Boomerang singer only hangs out with publicist

Nicole Scherzinger is feeling lonely following her split from Lewis Hamilton.

The American singer broke up with Formula One driver Lewis, 28, earlier this month after five years together and she’s now finding it tough living in the UK on her own.

To cope with the loneliness Nicole’s throwing herself into her work and her role as a judge on The X Factor.

I don’t have anyone here. I don’t have my family, I don’t even have friends,’ says Nicole, 35.

You make sacrifices, it is hard.

It gets lonely, but I am working all the time – if I am not on X Factor though I just put myself in the studio.’

The ex-Pussycat Dolls star – who is currently filming the auditions stage of The X Factor – is also exploring London with her publicist Becky Lockett and loves finding new places to eat out.

I love good food, so I’m getting to explore lots of restaurants,’ Nicole tells the Mirror.

I take my publicist and my assistant as my dates.

I am going flat hunting soon and I have started walking around the streets. I’m having a grand old time.’
