‘I guess it was a “lesbian prostitute sex romp” in a way’: Singer Lily Allen reveals details of her experiences with female escorts on tour amid her marriage breakdown to Sam Cooper
Lily shares two daughters (Marnie Rose, 5, and Ethel, 6) with now ex-husband Sam, who she divorced in 2016.
She has admitted to meeting the escorts in 2014 around the time she released her album Sheezus and was suffering from post-natal depression and marital problems.
While Lily is due to reveal the full extent of her escort experiences in her tell-all memoir, My Thoughts Exactly, she appeared to disagree with the headlines that have reported on her past trysts.
‘It’s not like steamy, raunchy – although that’s what the tabloids have made it out to be, as a “lesbian prostitute sex romp” which I guess it was in a way, but…’ she trailed off as she tried to explain.
‘It was more about a period of time that I was feeling incredibly lonely and sort of at my wits end. I was looking for anything. Looking for an outlet. It’s not really a salacious sex story, it’s more about hotel rooms and being on my own and being very far away from my kids and my husband,’ Lily explained.

She added: ‘I’m a big advocate for having no shame. In retrospect, I know what was going on. I think I had postnatal depression and my marriage was deteriorating and I found outlets to deal with all of that.’
The Fear singer told her Instagram fans on Saturday that while she was ‘not proud’ of her past endeavors, she was also ‘not ashamed’ of them.
‘I slept with female escorts when I was on tour, cause I was lost and lonely and looking for something… I don’t do it anymore,’ she wrote.
