“I wouldn’t wish a long-distance relationship on anyone.”
Nicole Scherzinger has confessed that dating Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton is “challenging” and admitted: “I wouldn’t wish a long-distance relationship on anyone.”
Talking exclusively to The Sun, the X Factor fox also spoke for the first time about that photo of her appearing to smooch with Rihanna’s ex Chris Brown — describing it as DROSS.
And she hit back at claims that she was upset after Lewis was caught with a bevy of ten girls in a hotel lobby — insisting it was innocent.
Nicole claimed her cosiness with controversial singer Brown, 23, at an LA nightclub four weeks ago was not what it seemed.
She said: “You are always going to have people saying something or having a picture. But it is complete dross if you and your partner know what the truth is.
“Chris Brown and I are definitely just mates — I have known him since he was younger than 16.
“We were just talking. Even my mum said, ‘I saw a picture of you’.It’s the same when Lewis had some random girls sitting in the lobby.”
Racing driver Lewis caused a stir in July after inviting women he had just met back to his London hotel for a late-night party.
He was pictured grinning from ear to ear on the wild night out with rapper J Cole — while his girlfriend was 5,000 miles away in America.
But Nicole, 34 — who pals said hit the roof — claimed there was nothing going on. She said: “Can’t girls just be sitting in the lobby? Maybe they were going to the same party.”
Nicole said: “Every relationship has its things and you work it out. We made it last for four years so far, so it definitely makes things interesting and challenging.
“I wouldn’t wish a long-distance relationship on anyone, Lewis would say the same. But if it’s worth it, you fight for it. We try to see each other as much as possible.”
She added Lewis had flown in to be with her on his way to this weekend’s Indian Grand Prix — and even made a trip down to see the X Factor. She said: “Lewis was backstage. He enjoys it and is supportive of me. I don’t care whether he felt like he was dragged there.
“He wants to support me. I am there for him and his races
