Nicole Scherzinger – 2008 to 2015

Lewis and Nicole enjoyed a high-profile relationship which spanned eight years. They were one of the most famous couples in showbiz, but things eventually came to an end.

Lewis' sporting commitments and Nicole's TV and singing career allegedly put strain on their relationship, with them both constantly travelling and being busy.

Rihanna – 2015

Rihanna had been friends with the sports star for many years, but reports began to circulate that they were taking their relationship to a romantic level.

Veronica Valle – 2015

The singer reportedly enjoyed a holiday with Lewis in 2016, and she then attended the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix later that year in November, as his special guest.

Barbara Palvin – 2016

Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin grew close to Lewis in 2016, and the pair are believed to have enjoyed a short-lived fling.

The F1 ace met Hungarian model Barbara at the Cannes Film Festival, and they appeared to hit it off instantly. She then joined him at the European, Hungarian, and Monaco Grands Prix during that season.

Kendall Jenner – 2016

Lewis was linked to supermodel Kendall Jenner in 2016, after he was spotted enjoying a holiday with the Kardashian clan in Cannes and Monaco.

Winnie Harlow – 2016/17

Supermodel Winnie Harlow and Lewis set tongues wagging in 2016 when they were pictured at the GQ Awards together in September 2016.

As romance rumours began to fade, they were then snapped together at the amfAR Gala in Cannes in May 2017 together, but neither spoke out about the alleged relationship.

Nicki Minaj – 2018

Rapper Nicki Minaj was linked to Lewis in 2018, after rumours that the pair had hooked up in the summer began circulating.

Florence Mueller – 2020
