  • The singer has expressed her anger, after the rapper wrote an insensitive post about abortion on Twitter

    Furious British songstress Lily Allen has hit out at rapper Kanye West, after the US star posted controversial comments about abortion on Twitter.

    Lily, who suffered a tragic miscarriage for the second time in November last year, was quick to vent her fury after reading the unpleasant Tweet – which spoke about the cost of having an abortion – branding it ‘wrong on so many levels.’

    Never has a tweet put me in such a bad mood,’ the angry starlet wrote. ‘This is wrong on so many levels.’

    The message in question – posted earlier in the day by the American rapper – seemed to suggest some woman get pregnant on purpose, to secure payoffs from men.

    ‘An abortion can cost a ballin’ n**** up to 50gs maybe a 100,’ Kanye Tweeted.

    ‘Gold diggin’ b****** be getting pregnant on purpose. #STRAPUP my n*****!’

    He later added: ‘It ain’t happen to me but I know people.’

    Despite his insensitive Tweets sparking outrage, Kanye has yet to apologise for the comments.
