R&B singer The-Dream has released an open letter to fans explaining his public separation from estranged wife Christina Milian.
In the letter, Dream also accepts responsibility for not being open with his supporters.
"I take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for misleading everyone into thinking everything was fine and okay when we knew problems existed for awhile! I wanted to speak up but we decided it wasn't for anyone to know. I would NEVER intentionally hurt a soul and everyone around me knows that! There was so much going on in me and Christina's personal world that I tried to deal with it as delicately as I could and tried to regain my footing. Instead of being direct in order not to cause even more hurt or hurt someone's feelings, I carried the weight in secret! I am Human and people fall in and out of Love all the time... This is Life. Nothing's promised or perfect, neither am I. I am not proud that I lost something we once had...LOVE! I've always been a Loving Father, Hard Worker, Generous, Stern and Eager to prove myself. My faults are I can be irresponsible and an ass sometimes, but I HAVE NEVER and WILL NEVER be a malicious person or wish harm to anyone, especially those I love or the mother of my child."

Dream also said he believed things would eventually return to normalcy.
"I'm sorry for the embarrassment to everyone involved! If there's anyone to blame and you can't fathom this happening, please blame me and me alone for not being upfront! Even though we were trying to overcome personal things between us, I was just simply scared and embarrassed to let everyone know we WERE FAILING and HAVE NOW FAILED! This is not to justify anything, it's true emotion! It's a real thing that involves real people! 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. But I was reminded by my MOTHER that I am not "Superman" and its okay to lose sometimes... This too shall pass! And everything will be fine!" (The Life Files)
Speculation on his marriage with Milian being on the outs stirred up this week.
The-Dream spent his weekend in the arms of a woman other than his wife Christina Milian. The singer-songwriter was seen getting friendly with a mystery woman on the beaches of the Caribbean without his wife or wedding ring. Milian, who gave birth to the couple's daughter Violet in February, didn't address the photos directly, but she did tweet earlier this morning: "WHATEVER YOU THINK.. BELIEVE IT." It wasn't long ago that The-Dream and Christina were spotted enjoying their own island vacation together. (Rap-Up)
Following the photo leaks, Dream released a statement announcing a separation from Milian.
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. (Us Magazine)
