Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton split

Former Pussycat Doll and West End star Nicole Scherzinger has confirmed she and Lewis Hamilton have broken up.

The couple have been together since 2007 and have split several times since then but said ending it this time was a mutual decision.

Scherzinger, who is starring in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats, told The Sun: “I’m devastated that it didn’t work out. It was the hardest decision we had to make, but we made it together.”

The singer, 36, is reported to called time on the relationship with the 30-year-old Formula 1 driver because he would not commit to marriage.

She insisted the pair still loved each other, telling the newspaper: “We wish nothing but happiness and the very best for one another.”

Hamilton, who was recently named Sports Personality of the Year, won his second Formula 1 title in November.
