Leona Lewis cancels tour post split
London: Singer Leona Lewis has reportedly called off plans to tour Australia, Asia and Europe to recover from a broken heart following her split from longtime boyfriend Lou Al-Chamaa.
The "Bleeding Love" hitmaker is said to be struggling to cope since parting ways with her childhood sweetheart last month and has axed reported plans to take her trek around the world so she can heal with the support of her loved ones, reports mirror.co.uk.
"Leona`s heart just wasn`t in the tour towards the end of the UK leg. She was upset, teary and heartbroken over her split with Lou," said a source.
"She`d been with him for 10 years. This was the love of her life. The last thing she wanted was to be on the road away from a support network of friends and family. She wasn`t up for it emotionally," the source added.
But the star is channelling her emotions into recording new material in the studio.
"She`s full of ideas. She`s got a new lease of life in songwriting. She`s putting her heartbreak into her music," said the source.
