She grew up in Louisville, Kentucky with stepfather Gary Scherzinger, who is of German descent, mother Rosemary and sister Ke'ala. Nicole took her step-father's surname, as he raised her and she has always considered him to be her father. She began her life as a performer in Louisville, attending the Youth Performing Arts School at duPont Manual High School and performing with Actors Theatre of Louisville.

After a series of performances on shows such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live, Nicole and the Pussycat Dolls began work on their debut album.

As for Nicole's private life, she prefers to stay out of the limelight -- doubtless a difficult task during her brief engagement to Nick Hexum, the lead singer of 311.
