After less than a year of marriage, singer-songwriter-producer The Dream and R&B star Christina Milian have gone their separate ways and Milian will be filing for divorce. It's been rumored that they have been separated since late 2009 but kept it quiet for the sake of their baby daughter Violet Madison Nash. This goes down in history as one of the shorter celebrity marriages - they tied the knot in September 2009, their daughter Violet was born on February 26, 2010.
The Dream, whose real name is Terius Hagert Youngdell Nash, confirmed his split from Milian after photos surfaced on the net of him frolicking in the Caribbean surf with a mystery brunette who is rumored to be his assistant.
"Terius 'The Dream' Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina Milian was unsuccessful."
"They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward." his representative in a statement.
Milian started dating The Dream in March 2009 a month after ending her three year relationship with producer Andre Lyon. She also had a high-profile two year romance with Mariah Carey's now-husband Nick Cannon, but it ended in 2005 after she accused him of cheating on her. It sounds like a case of history repeating itself.
It will be interesting to follow the details of their divorce settlement including who will get custody of their daughter. Hopefully they will be able to come to an agreement on child support and spousal support. If these factors can't be readily agreed on their divorce proceedings may last longer than their marriage.
