Nicole Scherzinger's man 'eyes rap career'

Lewis Hamilton and Nicole Scherzinger

Nicole Scherzinger's boyfriend is planning a hip-hop career.

The American singer is dating Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton, who enjoyed a night out in London with rapper J Cole this week.

J is hip-hop star Jay-Z's protégé and apparently thinks Lewis could make it big in the music world.

"Lewis had a great night with J Cole. He's a massive rap fan and J is really into F1 so they've bonded quickly," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

"J invited him to his studio the next time Lewis is in the US and said they could work on music together. Lewis said he'd repay him by sorting him out at any Grand Prix he wanted to go to."

It's thought Lewis has been planning his move into rap for some time. Last year, it was claimed he'd been working on tracks as a hobby and had lavished money on state-of-the-art recording equipment.

If he does decide to make music his profession, J is perfectly placed to help having scored a number one record in America.

Nicole wasn't with her beau during his evening of fun, leading to rumours about their romance when Lewis was spotted cosying up to a brunette woman. He took to Twitter to dispel the rumours, insisting the lady was simply a close friend of his.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
