Scherzinger and Hamilton dated on and off between 2007 and 2015, with a lot of long distance stints.
They met at the 2007 MTV EMAs, and were one of the most famous celebrity couples.
She later spoke of the break-up on The Jonathan Ross Show: “I don’t see anything negative, I think it’s quite natural when people separate and go their own ways and you just have to be adult about it and just always wish the other person happiness, success and love like sincerely and I do.”

Hamilton spoke about the split in 2016 and said he loved his cars more than women.
He said: “My cars are my babies.
“I used to say, when I had a girlfriend, ‘I’m taking one of the girls out, so you can come if you want, but you come second when it comes to the cars.”
Since Hamilton split from the former X Factor judge, the Formula One driver has been linked to a number of celebrities, including Nikki Minaj, Winnie Harlow, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Rita Ora.
The celebrity pair are not the first couple to have intimate pictures leaked online.
Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Emma Watson and Scarlett Johansson were some of the celebrities to have had their material published online without consent after an attack on iCloud accounts.
The former Pussycat Doll put on a defiant front just hours after the leak when she stepped out of the Hollywood Beauty Awards.
She looked glamorous in a floor length gown and wore her hair in a 1960s style quiff.
However she looked stony faced in pictures as she attended the awards alongside other celebrities, including Ashlee Simpton and Kim Kardashian.
