Leona Lewis: Priced Out of the Hood

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

The Brit pop star beauty was duped out of buying a house in her native town of London recently:

“She recently made an offer of around $1m on a house in Hackney with her boyfriend, but when the vendor found out who she was they upped the price by $200,000, forcing the couple to pull out. A source said: ‘It was quite upsetting. They had their heart set on a property and offered the asking price. But the seller thought she was a pop star and could afford more, so he upped the price. It’s cruel.’

Leona’s dad has previously revealed that despite the success of her album, Spirit, which was the fastest-selling UK debut of all time, the pop princess is no millionaire. He said: ‘It’s a myth Leona is a millionaire. She earns enough to live on, but that’s it.’

Leona’s stacks are on modest for now, unlike Mary J. SMH at the shady owner for pricing a girl out of her own neighborhood.

    And she wasn’t duped. Duped means tricked or swindled. Neither applies to this situation.

    Reference Roget’s then post.

    Thanks in advance.

  • MS. NYTX

    no no…that looks like her hair..im eyein’ the roots…

  • Ashley Seales

    @MS. NYTX

    Yeah I think you might be right it looks a little horsehairish if you know what I mean. That’s kinda why I was thinkin that.

  • Blacksmith

    That’s her hair. It’s looking a little frizzy…been there, done that. Her natural curl pattern is a little tighter and they probably just blew it out to soften the curl.

    She was on Oprah a few weeks back, she seems very humble and grounded. Hope she does well.

  • Kitty Katt

    She looks like my sister.

  • Don't mind me

    It is her hair and they are her eyes and she is a much better dinger then the rest and she is humble. Hopefully she wont be destroyed in this industry like all the rest



    She’s bi-racial.. White- British MaMa… Black Daddy from Guyana.

    I think she’s gorgeous…

  • asew

    @ Ashley Seales, that is not a weave, it is her hair and not store bought.

  • Southern Belle 225

    Her hair looks real to me. Anyway, she’ll be aight.

  • honeybell

    yeah she is beautiful….ok lemme stop..next subject..!!

  • $moK.E.Y.

    Thats her REAL hair!

    She is half white and guyanese, google her name and you will see.

    NO LACE FRONTS and she can SANG so she dont got to dance.


  • $moK.E.Y.

    hope she remains humble and not tainted by the industry,

    I love her voice! (a cross between mariah and whitney)

  • BeYaki is a skank ho

    Go Leona- and it is her hair- saw her on the UK Idol version!

  • Misty Knight&my friend Sandra Rose


    didnt Tina Turner dance?

  • Barelythere986

    @ Smokey

    I was thinkin the exact same thing. Shes got the vocal cords of Whitney with the musical range or Mariah. I love her voice..its a nice change from all this S***t the record companies keep trying to shove down our throat…

  • Misty Knight&my friend Sandra Rose

    I dont know about her hair color, I think it looks better darker, but it seems as if she or “they” lightened it soon as she came stateside. I think she does have a great voice, but honestly they need to come with better production for this girl, I dont think alot of people are gonna buy the whole “Tommy Matolla, Mariah-like era” thing they have going for her, I mean its almost like easy listening music right now,. Im more into Estelle, to me shes the more compelling UK import even though Leona has a better voice

  • Tracey

    She needs to drop her UGLY boyfriend and hook up with Lewis Hamilton…seriously that would be my ultimate couple!

    Sametype of background she and LL has, dad worked very long and hard to support their talents!

    She once done a song years back with Ludicrous…think it was entilted ‘nothing but a party’
