Is leona lewis dating simon cowel
Speaking of Liam in glowing terms, Leona says: “He is a really sweet, lovely guy. We have been friends for a year-and-a-half.” She’s apologetic about not elaborating. “I’ve learned from having relationships before that have been speculated about that it’s best not to talk about it.” She says it’s the only way she can have a love life now that she is a global star. Usually the other person doesn’t get a say, so it’s really one-sided and unfair,” she says.
Sometimes it seems fame has cast a shadow over Leona’s love life.
Maybe, as they share the same management, she’s under instructions not to dash the hopes of millions of 1D’s female fans.
Aged 27, Leona is eight years his senior, but last week they were reported to be dating after he split from his girlfriend.
Her seven-year relationship with childhood sweetheart Lou Al-Chamaa broke down in 2010 amid claims the ex-electrician couldn’t cope with Leona’s celebrity status.
She began a romance with German dancer Dennis Jauch shortly afterwards and for a while it looked like she had found someone who understood the chaotic demands of her showbiz lifestyle. Leona’s hectic schedule was reportedly to blame for them splitting after 18 months together. You don’t feel lonely because someone’s always there – especially when you’re travelling and need a bit of normality.
Yes, she confirms for the first time she’s split from her German dancer boyfriend, and, yes, she’s friends with 19-year-old One Direction heartthrob Liam Payne.
But ask for any more about him and she’s frustratingly coy.
And it turns out the 30-year-old has chosen to air her feelings on why she decided to leave through her new music rather than any statements or public declaration.The source told The Sun newspaper: "Leona doesn't want to slag anyone off in interviews or on the telly – she wants to let the music do the talking."One track on the album, entitled I Am features the lyrics, "I am somebody without you, I am free without you, I am stronger without you", while another song, Fire, exclaims "I'm set free. I'm happy and I've earned it.""Some of the lyrics sound as if she's talking about a break-up from a boyfriend, but they're actually about leaving Simon," the source continued."She had already written most of the album with her song writing partner Toby Gad before she signed the deal with Island.Since quitting Simon Cowell's label Syco last year to join rival Island Records at Universal, Leona Lewis has written several tracks on her next album under the new company apparently slamming her old boss.After winning The X Factor, Lewis worked with Syco for seven years but had reportedly had enough of the control that the label tried to enforce on her, leaving it for good in the middle of 2014."It's no exaggeration to say that Leona was driven to the depths of despair by the end of her time signed to Syco," a source close to the Bleeding Love singer reveals.She knew Syco would never have let her release these songs."The publicly unnamed album will be available to buy in July and will be her first purely original release since 2012, aside from 2013's Christmas, With Love, which consisted of a compilation of covers and tracks created by Lewis.
TALKING relationships with Leona Lewis is a game of cat and mouse.
