Lily Allen reveals she had liposuction on her bottom but told an ex the scars were from hip replacement surgery
Lily Allen has made a surprising plastic surgery confession on Instagram.
In a candid Instagram Stories Q&A on Tuesday evening, the British singer revealed she once had liposuction on her bottom and was so embarrassed about it, she passed it off as hip replacement surgery.
“I had lipo once on my bum many years ago,” the 35-year-old told her fans when asked if she’s ever had any cosmetic procedures.
“I was with this guy and he was like, ‘What are these scars?’ and I was so embarrassed I said, ‘It’s from a hip replacement.'”
Allen’s plastic surgery admission comes years after she backed out of having liposuction the first time. In a 2013 interview with The Guardian’s Observer Magazine, the mum-of-two said she came close to getting rid of her “mummy tummy”.
“Nobody’s immune to the pressure to look thin,” she said at the time.
Allen booked in for the procedure but four days ahead of her surgery, she found out she was pregnant with her second child, Marnie, now eight. She has another daughter, nine-year-old Ethel. The singer shares the girls with her ex-husband, Sam Cooper.
In the impromptu confessional, Allen also opened up about her marriage to Stranger Things actor David Harbour.
The couple married last September, almost one year after they started dating.
“We met in a dressing room area of a chat show,” Allen said on Instagram, adding that married life is “kind of fab. I can’t complain. My husband is a delight and I’m feeling pretty good these days.”
