Former England and Liverpool footballer Jamie Redknapp dream of dating Nicole Scherzinger took a hit after the X Factor judge reportedly rejected the offer. With Valentine’s Day approaching fast, the 45-year old (Jamie Redknapp) who is a Sky Sports pundit has been looking around for someone to spend some romantic time with and his eye settled on newly-single Nicole.
Nicole is single after splitting from her ex-boyfriend, tennis player Grigor Dimitrov, 27, who she dated for three and a half years. Prior to meeting Grigor, Nicole dated British Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton for eight years. Jamie’s marriage to ex-wife Louise Redknapp ended in 2017 after 19 years. The couple have two children together, sons Charley and Beau.
According to reports in The Sun, Jamie asked Nicole out on a date via mutual friends after discovering she had split with the Bulgarian.
A friend revealed to the tabloid: “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. She is on a break from Grigor and she deserves an amazing man, but she’s focusing on herself and her career.”
