Nicole Scherzinger, Lewis Hamilton Break Up After Five Years Together

Don't cha wish love would last forever?

Sadly, Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger and British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton have parted ways, according to The Sun.

The 35-year-old former X Factor judge and her 28-year-old beau had been together for five years and reportedly split due to their busy schedules.

It’s so hard to keep up a relationship when they’re barely in the same country as each other," a source says. "Both have supported each other in their careers and will continue to do so. But the nature of their work ultimately cost their relationship."

"It's not the first time they have broken up," another source reveals to Us Weekly. "But it feels like this time it's for good."

This news is especially surprising given that Lewis had hinted just last week that good things were on the horizon for them. "We've been together for five years, which is quite a milestone, really," he said, adding that he hoped to propose to Nicole "in the near future ... maybe before we get to six years." Sadness!

Nicole and Lewis had endured some tough times together, with Nicole recently crediting him for helping her during her struggle with bulimia. "He gave me the courage to kind of end that disorder and that disease," she said last year. "He made me feel beautiful for who I am and not what pant size I'm wearing, and that helped a lot."

We're wishing the two the best after this surprising break-up.
