Pussycat Doll star Nicole Scherzinger has laughed off reports she is dating hip-hop star Will.i.am.
The singer sparked rumours she had split with British racing driver Lewis Hamilton after she was spotted kissing the Black Eyed Peas star at a Los Angeles club.
However, Scherzinger has denied the reports, insisting the singer is like family.
She told MTV: "That is the funniest thing because Will is like my brother and I don't know when the last time I had seen him was. He has been on tour."
