Lily Allen has therapy

Lily Allen has revealed she still has therapy to discuss the miscarriage she suffered in 2007, when she lost Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons' baby

Lily Allen is still undergoing therapy sessions to deal with her miscarriage.

The singer tragically lost the baby in 2007 and admits she is still learning to cope with the grief.

Lily - who was in a relationship with Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons at the time - said in an interview with Grazia magazine: "I've had really bad, unbelievably awful times, but if I hadn't had them I wouldn't get the happiness I've got now.

"I couldn't even compute the emotions going through my head, but I was having to put out a press release about my miscarriage. I had this public sympathy for about five days and then everyone was on my case again and I didn't know what was happening to me.

"I have therapy on and off but at that time it really helped me. Then I started to deal with it and move on."

The 24-year-old British star has described the miscarriage as the "worst time of her life" because she repressed a lot of her emotions.

She explained: "I didn't even start beginning to deal with it until the baby's due date. Then it hit me like a house collapsing.

"The week before the due date, all I wanted to do was talk about my baby but I also felt I shouldn't. I was working non-stop and I had all this inside my head. I still get sad. I still think. I don't mark what would have been my baby's birth but it's always there. It changed a lot."
