Singer Leona Lewis was signing copies of her autobiography at a London bookstore when a man waiting in line attacked her and punched her in the head!
Her rep released the following statement, "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." Aww, poor girl!
Leona was seen leaving the bookstore in tears, and Scotland Yard spokesman Eddie Townsend confirmed that Lewis was taken to the hospital as a precaution. Townsend added that a 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of bodily harm.
Feel better hun!
Maybe it's time to beef up security?
