Nine-time Grammy winning singer Adele has turned down a lucrative offer to write her autobiography, believing that she is too young.

According to The Mirror, the Oscar winner turned down a seven-figure sum for her story.

A source told the newspaper: "... even though she received a lucrative offer, her primary concern was that she doesn’t want to write a book about just 24 years.

"She feels she’d rather wait until she has more life experience to write about."

The singer gave birth to her first child with fiance Simon Konecki last September.
