Allen is currently in the works of putting out her memoir, My Thoughts Exactly. The singer received an email from an anonymous story revealing that details from the memoir had been leaked, so she put out an Instagram post explaining the situation.

She attached a screenshot of the email, which read, “Just wanted to make sure you [were] aware that the Mail on Sunday are planning to run a story taken from the book about you hiring female escorts. Most likely in Robbie Griffiths Diary column. Apparently, someone who’s read the book has given him the story. We’ve asked Blink for the full list of who’s been serviced because everyone  has signed an NDA so it’s definitely a breach of contract. Not many that I’m aware of on the list who would stoop so low so I’m going through the rest to try and work out who’s responsible.”  

The email continued but Allen did not post the rest of it.

She captioned the post, “Sooo, in my book ‘My Thoughts Exactly’ (out on 20th Sept) I detail some stuff from my dark days, around the Sheezus era. I slept with female escorts when I was on tour, cause I was lost and lonely and looking for something. I’m not proud, but I’m not ashamed. I don’t do it anymore. The Mail are gonna run with the story tomorrow cause someone leaked it, and they’re bound to make [it] sound worse than it was. Just wanted to give you, Er, the ‘heads up!'”

The events happened in 2014 around when the 33-year-old was touring for her album Sheezus. She was suffering from post-natal depression after the birth of her second child Marnie, and experiencing rocky times in her marriage with businessman Sam Cooper after five years together.
