Paging Mel Gibson and David Boreanaz: Please pry yourselves away your next She-Victim. There’s a new cheating cad waiting to be inducted into the Hollywood chapter of the World’s Slimest Husbands.
Christina Milian’s husband began legal action to end the couple’s shortlived marriage while the singer was still pregnant with his child.
“Single Ladies” songwriter The-Dream reportedly tried to officially split from Christina just nine days before the “Dip It Low” star gave birth to the couple’s only child. Christina and The-Dream married in the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas in Aug. 2009, just a week before announcing she was pregnant with their first child together. The 32-year-old producer (whose real name is Terius Nash) claimed the marriage was “irretrievably broken” in the papers filed on Feb. 17. Milian gave birth to daughter Violet just over a week later on Feb. 26.
Milian and The-Dream confirmed their separation almost two weeks, just hours after images of Nash canoodling on Caribbean beach with his assistant, Melissa Santiago, surfaced online.
After being publicly slammed as a cheater by critics on the blogosphere, The-Dream took to his blog earlier this month to explain the breakdown of his union with Christina. He claims he felt suicidal in the wake of his split from the singer after just five months of marriage.
“I’ve cried about this for months, after interviews, after prayer and I’ve tried to take my own life at a point because of the failure that was looming,” he wrote. “This is not to justify anything, it’s true emotion! It’s a real thing that involves real people!”
