London, Nov 2 : Pop star Lily Allen has revealed that she was left in tears after learning that Russell Brand had resigned from the BBC following the prank calls row.
Brand quit his job as a BBC radio presenter on Wednesday over a series of messages he and Jonathan Ross left on Fawlty Towers star Andrew Sachs' answer phone.
On one of the messages, which were broadcast on Brand's BBC Radio 2 programme, the comedian claimed he had slept with Sachs' granddaughter.
The pair also joked that the actor might kill himself as a result of the comedian's claim, reports the Daily Star.
The 'Smile' hitmaker insists that she was devastated by the saga that eventually cost Brand his job and saw Ross suspended for 12 weeks without pay.
She tells The London Paper, "I cried all yesterday. I didn't think it was too offensive. It wasn't the funniest thing in the world but it wasn't that bad."
