Lily Allen has been dumped by Chemical Brother Ed Simmons only weeks after losing their unborn baby, according to a report.
The â€œSmileâ€ singer, who suffered a New Year miscarriage, was last night said to be heartbroken.
The five-month relationship of the music celebrity couple hit the rocks as they battled their grief by taking a Â£3,000-a-night holiday in the Maldives. They tried to patch things up on their return to the UK but following a series of bitter rows the 37-year-old Ed told her, â€œItâ€™s over.â€
A friend of Lily Allen has confirmed the split, saying, â€œThey tried to make things work but couldnâ€™t. The miscarriage was a horrible experience for both of them – and in recent weeks the mood between them had been really strained.â€
The friend also revealed, â€œLily is really upset things havenâ€™t worked out for her and Ed. She had talked about settling down for good and having a family. But there is a big age difference and the heartbreak they had to cope with was too much too early in their relationship.â€
Last night Lily Allenâ€™s spokesman refused to comment on the split.
