DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - ETC -

Ni­cole Scherzinger turned down Jamie Red­knapp when he asked her out. The 40-year-old singer — who re­cently split from ten­nis player Grigor Dim­itrov, 27 — was re­port­edly ap­proached by former soc­cer star Jamie, 45, about go­ing out on a date but re­jected him in or­der to spend more time “on her­self and her ca­reer’’. A source told The Sun, “Jamie has been very keen on Ni­cole but would never have tried it on when she was with Grigor. Since their split, he ex­pressed an in­ter­est in dat­ing her but the time isn’t right for Ni­cole. She is on a break from Grigor and she de­serves an amaz­ing man, but she’s fo­cus­ing on her­self and her ca­reer. They would make a lovely cou­ple so who knows what will hap­pen in the fu­ture.’’ The former Pussy­cat Doll star Ni­cole started dat­ing Grigor in 2015 but their ro­mance re­cently fiz­zled out. Be­fore Grigor, she had a long run­ning on/off re­la­tion­ship with Lewis Hamil­ton. Jamie and former wife Louise Red­knapp, 44, di­vorced in 2018 af­ter 19 years of mar­riage. Mean­while, Ni­cole has pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted that her “great­est weak­ness’’ is love. The star be­lieves she is a “fool for love’’ and says the “bravest thing’’ she has ever done is let­ting some­one she loves go. She said, “My great­est weak­ness is — I’m a fool for love. A real sucker... The bravest thing I’ve ever done is lov­ing some­one and let­ting them go when you know it’s not healthy for you, or serv­ing you. Then you’re fi­nally lov­ing your­self.’’ De­spite her love fears, she has in­sisted she hopes to set­tle down and tie the knot in the fu­ture.
