Who would want to hurt the sweet Leona Lewis? The “Bleeding Love” singer was reportedly attacked at her book signing for Dreams at Waterstone’s booksellers in London’s Piccadilly today.
The attacker reportedly hit Leona in the face as she was in the middle of signing books for fans.
Her spokesperson tells JustJared.com, “Leona was the victim of an unprovoked attack this afternoon at her book signing. The police were called immediately and medical attention has been sought. Leona is understandably shaken and apologizes to the fans she was unable to meet and complete signings.”
Waterstones also released a statement, saying, “There was an incident at our Leona Lewis signing this afternoon and the event was immediately stopped. We are now doing everything we can to support the police in their enquiries. We take security at our book signings extremely seriously and this is the first time anything of this nature has happened. We would like to thank Leona for her professionalism and we are extremely sad that this event was ruined for her, and her fans, many of whom queued from the early hours of the morning to meet her.”
