The singer took to twitter to set the record straight after it was claimed she’d been forced to sell her Cotswolds home to pay a large tax bill.
Singer Lily Allen has denied tabloid claims that she’s been forced to sell her £4.2million Cotswolds mansion after being hit by a huge tax bill. Taking to Twitter, Allen said that she was actually selling the mansion because she was moving to London full time, rather than for financial reasons.
Lily Allen says the sale of her mansion is because she’s moving to London.
When a user on twitter asked why she was selling the mansion Allen replied, “because I'm moving to London full time.” She then told another user it was for sale, “because I don't live there anymore.’
“Put it this way, as far as I'm aware I have no outstanding tax bill, and I still own the house. So It doesnt add up,” she added. “I did pay a large tax bill and I am selling my house.” Allen’s tweets came after The Daily Mail reported the mansion was for sale to pay off her large tax bill.
The Mail reported that Lily had tweeted then deleted: “I’ve had a tough couple of years, I’m having to sell my home to pay my tax bill.” She also reportedly added that “private equity managers, tax experts and hedge funders been looking at it.”
Meanwhile Lily is said to be heading back to the studio, to record the follow up to 2014’s Sheezus. Last month producer Mark Ronson confirmed the pair had been in the studio together. "We’ve been writing together again on the new record,” he said.
“I feel like they are some of the best songs she’s written. Her voice sounds incredible. The stuff I’m working on is some of her most honest and heartbreaking music ever," he added. "She writes so honestly you can feel it.”
