After much speculation, the X Factor beauty has split with her childhood sweetheart, Lou al-Chamaa
Speculation first grew, after the electrician turned Sony talent scout failed to show at many of his famous beau’s UK gigs, part of her first world tour.
And now it’s been confirmed the famous pair – who have been friends since the age of ten – have finally split.
‘Obviously being a long-term relationship, it makes things very complicated and extremely difficult,’ said one insider.
‘But they have decided it is best they go their separate ways.’
Reports suggest Leona and her other half grew apart after the Bleeding Love singer’s constant travelling, revealing it was Lou who finally called time on their long relationship.
And it seems their relationship could have been on the rocks for a while.
‘They are still in love, but Leona’s lifestyle is making things really hard‘, a source told Star magazine back in May.
‘Her career is doing so well, but to keep growing as a singer, she has to work even harder. Unfortunately, this leaves her very little time to work on her relationship.’
And lovely Leona was spotted seeking advice from a rather unlikely source over the weekend.
The star was spied chatting to Pamela Anderson at exclusive London club Whisky Mist after partying the night away.
