Lily Allen to release ‘shocking’ memoir in 2018

British pop star Lily Allen is putting pen to paper for her “shocking and brutal” memoir.
The Smile hitmaker has inked a deal with Blink Publishing bosses to release the as-yet-untitled book next autumn (18).
In her autobiography, Allen, the daughter of actor Keith Allen and filmmaker Alison Owen, will detail everything from her tough upbringing and her rise to fame, to her struggle with eating disorders, and drug and alcohol dependency, as well as her miscarriage in 2008, while she was dating the Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons.
Lily will also open up about finding love again with Sam Cooper, only to have a stillborn son in 2010. They managed to overcome the tragedy and married in 2011, and are now parents to daughters Ethel, five, and Marnie, four.
“Some of it I think might be uncomfortable and shocking and brutal,” she shares in a statement. “There will be good stuff in there too; happy times. I will try and make it funny. I know it’s about me but I hope that a lot of it will ring true with anyone who reads it. It won’t be written with shame. It will be true.”
