Lily Allen's father has warned her never to take hard drugs.
British comic star Keith Allen suspects his daughter has taken cocaine and smokes marijuana but has told her to avoid substances like heroin and Ketamine, otherwise she could end up like her troubled pop rival Amy Winehouse.
When asked what advice Keith gives his 22-year-old daughter, he replied: "Have you ever met Lily!
"Just advice like, 'Stay off the Ketamine, love. Don?t go on the brown (heroin) - look at Amy. "
In August, Amy was rushed to hospital after reportedly taking a huge drug overdose, which included heroin.
Keith says he and Lily have open conversations about drugs and he is happy she is so honest with him.
He said: "A typical conversation between my and Lily is, 'Dad, have you got any coke?, to which I?ll say, 'Shut up.'
"But I feel secure because I know my daughter and the person she is."
Keith recently revealed he used Lily to help him sell drugs when she was just a baby.
The 54-year-old actor admitted he took her to the world-famous Glastonbury festival as a "sales tool".
He said: "I didn't see what was wrong with taking little Lily along with me as a sales tool, rather like the homeless lads do with dogs.
"Lily sat next to the stall gurgling in her pushchair while I cranked up the sales patter and knocked out the lager."
