Los Angeles - Nicole Scherzinger has been dumped by her record label.
The 36-year-old singer is believed to have parted ways with RCA Records after experiencing a bad run of sales of her second solo album Big Fat Lie in the UK charts.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "There is the feeling that Nicole didn't get the support she needed on the release to make it a success."
They added: "A number of new songs leaked online a few weeks ago and fans were angry that they weren't on her last album."
The brunette beauty saw a dive in sales of singles released from the album. Her latest single - ironically titled On The Rocks - only managed to reach number 90 in the UK charts whilst her first single Your Love went in at number six in the charts but the second track Run climbed to number 46.
The international recording artist collaborated with a string of top producers in an attempt to boost her performance including Will.i.am, Dallas Austin and Beyoncé collaborator Toby Gad.
And the news comes after a difficult year for Nicole - who split from her long-term boyfriend the British Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton, 30, earlier this year after seven years together.
