Singer Lily Allen Has a Miscarriage

Lily Allen, who announced her pregnancy last month, has had a miscarriage.

"She and her partner, Ed Simons, will be making no further comment and we ask that their privacy be respected during this difficult time," Allen's spokesman, Jon Bills, said Friday in a statement.

Simons, 37, is a member of The Chemical Brothers.

Allen's cheeky debut album, "Alright, Still," which includes the hit single "Smile," was released in the U.S. last year. The 22-year-old British pop singer's follow-up CD is expected to be released this year.
