PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: Paloma Faith heads out for a stroll through London with her musician pal Pete Jolliffe… after admitting she’s going through a ‘personal life crisis’

Paloma Faith was all smiles as she enjoyed a stroll with her musician pal Pete Jolliffe in London on Thursday.

The singer, 41, wrapped up in a black coat and added inches with matching heels as she chatted to the drum and bass producer on a busy Soho street.

It comes after Paloma, who is in a long-term relationship with Leyman Lahcine and announced at the beginning of 2022 that she was having a ‘personal life crisis’.

Leyman wore a white T-shirt and black trousers, which he layered beneath a grey jacket as the Upside Down songstress gazed adoringly at him.

Paloma and Lahcine, who had been together since 2013 and share two daughters, aged five and 18 months, no longer follow each other on Instagram, however she and Pete do.

They have never revealed the name of their children and have chosen to keep them out of the public eye.

Representatives for Paloma and Leyman have been contacted for comment by MailOnline. 

Paloma admitted she’s having a personal life ‘crisis’ and gets ‘anxiety’ from ‘being around people’ as she opened up to her Instagram followers in January. 

The talented star shared a stunning selfie as she explained her social media absence and assured fans she’s working on new music.

She penned: ‘I havent [sic] been posting much on here because I’ve been having a few crisis in my personal life.

‘But I want you all to know I’m grateful for you all and I’m writing new music, and working on loads of bits and bobs too.

‘But I’m in the middle of what can only be described as a cluster f**k. It’s music and writing and working keeping me going!

‘Also, food for thought, you never hear a man described as a “career man” do you I’ve been described so many times as a “career woman” and it just dawned on me.
