The 35-year-old singer and the Formula 1 driver called time on their five-year on/off relationship because of their hectic work schedules, and Lewis admits his world has been ''turned upside down'' and he is finding it hard to stay positive.
The 28-year-old star told Sky Sports: ''You have different people who are able to keep in their emotions - I have a Finnish trainer, for example, who doesn't show any emotion and they are always able to control it.
''Me, I wear my heart on my sleeve and that gets me in trouble a lot of the time and I generally find it very, very hard to fight my emotions.
''I'm going through... I'm trying my hardest to be positive but I'm going through a really, really tough time at the moment with the loss of someone really, really special in my life.
''My world's turned upside down, but I have a job.''
He added: ''So I'm really trying to pull myself together and keep my head up, but it's so hard to do.''
