Lewis axed Harrods event over fur
Saturday, 11 October 2008

X Factor winner Leona Lewis pulled out of opening the Harrods winter sale last year because of her vegetarian beliefs, it has emerged, reports BBC.

The 23-year-old, who is firmly against animal cruelty, cancelled her public appearance at the department store in London because it stocked animal fur.
Harrods said it was told she cancelled "due to a scheduling clash".
Lewis, who scored a huge hit with Bleeding Love, was recently voted the UK's sexiest vegetarian.
"I'm totally against animal cruelty," she said at the time. "I don't have clothes, shoes or bags made from any animal products."
Various reports have suggested Lewis had been offered £1 million to attend the event.
A Harrods spokesman refused to reveal how much she was offered as this was "confidential", but he added: "It was at least a tenth of what has been reported."
