Pop singer Lily Allen has called on school to teach children about divorce.
Speaking to London’s LBC Radio, the 30 year-musician said schoolchildren should be taught practical life skills such as managing money and how to get divorced.
She told host Shelagh Fogarty:
“I’ve never been able to get my head around my finances. I was terrible at maths. I’ve had an accountant in employment since the age of 19.”
She would struggle to help her daughter if she asked for help with practical, financial matters, she admitted, saying she would “not have a clue”.
Allen told the station:
“It’s more me worrying about my children and them having to face the big, bad world without the necessary tools to do so.”
Children should be taught how to manage their money and deal with other financial challenges, she continued.
“An introduction to divorce! I dunno… things that everybody needs to know about!”
The singer, daughter of comedian and actor Keith Allen, released her third studio album in 2014. She has two children.
