Lily Allen Regrets Missing Out On '£61 Million' Thanks To Bitcoins

Singer admits she has missed out

By On

D'oh! British pop star Lily Allen has revealed this week that she potentially missed out on millions of pounds after she turned down a gig for online company Bitcoins in 2009.

Lily Allen has an estimated fortune of £6 million, however the Hard Out There singer could have more than doubled her money if she had performed a gig way back in 2009. The 28-year-old songstress has admitted that Bitcoins offered her 'hundreds of thousands of bitcoins' in exchange for her singing on a livestream.


The company Bitcoins was started by a man named Sutushi Nakamoto in 2009. The mysterious Japanese native devised a formula for techno-fiends to use when they complete multiple computer codes which then results in a Bitcoin. Once created, they can either be traded, sold or bought.

Clever members who have held onto their coins are able to sell them now for £610 each. In America you can even buy things like pizza using the virtual currency.

She may have missed out on the big bucks but don't feel too bad for the British pop star just yet though. Lucky Lily is currently on holiday with her husband Sam Cooper and their two daughters 2-year-old Ethel Mary and 11-month-old Marnie Rose.

Lils is set to earn plenty of money in 2014, with a busy schedule in the warmer months guaranteeing her a big sum of money.

As she chatted to her pal Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1, she admitted that she will be playing at Glastonbury over the summer. "It got confirmed yesterday. That's the first big thing I'm going to be doing. I'll be doing 16 weeks of festivals over the summer and then tour."
