Lily Allen is taking some time off from Twitter, after she was attacked by online trolls for speaking about suffering post-traumatic stress disorder after the stillbirth of her son in 2010.

The singer told her followers on Saturday: “My timeline is full of the most disgusting, sexist, misogynistic, racist sh*t. Really, new levels. I'm no masochist so I'll be back x”. The account has since been taken over by her friend Dennis.

It began when Allen revealed on Twitter that she suffers from mental health issues, including ‘bi-polar, post natal depression, and PTSD’. A tweeter then asked the singer when her PTSD began.

Allen replied: “when I lay in a hospital bed with my deceased son stuck between my legs halfway out my body for 10 hours.” One Twitter user then replied: “are you saying that a British hospital left you, with a dead baby 'stuck between your legs' for 10 hours? Liar!”
