FRIENDS of popular singer Lily Allen are said to be becoming increasingly concerned over their friend’s health, after a spate of drunken and depressed episodes recently.

One friend spoke of her concern in an interview with Britain’s ‘Daily Star’ newspaper, claiming that Allen is in a bad place and needs help.

“We all think it’s time she considered rehab. She drinks too much, then feels depressed,” revealed the source.

Despite this concern, Allen sees no error in her behaviour – putting it down to having “a good time”.

The source added: “Her attitude is: ‘I like to let my hair down and have a good time, who doesn’t?”

Allen has frequently left depressed and suicidal messages on her ‘Facebook’ page, heightening and confusing friend’s worry.

Last month, Allen posted an entry page which read: “Lily is dying inside”, which replaced an earlier and perhaps more disturbing proclamation: “Lily has had enough; feels like killing herself.”

On the same page in an online conversation with her friend, Allen wrote: “Was he upset? I’m worried now, was I mean?”

Her friend replied: “It was priceless. Hope you got rid of the hangover in the end.”

With this, it seems her depressive behaviour was sparked by her outrageous hosting performance at the GQ Awards two days prior.

Allen co-hosted the GQ Men Of The Year Awards with Elton John and reportedly drank champagne throughout the ceremony.

John reportedly “finally lost it with the singer after she allegedly began slurring her words and ad-libbing the scripted dialogue”.

When the 23-year-old told the audience, “And now for the most important part of the night …”, John quipped, “What? Are you going to have another drink?”

In response, Allen told Elton to: “’F**k off… I am 40 years younger than you and have my whole life ahead of me.”

The 61-year-old veteran retorted: “I could still snort you under the table” before she told him: “F*** off. I don’t know what you are talking about.”

The next day on her Myspace page, Allen posted a blog denying a feud between her and John and dismissing claims that she was too drunk.

She wrote: “Elton and I are friends. I’m not defending my drunkenness because i don’t need to, I’m 23 it was an awards ceremony I drank the free champagne, how awful of me.”

“Trying to create a feud on the other hand, and trying to make me out as being some rude little girl with a drink problem is just unfair. Elton and I exchanged jokes and there were no hard feelings at all, in fact neither of us gave it a second thought.”

This drunken appearance comes after another at the ‘Glamour Women Of The Year Awards’ back in June, which saw the young star escorted out by security as she was too drunk. In defense of this episode, Allen claimed that someone must of “put something “ in her drink, because she would never get that drunk at an award ceremony.

Allen recalls the event, writing: “I woke up in my bed at 8am and felt totally fine. So I Googled myself, and then I saw the pictures. It was awful. I can’t believe I got into that state.”

“It leads me to believe somebody put something in my drink because it’s totally not in my repertoire to do something like that.”
