Holy crap! Wow. I can’t believe this...wait, who is Lewis Hamilton?
X-Factor’s Nicole Scherzinger and her 26 year-old racecar driver boyfriend have reportedly broken up after dating for four years. “Unworkable schedules" are reportedly the cause.
Four years is a long time. I find it hard to believe that up until now, they’ve had the exact same schedule. After investing that much time in a relationship, you don’t just say:
“I’m not available on Wednesdays anymore."
“Oooh. Sorry, babe. That’s a deal breaker.”
Also, they kind of broke up for the same reason a year ago. Back in January of 2010, Nicole and Lewis reportedly split “to focus fully on their careers.” Obviously, that didn’t last long.
Now, almost two years later, a source tells the Daily Mirror: “Nicole and Lewis are both extremely busy people who lead incredibly hectic lives. Of late, their schedules have proven pretty unworkable and they have not been able to see as much of one another as they would have liked.”
Hamilton travels the world with the McLaren Formula 1 team, and of course Nicole is knee-deep in X-Factor hoopla.
"They still speak on the phone but this isn’t the same as face-to-face contact and things have been rough for the past six weeks," The source continues. "Both want it to work but it’s fair to say things are rocky.”
But good news. These two crazy kids might work it out after all.
“They have rowed before and worked things out,” the source continues. “As far as both are concerned, there is still hope.”
In July, there were rumors that the two were engaged. Hollyscoop asked Nicole if marriage was on her mind, and Scherzinger told us:
“I’m very happy where I am in my relationship right now, I’m grateful and I’m grateful for my work to be able to have my album coming.”
Whether or not they were on the road to marriage, who knows. But Hamilton recently said he wouldn’t have a baby with her because it might turn him into a less than “risky” Formula 1 driver.
“I'm still young and I'm not in that position yet,” Hamilton said. "I think being slightly more risky in some ways is what separates the faster drivers from maybe the not-so-faster drivers."
