British singer Leona Lewis is reportedly set to get married this weekend.
The 34-year-old has been in a relationship with choreographer Dennis Jauch for nine years, and after confirming her engagement in November last year, she’s finally set to embark on the next chapter of her life, as she and Dennis are reportedly planning to marry over the weekend in Italy.
A source close to the star told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “Leona is madly in love with Dennis and they are both so excited to get hitched this weekend. They have flown their nearest and dearest out to Italy for the ceremony and no expense has been spared.”
“She has spent months and months making sure everything is perfect for the big day and they have loads of pals coming from the UK as well as the US. Because they live in the States, their friends and family don’t all get to meet up much, so it’s going to be a really special day.”
The ‘Better In Time’ singer took to social media to confirm her engagement, admitting at the time she “can’t believe” she’s about to be someone’s “wife”, though she’s looking forward to a “new adventure”.
They got engaged toward the end of last year, and in December, Leona marked the end of her single days by organising a hen party which saw her take 12 of her girlfriends to a performance of ‘Briefs: Close Encounters’ at Spiegeltent in London’s Leicester Square.
At the time, sources said the singer had a “great time” at the event, with many of her friends left “squealing” as the men stripped down to their “tiny pants”.
Leona who shot to fame in 2006 when she won UK talent show ‘The X Factor’ met Dennis in 2010 when he was working as her back-up dancer.
