Lily Allen says she was so embarrassed about having liposuction she lied to an ex claiming the scars left by the cosmetic procedure were from a hip replacement surgery.

Allen, 35, shared the information during an informal Q&A on her Instagram stories. No topic was out of bounds and one of her followers asked: “Ever had any cosmetic procedures?”

She replied: “Yeah I had lipo once on my bum many years ago.”

“I was with this guy and he was like ‘what are those scars?’ and I was so embarrassed that I said, ‘it’s from a hip replacement’.”

“Yeah. It's been like four and a half months. Not bad.”
