Leona Lewis has saved a rabbit from becoming a homeless man’s dinner and gave him $100 to buy other food.
While shopping in Los Angeles, the British singer spotted someone walking a white rabbit on a leash and asked what he was going to do with the critter. His reply? “Don’t know, probably eat it.” She promptly offered him the cash and is now the proud owner of Melrose, named after the street where he was rescued, and he will hopefully live a long life in her garden.
Leona is a vegetarian and an avid animal rights supporter. Last year she turned down a $2 million offer from exclusive London store Harrods to open its summer sale because the store sold fur. She is currently living in LA to record her second album.
