Bleeding Love singer Leona Lewis has followed in the footsteps of fellow X-Factor stars Rebecca Ferguson, Alexandra Burke and Stacey Solomon, by leaving Modest! Management.

The 27-year-old singer has decided to amicably split from the company and start a new ''chapter'' in her life.

In an official statement, Lewis said: ''I greatly enjoyed my time working with Modest! They played an important role in my career and I'll always be grateful. I'm looking forward to a new chapter in my career.''

A representative for the company added: ''We were very proud to have Leona on the Modest! roster and of everything she has achieved. We wish her the best.''
