Nicole Scherzinger has dropped the biggest hint yet that there’s a reunion on the cards for her and Lewis Hamilton, admitting she’d love to get back with him in her most candid interview since their split.
They ended their five year on-off romance in July this year and apart form a late-night hotel meet-up, have kept a safe distance.
But in true Lewis/Nicole fashion, it seems they could be back on again in no time as Nicole admitted that while they’re ‘just friends’, she wouldn’t rule anything out.
The exciting news came when Nicole, 35, was directly asked if there’s hope for them yet. She replied: ‘I hope so. I would love that.
‘For now, we are just friends. But whatever the future holds, I don’t rule anything out. I also don’t have any regrets. For now, we are just friends.’
In October Lewis, 28, was caught in the car park of a hotel Nicole was checked into after his car broke down, giving the first real glimpse of hope for the couple.
But Nicole says they just met to talk, adding to The Sun: ‘You actually make us way more exciting than what we are.’
Although the X Factor judge is keen to return to her lover – who was believed to be on the verge of proposing just before they announced their shock split – she says she is glad she got to indulge in ‘me time’ and reveals it was her religion that got her through the break-up.
And another sure sign that there is still a spark between Lewis and Nicole is the fact she has remained on the singles market since their split.
‘I’ve not been dating,’ she added. ‘That’s not where my head’s been at. At all. You have to be happy with yourself before you’re happy with anyone else.’
The ‘X Factor’ judge and the Formula 1 driver called time on their five-year on/off relationship last month as work commitments meant they barely got to spend time together, but the pair have plans to talk things through as they have some free time and Lewis has shown he wants her back.
An ‘X Factor’ crew member told the Daily Star newspaper: ”Lewis isn’t racing for almost a month and Nicole has some time off from the show so she’s decided to fly out to see him.
“They’ve been talking on the phone constantly, and he’s made it clear he wants her back.”
The ‘Boomerang’ hitmaker was ”touched” by Lewis’ tribute to her on Sunday (28.07.13) after he dedicated his win in the Hungarian Grand Prix at Mogyoród to the singer but despite his obvious feelings she is still reluctant to jump back into a relationship.
The source added: “When he dedicated his Hungarian Grand Prix win to her on Sunday, she was genuinely touched”.
“Nicole doesn’t know if she’s ready for a reconciliation at the moment, but she definitely wants to see him face to face to talk things through.”
A sensational drive from Lewis Hamilton in the searing heat of Hungary, one he described as among “the most important” of his career, handed the 2008 world champion his first win for Mercedes and at the same time reignited his title bid.
Dedicating the victory to his ex-girlfriend, the American popstar Nicole Scherzinger, a visibly emotional Hamilton said the experience would act like a “Band Aid” for his broken heart as he headed into the summer break.
“I was going all out. I needed to get past those people, usually I get stuck. Today I wasn’t having it, I was going for every move I had”.
“It has not been the easiest few months,” Hamilton said afterwards. “It feels a little bit odd without that someone here – but I would say now that this is one of those races you want to dedicate to that someone”.
The Formula 1 star gave an interview to Sky Sports ahead of his big race yesterday in Nurburgring but admitted his head isn’t really in the right place at the moment, following the end of his five year relationship with X Factor’s Nicole.
The couple announced their separation last week, amid rumours that their hectic work schedules were keeping them apart.
When the interviewer today commented on Lewis seeming “grumpy” during prep for the Grand Prix, Lewis was quick to reveal the reason for his blue mood.
“You have different people who are able to keep in their emotions – I have a Finnish trainer, for example, who doesn’t show any emotion and they are always able to control it. Me, I wear my heart on my sleeve and that gets me in trouble a lot of the time and I generally find it very, very hard to fight my emotions”, he revealed.
“I’m going through…I’m trying my hardest to be positive but I’m going through a really, really tough time at the moment with the loss of someone really, really special in my life. My world’s turned upside down, but I have a job…”
The interviewer asked Lewis if he was referring to Nicole and uncharacteristically the privacy loving star admitted that he was indeed talking about his now ex:
“Yup…but I have a job to motivate my team and if I come in with my head down and negative energy then that goes around to all my mechanics who work day and night, and I don’t ever want that. So I’m really trying to pull myself together and keep my head up but it’s so hard to do.”
The Singer was recently reported to have broken up with the Formula 1 driver after five years, due to their busy work schedules.
Scherzinger opened up after an X Factor hopeful sang a break-up song at an audition in Cardiff on Wednesday (July 3), according to The Sun.
She apparently told the contestant: “It pulled on my heartstrings.”
Speaking about feeling lonely at the end of a relationship, she added: “It sucks doesn’t it? Really sucks.”
“Even though Nicole is going through a tough time, she was determined to get on with things,” an insider said. “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.”
Scherzinger first started dating Hamilton in late 2007, after meeting him at the MTV Awards.
They split for four months in early 2010, while they denied rumours they had got engaged in summer 2011.
The pair briefly split later in the same year, before ultimately getting back together.
