Adele wants to strip the mansion of all the references to Rocky, above, and Rambo — two of Stallone’s most famous characters[/caption]
The Skyfall singer has applied for a permit to remodel the interior of the sprawling eight-bedroom, 12-bathroom mansion.
According to the estate agent selling the property there were Stallone-themed statues and artworks all over the place.
The website said the living room has a “lot of Rambo memorabilia”, including “unique, big graffiti art” which Adele is said to be in the process of removing.

There is even a “memorabilia room and office” containing a “tall statue” of persecuted Vietnam vet John Rambo, who first hit movie screens in 1982’s First Blood.
Rocky Balbao — Stallone’s legendary boxing character — inevitably features in the property located in the exclusive Beverly Park area.
A statue of Rocky raising his fist — which he famously did on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum in the first film in 1976 — graces the side of his “infinity pool”.
Avid polo fan Stallone also has a player on a horse on the other side of the pool.

Stallone, 76, once stated in an interview that “playing polo is like trying to play golf during an earthquake”.
He said: “It’s weird, when you are on the horse you think you look like Rambo and you should charge around, but that’s not what the game is about.
“It’s about being patient. I have to remember that a lot of the time.”
