Police probe launched after pop star posts this snap to Instagram!

Australian police have launched an internal investigation after singer Lily Allen posted a snap of herself being handcuffed!

Uh oh!

Lily, who has been touring Australia, landed at Gold Coast Airport in Queensland ahead of her appearance at the Splendour In The Grass festival on Sunday, where she was greeted by a handful of fans and a number of Federal Police officers.

The officers agreed to Lily’s request to be put in handcuffs as she knelt down – and an aide took a photograph. 

The singer posted it on her Twitter and Instagram accounts, but the image has since been removed.

An AFP spokesman said, “It appears the members involved were caught in the moment and standard protocol were breached. It is subject to internal processes.”

The 29-year-old gained more than 7,700 likes for the image on Instagram before it was taken down.

Sounds serious! Let’s hope they can see the funny side of it in the end!
