Nicole Scherzinger: Lewis And I Are Not Together
Talent show judge dismisses Hamilton's attempts to win her back...
The F1 champ has made several emotional gestures – leading some to speculate there might be a reunion on the cards – but the former Pussycat Doll has set the record straight.
Speaking to The Sun, Nicole said that there would be no reunion.
“The truth is we’re no longer together. It is over," she told the paper.
“I know he’s been very public about trying to get me back, but we’re still not together.”
The couple ended their five-year relationship in June, with Lewis tweeting an emotional plea, saying: “If you’ve found that special someone, don’t EVER let them go no matter what!! Nothing in this world is more important.”
The F1 champ later dedicated his Hungarian Grand Prix win to her.
Nicole, who often travelled around the world to support Lewis during race events, described the gesture as "sweet of him."
"I don’t like to take credit for things. I like to stay in the background but it’s nice to be acknowledged and to know that someone realises the support that they had.”
But she added: “I don’t know what the future holds to be honest, but as it stands we’re not together.”
Despite feeling lonely after the break up, the talent show judge remains optimistic for the future and is looking forward to this year's new series, even if it means putting her music career on hold.
She said: “I’m having a blast this year. I love it when I get on that stage and I’m doing stuff.
“You can’t do anything halfway. I definitely think the show takes away from my music. People saw the work I put in last year. I worked with my acts seven days a week, so obviously my career is going to take a back seat. But we won, so the work spoke for itself.”
Nicole is mentoring the girls group in this series.
