By: / November 7, 2010

British songstress Lily Allen was rushed to the hospital this weekend and was treated for septicaemia — a blood poisoning condition that can be fatal.

Britain’s Daily Mail reports he hospitalization comes just days after Allen announced that she had suffered her second miscarriage. Allen was initially released from the hospital, but was rushed back for further treatment after being released. According to a rep for the singer:

“Lily Allen is back in hospital, where she is being treated for septicaemia … She is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve … Lily thanks everyone for their messages of support and again asks that she and partner Sam Cooper be left alone whilst she recovers.”

Allen left a brief message on her Twitter, saying: “Thank you for all your kind messages.”
