Lily Allen denies boutique trouble

British singer Lily Allen has dismissed reports she has been forced to shut her clothes shop in London.

The pop star hung up her microphone last year (10) to start a family and open a designer boutique, Lucy in Disguise, with her half-sister Sarah Owen.

Britain's Mail on Sunday reports Allen is closing the store and opening a "pop-up shop" as a "last-ditch attempt to save things".

But the singer, who is expecting her first child with husband Sam Cooper, insists her business will only be running from the temporary site before moving to another location next month (Aug11).

In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Lucy in Disguise has NOT closed, it has moved to a temporary pop up on Lowndes st, before we move to our permanent premises... which will be on Lexington Street W1 from August."

And Allen is taking measures to prevent any further speculation that her boutique is in trouble.

She adds, "If any other publication wants to write deliberately misleading articles about Lucy in Disguise, feel free, I WILL sue you."
