Reading Time: 2 minutes
We can’t keep up with all of Nicole Scherzinger’s love interests these days. Now it looks like she might have something going on with her X Factor colleague Naughty Boy.
Nicole and Naughty Boy are the only two judges on Simon Cowell’s new ITV talent show X Factor: The Band. Read on to find out more about the music mogul, and what fans think of him and Nicole getting cozy.
Who Is Naughty Boy Music ?
Naughty Boy, who was born Shahid Khan, is a 34-year-old English DJ, record producer, and songwriter. He’s worked with artists like Rihanna and Beyoncé. Naughty Boy also co-wrote and produced Emili Sandé’s album Our Version of Events. He released his own album Hotel Cabana in 2013.
Now he’s joined X Factor: The Band to help Simon Cowell discover the next big singing group. The show will have four episodes, starting Monday night in the UK. Notably, the group Little Mix (which was formed on X Factor) has announced their own show called The Search with a similar concept.
Are Nicole Scherzinger And Naughty Boy Dating?
Over the weekend, Nicole posted a pair of Instagram photos in which she and Naughty Boy are cuddling together under a fur blanket. In one of the shots, Naughty Boy is kissing Nicole on the cheek.
“What’s going on here then?!” asked one fan. Another posted the eyes emoji, while someone else wrote that Naughty Boy needs to “keep both hands where I can see them.”
Could romance be brewing between the two judges? Or are the rumors about Nicole and X Factor: Celebrity star Thom Evans true? It wouldn’t be the first time Nicole has been linked to an X Factor star. She was also rumored to have dated winner Matt Terry.
However, the pairing we’re really shipping this year is Nicole and Thingamajig on The Masked Singer.
