Lily Allen's Sister On Sibling Rivalry
Their childhood wasn't all smiles...
Lily Allen’s older sister Sarah has said that Lily was never the adoring little sister that she’d hope for.
Sarah, 30, who is shares the same mother as Lily, claims that the five-year age gap was the reason behind their weird relationship.
She told Stylist Magazine: “I’ve spent a lot of time feeling frustrated because I'm not particularly amazing at any one thing. I think Lily was angry at me for a lot of the stuff that happened in our childhood. I'm five years older so I was having my whole teenage experience just as Lily was forming her opinions.
“She was not the little sister I expected at all. When mum was pregnant I thought I was going to have an adoring sister who wanted to be guided by me. But it became clear really early on that Lily was a fiercely independent spirit who would take guidance from no one.”
They obviously get along now however, and run a designer clothes store together in London called Lucy In Disguise.
