Lily Allen's manager dismisses 'partying' concerns


Lily Allen’s manager has denied claims she’s been told to slow down her partying. The 29-year-old singer has been the subject of unflattering reports about her lifestyle in recent months, just last week posting a screenshot on Instagram of a text exchange in which she tries to piece together the night before. But her manager has now spoken out to dismiss the rumours.

'I thought it did really well and then management and the label chose to go with Air Balloon '

"It's not true,” he told UK newspaper The Mirror of claims she’s worried pals with her recent behaviour.

Lily became known for her love of partying shortly after catapulting to the top of music charts in 2006 with her debut single, Smile.

She later shunned the limelight and wild lifestyle when she met her now-husband Sam Cooper and the couple welcomed their two daughters, Marnie and Ethel.

The pop star has been the subject of swirling media reports since returning to the music scene earlier this year with her third studio album, Sheezus.

Her new album received mixed responses, which were said to have upset the star.

She later admitted she didn’t trust her instincts when working on the record.

“I put my trust in other people, which I don’t usually do. I usually go with my own gut feeling but maybe I wasn’t feeling as confident as I have in the past because of all the hormones,” she told The Mirror back in July.

"The first thing I came back with was Hard Out Here and that was important to me, a real statement of intent, even though you couldn’t put it on the radio over here because it had too much swearing.

“I thought it did really well and then management and the label chose to go with Air Balloon and I just think starting with something really aggressive and in your face and then going in a different direction... people need to know what they are getting,” she said.
