ViP: WE ARE FAMLILY; Star unites warring mum & brother after punch-up Rift ends at fashion show.

Byline: By Alice Walker & Emma Donnan

LILY ALLEN has something to Smile about after reuniting her warring mum and brother.

The singer's younger bro ALFIE was arrested back in March for allegedly assaulting their mum ALISON OWEN.

Since then the family has been embroiled in a rift, with Lily desperately trying to make the peace.

So she was delighted when the three of them had an emotional reunion at her fashion launch in London last week for high street chain New Look.

Our source said: "Seeing Alfie and hermum sitting together in the VIP area and chatting really meant a lot to her." Film producer Alison called the cops to her Islington home claiming Alfie, 20, had assaulted her and caused a head wound. He was held in custody overnight.

Our source close to Lily, 22, said: "Poor Lily was devastated by the whole thing. It was basically a family argument that got out of hand. She has been trying to get them to patch things up over the past two months."

Lily, a sensation since her hit single Smile, is devoted to Alfie and dedicates a song to him on her album Alright, Still.

She axed 20 dates from her US tour last month after feeling homesick and flying back to Britain.
