More horrible news for Lily Allen.

Just hours after tweeting that she still felt "very sick" following last week's miscarriage, the British singer has been hospitalized for the potentially lethal blood-poisoning condition septicaemia.

"She is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve," her rep told the U.K's Daily Mail.

"Lily thanks everyone for their messages of support and again asks that she and partner Sam Cooper be left alone whilst she recovers."

Allen, 25, was hospitalized with an unspecified viral condition in the days before suffering her miscarriage. Because she was pregnant at the time, her rep said she could not take the proper medications.

If left untreated, septicaemia can lead to organ failure and even death.
