Lily Allen recovering from blood poisoning after miscarriage

November 8, 2010 | 12:04 pm

Lily Allen recovering from blood infection. There's a hint of a silver lining for Lily Allen's recent personal storm -- the British singer is reportedly recovering from potentially fatal blood poisoning on the heels of losing her pregnancy.

Allen was diagnosed over the weekend with septicemia, a bacterial condition that accounts for tens of thousands of fatalities per year.

"[Lily] is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve," her rep Murray Chalmers told People magazine.

Allen "thanks everyone for their messages of support and again asks that she and partner Sam Cooper be left alone whilst she recovers," he said.

Her hospital stint directly follows the loss of her and Cooper's expected child; Allen had been about six months pregnant.

The report indicates Allen has responded significantly to the outpouring of fan correspondence.
