In London today, Leona Lewis was signing copies of her autobiography Dreams. Why Leona has a biography at all at this age can be discussed at another time. After she had been signing for about 90 minutes a man came up to her, handed her his book to sign and she did. When she looked up to hand him the book, he punched her in the face.
Leona grabbed her eye and ran away while security tackled the puncher. While security was getting him to the ground the man wouldn't stop laughing. The bookstore where Leona was signing says they take security very seriously and that this was the first time something like this had happened. I have been to lots of book signings and I am surprised nothing like this has happened before. It isn't like they have metal detectors or security guards patting you down when you go to one of these things and there are a lot of people who are unbalanced enough to do something like this.
Leona was scheduled to perform tonight on the BBC but pulled out.
