LONDON: She’s sold millions of records, so you’d think she wouldn’t be short of a quid, but Lily Allen has been slammed for implying she’s “homeless” after tenants refused to move out of her luxe London apartment.
n a series of now-deleted tweets, the 32-year-old singer complained that she was unable to move back into her home because those renting the property had nowhere else to live.
“Meant to be moving back into my flat this week, but my tenants just dropped that they can’t find anywhere to go up to their standards,” she tweeted.
“Then they said they’re diplomats and have diplomatic immunity and there’s nothing I can do about it. So, who fancies a family of 3 for Xmas?”
And while Lily’s plea to find a home for her family for the may have been said in jest, she was taken to task on the social media platform, with fans mocking her and branding her a “champagne socialist” for her first world problem. Yikes.
“Bit of a crazy request, but has anyone got Bob Geldof’s number? I think we need to organise a concert to buy @lilyallen a 4 million pound property for Christmas. She’s homeless and in need. Who’s with me?” One fan tweeted, while another shared a photo of the Not Fair singer during her trip to the Calais Jungle and sharing the hashtag “Pray For Lily”.
It’s been a seemingly rough 12 months for the singer, with Lily revealing last year she had to sell her Cotwolds mansion to pay a hefty tax bill.
“I’ve had a tough couple of years, I’m having to sell my home to pay my tax bill,” she tweeted at the time, although the tweets have since been deleted from her account.
