Terrified Leona Lewis has been caught up in a terrifying siege in Los Angeles.
The 24-year-old star was horrified as thugs waving handguns ran towards her car as they attempted to flee police following a high-speed chase.
Miss Lewis’s security intervened before the men ran off, but not before her manager Nicola Carson was thrown to the ground.
The singer had been on her way to LA international airport when she stopped at a Starbucks coffee house to pick up some drinks.
The timing was unfortunate, however, as just then the police chase came careering into the car park outside, where Miss Lewis was waiting.
