Nicole Scherzinger is reportedly spending £5 million on a luxury house in central London.
According to The Sunday Mirror, the X Factor Judge has decided to purchase the property in a bid to be closer to her boyfriend Lewis Hamilton.
A source told the paper: "Nicole decided to look for a house soon after she began working on The X Factor."
"She loves London and wants a home here. It's much nearer to Lewis, who has a home in Monaco [and] it means she will be able to spend much more time with him."
The source revealed that because of this, moving to London made perfect sense to Nicole.
They said: "He spends a lot of time on the racing circuit so seeing each other can sometimes be a challenge."
"This, along with her increased workload in Britain, has made moving a no-brainer."

The purchase however could also be a shrewd career move by Nicole who hopes that it will show Simon Cowell that she is committed to the UK X Factor by moving.
The source explained: "[Scherzinger] also hopes that being in the UK will put her in pole position for Simon Cowell to take her on for next year's series."
"Nicole will keep her home in Los Angeles because she will always need a base there... She loves it there. She has lots of friends and records much of her music out in LA too."
Rumors that guest judge Mel B would be taking over from Nicole on next year's show emerged last week after audiences had failed to warm to the newly appointed judge.
