Recalling Yates, who died on September 17, 2000, at the age of 41 after an accidental drug overdose, Allen said that she first met Yates at a London restaurant while working as a waitress, reports metro.co.uk.
According to the "Smile" singer, Paula visited the eatery, called 192, for lunch and was accompanied by a known drug dealer.
Detailing the meeting in her new autobiography, "My Thoughts Exactly", Allen said: "The restaurant was where everyone groovy in the media met each other to exchange gossip and network over lunch and drinks and dinner."
"You could tell she was in trouble when you looked at her. I had to talk to the police about seeing her, as part of their investigation. She was joined at lunch by this guy that we all knew was a heroin dealer. They'd left together. It was the saddest sight," Allen added.
