Nicole Scherzinger Talks Lewis Hamilton Split: “It Sucks”

Nicole Scherzinger has been doing a pretty sch-amazing job of looking a-okay following her shock split from her Formula One boyfriend-of-six-years, Lewis Hamilton, but the X Factor judge has now revealed her true feelings on the break-up, admitting “it sucks”.

Despite appearing in good spirits at the show’s Cardiff auditions earlier this week, The Sun reports that 35-year-old Nicole revealed to an aspiring sonsgtress contestant (after she auditioned with a song about breaking up) that inside, she’s hurting.

“It pulled on my heartstrings”, Nicole reportedly said to the auditonee. “It sucks doesn’t it? Really sucks. It’s so depressing but it’s so good. I would buy your album.” Aw.

The former Pussycat Doll announced that her and Lewis had called time on their relationship – blaming conflicting work commitments – via her rep, who issued a statement confirming the news earlier this week. “I can confirm that Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton have split up”, it said.

But the ever-professional singer seems to be determined not to let the split get in the way of her busy X Factor work schedule. “Even though Nicole is going through a tough time she was determined to get on with things”, an insider revealed.

We’re full of admiration for lady Scherzinger. If that was us, we’d be weeping into our Downton Abbey boxset, living off tea and Monster Munch and forgetting to wash our hair for weeks. Bravo.
