Nicole Scherzinger credits boyfriend Lewis Hamilton with helping her conquer her 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 Don't Cha hit-maker admits it was the Formula One racing driver who helped her appreciate her body and her looks.

She says, "(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.

"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."

Scherzinger, who revealed her struggle with bulimia in her VH1 Behind the Music TV special, has conquered her self-esteem issues in recent years.
