American recording artist/actress Nicole Scherzinger is reportedly upset that former boyfriend, Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton is dating Barbadian singer/actress Rihanna.
Hamilton was spotted on the same float as the B***h Better Have My Money hitmaker during the Kadooment Day Parade in Barbados, adding to speculation that the two are secretly dating.
Scherzinger and Hamilton started dating in 2007, and have been in a on-again off-again relationship. It was previously reported that the former X Factor judge was tired of Hamilton's refusal to commit. During an interview with the Daily Telegraph, the 37-year-old Baby Love singer admitted that her busy career has taken a toll on her relationships with loved ones."I try not to regret things, because I feel like as long as you put positive energy towards something – and you put your whole self, your true self, towards it – it'll lead you to the next place you're supposed to be," she said."I look at this as a great blessing for me to be able to take on this role... The 25-year-old British racing driver and US pop star, 31, said they wanted to concentrate on their careers.A joint statement from their spokesmen confirmed: ''Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton can confirm that they have decided to go their separate ways.
''The two of them have decided to focus fully on their careers and will remain close friends.'' The pair started dating after meeting at the MTV Europe Awards in Munich in November 2007.
Former world Formula 1 champion Hamilton said he was like a ''besotted schoolboy'', while Scherzinger, who accompanied Hamilton to Grand Prix around the globe, called him her ''soulmate''.
Reports last month said the high-profile pair were close to separating because of the racing driver's reluctance to settle down.
Hamilton, who previously dated beauty queen Vivian Burkhardt, is hoping to win back his F1 title this year but faces competition from current world champion Jenson Button as his Mc Laren teammate and Michael Schumacher, who is out of retirement.
