A few months after his split with Maria, Grigor was already seeing someone who was not from a tennis background. Her name was, Nicole Scherzinger, the popular songwriter, and singer. If you don’t know her, she was the lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls and recorded over 16 million records as an artist.
