Lily Allen took speed to lose weight and almost took heroin on Miley Cyrus tour

Lily Allen has recalled how in her 20s she got addicted to taking 'speed' in a bid to lose weight while on tour with Miley Cyrus.

In a desperate attempt to shed the pounds after having two babies and being 14 stone, Lily felt threatened to be next to a "younger and prettier" Miley while supporting her on her tour.

Speaking on The Recovery podcast, Lily dived into the story of how she cheated on her ex-husband Sam Cooper, became addicted to alcohol and took 'speed' to lose weight.

The star even recalled how she thought about taking heroin while on the tour too but didn't.

Lily said: "I got married when I was 24 and I had a baby and a baby who died ten years ago this month and went on to have two babies.

"Six months after my youngest was born we ran out of money and had to go out on the road again and I was 14 stone and did not feel like a pop star at all.

"I started taking this drug called adderall which is like speed to lose the weight and then I got addicted to this drug cause it made me feel invincible and I could work long hours.

"Then I ended up on tour in America supporting Miley Cyrus and it was a highly sexualised tour and I’d spent the last three years pushing babies out."

Lily continued: "I was supporting this girl who was much younger and more attractive than I felt and I just started acting out in all manner of ways."

The singer has previously spoken publicly about how she cheated on her former husband Sam while out in the tour bus.

She has since divorced Sam and married actor David Harbour in Las Vegas last year.

Lily said: "I started cheating on my husband and I had always drunk alcohol to take the edge off the drugs."

She added: "Then I realised I was going into the mini bar and drinking the mini bottles of vodka and without the drugs.

"I was in LA and thinking, 'None of this acting out is working anymore. Maybe I should try heroin'.

"But because I had seen what happens to people who have taken heroin I knew it was time to confront whatever it was and my demons."
