Nicole Scherzinger has denied rumors flying around in the US and UK press that she has become engaged to Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton. That’s despite the news of the engagement allegedly coming directly from her father!
Were you getting excited at the sound of wedding bells in the air for X Factor US presenter Nicole Scherzinger and Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton? Well, sorry to disappoint you but it seems Nicole’s father was somehow a little premature in announcing that news.
The X Factor USA judge’s father Alfonso Valiente was quoted in the British newspaper Mail on Sunday as saying: “You know about the proposal? Yes, they are engaged. My future son-in-law is a really nice guy, really down-to-earth. My family all like him.”
However, Scherzinger has now denied the reports, tweeting: “Lewis and I woke up this morning and read we were engaged! Sorry to disappoint u all but its not true ”
Nicole Scherzinger, a former Pussycat Doll, has been dating Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton for three years, although the couple briefly separated in 2010.
Scherzinger is currently preparing for the television premiere of The X Factor USA on September 21.
Hamilton, winner of the Formula 1 world championship in 2008, is currently in fourth place in the world drivers’ championship with 109 points. He also makes a voice cameo appearance in Disney Pixar’s Cars 2, which premiers in the UK this Friday.
That wouldn’t leave either Nicole or Lewis much time to organize a wedding anyway, would it?
