X Factor 2012: Lewis Hamilton “fuming” over pics of Nicole Scherzinger snogging Chris Brown! And Tulisa says “I’m 50% despised, 50% loved”
It’s been reported today that Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton was left “fuming” after several media websites posted pictures of his girlfriend, X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger, snogging bad boy rapper Chris Brown.
The pictures were apparently taken at the celeb hangout Supperclub, and when they surfaced, one onlooker said, “It was unbelievable. They were all over each other like teenagers.
“They tried staying in the shadows, but it was pretty obvious what was going on.
“Neither of them seemed to give their partners a second thought.
“If I was Lewis I’d never speak to her again.”
The Daily Star adds that Rihanna, who is of course Brown’s ex is, “likely to be jealous” given that she said last month that she still loves Chris…
She recently sent him a message before his probation hearing in court which read, “@chrisbrown I’m praying for you and wishing u the best today!” and he replied: “thank u so much.”
Chris is on probation after allegedly assaulting Rihanna in 2009. He was in court on Monday after failing a drug test for cannabis.
But of the snogging debacle, spokesmen for the two stars played down the incident, denying that Brown was kissing Nicole.
His spokesman said, “They are old friends and were talking at a club that had loud music playing.”
Her remark came in response to host Phillip Schofield asking, “What do you think is the public’s perception of you?”
Tulisa replied, “It’s a good question. 50/50. Despised and loved.
“I’d say from N-Dubz it was very 50/50. When I first started X Factor, it leaned more towards being loved.
“And then now, it’s kind of back to 50/50.
“I think that when I first started X Factor I was very… I don’t know… I didn’t choose to sugarcoat myself, I’m always myself, but I was just kind of finding my feet.
“I was quite wary coming into this new place in the public eye, and then it just kind of got to the point where I was like I just have to 100 per cent be myself.
“And then as soon as I started being 100 per cent being myself, it went back to 50/50. But I’m cool with that, as long as I’m being me.”
During the interview, Tulisa also confirmed that she will be reuniting with her N-Dubz band mates at some point this year to work on new material.
