Nicole is reportedly 'completely devastated' after she and her British racer boyfriend ended their relationship after five years of dating.
Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton apparently are no longer together. A spokesperson for Nicole told Daily Mail that the "The X Factor" judge and her boyfriend decided to go separate ways. "Nicole is just so heartbroken and completely devastated," a source said.
The couple reportedly ended their romantic relationship because of work commitments. A source told The Sun, "It's so hard to keep up a relationship when they're barely in the same country as each other. Both have supported each other in their careers and will continue to do so. But the nature of their work ultimately cost their relationship."
Recently, the Formula One racing driver hinted at a possible marriage proposal. "We've been together for five years, which is quite a milestone, really. But hopefully in the near future. Maybe before we get to six years," he said.
Nicole had been accompanying Lewis during races, but she admitted that she only had eyes on her boyfriend. "I only go to a Grand Prix to support Lewis. I am in awe of Formula One because there is so much money, technology and talent, but as for the racing, it really is like trying to understand rocket science when I'm there, trackside. For me there's only ever one winner and a lot of people would agree with me on that - Lewis is the best," she said.
The former member of The Pussycat Dolls and the British racer met at the European Music Awards in Munich in November 2007 and made their debut as a couple at the Monaco Grand Prix six months later. The pair split briefly in 2010 and 2011, but at that time they successfully rekindled their romance.
