Lily Allen is opening up about her relationship with ex-husband Sam Cooper.
The 33-year-old "Smile" singer and My Thoughts Exactly author gets candid about everything from marriage to mental health in the Nov. 2018 issue of Cosmopolitan's UK edition. Allen and Cooper, who tied the knot in 2011 and share two children together, split in 2016. Inside the magazine, Allen talks about her Sheezus tour and how she wasn't able to take her kids with her on the road.
"I had always assumed I'd chuck my kid over my shoulder and take them around the world," Allen tells the outlet. "But Sam didn't want that. He didn't think it was a stable environment for them. I think it was quite selfish. He got to stay at home and have the family that I'd just spent three years making inside me. I had to go out and earn money and leave that family behind."
