Lily Allen fears terrorist attack

LILY Allen is paranoid about being caught up in a terrorist attack.

The 'Smile' singer - who is pregnant with her first child - was in Paris, France, yesterday (03.10.10) when the British government issued a warning claiming there was a "high threat" of attacks in Europe and advised people not to travel to France.

Lily - who was in the French capital to attend a fashion show for Givenchy's Spring/Summer 2011 collection - had her fears further heightened by a man holding a suspicious looking bottle sat next to her at a taxi rank.

Writing on her twitter page yesterday (04.10.10), she said: "Oh god, foreign office have put people travelling to France on high terror alert!!! I'm in Paris already. Scared being here but scared to get on the Eurostar home.

"Come to think of it. The day before yesterday there was this weird guy balancing a small bottle of something on his knee. He was sat next to me at a taxi rank, I thought he was being strange so I snuck a picture. I hope I'm just being a mad paranoid pregnant lady and that he wasn't a terrorist about to unleash deathly virus. (sic)"

Despite her paranoia, Lily still managed to enjoy the Givenchy show, which was attended by a host of stars, including Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood and his girlfriend Ana Araujo, Courtney Love, Justin Timberlake and Liv Tyler - both of whom are Givenchy ambassadors and advertise fragrances for the fashion house.

Lily, 25, tweeted: "On a lighter night, I went to the Givenchy show earlier on and it was amazing, really amazing. Ricardo Tisci is so brilliant, in my opinion. x (sic)"
