Exclusive: Christina Milian, The-Dream Separate
Christina Milian and The-Dream have decided to separate, his rep confirms to UsMagazine.com.
"Terius 'The-Dream' Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina Milian was unsuccessful. The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter Violet. They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward," his rep tells Us.
The split confirmation comes as racy photos surface of The-Dream and his assistant of about a year, Melissa Santiago, frolicking in the Caribbean.
The producer and singer (who released his third album, Love King, on June 29), 32, proposed to Milian, 28, in July 2009 with a six-carat diamond ring from Ivanka Trump's jewelry line. The couple eloped last September in Las Vegas, and said "I Do" a second time in Rome in December. They welcomed daughter Violet five months ago.
In April, Milian told Us Weekly that her baby girl has "a lot of personality! She laughs a lot!" She had already lost 27 of the 45 pounds she gained while expecting by "eating salads like crazy," she said.
The-Dream has three children from a previous marriage to singer Nivea.
