Lily Allen is facing a bitter row with a man she accuses of sexual abuse.

The 36-year-old is preparing to release a new album in which every song will be named after a man in the music industry she says has previously taken advantage of her.

But The Mail on Sunday has learnt that at least one of the men – a senior figure in the music industry himself – is planning to openly challenge the singer’s claims.

One friend of the individual confirmed that he would not be attempting to prevent Allen from releasing the song about him.

The Mail on Sunday has learnt that at least one of the men – a senior figure in the music industry himself – is planning to openly challenge the singer’s claims. One friend of the individual confirmed that he would not be attempting to prevent Allen (above in 2014) from releasing the song about him

But the friend said he would be making evidence available which, he claimed, would cast doubt over claims he was in an abusive relationship with the singer. 

‘If Lily wants to make these allegations in her songs, she must be prepared for very serious claims to be challenged,’ said the friend.

‘There will be no legal move made to prevent the release of this particular track. But the person being accused of committing these acts is convinced they have the evidence to disprove the allegation. They are prepared to fight fire with fire.’

Ms Allen spoke in 2018 about being sexually assaulted and claimed that she woke up in bed with a record industry executive during a work trip.

She said: ‘I woke up at 5am because I could feel someone next to me pressing their naked body against my back. I was naked, too.

‘I moved away as quickly as possible and jumped out of the bed, full of alarm… I found my clothes quickly… and ran out of his room and into my own.’

Lily Allen recently revealed she is two years sober, has made her West End debut in the play 2:22 A Ghost Story, and is happily married again, to US actor David Harbour, 46. (Above together in June)

The mother-of-two has enjoyed a remarkable turnaround in her life over the past few years following the collapse of her first marriage, and claims she was struggling with a hedonistic lifestyle that threatened her health and her career.

She recently revealed she is two years sober, has made her West End debut in the play 2:22 A Ghost Story, and is happily married again, to US actor David Harbour, 46.

Allen initially revealed she was self-funding her hotly awaited new music album, but she has now been signed to the BMG label, which will put out the release later this year.

She has previously alleged that sexual abuse is ‘rife’ in the music industry and too many people are still silent on the issue, despite the flourishing #MeToo movement.
