Singer admits she's 'just a lightweight' but tells fans there's 'nothing to see here'
Lily Allen has insisted she is “absolutely fine” after a national newspaper ran a story claiming she “dramatically collapsed after a public drinking and smoking binge” at London’s Notting Hill Carnival over the weekend.
Alongside a screen shot of an email apparently warning her that the story would be running, the singer wrote on Twitter: “Truth is I’m just a lightweight, I had 2 cans of strongbow on an empty stomach. I’m here now and I’m absolutely fine.”
Shortly beforehand, Allen had shared a picture of herself standing up and smiling with the caption: “Nothing to see here.”
The Sun‘s article featured pictures of the singer seemingly drinking cider and whisky as well as rolling a cigarette which was described as “suspicious-looking”. It also included pictures of the singer apparently being carried over a man’s shoulders.
Earlier last week Allen had reassured fans she was safe and well after returning from a holiday in Italy, which has been hit by a major earthquake.
The singer tweeted at the time: “Thank you everyone for all your concerned tweets. I had to leave my family holiday in Umbria early to come home for a funeral. Such sad scenes, but feeling blessed that my lot are all OK.”
