It might have been a minute since you’ve thought about British singer Lily Allen, if you’ve ever thought about her at all. But her name came up recently in the news cycle after Zoe Kravitz appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live.”
During the interview, a caller asked Kravitz a question about an incident Allen detailed in her book. Earlier this year, Allen published a book in which she detailed a kiss she shared with Kravitz while the two were on tour together. The details were particularly salacious because Allen was still married at the time.
According to The Daily Mail, she writes: ‘For my New York shows, Zoe Kravitz and her band Lolawolf supported me, so I got to know Zoe a bit. We became friends. Later in the tour, when we were in Washington, the girls and their nanny, Jess, came out to visit me for a few days, but I had to go back to New York for a day or so for work. Zoe and I went out partying and ended up kissing. I heard that later that same night she’d got down with A$AP Rocky.”
During this same period in her life, Allen also detailed sleeping with female prostitutes during the breakdown of her marriage.
And while Allen remembers the whole thing as a consensual experience between two adults, Kravitz explained that it was something entirely different.
The caller asked: I was wondering if Lily Allen warned you that she was going to write about the two of you kissing in her autobiography? And how did that come about?
Zoe Kravitz: “Who’s Lily Allen? If by kissing, she means attacking, then yes she kissed me. She attacked me.
Andy Cohen: But is that how she portrayed it in the book?
Zoe: No it was portrayed like I wanted it.
Andy: Did you read the book?
Zoe: I don’t think anybody read the book.
There were some real zingers during this exchange, still the fact remains. She was assaulted by a woman who’s advances she did not want.
