Nicole Scherzinger: 'I've had to make big personal sacrifices to get where I am'

Singer Nicole Scherzinger fears her career has cost her the chance to start a family.

The 38-year-old former Pussycat Dolls star admits she has put romance and motherhood on hold to chase her TV, music and theatre dreams.

Nicole, who is back as a judge on British TV talent show The X Factor, tells the Sunday Mirror, "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."

But she's not complaining and insists her time to settle down and start a family is yet to come.

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

"It's a sacrifice when you put your heart into a job. Relationships suffer."

Scherzinger had to turn down the chance to reprise her role in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats on Broadway to return to the ITV talent show and her decision initially upset the theatre impresario. But she hasn't given up on her New York stage dream and insists she will one day star on the Great White Way.

She hasn't given up on love either after ending her seven year romance with Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton - she's currently dating tennis star Grigor Dimitrov, who at 25 is 13 years younger than the singer.

"He's very supportive," she said.
