Lily told a podcast she had been at a party with the executive in 2016 before returning to their hotel.

She said: “I couldn’t find my room keys. So he was like, ‘Well, why don’t you sleep in my bed while I go and get the keys or whatever.’

“So I passed out in his bed. I woke up and he was in my bed naked — slapping my bum.”

She wrote about it in her 2018 autobiography My Thoughts Exactly, and later discussed it with Max Lousada, a Warner chief executive.

He told her he was unaware of the alleged assault before reading her book.

When asked on the podcast if he said he would do anything about it, Lily said: “No.”

Yesterday the label said: “We take accusations of sexual misconduct extremely seriously and investigate claims that are raised with us.”


On the podcast mum-of-two Lily explained why she decided against reporting her alleged attacker — believed to work for Warner — to the police, She said: “Most of the industry knows who he is.

“I remember thinking about his mum and how she would deal with the news that her son was a sexual predator and I was prioritising everybody else except for myself.”
