The Welsh presenter made what he called an “embarrassing” attempt to seduce the Try With Me singer who is a judge and mentor on show. The unwelcome advance occurred at the Fox contest’s Hollywood wrap party.
Onlookers say that “he was flirting like mad” and “turning on his famous charm.” Apparently she giggled along with him as they sat side by side and chatted.
However, despite Jones laying his charm on pretty think, no matter what moves he tried, Nicole just wasn’t interested.
The source said,
“It was embarrassing to watch. Steve kept kissing her hand but she kept pulling away.”
Steve was persistent but Nicole was not to be persuaded. Jones has said that he considers Scherzinger to be “fair game” if , as is rumored, he is to be fired as presenter of The X Factor USA.
The pair has been romantically linked since Nicole Scherzinger split with her boyfriend of three years Lewis Hamilton in October.
