Singer Leona Lewis has known her boyfriend of five years, Lou Al-Chamaa, since she was just 10 years old, but she admits their romance has experienced rocky patches thanks to her newfound international success. She said: “Well, we’re currently happy and together. It’s difficult sometimes, I won’t deny that, but we make it work. I’ve been through it -- not all relationships are perfect.”

The "Happy" star also admitted she is unsure about her long-term future with the electrician and has no plans to marry him as yet. She added: “I don’t see us getting married for a long time yet -- you really need to be certain with someone before you get married and, besides, my parents only married about four or five years ago so I just don’t believe you have to get married to be happy together.”

The British beauty also said she doesn’t care if people call her boring. She added to Company magazine: “I still mess around when I’m with friends. But I haven’t got a lot of time and we’ve got so much to do, so my focus is for everything to look good. It’s irrelevant to me if people say I’m boring. They don’t know me as a person or what I’m like when I’m hanging out with my friends.”
