After the shocked and tearful Leona Lewis endured being punched in the face during her book signing in a London bookstore last October 14, the identity of the person who did it was revealed to be Peter Kowalczyk. He is 26 years old and he auditioned but was rejected in hugely popular UK TV talent show The X Factor, which Leona won in 2006.
Peter's father, Tomasz, told reporters that he has already been sectioned under the Mental Health Act and is now at a psychiatric hospital. Leona Lewis, on the other hand, issued a statement that she is devastated and upset about the incident. To cope with the trauma, Leona is now accompanied by boyfriend Lou Al-Chamaa and her father Joe at her London home. According to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, Leona said that: "I can't get his grinning face out of my head. Why did he do this to me? What did I do?"
With that, the 24-year-old British singer has no choice but to increase her security to ensure nothing like this happens again. Peter Kowalczyk has had history of mental health problems and is now undergoing music therapy to combat his psychological problems. Photo from Mirror.co.uk.
