Lily Allen reveals break-up with rapper boyfriend Meridian Dan (Reports)


Lily Allen has revealed she has split up with rapper Meridian Dan after a three-year relationship.

The 33-year-old singer spoke about the break-up with author and journalist Elizabeth Day for the How To Fail podcast, saying it is the first time she has been single since she was a teenager.

Allen told Day the pair split up in December.

“I’m single, for the first time since I was about 15,” she said. “We’ve been broken up for about three weeks.

“It’s just been bad news after bad news after bad news and I think the fact that I haven’t called him and been like, ‘Hey, wanna come around for a cuddle?’ means that it’s big for me, because ordinarily, when things get difficult, I do need to have somebody around to share those problems.”

Happy New Year! And what better way to usher in 2019 than with a whole new season How To Fail With Elizabeth Day? (Ok fine, there might be better ways but shhhh.) I am so, so thrilled that my first guest is the one and only Lily Allen, singer, songwriter, millennial chronicler and bestselling memoirist. I can’t quite believed this interview happened, but it did and Lily was so unflinchingly honest about everything from failing at fame to failing at money, self-belief and families. Along the way, we discuss body image, divorce and dealing with tragedy. And she reveals she might like to go into politics: ‘Imagine if Kanye was President and I was Prime Minister! It would be lit.’ Oh Lily, I am so grateful you chose to open up to me and yes you would definitely get my vote (Kanye, not so much).

Meridian Dan is a London-born grime artist best known for his 2016 hit German Whip.

On 2 January, he wrote a New Year’s message on Instagram which said that 2018 “wasn’t my best one”.

He added: “New friends, business partners and collaborators; Nice of you to join the team – Organic Always. Old and long standing ones… Still got love for ya and thanks for riding with me even though I’m a difficult dude to work out sometimes. To everyone else. I wish you all the best in 2019.”
