Leona’s attacker ‘X Factor reject’

The man who punched Leona Lewis in the face at a London book signing on October 14 had previously auctioned for X Factor, it has been revealed.

Scotland Yard confirmed Peter Kowalczyk had been charged with assault and sectioned under the Mental Health Act after hitting Leona at Waterstone’s in Piccadilly, where the former X Factor champ was signing copies of her new autobiography, Dreams.

His father told The Sun the 29-year-old was jealous of Leona’s fame, after trying out for X Factor but failing to get past the first round. “He wants to be a singer. He went along and queued at X Factor. How far he got with it? Nowhere.” Tomasz Kowalczyk was quoted as saying.

Following the incident, Leona released a statement to fans, saying the attack had left her shaken and in pain. “Thank you so much for your support. It was a horrible shock and left me extremely hurt and upset. I’m sorry to those I wasn’t able to meet at the signing. Love you all.”

Kowalczyk will appear at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court on October 26.

  1. What has she done that so important that she has to write a book about? she took part in a game show that if you come in the top 3 you win 15, 20 and 25mins of fame. What a steaming pile of dung.

  2. It\’s true, what has Leona done to render writing her autobiography ALREADY?!!! (I bet Simon Cowell is behind that one :-D) I mean she is all of what 22?? I wont be buying it. But I hope it makes her loads of money. Just hope she don\’t fall into the same sad lives as the Kerry\’s and Katie\’s of the world who have also written autobiograpahies!! But Leona seems very well grounded and has always kept her clothes on which says alot about her upbringing I think. YOU GO GIRRRRRRLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!! Keep bleeding keep keep bleeding in love. I sang that at karaoke the other night I was CRAPPPPP…….
