Lily Allen cheated on her husband
In a recent interview to Volture, singer Lily Allen admitted she cheated on her husband Sam Cooper before their split in 2015.
The Smile singer, in fact, opened up about her love story with the builder and revealed that their marriage broke down due to her infidelity.
Lily was going through an “identity crisis” after the couple sadly lost their baby boy due to stillbirth in 2010, leading to the singer being hospitalised for septicaemia. She decided to wed Sam in a low-key ceremony in 2011, before having daughters Ethel, six, and Marnie, five, in quick succession.
And then, here’s what happened: “I was 14 stone and I had to lose all that weight,” she said, adding “I wasn’t eating, I wasn’t sleeping. I’d always been in control of my image, but I’d been a mum in slippers and a dressing gown for two years.”
“I hired a team to dress me up with slick hair, nails, make-up; all harsh and pop star-y. I felt like I was in Alice in Wonderland . ‘Who am I? What is all this? What are these songs? Why am I nowhere near my children?’ Heh. ‘Where’s the vodka?'” she continued.
“I lost my sense of self. I lost my identity. I was being a bad mum. I was being bad at my job. I’d wake up on a tour bus in the middle of Wisconsin and be so hung-over,” Lily recalled.
“I cheated on my husband. All I wanted to do was be with my kids. I wasn’t even making any money. I lost my marriage, I lost my house, I lost my mind,” she concluded.
