Adele wasn't having it with those rumors spread by a producer that her voice wasn't 100% hers. So she called him out on stage -- and producer Tony Visconti ultimately apologized.

"I’m sorry that what I said in regards to what’s being played on radio was misconstrued, yet I cannot apologize for something taken the wrong way. If Adele has taken my comments as offensive that was certainly not my intent,” Visconti told Billboard on Monday. "Adele has a great voice and it brings pleasure to millions."

The record producer had implied in an interview with the Daily Star that Adele's famous powerhouse voice was the result of digital enhancement.

“You turn the radio on and it’s fluff, you are listening to 90 percent computerized voices," Visconti, 72, said in the interview published on June 8. "We know Adele has a great voice but it’s even questionable if that is actually her voice or how much has been manipulated. We don’t know."

Adele, who has never been one for shrinking back from criticism or a rude fan, slammed the music industry vet on during a June 9 concert stop in Paris, announcing in an NSFW-laden burn, “Some (expletive) tried to say that my voice was not me on record. Dude, suck my (expletive)."
