Leona Lewis is ignoring negative comments about her new curves as she is "happier than ever" in her skin.
The British songstress has been showing off a more voluptuous frame of late, which has drawn cruel criticism from users on social networking sites.
However, the stunning star is said to be ignoring the jibes as she couldn't be more content with boyfriend Dennis Jauch.
"He loves Leona's curves. She's gone up to a size 14, which is her natural size. She's feeling really confident because Dennis constantly tells her he loves her body as it is now. She doesn't care what anybody else says because she's happier than ever," a source told British magazine Heat.
"Part of the reason she and Dennis are so close is that he tells her to just do what feels natural. He keeps Leona grounded and reminds her that she doesn't have to be super-skinny to get ahead in the business, as she has an amazing talent."
27-year-old Leona has always had a refreshing attitude to her weight. The former winner of UK's The X Factor has previously revealed she won't starve herself to fit a stereotype.
"There is a tremendous amount of pressure in this industry to be a stick insect, but it's not an issue that concerns me," she has said in the past.
"But no one has ever told me to lose weight, and they wouldn't dare either."
