Christina Milian Says “Really Great Friendship” With Ex And Co-Parent The-Dream Is Dream Come True
Back in 2012, Christina Milian wasn’t too keen on the type of parent she’d seen her ex-husband, Terius “The-Dream” Nash, be to their daughter Violet. She said in an interview at the time with Houston’s 97.9 “The Box” that after the pair divorced, they ended up in different cities, and Nash became less involved in the child’s life.
“We live in different cities, he’s in Atlanta and I’m in LA. There are planes and plenty of money for airplanes,” she said. “I’m just gonna leave it at that. My daughter is a great kid and someday there will be a healthy man in my life that will love her the way I do.”
Well, if you fast forward almost five years, The-Dream has stepped up and Milian has completely changed her tune. In fact, their co-parenting relationship, according to the 36-year-old singer and actress, is in such a better place that the former couple call themselves good friends.
“We have a really great friendship, and that was the one thing that I dreamed of,” she told the ladies of The Real about how they make long-distance parenting work. “I knew our relationship didn’t work out, but my goal was to make sure that we had a good friendship going. Since then, everything has been really, really good. We manage to just travel back and forth. Sometimes I’ll bring Violet over there, maybe he’ll fly over here. She has a lot of siblings [laughs], so the siblings will come out here and come to see her. We make it work. The most important thing is our daughter and at the end of the day, what’s even better is we do have the friendship instilled. And he has a wonderful wife. I love his wife. I was literally just with them two weeks ago. I went to Atlanta and hung out with all of them. So we have a really cool friendship.”
Milian has moved forward romantically, and is dating singer Matt Pokora. Nash, as previously mentioned, remarried, wedding Lalonne Martinez in 2014. Aside from sharing daughter Violet, 8, with Milian, the singer and songwriter has seven other children, including three with Martinez.
