Earlier today, singer Leona Lewis had a book-signing event at Waterstone’s bookshop in London to promote her new autobiographical book “Dreams”.Â Unfortunately what was supposed to be a fun fan meet-&-greet turned into a bad situation. A man was arrested forÂ assaulting the singer.
One fanÂ on the sceneÂ told theÂ BBCNewsÂ “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. He [my brother] actually heard the impact.”Â
Another eyewitness added: “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.”
Lewis’s spokesman added: “The police were called immediately and medical attention has been sought. Leona’s understandably badly shaken and apologises to the fans she was unable to meet and complete signings for.”
Here’s some videoÂ of what went down in the store:
