Leona Lewis 'Punched' at Book Signing
The event ended immediately, and Lewis was quickly escorted out and spotted in tears. Lewis' rep said the singer sustained bruising to the side of her head and was left "shaken" by the incident.
The bookstore's rep said they "are now doing everything we can to support the police. We take security at our book signings extremely seriously and this is the first time anything of this nature has happened."
"We would like to thank Leona for her professionalism and we are extremely sad that this event was ruined for her and her fans," a rep added.
'Dreams' is due to be released in November and will give fans a personal insight into her life behind the headlines and reveal Lewis' path from normal girl to global superstar.
Lewis was scheduled to appear on the BBC's 'The One Show' on Wednesday night, however a spokesperson confirmed she has pulled out.
