British pop star Lily Allen was late for the Brit Awards in London on Wednesday (20Feb13) after suffering a nightmare journey.
The Smile singer, also known by her married name of Lily Rose Cooper, became a mother for the second time last month (Jan13), but left her children at home to attend the prizegiving at the U.K. capital's O2 Arena.
However, her driver was forced to turn around when the star discovered she had left an essential item behind.
In a post on her Twitter.com page, Allen wrote, "Was en route but despite numerous reminders forgot nipple pads, had to turn around. Brits 2013 carry on."
The star then suffered another setback on her journey over a mix-up regarding the venue of the ceremony, which used to be held at London's Earls Court Exhibition Centre.
She added, "Oh according to my driver the Brits 2013 are no longer at Earls Court, this should only delay me by another hour or so. Whoops."
