Leona Lewis Attacked in London

With tears still pouring down her face, pop star Leona Lewis left a book signing in London this afternoon -- after someone allegedly slapped the "Happy" singer in the face.

Witnesses tell the BBC that someone "slapped" and "punched" the pop singer inside the Waterstone's Piccadilly Circus bookstore in front of a crowd of people.

Police tell TMZ they arrested a 29-year-old man on suspicion of assault and Lewis was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

A rep for Leona confirms the incident, telling us: "Leona was the victim of an unprovoked attack. 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."

What's the stupid cow crying about? If someone slapped/punched me, I'd stomp a mudhole up they a**. She could probably use another smack for the whining.

How could anyone attack Leona Lewis?, there's not even a reason to hater her, she's nice, sweet, peaceful... she barely talks so I don't think she said something bad for that guy to get mad at her.

LEONA, WE LOVE YOU!

My thoughts and prayers are with Leona. It is miles beyond me what would cause someone to hit a beautiful, talented, sweet, gentle young woman who stays out of trouble and the tabloids and focuses only on her music. I can't even begin to express how disgusted I am by this unspeakable act. I hope that worthless bastard is punished to the fullest extent of the law.
