"Don't Hold Your Breath," indeed!
Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton were rumored to be rekindling their on-and-off romance in August, but according to the singer herself, the two are merely platonic pals. "We're just friends," the 35-year-old pop star tells The Sun. "Just friends."
While they recently enjoyed a secret rendezvous at a London hotel, Scherzinger remains adamant that they are both single. "We just, um, met up to speak that night," she explains. "That's all."
Of course, that doesn't mean a reconciliation is totally off the table. "Whatever the future holds, I don't rule anything out," Scherzinger said. "I also don't have any regrets."
Scherzinger and the British Formula One racing driver first dated from 2008 to 2010. They got back together twice and most recently called it quits in July 2013. Scherzinger—former frontwoman of the Pussycat Dolls—was previously engaged to 311 rocker Nick Hexum; they broke up in November 2004.
The "Boomerang" singer credits a higher power with helping her get over Hamilton, 28.
"I got really deep into my spirituality. I know that's not what you really talk about over here, but for me, it's been my savior," she said. "A lot of time in relationships people lose themselves—they lose that sparkle, that shine, their purpose and how 'schmazing' they can be. For me, I had to get back to my core, my center, my soul."
