British singer Leona Lewis struggles to maintain her relationship with boyfriend LOU AL-CHAMAA - because she is so busy working.
The Bleeding Love hitmaker and Al-Chamaa live together in London, but Lewis has based herself in the U.S. to work on her forthcoming album Happy.
The couple keeps in touch with regular phone calls and chats on video conferencing service Skype - but the star admits she finds it hard to be apart from her beau.
Lewis tells Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, "Obviously, a long-distance relationship is hard. But, like anything worth having, you make it work.
"You just have to keep the communication open - we Skype, we chat, we email. And he comes out when he can."
