Lily Allen on Honeymoon in Paris

Thursday, June 23, 2011

LILY Allen has been spending her honeymoon in Paris.

The pop star and her new husband Sam Cooper have enjoyed a visit to the French capital where they have shopping and dining out before they head to the Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, South West England, for the second leg of their post-wedding holiday.

“Lily’s been really chilling out after the stress of organizing the wedding,” a source said.

“They shopped in Zara and Chanel on Tuesday and had dinner at Chez Dumonet in the evening.”

However, Lily — who is pregnant — has admitted Paris was not her first choice of honeymoon destination.

“Paris was not my1st choice, but I’ve been advised not to fly by doctors, and it’s about as exotic as one can get without doing so,” she wrote on Twitter.

The Not Fair singer also complained about the paparazzi who followed her around Paris.

In another tweet, she revealed, “Really enjoying the Parisian papparazzis presence on my honeymoon. Thank god we didn’t want to go for a romantic stroll as husband and wife.”

Lily and Sam will arrive at Glastonbury over the next couple of days and the pair have spent $16,000 on a VIP yurt tent backstage at the festival.

“The yurts are magical and spiritual. They’re silk lined, romantic and the most luxurious and chilled out way to enjoy the festival,” a source said.

“They come with a double bed covered with Egyptian cotton sheets, a champagne fridge, sheep-skin rugs and chandeliers. We even give our guests slippers. We want them to feel 100 per cent at home and happy.

“The yurts are so romantic. We can cover the beds with rose petals and they’re perfect for romantic star-gazing at night.”
