Nicole Scherzinger has revealed that she turned to singer-songwriter Tom Odell when she split from Lewis Hamilton.
The former X Factor judge said that her heartbreak left her “desperate” to focus on songwriting, and it was the Another Love singer who inspired her.
Nicole said, “I was going through a very rough time in my life. I was going through a break-up.
“As an artist, the only way I was able to escape from the pain and the hurt and the loss was to write – I was desperate.”
She went on, “I was in a hotel and I was like, ‘I need to get out of here and just write. Can you get me a piano player?’ My assistant recommended Tom Odell.
“I went to the studio, met him and we wrote right away. It was awesome… it was f**king awesome. I love artists who have many different levels to them.”
