People.com Celebrity Lily Allen, Boyfriend Split Up The pop singer and Chemical Brothers musician Ed Simons call it quits By Simon Perry Published on February 2, 2008 02:30 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Ramey Lily Allen has split from her boyfriend, Chemical Brothers musician Ed Simons, PEOPLE has confirmed. Reports first surfaced in the British papers early Saturday – with some saying that Allen had been “dumped.” But a friend of the singer tells PEOPLE the couple actually spent some time together Saturday, suggesting that the parting might not be as acrimonious as first thought. The split comes after news that Allen miscarried the baby the couple had been expecting. “She is feeling fine,” Allen’s friend says. “She is throwing herself into her work on her new album and TV show.” Only two days ago, she excitedly joined her family to watch her thespian brother Alfie take the stage in the lead role of Equus in Chichester, southern England. Her rep had no comment when contacted Saturday.
