British pop star LILY ALLEN was reportedly subjected to a humiliating strip search after landing in the United Arab Emirates on Thursday (20Nov08) for the launch of an exclusive Dubai hotel.
The Smile singer joined celebrities including Hollywood stars Robert De Niro, Denzel Washington, Charlize Theron and Lindsay Lohan, to watch a performance by Kylie Minogue at the grand opening of the Atlantis Palms Hotel on the man-made Palm Jumeirah Island.
But before mingling with the A-list guests, Allen and her pal Nick Frew were forced to undergo a full-body search by airport security.
According to Britain's The Sun newspaper, Allen was reportedly overheard telling Welsh actor and fellow party guest Rhys Ifans, "I was strip searched at the airport. It wasn't that bad. But Nick got the full works."
However, Allen recovered from the incident in time for the glitzy bash, where she donned a blue strapless gown and accessorised her outfit with $14.9 million (GBP10 million)-worth of borrowed diamonds.
