Leo Ieiri (家入レオ Ieiri Reo?, born December 13, 1994 in Fukuoka Prefecture) is a Japanese singer-songwriter. Her song "Sabrina" was used as the third ending song of the anime television series Toriko.

Her stage name comes from the movie Léon: The Professional, and also comes from Leo of Kimba the White Lion because her eyes resemble a lion.[1]
