Formula 1 champion and sports heartthrob Lewis Hamilton was thoroughly grilled by the members of the girls group 'Pussycat Dolls' before they finally let him date their lead singer Nicole Scherzinger.
The glamorous American singer began dating the British sportsman after they met in 2007, but Scherzinger's bandmates had to make sure that Hamilton was good enough for their friend, before they gave him the go ahead, 'Contactmusic' reported.
Melody Thornton, a part of the 5 member group said, "When we found out Lewis was a racing driver, we were like, 'Hold on a minute, he'd better not be a playboy',".
"So we asked him all sorts. What were his intentions, if he was a nice guy, did he know how to treat her right, did he bring her flowers and pull out chairs on dates? We didn't mess about and gave him a tough time as we do with all new boyfriends. We are very protective of each other especially when a new guy comes into the fold."
The group released their second studio album 'Doll Domination' in 2008 and have sold millions of copies worldwide.
