Posted: Updated:

The X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger has jetted back to the US after her grandmother died.

The singer's beloved grandma passed away on Saturday morning, and Nicole proved she was a pro by battling through her grief on last weekend's live shows.

She jumped on a plane from Heathrow to Los Angeles on Monday, accompanied by her boyfriend, Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton.

X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger has gone back to US with her boyfriend after her grandma died

A rep for the star said: "Nicole had to return to the US to attend her grandmother's funeral. Sadly, she passed away on Saturday morning.

"She did mention on the show that a couple of the songs were particularly poignant for her."

Viewers watching Saturday's show saw Nicole break down during several contestant's songs, including District 3's rendition of Tears In Heaven.

A source told The Sun: "She was devastated over her gran. Her first instinct was to rush home, but she made a commitment to those boys and her family assured her she could fly on Monday."

She is expected to be back in time for this weekend's live shows.

Nicole and Lewis have already faced one family death this year - the former Pussycat Doll supported her sports star beau after his aunt Diane died in August.
