Nicole Scherzy: 'Lewis Heartache Has Been Liberating'
X Factor judge opens up about her split from the F1 ace...
Despite previously hinting that a reunion could be on the cards, Scherzy has now told The Sun's Fabulous magazine that she found their break-up "liberating".
The X Factor judge explained: "Through the heartache it's been liberating. People lose themselves to relationships.
"You're living for the other person, putting so much in that you have to take a step back. Do things for yourself."
Nicole went on to add that she still hopes to start a family in the near future, stating: "I definitely want kids - but not for a few years. My kids are going to be raised by me, the way my mum raised me.
"So I need to get my stuff out - albums, world tours, movies - and then try to do that."
The ex-Pussycat Dolls star concluded: "For now, we are just friends. But whatever the future holds, I don't rule anything out. I also don't have any regrets. For now, we are just friends."
