Nicole Scherzinger Blows X Factor Paycheck Flying To See Lewis Hamilton

11 August 2012

Nicole Scherzinger will spend most of her £750,000 'X Factor' fee chartering private jets to visit boyfriend Lewis Hamilton during his Grand Prix race meetings.

The ex-Pussycat Doll, 34, will fly as far as Abu Dhabi and Brazil at a cost of at least £50,000 a time to keep their relationship on track. Pals say Nicole is keen to stay close to the Formula 1 star, 27, while filming 'The X Factor' every weekend from October to Christmas.

A friend of the singer said: “Lewis will sort some flights out for her, but she’s booking some herself and they’re eye-wateringly expensive.”

The Sun reported last month how the couple hit the skids when Lewis was snapped partying with a group of beauties at a London hotel. Now they're back together, she's keen to see the racer more often, as she really wants to make the relationship work.

The Sun reports that Nicole also plans to rent a £20,000-a-month London home to “escape the madness” while working on the show.

The friend added: “If she has any cash left at the end of this I’d be surprised.” Us too!

Nicole already faces her first 'X Factor' challenge from fellow judge Tulisa Contostavlos. The N-Dubz star, 24, has said she wants Tinie Tempah as her judges’ houses sidekick — days after it emerged Nicole has asked for him.

A source said: “The bitching could begin before the show airs.”

The new series starts on ITV1 a week today. We can't wait!
