article imageLily Allen Wins Defamation Case, Says No New Album

By KJ Mullins     Sep 26, 2009 in Entertainment
Lily Allen was awarded £10,000 in damages from The Sun after it printed an article saying the singer called Victoria Beckham "a monster." Allen has also stated she will not be going back to the studio for any new albums.
On Wednesday, a court order fined The Sun for defamation and false attribution of authorship to the young singer. The Sun printed an apology in both their newspaper and website Friday.
The false comments had been printed in the May 7 edition of Bizarre magazine.
As the Guardian reports:
"We now accept that Lily didn't say these things to the magazine and we apologise to Lily for the upset and embarrassment caused by repeating them."
There is still pending legal action against the French sports magazine, So Foot. The magazine published the original article according to BBC.
Allen says she won't be releasing any more albums with her label EMI. The singer is planning to working on an acting career instead.
Allen has been one of the youngest singers to campaign against illegal file-sharing.
Allen is currently on tour until December.
A spokesperson for the singer told NME.com that she is not completely quitting the music business, just that the singer has no plans for a future album.
