The 26-year-old singing sensation and her partner Simon Konecki brought the suit against photo agency Corbis Images U.K. Limited after images of their baby boy, who was born in October 2012, were made available for publication in British tabloids.
Lawyers for the "Rolling in the Deep" singer told the High Court in London today that the hitmaker was adamant that her son never become "public property."
"It is a matter of profound sadness that many of his milestone moments, such as his first family outing and his first trip to playgroup, were photographed and published worldwide expressly against his family's wishes," Adele's solicitor, Jenny Afia, said (per BBC News). "These images were taken during private, recreational time unconnected with professional or public engagements. They represent a clear infringement of our client's right to privacy."
