She is famously outspoken.
But, while Lily Allen usually reserves her voice to discuss politics, she’s made a shock confession about her own private life, this week.
The ex-pop star, 33, has detailed a secret battle with booze which – at its worst – saw her down a bottle of vodka each day.
At one point, during her Sheezus tour in 2014, she even struggled to decipher between hard liquor and still water.
She also revealed how she’d swig spirits in the early morning before photoshoots, detailing that her dependency was "really bad".
Her revelation comes in a frank interview with the new issue of men’s magazine, GQ .
In it, she said: “I was drinking a bottle of Grey Goose (vodka) a day. Part of it was I was really heavy after I gave birth to Marnie, my youngest, and I lost a lot of weight.
“I was down to 8st from 14. I was trying to meet the beauty standards and wasn’t eating and I felt very insecure about the way I looked."
She also blamed her boozing on the trauma of splitting from her husband, Sam Cooper.
“I lost my house and my kids started to feel distant and I broke up with my husband.”
To combat this, she completed six months of sobriety. She also attended 90 dependency meetings in as many days.
Today, she insists she’s back in control of her alcohol consumption – by avoiding drink and drugs unless she’s feeling "100%".
Fittingly, her comments coincide with the release of her new album, No Shame.
But, earlier this month, she was accused of ‘glamorising’ drug use after tweeting about an incident involving ketamine.
"Someone gave me a line of what I assumed to be cocaine at the Glamour awards once, but it turned out to be Ketamine," she posted on Twitter. "I was thrown out (passed over some railings) of the Glamour awards for being in a k hole."
The Mirror have contacted a representative for Lily Allen, but are yet to receive a response.
The new issue of GQ is out now.
