Career

She was the vocalist of mid-1990s indie bands Powder and Lodger, which she fronted after a brief period at LAMDA, and as a solo-artist under the name Pearl. Throughout her music career, Lowe was nicknamed Pearl Spam by journalists in the NME.

In 2001 she launched 'Pearl Lowe', her signature range of lace curtains, cushions and hand-made dresses.[1]

Lowe published her memoir All That Glitters in 2007, a somber look at overcoming addiction.[2]

She occasionally models, represented by Premier Model Management, she also is managed by (international talent agency) for her tv work and was briefly the face of Agent Provocateur. Lowe was an ambassador for the homeless charity Crisis, but is now an ambassador for action on addiction.[3]

Personal life

Since 1995 her partner has been Supergrass drummer Danny Goffey, with whom she has three children, Alfie (born 1996), Frankie (born 1999) and Betty (born 2005).

In 2001, rumours spread that Goffey and Lowe had engaged in 'wife-swapping' with Jude Law and his now ex-wife Sadie Frost, whilst on holiday in Greece. Although Law denied this, Lowe later told News of the World in 2005:

The story's correct, even though I wish it wasn't.... We thought it would be fun, but it turned out to have some unpleasant repercussions. Danny and I had real problems in our relationship as a result.[4][5]

The swinging sessions are also speculated to be what caused Jude and Sadie's divorce.[6][7]

Goffey and Lowe married on December 4 2008, in Babington House, Somerset [8].

She also has a daughter, Daisy Lowe (born 1989), with singer Gavin Rossdale. [9] Lowe writes in her book, All That Glitters, that Daisy was the product of a one night stand between her and Rossdale following an argument she had with her ex-husband, Bronner Handwerger. Paternity was not questioned and Lowe listed "Bronner Lowe" on Daisy's birth certificate. Rossdale had initially offered to take a paternity test, but backed away. It wasn't until Daisy found out that neither Lowe nor Handwerger had the requisite O-type blood that she shared, that Lowe sought a paternity test through her lawyers. The paternity test revealed that Daisy's godfather, Rossdale, was in fact her biological father.

Lowe and her family live in the Somerset countryside, after residing in North London for many years.[2] [10] She is also known for her friendships with Rhys Ifans and Liv Tyler amongst many others.
