Karl Lagerfeld has apologised for calling Adele fat by giving her a handbag.
The Chanel creative director has reportedly gifted the 'Someone Like You' singer with a collection of the fashion house's bags to say sorry for branding her a ''little too fat'' in a French magazine earlier this year.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ''He told his team to send Adele the best the fashion house have to offer after hearing she collected bags.
''He said 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.
''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.''
Meanwhile, Adele has confirmed that despite her plans to take a few years off between albums, she will release a single at the end of 2012.
She told French radio station NJR: ''There was a good two years between my first and second albums so it will be the same this time. If I didn't write my own songs I'd have an album out next week.
''There will be a new song out at the end of the year. With the album it depends how quickly the songs are written.''
