Peter Kowalczyk hit the singer in the face on Wednesday at a London book signing.
Yesterday he was charged with assault and sectioned under the Mental Health Act after previously being arrested.
According to The Sun 29 year old Kowalczyk had previously auditioned on the X Factor - the show which Leona won - and been turned down.
A spokesperson for Lewis said yesterday: “Leona is absolutely gutted that she did not get the signings finished. This guy whacked her one in the face, and she was sitting down and he was standing up, so you couldn't get more cowardly.”
She has since cancelled a promotional tour to Germany and UK TV appearances.
