X Factor 2012: Nicole Scherzinger set to spend most of her X Factor fee on flights to see Lewis Hamilton!
Although new X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger reportedly landed the very nice thank you sum of £750,000 for agreeing to become the fourth judge on the show, it seems she’s already earmarked the money to pay for flights and renting a house.
Former Pussycat Doll Nicole is of course dating Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton, and today’s Sun claims she intends to charter private jets to destinations such as Abu Dhabi and Brazil – at a cost of at least £50,000 a pop – in order to “keep their relationship on track” as he takes part in races.
A friend of Nicole’s told the paper, “Lewis will sort some flights out for her, but she’s booking some herself and they’re eye-wateringly expensive.”
Nicole reportedly also wants to rent a £20,000-a-month London home to “escape the madness” while she’s working on the show…
The friend added, “If she has any cash left at the end of this I’d be surprised.”
Nicole and Lewis’ relationship went through a rocky patch recently when a tabloid newspaper revealed he had partied with a group of girls in a luxury penthouse suite in a top hotel.
It was thought at the time that following the report, Nicole may call time on their relationship, however, she’s vowed to stand by him and dismissed the partying incident as being an innocent gathering of friends.
The X Factor returns to ITV a week today.
