Nicole Scherzinger has held crisis talks with her on-off boyfriend Lewis Hamilton.

The stunning singer was recently photographed looking “touchy feely” with Chris Brown at a club in Hollywood. Although Nicole was quick to insist they are just “old friends”, Formula One racing driver Lewis was furious when he saw the pictures.

Lewis reportedly ended his romance with Nicole three weeks ago, but still apparently “hit the roof” when he saw the pictures last week.

“Splitting was his decision. He’s got a lot on his plate at the moment. And her commitments on X Factor and his career were clashing over the last few months,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “When he saw the pictures of her with Chris, he flew off the handle. He wasn’t happy at all— even though they were not together anymore.”

Although Nicole had explained that she doesn’t have romantic feelings for Chris, Lewis apparently “wanted to hear it for himself”.

After their make-or-break meet up, Lewis is said to have agreed to give their romance another chance.

Nicole will be spending the next few months in London for her role as a judge on the UK X Factor, meaning she will see more of British racer Lewis.
