Nicole Scherzinger really is having a tough time lately, isn’t she? She has incurred the wrath of Simon Cowell, reduced teen girls to floods of tears and received death threats for her voting off of popular contestants on The X Factor USA. Now it has emerged that she was also held at gunpoint during a recent trip to Mexico.
Things looked bad for X Factor USA judge Nicole Scherzinger lately as she suffered a backlash from fans after being instrumental in voting off teen singers Drew and Rachel two weeks in succession. She was undoubtedly upset by the reaction she caused and sorry for the acts that were eliminated. However, that must seem like child’s play compared to what happened to her a little while previously.
While traveling to the set of her music video shoot for Try with Me, The X Factor judge was held up at gunpoint by a local gang, according to a report in the latest edition of Star Magazine.
The frightening incident happened while she was being driven through the mountains, notorious for drugs, in a bulletproof SUV. Nicole and X Factor choreographer Brian Friedman were pulled over by mysterious gunmen with M16s and Berettas.
Eventually, of course, as we all know, the group was released, shaken up but unharmed.
Brian Friedman called it “the craziest adventure ever!”
