Lily Allen dumps management team

Lily Allen has split from her management team.

The 'Hard Out Here' hitmaker has reportedly sparked fears she is "spiralling out of control" after parting ways with music managers Scott Rodger and Henry Village after less than a year of working together.

A source close to the 30-year-old singer, whose marriage to Sam Cooper is also rumoured to be on the rocks, told the UK's The Sun newspaper: "Lily's life is spiralling out of control. Everyone is incredibly worried but she just won't listen.

"He [Scott] is one of the most in-demand managers in the world. He tried hard with Lily but her attitude was all wrong and her new music isn't up to scratch.

"After her last album was a massive flop she was banking on Scott turning things around. He made her a lot of money but she's spending like crazy and everyone wants her to slow down.

"Her fashion budget alone is about £30,000 a month and that's not sustainable now that there's no music release or new tour on the cards for some time."

A spokesperson for the 'Not Fair' hitmaker, who has daughters Ethel, three, and Marnie, two, with Sam, confirmed the split, saying: "It's true that Lily has parted company with her managers Scott Rodger and Henry Village and the decision to split was both mutual and amicable. There is no comment regarding her private life."

A source previously claimed Lily, who allegedly collapsed at Glastonbury and was refused entry to the VIP area at Wireless festival earlier this year, has been feeling "lost" recently.

The insider added: "It seems her default mode is to go wild because it's what she's always done."
