Record label covered up an assault on Lily Allen

2 min read

Lily Allen (34) claims to have been assaulted by an employee of record company Warner Music two years ago. When the singer told a director of the label this last year, no action was taken, she says.

The incident occurred during a work trip to the Caribbean in 2016, when she and the man returned to the hotel after a party. “I couldn’t find the keys to my room. So he said, sleep differently in my bed while I try to find the keys for you. Then I fell asleep in his bed,” says Lily in the BBC podcast The Next Episode . “Then I woke up and he was beating my butt naked in bed.” He also tried to have sex with her.

The 34-year-old singer did not go to the police and kept her mouth shut because she did not want to make something big of it.

“I thought about his mother and what it should be like for her to hear that her son is a sexual predator. I thought others were more important and did not put myself first.”

Inspired by the #MeToo movement, the British decided to stop being silent and informed a director of Warner Music.

“I would be sorry if I heard that an even younger and more vulnerable person would end up in a similar situation that could have been prevented.”

However, according to Lily, it had no effect and the man is still working at the label.

Warner Music said in a reaction to the BBC that the story was shocked. “We take sexual abuse allegations very seriously and investigate the situation.”
