Christina Milian, The-Dream Split

Christina Milian and singer-producer Terius “The-Dream” Nash have called it quits less than a year since they eloped and got married in September 2009. A rep for The-Dream said the couple reached the decision late last year, when Milian was still pregnant with their first child.

“The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter Violet,” the rep said. Violet was born only in February, a couple of months since her parents apparently decided that their then-three-month old marriage was over.

The announcement of the split comes as several reports claim that The-Dream has a relationship with his assistant, Melissa Santiago. The-Dream was recently shown in photographs having a good time on a Caribbean beach with Santiago.

One of the photographs shows Santiago straddling The-Dream, who is not wearing his wedding band. If the marriage ends in divorce, it would be the second for The-Dream. The 32-year-old producer was previously married to singer Nivea, with whom he has three children.

Milian, or her rep, has yet to comment on the split.
