Lily Allen has been dumped by Chemical Brother Ed Simmons only weeks after losing their unborn baby, according to a report.
The “Smile” 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 £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, “It’s over.”
A friend of Lily Allen has confirmed the split, saying, “They tried to make things work but couldn’t. The miscarriage was a horrible experience for both of them – and in recent weeks the mood between them had been really strained.”
The friend also revealed, “Lily is really upset things haven’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.”
Last night Lily Allen’s spokesman refused to comment on the split.
