Leona Lewis’ hectic work schedule has ended the singer’s relationship with boyfriend of more than a decade, Lou Al-Chamaa.
The “Bleeding Love” crooner and Lou met when they were just 10 but have decided to call time on their long-running union after Leona’s busy work schedule stopped them from being able to spend any quality time together. Leona was devastated when Lou failed to show up for her performance at London’s O2 Arena last Wednesday night.
“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. Then there’s the fact she’s been totally immersed in preparing for her tour. They’ve barely spend any time together whatsoever,” a friend close to the songbird spilled to British gossip rag Sunday Mirror.
The source added: “Not showing up on Wednesday was the final straw. She’ll always treasure her time with Lou but she knows it’s a relationship that’s seen better times.”
