When Lily Allen reportedly collapsed at the Notting Hill Carnival last weekend, media outlets had a field day speculating about the drinking habits of the mother-of-two.

And it looks like the Hard Out Here singer is determined to set the record straight.

Taking to Twitter yesterday, 31-year-old Lily shared an email which focussed on her wellbeing and conduct during the annual event in London.

"As discussed I've just been asked to run past you a story The Sun is planning on running tomorrow," it began.

"Based around fears for Lily's health as she's pictured drinking/ smoking suspicious cigarettes/ vomiting before passing out on a stage at the Notting Hill Carnival yesterday,, and having to be carried off seemingly unconscious over Dan/ boyfriend's shoulders."

Responding to the speculation, Lily tweeted: "Truth is I'm just a lightweight, I had 2 cans of Strongbow on an empty stomach."

Assuring her fans that the incident involved nothing more sinister than that, she added: "I'm here now and I'm absolutely fine."

The response Lily's explanation has received has been mixed, with some followers offering support and others using the opportunity to slam the star.

"There really are so many worse things in the world than a drunk celeb! You're human. We've all been there," wrote one while another remarked: "Great example for youngsters...a classy mum..."

We can't see Lily taking that one lying down.
