In breaking celebrity news, singer Lily Allen, who just recently experienced the heartbreak of a second miscarriage, was rushed to the hospital over the weekend with a condition called septicemia, also known as blood poisoning. The ailment is potentially life threatening. Her publicist told the U.K.’s Daily Mail that she is “responding well” to treatment.
Allen suffered a miscarriage last week. She was carrying a baby boy whose father is Sam Cooper, and the loss came almost three years after a miscarriage that occurred during her relationship with musician Ed Simons. Allen plans to venture into the fashion industry by opening a vintage clothing shop with her sister Sarah. There is no word on whether her recent health problems have affected that project, a London boutique called Lucy in Disguise.
