Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton have split up after five years together. The news comes shortly after Lewis hinted that he was planning to propose to Nicole, calling their five year relationship a milestone and saying he may pop the question before they reach their sixth year.

Apparently their busy schedules are to blame for the break-up of their relationship with a source saying:

It’s so hard to keep up a relationship when they’re barely in the same country as each other.

Both have supported each other in their careers and will continue to do so. But the nature of their work ultimately cost their relationship.

It’s not the first time that these two have broke it off though. Throughout their relationship they’ve been off and on so… maybe this is one of their “off” moments?

Who knows? We’ll see what happens.
