The latter half of 2011 has brought a whole lot of drama into Nicole Scherzinger’s life. First, there was that nasty X Factor death-threat business, where Nicole and Paula AbdulÂ were the target of rabid fan messages. Now reports have surfaced that Nicole was held at gunpoint in Mexico by law enforcement officers! She was with choreographer Brian Friedman, driving through the mountains in Mexico to get to the set of Nicole’s new music video,Â “Try with Me,” when all of a sudden, their bulletproof SUV was pulled over by some gun-toting officials.
They were surrounded by Mexican authorities, Friedman told Star. “We were held at gunpoint.Â People next to our cars … there were M16s and Berettas!” There was total panic, but they were let go immediately. Just doing their jobs, right? While the police do confirm that the incident went down, they’re standing by the fact that no weapons were drawn on anyone.Â
“Nicole cursed me with this trip,” Friedman told Star. “It was the craziest adventure ever!” That music video better be worth the trouble.
