Lewis Hamilton and Nicole Scherzinger, who were once a couple, have reportedly had an intimate tape leaked online.

According to The Sun, hackers have published a video online of the famous pair cuddling and kissing in bed.

The two and a half minute film, which is believed to have been recorded on a mobile phone, has been viewed over 286,000 times as of Sunday evening.

A source told the publication that Scherzinger would be ‘heartbroken’ over the footage being made public:

“Nicole will be heartbroken that such footage has found its way online. It was never intended for the public domain.”

The intimate footage is just one of a long string of celebrity phone hacks. Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Scarlett Johansson, Paris Hilton, Rihanna, Hulk Hogan and Tiger Woods have all had intimate material published online without their consent.

Former X Factor judge and Pussycat Doll singer Scherzinger, 40, dated famed race driver Hamilton, 34, on and off for eight years before finally splitting in 2015.

Since their split Hamilton has been linked to a string of female celebrities. He’s been rumoured to have dated Nicki Minaj, Winnie Harlow, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Rita Ora.

Meanwhile Scherzinger had a two-year relationship with Grigor Dimitrov but the pair split up last year.

Also according to The Sun, Jamie Redknapp has been pursuing the former Pussycat Doll since he heard of her split from Dimitrov. But the same report says that so far she has rebuffed his advances.

“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,” a source told the paper.
