Complainant Name:
Mr Lou Al-Chamaa

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Lou Al-Chamaa complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article was inaccurate and misleading when it claimed that he had demanded a seven-figure pay-off from his former girlfriend, Leona Lewis, following their split.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following text, in addition to the removal of the original article from the newspaper's website:

WE have been asked to make clear Lou Al-Chamaa, singer Leona Lewis's ex-boyfriend, did not demand a seven-figure payoff from the singer as we reported on July 9. We are happy to set the record straight.
