Who Is Nicole Scherzinger's Boyfriend? Everything You Wanted To Know About Thom Evans

Nicole Scherzinger landed her first major singing gig over 20 years ago in 1999 when she began recording and touring with Days Of The New. After leaving Travis Meeks and band, she auditioned for the reality competition show Popstars which led her to joining the short-lived pop group Eden's Crush.

December 2003 found Scherzinger successfully auditioning for the Pussycat Dolls for whom she became the group's lead singer. Scherzinger also notably was the only member of the Pussycat Dolls to have songwriting credits on its 2005 debut album PCD.

After the Pussycat Dolls announced a hiatus in August 2009, Scherzinger not only continued to pursue a solo career, but also wound up cast as one of the judges on the NBC series The Sing-Off. The following year Scherzinger expanded her reach as an entrepreneur, teaming up with clothing store C&A to launch a collection of jewelry, shoes, accessories and lingerie for the Brazilian market.

Fast forwarding to January 2020, Scherzinger is not only still an in-demand judge for television shows — beyond her work on The Masked Singer, which just returned for its third season, she recently worked on Australia's Got Talent and will be part of the U.K.'s The X Factor: The Band — but also back with the Pussycat Dolls. 

Beyond work, things are also going well for the entertainer in her personal life, prompting people to ask: Who is Nicole Scherzinger's boyfriend? She's now in a relationship with Thom Evans and below is more information on Evans and his high-profile relationship with the singer from Hawaii.

3. Scherzinger and Evans have been known to work out together.​​

As two fitness-minded individuals who are often in front of a camera, it is not surprising that both Scherzinger and Evans opt to keep in great shape. Especially when you have a fashion line to look after like Scherzinger.

But per an Instagram post published by Scherzinger on January 14th, the two apparently work out together. 

4. This is not the first high-profile relationship for Evans.

Evans was previously linked with actress, model and media personality Kelly Brook. Brook was notably named "Sexiest Woman In The World" in 2005 by FHM.

In March 2011, Brook announced on Twitter that she was pregnant and that she and Evans were expecting a baby girl. However, it was announced in May 2011 that Brook had miscarried, and within two years of the tragic news, Brook had announced their relationship as being over.

5. Scherzinger has had her fair share of high-profile relationships prior to Evans as well.

Scherzinger was reportedly "on-again-off-again" for seven years with Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton until 2015. Following her breakup with Hamilton, Scherzinger dated tennis star Grigor Dimitrov.

She also has been linked with Nick Cannon, singer Ed Sheeran, 311 singer Nick Hexum, comedian Dane Cook, actor Talan Torreiro, and Swiss footballer Pajtim Kasami at different points. In turn, it can be difficult to determine whether Scherzinger truly has a "type."

6. Evans is active on social media.

Evans is very active on Instagram, currently having over 165,000 followers. Recent posts show him alongside sports legends, modeling, traveling and alongside Scherzinger.

While Evans does not appear to have official accounts on Twitter, Facebook or other social media networks, he can be followed indirectly via Scherzinger's social media accounts. Beyond the aforementioned workout photo and Golden Gloves appearance, Evans is seen dancing with Scherzinger in a video which they made for InStyle.

Scherzinger's Instagram account does not show her with any other beaus in recent posts, so it looks like her and Evans have gotten seriously very quickly. In turn, keep watching Instagram and you will likely keep up on the latest and greatest with both Scherzinger and Evans.
