Lily Allen has angrily denied reports that her clothes shop Lucy In Disguise is set to close down.

The singer recently relocated the store from a premises in London's Covent Garden to a pop-up shop in nearby Carnaby Street.

Today's (July 17) Mail On Sunday claimed that the move is a "last ditch attempt" to save the business.

The newspaper also claimed that a lease for another permanent store had been signed.

Writing on her Twitter page, Twitter.com/MrsLRCooper, Allen described reports about Lucy In Disguise's closure as "deliberately misleading".

"Lucy in Disguise has NOT closed, it has moved to a temporary pop up on Lowndes st, before we move to our permanent premises," she wrote.

The singer later tweeted: "If any other publication wants to write deliberately misleading articles about Lucy in Disguise, feel free, I WILL sue you."

Allen opened the shop with half-sister Sarah Owen last year. It allows customers to rent out designer vintage clothing.

The store featured in a Channel 4 documentary about the singer, titled Lily Allen: From Riches To Rags, in March.

Allen, who recently married boyfriend Sam Cooper, has been on a break from music for the past couple of years.

She recently confirmed she is writing songs to accompany a new musical version of Bridget Jones' Diary, which will be heard "sometime next year".
