Michael Costello has reacted to Leona Lewis” claim about her 2014 experience which left her with insecurities for years.
Lewis had claimed that she was unable to walk a fashion show for charity because Costello refused to alter the dress he made to suit her body type and also did not show up on the day of the event. This she alleged left her humiliated.
Costello took to his Instagram story to speak on the situation and shared receipts from interactions with Leona Lewis and her team over the years.
In a statement he released alongside, he apologised if she felt humiliated by their encounter and noted that something must have been lost in translation with the organisers of the show, reason why he didn’t show up
To buttress his argument, Costello shared screenshots of requests for Leona’s team over the years, requesting that he pull custom looks for her, the most recent being in May of this year for a performance on American Idols.
He also shared clips bad screenshots from their 2014 interaction where Leone Lewis wore the dress he made her and admitted to loving it
