Lewis and Nicole - racing to bite the dust

By Staff Writer
Breaking celebrity news. Formula one driver Lewis Hamilton and Singer Nicole Scherzinger have split after a long relationship, to focus on their careers. Both of them are big earners, Lewis a massive earner in sports, and Nicole has hit pop group Pussy Cat Dolls and a solo career. They were together for 20 months but have now gone their separate ways. Has the pressure of their jobs really caused the split?

 

 

The toll of high flying careers can often take the passion out of a relationship. It's hard to keep the love alive when your partner is often on a different continent to you. Nicole had been delaying the recording of her solo album, Lewis is constantly practising with his team. They both earn enough money so it wasn't justmoney but perhaps the strain of never spending enough time with each other. So they have decided to split and concentrate on their careers instead.

The both of them have successful careers and it appears that they have decided to sacrifice their happiness for the ability to be the best in their chosen fields. Careers can often come between couples and when the couple is an ambitious one on both sides these kinds of splits may be more frequent. If you feel that there is any tension between you and you partner over your careers, then sit and talk it through before you may have to call it a day like Lewis and Nicole, now racing to bite the dust.
