Adele has banned Donald Trump from using her music in his US Presidential campaign.

The Republican hopeful has used Adele's Rolling in the Deep and Skyfall at his rallies but a representative for the singer insisted that she had not given her permission.

Adele's rep told The Independent newspaper: "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning."

The Hello hitmaker is not the only musician to denounce the businessman, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler sent a cease and desist letter after Trump used the song Dream On at a rally.

The letter said the song "gives a false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump's presidential bid".

And REM's Michael Stipe launched a furious tirade after Trump used one of the band's songs, writing on Twitter: "Go f**k yourselves, the lot of you - you sad, attention-grabbing, power-hungry little men. Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign."
