She recently opened up about the heartbreak over her split from long-term boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, and now Nicole Scherzinger has been hit with another curveball.

The former X-Factor judge has reportedly been dropped from her label after disappointing album sales.

Scherzinger enjoyed initial success after leaving the Pussycat Dolls in 2008 and released a series of top 10 singles including Don't Hold Your Breath and Right There. However, her latest album Big Fat Lie only spent three weeks in the Top 100 before dropping out.

"There is the feeling that Nicole didn't get the support she needed on the release to make it a success," a source told The Sun.

"Fans have been grumbling that they didn't think the right singles were released by the record label."

But hope is not completely lost. The insider added that it is likely the 36-year-old songstress will be picked up by another label.

IBTimes UK has contacted a spokesperson for Scherzinger for comment.

The news comes after a rollercoaster few months which saw the star break up with Hamilton and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini take her spot on The X-Factor.

In February, Scherzinger admitted that she was "devastated" following her split from the Formula One ace.

"I try not to regret things, because I feel like as long as you put positive energy towards something – and you put your whole self, your true self, towards it – it'll lead you to the next place you're supposed to be," she told The Telegraph.
