2016 has been a good year if you’re a member of Little Mix. They’ve been constantly slaying their performances, ‘Glory Days’ IS amazing and they’ve proved they’re the sassiest ladies ever. They’ve worked their butts off this year and we imagine they’re probably really looking forward to a relaxing Christmas holidays.
However, we heard some news today that really wasn’t very Christmassy… We didn’t believe our eyes when we read it!
Last night, Leigh-Anne was out at a restaurant with a friend and was SLAPPED by a ‘fan’. What?!
Apparently, a man came into the restaurant, started shouting abuse at Leigh-Anne before leaning across the table and slapping her. Someone did call the police, but unfortunately the man had got away before they turned up. The Met Police released a statement: “Police were called on Monday, 28 November at around 04:50 hours by a woman who stated that a man had threatened to assault her and had assaulted another woman she was with. The suspect made off prior to police arrival. Officers conducted a search of the area and did not locate the suspect.” We hope they catch him!
Unsurprisingly, Mixers were out in full force today, showing their support with the hashtag ‘#weloveyouleigh’.

Even if you aren’t a fan of Little Mix (how?), you can’t go around slapping people… Who does that?! We just hope she’s not too shaken and her nasty bruise (as pictured in the tweet above, taken from her snapchat story) heals quickly. The other Little Mix ladies are probably looking after her right now.
Can you believe this happened to Leigh? What would you say to her if you had the chance? Let us know in the comments below!
