Lily Allen has split from her manager.

The 29-year-old singer and her long-time aide Todd Interland, who has looked after her career since her debut in 2006, have decided to go their separate ways.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Lily guides her career herself a lot but will need someone new to work with her. Todd had been with her for a long time so it was a blow to lose him.''

The separation comes after Lily hit out at her label for making her release ''rubbish'' light-hearted pop songs like 'Air Balloon' from her comeback album 'Sheezus' over less commercially-viable tracks like 'Hard Out Here'.

Lily is now on a mission to find a new manager who will help take her career in the right direction.

The source explained: ''She's looking around at the moment for the right person to help her make the correct decisions with her music.''

The brunette beauty - who took a break from the music industry in 2009 to raise her daughters Ethel, two, and Marnie, 16 months, with her husband Sam Cooper - recently admitted she felt frustrated by her lack of control over her music career.

She said previously: ''I'd like to [release the songs I want], but unfortunately I signed a record deal! I took a mortgage out on myself, that's how it works.''
