Lily Allen grew up around fame, but paved her own way

After scoring her first No. 1 single over 15 years ago, Lily Allen has become a millionaire. Despite her father, actor Keith Allen, and mother, film producer Alison Owen, being successful public figures, Allen has managed to stand on her own two feet and shine on her own. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the "Hard Out Here" hitmaker is worth an impressive $5 million as of 2021.

Allen may have grown up around money and may have not had financial struggles before rising to fame, but that doesn't mean she hasn't had any lows surrounding money after becoming a star. As of this writing, Allen has sold 5 million albums and achieved global hits. With that being said, her label only offered her £25,000 when signing her five-album deal. "I signed that deal when I was 19 years old and I'm still in it. It was a five-album deal for £25,000. And I paid for the advice to sign that deal and it was not good advice," she told Fault Magazine in 2018. Allen told the same publication the main reason she decided to release a memoir was that she was "running out of" money.

On August 3, Allen will make her West End debut in London. The Grammy Award-nominated singer is set to star in "2:22 – A Ghost Story" as Jenny until October. Let's hope she's receiving the paycheck she deserves!
