Veteran British pop star Leo Sayer has been dumped by his fiancee RISA TAKAYA, who pulled out of wedding plans just months after accepting his proposal.
The singer met the air hostess - who, at 24, is 34 years his junior - at a promotional event in Tokyo and he announced their engagement in April (07).
His former girlfriend Donatella Piccinetti reveals the singer is heartbroken by the split, and blames distance for the break-up.
She says, "Leo is absolutely devastated. It has been a roller-coaster year. I think the distance between them was no good. I am trying to look after him.
"These things happen and life goes on but I feel very sorry for Leo."
