She has millions in the bank, but singer Adele refused to land her helicopter in a hotel field - because the £75 fee was 'too expensive'.
Hotelier Peter Hands says he was stunned when he got a call asking if Adele's chopper could use his helipad in the heart of the Forest of Dean, Glos.
But he was even more shocked when the caller told him the £75 fee was too much and they would look elsewhere.
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,' said Peter, who runs the historic Speech House Hotel near Cinderford.
'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.
'They also asked about arranging a taxi to take her to Mitcheldean for 10am. It was a mystery as to what she was doing in the Forest.'
Now Mr Hands is wondering whether the star found another landing spot - and why she was visiting the Forest.
None of the pubs or tourist attractions in the area around Cinderford and nearby Mitcheldean reported any sightings of the star over the weekend.
But it is certainly true that Adele has a helicopter - she has had her own helipad built at her Sussex home.
