Leona Lewis Goes On Zoo Date
Leona Lewis went on a date with a mystery man at a zoo in Germany.
The 'Bleeding Love' singer - who split from her boyfriend of 10 years Lou Al-Chamaa last month - was spotted feeding the world's largest rodent, a capybara, during a romantic day out with the dark-haired hunk at the Tierpark Hagenbeck zoo in Stellingen.
A source said: "Leona and her new friend looked like they were having a great time at the zoo. They seemed very relaxed together and couldn't stop smiling as they wondered around looking at different animals - the perfect date for an animal lover like Leona."
The pop star looked keen to impress the muscular hunk, as she wore a navy summer dress, wedge heels and aviator sunglasses.
Leona - who rose to fame after winning Simon Cowell's pop star search show 'The X Factor' - is known for her love of animals and has thrown herself into charity work to help her get over her split from Lou.
Two weeks ago the beauty distracted herself with a weekend away at a bear sanctuary in Romania on behalf of the World Society for the Protection of Animals after finishing her first UK tour dates.
She tweeted: "Heading back after my trip to the bear sanctuary! Its sooo amazing, the bears are magnificent. After a life of abuse they r finally happy! X (sic)."
However, Leona's mystery date is not the only thing keeping her mind off her heartache at the moment.
The 25-year-old star is reportedly scrapping plans to tour Australia, Europe and Asia, instead choosing to head back into the recording studio instead to write new material about her split.
