The sky may be falling on Donald Trump's use of Adele's million-selling songs to whip up his supporters on the campaign trail.

The English-born singing sensation made it clear on Monday that she's not pleased with the Republican presidential front-runner blasting out her hits "Skyfall" and "Rolling in the Deep" at his rallies.

But so far, she's stopped short at calling for legal action.

"Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning," a spokesperson for Adele told CNN in a statement.

Asked if Adele was asking the billionaire developer to quit playing her music, Adele spokesman Benny Tarantini said, "We have no further comment."

Trump is a fan of Adele, and last year reportedly cut in line to attend her sold-out show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, angering some concert-goers.

But fans of Adele have taken to Twitter to beg her to stop Trump from playing her songs.

"Noooooo!! Not Adele!! Must Trump ruin that too?!" one fan raged, referring to "Skyfall," which was the theme song to the 2012 James Bond movie of the same name.

The music controversy is not the first for Trump.

Last year, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith demanded Trump stop using the band's beloved hit, "Dream On" and had his lawyer fire off a cease-and-desist letter insisting it gave "the false impression" he is connected with or endorses Trump's presidential bid. Trump complied.

Trump has not yet answered the Adele controversy.
