Nicole Scherzinger hit out at the blogosphere on Tuesday, issuing a furious denial of any romance with her Dancing With The Stars partner Derek Hough. The stunning bombshell insists she is “in love and committed” to her boyfriend, race car driver Lewis Hamilton.
The Pussycat Dolls star has been teamed with the professional dancer while she competes on the 10th season of the TV talent contest, but the pair has been hit with speculation they have grown a bit too close over the last few weeks. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time Derek has taken up romantically with one of his partners on the show: the hoffer previously dated former DWTS contender Shannon Elizabeth. The whispers have infuriated Scherzinger, who maintains that the relationship is platonic is adamant their relationship is strictly professional.
In a post on her Twitter page yesterday, Nicole wrote: “Been reading the net & seeing the craziest stories… Derek is like a little brother to me. Everyone knows how in luv (sic) & committed I am to Lewis!”
Nicole and Lewis recently reunited after briefly splitting in January.
