Well what the fecking feck?!
British singer (and islandista by descent) Leona Lewis was randomly slapped by a male ‘fan’ at a book signing today at a Waterstone’s book store in London.
One eyewitness told the BBC:
“My brother saw the whole incident. He [the attacker] walked up there with the book, she signed it and, as she looked up, he just punched her.”
“She was running out with her hand over her eye and I just saw a man on the floor. Suddenly the security all jumped on him and they were trying to pull him out and he was just laughing, he thought it was funny.’
Obviously, the book signing did not continue as Leona was majorly shaken up, even if not too badly hurt (from initial reports).
Her management released a statement a short while ago saying:
‘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 apologises to the fans she was unable to meet and complete signings for.
