Michael Costello Apologizes to Leona Lewis, Says He's Surprised By What She Said

Michael Costello has apologized to Leona Lewis after she accused him of humiliating her while working together for a charity event in 2014.

The “Bleeding Love” singer says that she was assigned to be dressed by Michael for a charity fashion show in 2014 and she claimed he refused to alter the sample size dress to fit her.

Leona ended up sitting in the audience for the fashion show while all of the other celebrities walked the runway, which caused her body insecurity issues that lasted for years.

Michael wrote an open letter on his Instagram Stories and said he’s surprised by Leona‘s comments because she continued to wear his gowns and tag him in Instagram posts.

Leona Lewis Reveals How Designer Michael Costello Humiliated Her at 2014 Charity Event

Leona Lewis is speaking out to share the humiliating experience she had in 2014 while working with fashion designer Michael Costello.

The “Bleeding Love” singer spoke out one day after Michael accused Chrissy Teigen of bullying him and trying to blacklist him from the fashion community.

Leona revealed that Michael was supposed to dress her to walk in a charity fashion show and that when she arrived for the fitting, he refused to alter the dress to fit her. The night before the fashion show, he abandoned his commitment to dress her and she had to sit in the audience during the event while all the other celebs walked the runway.

Leona expressed how she’s sorry to see what Michael went through and she’s not trying to discount his experience, but she doesn’t believe we should knock people down when they’re showing remorse for their actions.

“We all make mistakes, I know I have, but at this time I feel that when people apologize (Chrissy) and show sincere remorse and rehabilitation for their actions, we should embrace them and not try and kick them when they’re down,” Leona said.

Leona Lewis Recounts Racist Confrontation With White Shop Owner in London

Leona Lewis is recalling a particular distributing confrontation she once had with a white shop owner in London.

The 35-year-old singer opened up to fans about the moment, in light of the Black Lives Matter movement, revealing that the owner quickly started to hover over her and her father while they were browsing around the store.

“Eventually, she [the shop owner] came up to my dad and I and said, ‘You need to put that stuff down, you’re not allowed to touch it.’ Every other person was picking stuff up, looking at it. I immediately knew what was happening and I asked her, ‘Why? Everyone else is picking stuff up. Why do we have to put stuff down? We’re just looking at it, I’m probably going to buy it.’”

Leona continues, saying that their encounter became so confrontational that the owner threatened to call police and that other customers left the shop because it was so uncomfortable.

“It sparked a rage in me. I started saying, ‘No,I’m not going to put it down, I’m going to buy it. Why are you targeting us?’ [By now it was just] me, this woman, and my dad in the store. And she became really defensive, really agitated, and ran behind the counter. She said she was going to call the police on us if we didn’t leave the store now.’
