Complainant Name:
Mr Lou Al-Chamaa

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


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.


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.
