The British singer mentioned that her addiction began when she was still in school. She stated that alcohol became "co-dependent" to her.
The situation got worst when she started being a recording artist as she constantly wants validation from others.

Following this, it broke her heart, and starting "burying" herself in drugs and alcohol because she was devastated.
Her addiction didn't stop there; when she married her first husband, Sam Cooper, Allen revealed that she was having problems with her weight as she doesn't look like a pop star with that type of body.

"I'm in a really happy and healthy relationship. He's sober, has been sober for 20 years now," the singer added.
