Kings of Leon has blasted the rumor suggesting that the band will collaborate with the "Bleeding Love" star, tweeting that they 'are not writing or recording with Leona Lewis.'
Chart-topping rockers Kings of Leon have dismissed reports they're lining up an odd collaboration with British pop star Leona Lewis. Recent British tabloid reports suggested the band had persuaded the Bleeding Love singer to join them in the studio - because they're "huge fans".
The story took off and became a big gossip item overnight, prompting Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill to log onto his Twitter.com to deny the claims. Followill, who is enjoying a break after a long tour with the band, writes, "Contrary to reports out there Kings Of Leon are not writing or recording with Leona Lewis. No offense to her."
Although Kings of Leon have denied the rumor, Robbie Williams who is also reported to collaborate with Leona Lewis hasn't given any conformation about the claim. A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "She loves Robbie and thinks he's a real laugh - and the love-in is mutual. They're just going to go in the studio and see what comes out."
