lewis hamilton and nicole scherzingerLewis Hamilton was reportedly left blushing after a gift mix-up with girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger.

Pussycat Dolls star Nicole received a good luck gift of 50 red roses and a diamond necklace worth £100,000 before the group’s gig at the O2 Arena in London on Wednesday night - and when boyfriend Lewis showed up, she showered him with thankful kisses.

An onlooker told the Sun: “It was all a bit awkward for Lewis. He showed up and got an almighty embrace from Nicole to thank him for his gift.

“He had got her a pressie but it was something pretty simple and he seemed a bit baffled by her overreaction.”

In fact, the roses and the necklace were a gift from another admirer, a member of the Saudi royal family: “It soon became clear she thought the diamonds and the roses were from him, especially when she opened the card.

“They both saw the funny side - but Lewis will be upping his efforts next time.”
