Nicole Scherzinger has reportedly split with boyfriend of two years Grigor Dimitrov.

The former Pussycat Dolls singer (38) had been dating the Bulgarian tennis star (25) for two years, but is said to have ended things, just months after she was talking about how "awesome" it would be settling down with him.

It's reported that the X Factor judge called time on their relationship after seeing pictures of him with ex Maria Sharapova, whom he dated for two years before splitting in 2015.

There's no suggestion their relationship is anything more than friendship, but they were pictured together at the Madrid Open tennis tournament earlier this month - Sharapova's second tournament since she was banned for 15 months after she failed a drugs test.

Last year, Grigor said his ex deserved the ban, "If you do something, I mean obviously there are circumstances. And whoever does something deserves what he gets for sure."

"Nicole is devastated. She thought this time she'd found The One," an insider told heat.

The couple were last pictured together in March and earlier this month, The Sun claimed their romance was on the rocks due to their busy schedules as Grigor travels the world for tournaments and Nicole divides her time between London, Los Angeles and her native Hawaii, where she i reportedly holed up in her family home.

She's no stranger to high profile relationships as she finally ended things with Formula One superstar Lewis Hamilton in 2015 after seven years of dating on and off.

Nicole said she hoped she would be married with children at this point in her life, but has scarified for her career.

"Look at me? I'm not married and I ain't got no kids yet. Of course work has come at a sacrifice. I've missed out on life.

"I see a vision of what I want as an artist. Now I'm going to the top of that mountain. When I get there, then I'll have time for a family, and kids," she said.

"It's a sacrifice when you put your heart into a job. Relationships suffer," she told the Sunday Mirror.
