R&B singer Christina Milian opens up about her failed marriage to The-Dream and attempting to maintain their relationship in the new issue of Latina.
Within Milian's feature, the 29 year-old admitted their marriage was unfixable.
"No matter what, you can't change who you are. I know that now. I tried to be someone I wasn't because I wanted my marriage to work. But ultimately, if it's not working, it's not working...I didn't know anything. But looking back, my gut was telling me something was off. But I thought I could fix it...I learned a lot about myself this year. I learned what I can handle. I learned how much I can take. I learned who I am and what I will accept for myself and my daughter. I feel brand-new. I've been to h*ll and back, but I survived. I'm stronger for it and now I'm ready for the next phase of my life." (Latina)
In early December, Milian addressed rumors claiming she was paid $4 million to remain mum on her divorce.
"I have no idea where that rumor came from, and it's completely a rumor," Milian said in an interview with television host Wendy Williams. "Everything about that it is all fictitious. I'm completely allowed to speak about anything that I want to. Except the settlement, we do choose to not [publicize the details]." ("Wendy Williams Show")
Milian also said she hoped her divorce would remain amicable.
"I didn't want to fight...I really want my daughter to have her father around and to have a friendship, to try to build somewhat of a friendship for my daughter, and have some kind of relationship to be able to speak to each other about her every day. I didn't want to fight. I'm moving on." ("Wendy Williams Show")
Last November, published reports suggested Dream was responsible for paying monthly payments to his ex-wife.
In less than six months, the celebrity married couple went from separation to a divorce. Hit-making singer, producer and songwriter The-Dream and estranged singer/actress wife Christina Milian have reportedly agreed to a divorce settlement.The Chicago Sun Times has reported that the couple agreed to close to a $4 million divorce settlement, with the Def Jam Records star paying Milian an additional $5,000 per month.
