    Lily Allen only looks after her children for two weeks a month

    The 33-year-old singer split from her husband Sam Cooper, with whom she has daughters Ethel, six, and Marnie, five, two years ago and she has admitted they came up with a plan so that they both get to spend equal time with the girls


    Speaking on 'Lorraine' on Tuesday (12.06.18), she said: "I do a week on and week off. In terms of my work, it's perfect.

    "I can really recommend divorce to everyone! When I'm working in the studio Sam has the kids and when I have the kids, I'm mum. It has worked out."

    The 'Smile' hitmaker is able to separate her career with motherhood now so that she can dedicate the time she's with her girls to them rather than blending the two.

    She said: "On my last album, when my kids were really small... I was spending long periods away, late nights, tour buses and a rock and roll lifestyle.

    "It was tough. When you are waking up in the middle of nowhere and you've missed five FaceTimes from your little ones."

    The brunette beauty shot into the limelight when she was 19 years old and she believes being scrutinised from a young age was detrimental to her mental health.

    She explained: "I was 19 or 20 when Smile came out. I must have been 25-26 [years old] when I had Ethel, my oldest. I did all of those things under the microscope, under the spotlight. There were fun elements to it, but it was pretty intense at times."

    Lily had a particularly bad relationship with her body in her 20s and she has revealed she would sleep for "days" so that she didn't have to eat anything.

    She added: "I didn't eat. I used to sleep for days, so that I didn't eat. My relationship with my body was not great in my 20s. I think I presented myself in quite a defiant way and I didn't want to care. But it felt like people came down on me three times as hard because of that. It was juggling the 'I don't careness' with 'I do care'."

    However, she has learnt to ignore the negative comments the older she's got.

    She said: "It's about listening and trying to separate the nonsense from the reality."
