Looks like it’s the season of sports superstars to split with their honiez. First it was Cristiano Ronaldo and now bwana Lewis Hamilton.
After winning his second F1 (Formula 1 for those who aren’t speed demon enthusiasts) Championship it looks like Lewis Hamilton (30) has not been showing too much commitment to his boo Nicole Scheringer (36). This lack of commitment has caused some trouble in their fast-paced paradise. Nicole wanted to get hitched, and LH just wasn’t into it. At least according to the UK gossip tabloid The Mirror.
The Formula One world champion’s relationship with his on/off girlfriend of seven years has hit the wall, apparently after a series of Christmas rows. “It really is over this time,” a source told The Sun.
It is only a few months ago they were rumoured to be in the process of getting engaged.
But it is understood Nicole finally called time on the relationship after becoming convinced Lewis would never propose. But now it seems the couple’s increasing time away from each other has torn them apart. Nicole, is said to be “really upset”. Lewis, on the other hand, is said to be more committed than ever to his sport. His long-standing dream has been to win three world titles to emulate his hero Ayrton Senna, leaving little time for a steady love life.
“They’d been fighting for months but things had got much worse,” said a source.
“They spend so much time apart that things just became untenable.”
Despite splitting up a number of times in recent years, the pair seemed closer than ever at the end of 2014.
But Lewis was all too aware of the pressure that was on him to pop the question.
At Rihanna’s Diamond Ball, he told E!: “I’m certainly feeling pressure, heat from family members.
“But Nicole’s massively focused on her work the same as I am. We’re happy just way we are.”
Both Nicole and Lewis have been working hard over the last few months, and just as the sportsman got some time off, Nic joined the cast of Cats in the West End.
Lewis revealed: “Nicole is going to be working hard in London. I get a break.”
