Nicole Scherzinger gets engaged to F1's Lewis Hamilton - Tabloid Hell
Former Pussycat Dolls singer's dad has apparently let the cat out of the bag
Speaking to the Mail On Sunday's Review, Afonso Valiente appeared to confirm the celebrity couple's plans to marry by commenting: "Yes, they are engaged".
He remarked: "You know about the proposal? My future son-in-law is a really nice guy, really down to earth. The family all like him. The good spirit is there."
Continuing with the platitudes towards the McLaren driver, he went on: "He is sincere and he and my daughter seem genuinely happy together. Lewis is a really good guy. When they came to visit, we hired them a Jeep because he had never driven one before."
However, a spokesperson for Hamilton denied the engagement in a statement to the newspaper.
The pair have been dating for four years, although tabloid rumours of a split surfaced last year.
Scherzinger replaced Cheryl Cole as a judge on the US version of The X Factor earlier this year.
