Lily Allen amends Twitter rant after legal threat

Lily Allen has been forced to tone down a vitriolic Twitter tirade against a journalist after the writer threatened legal action.

Allen recently denounced reporter Katie Nicholl as a “lying c**t” after Nicholl reported that Allen and partner Sam Cooper – who are currently mourning the loss of their unborn child last month – are planning a wedding in 2011.

However, soon after it was posted, Allen tweeted saying Nicholl was threatening to contact her lawyers if she did not retract the comments.

Allen said she was going to “amend” the comments, but only did so slightly, saying: "Kati Nichol (sic) has been in touch and has threatened to consult her lawyer if I don't take that tweet down. She thinks it was too heavy handed. So I'll amend it. Katie Nicholl I THINK you're a c**t, leave me out of your sh**ty column, you know nothing about the intimate details of my life. There's a time and a place for your musings where I'm concerned, and it's not now."
