Leona Lewis may have made “Bleeding Love” an international #1 track, but she’s always enjoyed a very healthy love life…until now. Lewis, 25, has just split from her boyfriend of over a decade, Lou Al-Chamaa. Here’s what sources close to the couple are saying.
Since rising to fame in 2008, Leona Lewis has been the music industry’s sweetheart. It’s reported she doesn’t party or drink and has stayed extraordinarily close to her family in London and the boyfriend she’s had for over 10 years. Lou Al-Chamaa, an electrician-turned-Sony talent scout, appeared incredibly supportive of girlfriend Leona’s success and has joined her on many tours and exotic holidays, but when he ceased to show up to her gigs recently, it was clear to surrounding parties that the two weren’t getting along.
A source close to Leona Lewis has said, “Things have been under pressure for ages between them and they’ve finally realized that things are not going to be able to progress … Leona’s schedule means she’s in the States a lot when Lou’s in London and then when he goes out she’s over here.” The source continued, “Then there’s the fact she’s been totally immersed in preparing for her tour. They’ve barely spend any time together whatsoever.”
