Scherzinger opens up about split?
Nicole Scherzinger has given an insight into her split from Lewis Hamilton, confessing that breaking up "sucks".
The former Pussycat Doll and the Formula 1 racing driver recently confirmed that they have parted company after dating for around five years.
And The Sun reported that Nicole addressed break-ups during the latest round of X Factor auditions, when one of the contestants performed a self-penned song about the end of a relationship.
Empathising with the song's lyrics about feeling alone when a romance ends, Nicole apparently said: "It sucks doesn't it? Really sucks."
She went on: "It pulled on my heartstrings."
A source said: "Even though Nicole is going through a tough time she was determined to get on with things. Throughout the day she was showered with presents from contestants after celebrating her 35th birthday during the week. She really appreciated that and she even impressed her fellow judges by doing the splits during a break in auditions."
A spokeswoman for Nicole confirmed earlier this week that she and Lewis had split but would not comment further. However, it is rumoured that the couple's work schedules got in the way of their romance.
