Scherzinger ‘came close to proposal’

Nicole Scherzinger

Nicole Scherzinger’s ex-boyfriend was planning to propose on a yacht just before they split.

The singer enjoyed an on/off relationship with Formula One star Lewis Hamilton from 2008 until they separated earlier this year. Just before they parted ways the racing driver had hinted he was ready to pop the question and it’s now claimed he had it all mapped out.

“They seemed on the verge of getting engaged just before they split. He was going to propose to her – he’d picked the ring, hired a yacht, spoken to her mum – so this breakup was devastating,” an insider told British magazine Heat.

Nicole has been open about how hard she found the change in her love life. She even cried when a group sang a love song while auditioning for the UK X Factor, which she is a judge on.

The 35-year-old star apparently knows she should be moving on, but is finding it hard as she’s still speaking to Lewis. He was even seen leaving her hotel seven hours after meeting up with her recently.

“She’s trying her best to appear strong, but the truth is the breakup has been tough. Lewis has been in touch again and that is really giving her a lot of mixed emotions. She has asked him for a clean break but they’ve spoken. Even talking to him makes her feel very emotional,” the source said.
