Lily Allen recovering from serious blood infection




Lily Allen has been suffering from something even worse than her recent miscarriage: People says she was checked into a clinic last Friday for a potentially fatal blood-poisoning condition. The good news is that she's at least been getting better.

Lily's rep Murray Chalmers told People the 25-year-old was "being treated for septicaemia," a bacterial blood infection, but "is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve."

The British singer had Chalmers add that her fans' letters have been a big help: "Lily thanks everyone for their messages of support and again asks that she and partner Sam Cooper be left alone whilst she recovers," Chalmers said.
