Leona Lewis Injured in Horse Riding Incident

Yet another celebrity has felt the wrath of their horse! Leona Lewis was just injured when her horse, which was a birthday present from friends, turned on her during a normal ride.

The horse then head butted her, splitting Leona’s lip open, and knocking her down. The incident has reportedly forced her to postpone the recording of her new album while she recovers from the shock of it all.

A source tells The Daily Mirror, “Leona has been riding since she was a child and has never had a fear of horses. So she was really shaken up when the horse turned on her.”

“Something startled the horse and it flicked its head back and smacked Leona full in the face.”

“She was knocked flying by the force of it. Everyone rushed over to see if she was OK, she was holding her face in agony.”

Besides the initial shock, and a fat lip, Leona is reportedly recovering well, and was even spotted shopping on Melrose the following day.

In other Leona news, she’s just been named as the first artist in the lineup for Capital FM’s Summertime Ball at London’s Emirates Stadium on June 7th. Let’s hope she’s all healed by then!
