In an interview before splitting with on/off boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, Nicole Scherzinger admitted that she has "sacrificed" her relationships for her career.
The 'Your Love' hitmaker, who split from her on/off boyfriend of seven years, Formula 1 racing driver Lewis Hamilton, this week, has admitted her current stint starring in London's West End musical 'Cats' has meant she has had to make serious choices about her personal life.
Speaking in an interview conducted before the pair went their separate ways, she said: "I have made sacrifices. This is very time consuming.

"I've left LA, left all my friends and my family. It's sacrificing your time in relationships, with loved ones, and my work."
The 36-year-old singer also admitted she tries not to feel regretful about any of her life choices.
She added: "I try not to regret things, because I feel like as long as you put positive energy towards something - and you put your whole self, your true self, towards it - it'll lead you to the next place you're supposed to be."
Meanwhile, Nicole also opened up about her plans for the next 10 years, admitting she wants to have tried her hand at movies and have children by her mid-40s.
She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I was supposed to do a vision board and ask myself that, but I haven't got round to it yet. I'll be around 45, I want to be looking good. Gosh, that's intense.
"I don't know, maybe have had some movies under my belt, more albums, travelling the world, world tours would have been beautiful ... having done a lot of good charity work...
"I'll definitely have [kids] by then. I'll definitely have that. Definitely, that would be nice."
Nicole Scherzinger receives family support
Nicole Scherzinger's family have jetted to the UK to support her following her split from Lewis Hamilton, but friends believe the duo could rekindle their romance again in the future.
The 36-year-old singer, who is "heartbroken and devastated" after she and the 30-year-old Formula One driver ended their on-again, off-again relationship after seven years of dating, is relieved that her mother, Rosemary Elikolani, and maternal grandmother Mary have flown to London from her native Hawaii to be by her side.
A source close to the former Pussycat Dolls singer said: "Nicole was really lifted by her family's visit. It was the first time her grandmother had been to visit her in London, and it couldn't have come at a better time."
The brunette beauty is also trying to distract herself by focusing on her role in the West End revival of 'Cats' in the West End.
The insider told the MailOnline: "She's been throwing herself into work for the past few weeks and it's been a real tonic."
Nicole was said to have ended their relationship after a string of rows about their future over the festive period, but the source insists their latest split was "a mutual decision."
The friend explained: "The long distance kept them apart for long periods of time. They both spent most of their time alone because they were in different countries all the time.
They both care about each other deeply, and really wanted this to work out."
But it seems the duo might rekindle their romance again in the future.
Another source said: "It's been seven years now, and it's always the same reason that splits them up. Love always brings them back together."
