The glam, the glitz, the gunpoint? Nicole Scherzinger may seem like she has it all especially now that she's a judge on The X Factor, but she recently escaped a frightening experience in Mexico.

She was traveling to the set of her music video shoot, "Try with Me," and was held up at gunpoint by a local gang!
As reported by Star magazine (via RadarOnline), Nicole and an X Factor choreographer, Brian Friedman, were driving through drug-invested mountains in a bulletproof SUV. Low and behold, they were pulled over by mysterious gunmen!
Brian told the magazine, "We were held at gunpoint. People next to our cars… there were M16s and Berettas!"
The group was indeed released and left unharmed but definitely shaken up by the harrowing experience. He added, "Nicole cursed me with this trip. It was the craziest adventure ever!"
