Lily Allen Was Baby Bait For Dad's Drug Business

Pop star LILY ALLEN was introduced to a life of crime at just eight years old when her actor father KEITH ALLEN used her cute looks to help him sell amyl nitrate.
The Smile singer reveals her dad took her to the Glastonbury Festival in England, where he sold drugs to music fans.
She tells Spin magazine, "I was a cute baby, which brought in a few customers, I suppose."
And daddy dearest used his daughter again to help him make money in London when she was growing up - the actor would persuade Allen and her brother Alfie to steal his ex-wife's pots and pans, so he could sell them.
The singer recalls, "We'd sell them at Portobello Market.
"I discussed this with my mum a few months ago, and she thought he was stealing them for his flat, when actually he was stealing them for food money."
