Nicole Scherzinger's boyfriends over the years: The Pussycat Dolls fame has been dating Thomas Evans since 2020: Complete story here!
The iconic Pussycat Dolls were introduced to the world in 2005. Deemed one of the most successful and highest-selling girl groups of all time, the ensemble consisted of six fresh faces- Nicole Scherzinger, Carmit Bachar, Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Jessica Sutta, and Melody Thornton. The group's fast climb to stardom came with hits like Don't Cha, Stickwitu, and Buttons. Over twelve years since its dissolution, the world still reckons how Scherzinger stood out from the rest of the members and gained mainstream recognition.
Scherzinger, 44, enjoyed five years of career-changing stint with the group before she forayed into a solo journey after the ensemble's disbandment. The singer has since garnered a multi-hyphenated profile. Scherzinger's romantic career has been no less exciting. The stunning brunette has had many rumored flings and romances and a few official relationships over the years.
Inside Nicole Scherzinger's Romantic History!
Nicole has been open about many challenging subjects like feminism, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, and the pressure of stardom, but the singer pretty much remains on her guard when it comes to her personal life. Nicole's earliest romantic encounter, as it turns out, was with now-peculiar Nick Cannon, who once revealed he had a fling with the Pussycat Dolls fame. Of course, the X Factor judge never dished on Cannon's unveiling remarks. One of Scherzinger's lesser-known and yet one the most stable relationships was with 311 lead singer Nick Hexum.

The Pussycat Dolls alum and Hexum reportedly came across each other backstage at a concert in 2000. They went on to become inseparable- so much so that Hexum allegedly had a say in Scherzinger's career. Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.i.am revealed that Nicole could have been a band member had it not been for Hexum. "Nicole's boyfriend said no, she couldn't be in the Black Eyed Peas," the rapper said. Nicole and Hexum were engaged at a point during their four-year-long relationship.
Scherzinger's best-known relationship to date has to be with the British car racer Lewis Hamilton, whom she dated on and off from 2007 to 2015. The Formula One driver and the pop star met at MTV Europe Music Awards in Munich and went on to have a low-profile yet quite alive romance for eight years. The pair even sparked engagement rumors at one point but called it quits for good in 2015. Sources close to the low-key couple cited their busy schedules as one of the main factors in their break up.

After her official and not-so-public romances with a singer and a race car driver, the Don't Hold Your Breath crooner hopped in for a next stable relationship with a professional tennis player. Nicole and Bulgarian pro tennis player Grigor Dimitrov were together for three before splitting ways in 2018. Scherzinger's dating history also includes some confirmed rumored affairs; she has been linked with One Direction fame Harry Styles, comedian Dane Cook, television personality Talan Torriero, and soccer player Pajtim Kasami.
Who is Nicole Scherzinger Dating?
The pussycat doll is very much in love. Scherzinger started dating her now-beau rugby player Thom Evans after the latter appeared as a contestant on 2019's X Factor: Celebrity, where Nicole filled the seat as a judge. The pair's romance recently caught scrutiny after reports claimed that the two had broken up after three years of dating bliss. While neither released any statement on the split rumor, Scherzinger fitly shot down the claim. Posting a screenshot of the misleading report, Nicole wrote, "What a joke."

Further mocking the rumor, The X-Factor judge tags her boyfriend with the caption, "See you for Valentine’s Day, babe @te11." Since Nicole and Evans are still going strong after all these years, here's a look at the couple's love story. The two first sparked dating speculations in December 2019, and not long after, they made their relationship official in January 2020 by making their red carpet-debut. Fans have since had a feeling that Evans might be the one for the Pussycat Dolls alum.

Since going public in 2020, the couple has displayed immense end-goal potential, with Evans forming a bond with Scherzinger's family and the singer gushing about her romance with Thom. "Now I have a new perspective, and things balance out. And I'm grateful to [in lockdown] build a healthy, strong, solid foundation for my relationship," Nicole said while referring to her lockdown romance with Thom.

The loved-up pair seldom posts each other on their Instagram with lovey-dovey captions. The otherwise reticent rugby player once spoke about his dynamics with the singer. "People always say, 'When you know, you know,’ and I can honestly say I'd never really had that moment. But it was just awesome within the first couple of days with Nicole, and it has been awesome ever since," Thom said. Evans previously dated actress Kelly Brook.
Nicole Scherzinger and her beau Thom Evans are officially engaged! The Scottish rugby player proposed after four wonderful years of dating, and on June 27, 2023, Nicole joyfully accepted his proposal. The couple shared the exciting news with their followers on their respective Instagram accounts.
