London, July 21 (ANI): Nicole Scherzinger showed the strain of her relationship with Lewis Hamilton for the first time, as she broke down in tears at the ‘X Factor’ bootcamp.
When a female contestant sang Cher’s ‘Believe,’ the former Pussycat Doll started crying with filming having to be stopped for several minutes as she composed herself.
It comes amid reports that the relationship of the 34-year-old singer and the F1 racer are on the rocks, after he had taken several girls back to his hotel room to party.
The lyrics of the hit song proved particularly poignant for Scherzinger.
The lyrics include the lines: “There’s no turning back/I need time to move on/I need love to feel strong/Cause I’ve had time to think it through/And maybe I’m too good for you.”
According to friends, Scherzinger accepted that nothing went on between the McLaren Mercedes driver and the girls but launched into a tirade when she spoke to him on the phone.
But as the ‘Right There’ hitmaker watched the contestant perform the song on stage at the Liverpool Echo Arena, she couldn’t hold back her feelings.
“Three make-up artists rushed on to the stage to sort her out as all her make-up had run,” the Mirror quoted an onlooker as saying.
“She was clearly very upset and it’s little wonder as it’s been a torrid few days for her. But she’s a true pro and just got on with things.
“But it’s clear things are very testing for her at the moment,” the source added. (ANI)
