Leona Lewis Leaves Sony

Leona Lewis, winner of the 2006 edition of X Factor, has parted ways with Sony and even sent her mentor Simon Cowell a text to let him know.
Why did she text as opposed to making a phone call? Well, because she didn't want him to try and talk her out of it.
"I was nervous about telling Simon. In fact, I texted him first because I was too nervous to call him. I'm not going to say exactly what Simon said, but he was definitely a little disappointed I chose to leave. It was too late for him to persuade me though. I had already made up my mind," she said.
Lewis said that she is not bitter and will still include Cowell in her professional life, saying, "Simon is genuinely supportive and will always be instrumental in my career. I will still ask his advice."
Lewis exploded with the 2007 hit "Bleeding Love" after her big X Factor win in the U.K. But that was about it.
