Leona Vs Horse

X Factor star Leona Lewis has been forced to delay the recording of her forthcoming album after she was reportedly headbutted by a crazed horse.

Leona was riding the animal when it suddenly bolted, rammed its head into her face and threw her to the ground, leaving the singer with a split lip.

A source told a paper: “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 okay, she was holding her face in agony.

“Thankfully she didn’t need any surgery, but she was told to stay at home and rest just in case she passed out with concussion. She doesn’t blame the horse though – it was just one of those things.

“She had been due in the studio to record, but she felt shaken up so they had to cancel. It has pushed everything back, but she’s such a grafter she’ll easily make up for lost time.”

Get well soon Leona!
