a recent interview with the Metro.

When asked what he though about Lana Del Rey he said: "I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. But as a modern singer she is not bad. The thing at the moment is Adele.

"She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice."

Talking about her size the Someone Like You Singer has previously said: "I have insecurities of course, but I don't hang out with anyone who points them out to me."

We’re pretty sure Adele, who has been lined up for Vogue US’ March cover (you listening, Lagerfeld?!), won’t take these ridiculous comments to heart.

But still, so rude!
