Is somebody out to get Leona Lewis?
Just last year, the 25-year-old British "Bleeding Love" singer suffered facial injuries after being headbutted by her horse. Then she was punched in the face by a male fan at her October book signing.
Then last Friday, Lewis plummeted down an elevator shaft while performing in Sheffield, England.
Outrageous as it sounds, a rep at Lewis's J Records label confirms that the incident did indeed occur during the first night of the star's UK tour. Lewis later told The Sun newspaper, "We have been having problems with the lift. It had been going fine in rehearsals and then I had a bit of an accident and fell down the lift shaft."
The problem was that the elevator had gotten stuck, causing the "X-Factor" winner to tumble into an empty hole. "I was lucky not to get injured," Lewis told The Sun. "Fortunately it happened during a blackout on set and didn't affect the show and none of the audience saw anything."
Perhaps she better start keeping an eye out for ACME anvils falling from the sky.
