Lily Allen says she was so embarrassed about having liposuction she lied to an ex claiming the scars left by the cosmetic procedure were from a hip replacement surgery.
Allen, 35, shared the information during an informal Q&A on her Instagram stories. No topic was out of bounds and one of her followers asked: “Ever had any cosmetic procedures?”
She replied: “Yeah I had lipo once on my bum many years ago.”
“I was with this guy and he was like ‘what are those scars?’ and I was so embarrassed that I said, ‘it’s from a hip replacement’.”
The recently married singer also revealed how her and husband David Harbour came into each other's lives: “We met in a dressing room area of a chat show.”
When asked about married life, she added: “You know, it’s kind of fab. I can’t complain. My husband is a delight and I’m feeling pretty good these days.”
The newlyweds tied the knot in September last year in a low-key ceremony in Las Vegas. Allen wore a Sixties-inspired Dior dress paired with a veil.
The couple were married by an Elvis impersonator and were joined by Allen’s daughters Ethel and Marnie. The pair then kept their reception intimate, eating takeaway burgers at In-N-Out.
The Smile singer gave up alcohol just over a year and a half ago.
Recently, the singer revealed that she has also given up smoking. Replying to a question on Instagram stories, asking how she’s finding life since she ditched the cigarettes she said:
“Yeah. It's been like four and a half months. Not bad.”
As for the upsides about being teetotal, she said: 'Probably just knowing that I didn't sit in someone's living room till 7am talking absolute s**t, chewing their ear off and being generally embarrassing and offensive.'
One follower asked the singer what's next for her, to which she replied: "Finish an album. Release album. Write some other stuff. Make s**t."
