Nicole Scherzinger: 'Chris Brown is like a little brother to me'

By
X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger has described Chris Brown as "like a little brother" to her.

The former Pussycat Doll spoke highly of Brown in a new interview with Marie Claire, calling the R&B star - who is believed to have reunited with ex-girlfriend Rihanna after assaulting her in 2009 - "one of the most talented" artists of modern times.

"I've known Chris since he started in the business," she said. "He's like a little brother [to me]. He's one of the most talented people in the industry."

However, Scherzinger declined to address recent photos of her and Brown taken on a night out in which they were erroneously reported to be kissing, shifting focus to her relationship with Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton instead.

"Lewis and I are a team and we're really there for each other, and the time we spend together I do cherish," she said. "It's separate from everything else.

"I know there are a lot of relationships who, you know... take Kanye West and Kim Kardashian - well, they're perfect for the cameras. Lewis and I are a bit more subdued."

Scherzinger said though that she is not yet ready to settle down and start a family with Hamilton.

"I'm not having someone else raise my kids," the 34-year-old stated. "I think five years might be a good time to look at having children, but I think whenever it's meant to happen is when it will happen. Right now, I'm focussing on my career.

"I see lots of women having beautiful children later in life now. And, if not, just freeze your eggs."
