Lily Allen Opens Up About Miscarriage & Eating Disorder


The British popster reveals her pain in the new UK documentary, 'Lily Allen: From Riches to Rags.'

Lily Allen has kept a relatively low profile since suffering a devastating miscarriage (the singer's second) last November. However, with her wedding to beau Sam Cooper and a new business venture looming, the pop star has stepped back out into the spotlight. Lily Allen & Sam Cooper Get Engaged

The 25-year-old singer was spotted at Paris Fashion Week, watching the Chanel show from the front row. Turns out she wasn't just there to see the hottest new spring looks—she also had an important meeting about her wedding dress with designer Karl Lagerfeld.

Always something of a fashionista, it should shock no one that Lily is set to open her own boutique, Lucy in Disguise. Aware that not everyone can afford to have their clothes custom-made by Lagerfeld, Lily (along with her half-sister/business partner Sarah Owen) will offer expensive couture and vintage clothing as affordable rentals.

During the documentary about this new venture, Lily Allen: From Riches to Rags, Lily opens up about the heartbreak of losing her baby at six months. She explains, "'It was a really long battle - and I think that kind of thing changes a person." Although her relationship with former boyfriend Ed Simmons ended after her first miscarriage in 2008, it seems that her current relationship with Sam—who proposed a month after Lily lost their baby—has grown stronger during this sad time.

Lily also opens up about her battle with bulimia, saying, "It's not something I'm proud of." Illustrating the premium society puts on being thin, Lily reveals:

I tell you what, a lot of people came up to me telling me how great I looked and I'd be on the cover of every magazine...I thought I looked good and it was great to be able to try on clothes and feel a million dollars. But I wasn't happy, I really wasn't. I would love to be the skinniest minniest person in the world but I can't do that without being unhappy - I like food...I'm a pop star, not a model. Don't make me feel s*** for not being really skinny and having an eating disorder.
