London, October 11 (ANI): Nicole Scherzinger has credited her boyfriend Lewis Hamilton with helping her conquer an eight-year battle with bulimia.
The former Pussycat Dolls star became fixated on her weight at the start of her career and developed the eating disorder as she struggled to adjust to life in the spotlight.
Now the 34-year-old admits that it was the Formula One racing driver who helped her appreciate her body and her looks.
"(Hamilton) gave me the courage to kind of end that disorder and that disease. He made me feel beautiful for who I am and not what pant size I'm wearing and that helped a lot," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
"A little light came on in the back of my head and that's when I started to try and turn this around. I said, 'Wow, I've got to learn how to accept myself and my body.' I started to embrace myself as a woman and my curves.
"We are both passionate. Together we've created a great bond," she added. (ANI)
