Nicole Scherzinger 'angry and embarrassed' after Lewis Hamilton sprays champagne at penthouse party with 10 women… that went on until 5.30am

Nicole Scherzinger is angry with boyfriend Lewis Hamilton after it emerged he partied with a group of 10 women in a penthouse hotel suite earlier this week.
The racing driver had been out with American rapper J. Cole before heading back to London's May Fair Hotel with the party – which included a couple of his long-time friends, staying up dancing and spraying champagne until 5.30am.
The former Pussycat Doll, who is now a judge on the UK version of X Factor, is said to be 'angry and embarrassed' by the normally straight-laced Hamilton's behaviour.

Party girls: Two of the women who joined the penthouse bash said Lewis was spraying champagne over the room and the news has got him into hot water with girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger
Get the party started: Some of the women are seen here at the May Fair Hotel waiting to head up to the penthouse suite
The McLaren driver, 27, hardly drinks, and unlike the infamous F1 drivers of yesteryear, is rarely seen on the party scene.
A source said: 'Yes she's angry, he's embarrassed her. It's not his typical behaviour, but of course she's not happy.
'However she knows he hasn't done
anything wrong, but she's angry that he's been seen out like this while
she's back in America.'
Claudia Martinez and Emily Tudor, who
were among the guests invited back to the hotel, revealed to The Sun that Lewis was
having so much fun at the penthouse suite in the venue he even sprayed
the walls with champagne.

Emily said: 'It was huge, there was a kitchen, two bathrooms, two bedrooms and a huge lounge. Lots of people were chilling in the main room, people were smoking on the balcony.
'At one point, Lewis was spraying champagne all over the room like he had just won a race.'
Nicole – who is currently in Los Angeles – is at present readying herself for her new role as a judge on the UK version of the X Factor.
The couple have struggled at times to make their long-distance relationship work because of Hamilton's jet-set lifestyle as a Formula One driver.

Earlier this week Hamilton raised eyebrows after he was
