Elton Helps Lily Allen
Elton 61, is known for his kindness and has lent an extravagant hand to celebrity pals incluing Victoria Beckham, 34, and a once-off-the-rails Robbie Williams, 34.
Well if a sojourn at the Rocket Man’s £6 million mansion in Old Windsor, Berks, worked for them, we don’t think Lily will be about to argue.
David thinks she needs a break from the media eye and believes staying with them is a phenomenally good idea. Even Lily, 23 accepts that her well-documented non-stop partying needs to be curbed and Elton wants to take her under his glittering wing.
She was absolutely mortified when she heard people comparing her to the sublimely bonkers Britney Spears, 26.
So much so, she drove to the exhibition with her brother Alfie, 21, and his gal Jaime Winston, 23, so she wouldn’t be tempted to get blotto again.
She spent the night flirting with her ex, A&R man Seb Chew, 31, and even flung her arms around him at one point.
Although they left separately, Seb sneakily jumped into her car when he thought that no-one was watching.
But good news for Lily – at least one person likes her nu-rave pink barnet. It’s just a shame it’s cross-dressing artist Grayson Perry, 48.
He cornered her at the bash to give Lily the original of his limited edition headscarf collection, which accompanies his Unpopular Culture exhibition.
