Paloma Faith has opened up about her split from ex-husband Lyman Lahcine, admitting she feels “really alone” when she lies in bed at night.
The singer and mother of two, 42, married the French artist, 36, in 2017, with rumors of their split first surfacing in November 2022.
Paloma appeared on Thursday’s episode of Lorraine and chatted to the presenter about being single again while raising her daughters, aged six and two.
She said: ‘As a mother it’s so hard. Now that I’m alone with the kids, it’s so easy to say, ‘here’s a screen,’ but we need to interact with each other through play and cultivate their imaginations.”
‘I’m afraid of the day when they don’t want to play with me anymore, it’s going too fast now.’

‘They have no idea what I do for a living, I’m just a mother. I’m just ignored.’
Paloma’s latest single is called How To Leave A Man and the star discussed the loneliness that can arise after a breakup.
She said: ‘I’m still going through it. It’s the first time I’m promoting something that I still experience.
‘I don’t act out much about this, I just get upset and cry. It doesn’t take much to tune into those feelings.
“When you’re at home, especially at night when the kids are in bed, you feel really alone.”
It comes after Paloma first opened up about the split. According to The sunshe said, “In recent years I have come closer to failure, despair, sadness and loss than ever in my life.
‘I had a choice: I could disappear into my melancholy or I could wear it as a badge of honor.
‘It wasn’t an option for me to stand still and break down. I have two children. I am and will always be the breadwinner – a source of strength and support for many others.

“And I wasn’t happy, I wasn’t mentally well, and I had to do something about it.”
Looking ahead to dating other people, she added: “I’ll never be perfect, so if that’s what you want, find someone else to cheat on.” Be boring.
‘It’s never boring for me. Maybe annoying, maybe annoying, maybe stressful. But not boring.’
Ahead of her new single How You Leave A Man, Paloma, who has since moved on with new boyfriend Andrew Soar, also revealed that she had to ask Lyman for permission because the single contains cutting comments towards him.
The singer also revealed that one of the songs on the album called Divorce is the “hardest to hear” for her.
Paloma added that despite her painful fracture, she had to “rip off the cast” to stay strong for her children as she still deals with Lyman on a regular basis.
