“We Like Those Intimate Moments To Be Our Own”: Christina Milian Explains Why Lil Wayne Barely Takes Pictures With Her
Even though Lil Wayne and Christina Milian haven’t stepped out in public and declared exactly what they are, we all know that the pair are some kind of item, despite the fact that the rapper still spends a lot of time with his ex, Dhea Sodano. And while Sodano and Wayne can often be seen hanging out together alongside the rapper’s daughter and friends, as well has with her friends and family, Milian and the rapper rarely are seen out and about as an open and happy couple (aside from being spotted leaving a few restaurants and performing together at the American Music Awards). Someone decided they wanted to ask Milian what the deal was, and she had no problem letting the fan know that some moments are for the people in the relationship–not the world.
Unfortunately, people are saying that they don’t take pictures together because she’s just one part of a group of women that Wayne entertains. But considering that Milian always seems pretty content about whatever their situationship is when she speaks to the media (“He’s my man crush everything. How about that? Is than answer”), then I guess that’s okay. You know these Lil Waynes and Diddys just have a way of persuading folks to be down with just about anything…
“I Wouldn’t Do That To Him”: The-Dream Says He Had To Have A Chat With Lil Wayne About Dating Christina Milian
In a new chat with The Breakfast Club, The-Dream talked a lot about love: past love, his new love, Lalonne Martinez, and what he has learned after three marriages. The singer also spoke on Lil Wayne’s penchant for going after his exes, why his marriage to Christina Milian didn’t work, and whether or not he cheated on her (I know you all remember that infamous pic of him on the beach frolicking with another woman while they were still married…). Here is the piping hot tea from that interview:
What Makes His Third Marriage To Lalonne Martinez Different From The Last Two
You know I’m a hopeless romantic. I love being married. At least this time I don’t have the drama around it. It’s the non-drama. Because I don’t call you to see where you’re at. I don’t do that. It’s that stuff. It’s that uneasy thing, especially in this business. I need to be creative and do my thing, so I don’t have time for the nonsense.
But I’m always ready to settle down. I’m built a certain type of way.
How He Met His New Wife
We met maybe years ago. She would actually remind me that we met in crossing at the office of one of my friends. I had no idea. It was just this random thing. It wasn’t like she was seeking me out and I was seeking her out. It was just one of those things: I ended up free and she ended up free. And it was like, “Aye, you’re cool. I’ve had enough drama.”
After Three Proposals, When Does He Know He Wants To Pop The Question?
I don’t think it’s a particular time. I guess it’s a feeling that kind of comes over of you wanting to or seeing yourself with this particular person, the way that you are then, over the rest of your life. It’s just at that particular moment that you feel that way. Unfortunately, for a lot of people, especially today, when two people are growing, somebody can grow left and somebody can grow right. It’s hard to maintain that particular moment you were in, even if it’s for two months or four months. I try to tell people now about maintaining exactly who you are. If that’s not you, don’t go down the aisle. More so for women, don’t just say yes because your girls are looking at you, and you want to get married because your girl got married, and there’s a guy standing in front of you with a ring in his hand. You don’t have to feel like you have to say yes just because of the moment. You can say, “You know what? I’m not ready. I’m not ready for a lot of reasons. My family doesn’t want me to do it.” In our situation, with Christina, it had more to do with a family thing than it had to do with me and her. When you have that combed out section of just you and the other person, you’re good. But when you add like four other personalities into this, it turns into something else. If the other person can’t shield that off, and they let it in, then usually you have a problem. Most marriages end in that way. You’re marrying the family.
On That Infamous Pic Of Him Cheating On Christina Milian On A Beach
Is that really how it went? Ya’ll been looking at her show. Is that how it went down?
How He Knew Their Marriage Was Over
It’s when you don’t feel happy anymore. I mean, it’s not like you’re not trying to work through whatever it is. But it’s some things you can use logic and common sense to come to a conclusion. Cheating wasn’t the reason why…
If He Ever Talked To Lil Wayne About The Rapper Dating His Ex-Wives
We had ONE conversation. We don’t have conversations about having the same taste in women. And I didn’t ask why. I don’t ask anybody why they do anything. Everybody’s grown. Do whatever you want to do, but it is what it is. He put in a phone call to me, just being a gentleman. It’s my ex. It’s still your ex. I wouldn’t do that to him, but we have two different personalities.
There were countless rumors flying around surrounding issues that contributed to The-Dream and Christina Milian’s divorce. However, one story that hasn’t made too many rounds is how Christina’s relatives affected their relationship. During a recent episode of “Christina Milian: Turned Up,” the singer revealed that things got so bad between her family and her now ex-husband that they didn’t even show up to their wedding.
Recently, The-Dream discussed his ex-wife’s revelation and he says that he’s happy she spoke out about this.
“It was very big of her. That time was a hard time in the dark. Of course, you see something, and you think it is what it is but you never really know what’s going on,” the producer told HipHollywood. “Kudos to her for getting that out because I know that it has been on her heart to say, ‘Oh, that’s not what you thought it was.’ I tried to maintain a certain type of decency when it came to that … I felt like as a guy it was not my place to go out and say what happened at a wedding or say what happened with the family or whatever it is. [I] Just let them work through that, and I took those two, three years just kind of taking the full blame for that.”
As for Christina’s relationship with Lil Wayne, The-Dream says he has no issues with her relationship.
“People can love whoever they want to love,” he expressed.
Of course, initially, he seemed to feel that the relationship added an awkward dynamic his, Nivea’s and Christina’s families.
“I think that’s what everybody was thinking when the news broke. Everybody was thinking of that but supposedly Christina,” he said last summer. “She wasn’t thinking of that at all. I have no idea how she could not be thinking of that.”
Anyway, we’re glad everyone is on decent terms now.

If you watched the Grammys last night, you saw Kanye almost pull a “Kanye” when artist Beck took the stage to accept his award for album of the year. But then, he thought better of it and returned to his seat. And it was pretty funny.
But in reality, he wasn’t joking.
He just chose to hold his opinion until the end of the evening. When Terrence J, Khloe Kardashian and Christina Milian interviewed Kanye after the show, for E News, he let them know how he really felt about Beck taking home the award.
“The Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t finna play with them no more! And Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé. And at this point, we tired of it. Because what happens is when you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in the face, after they deliver monumental feats of music, you’re disrespectful to inspiration.
And we, as musicians, have to inspire people who go to work everyday. And they listen to that Beyoncé album and they feel like it takes them to another place. Then they do this whole promotional event…you know they’ll run the music over somebody’s speech, the artist, because they want the commercial advertising. Like no, we’re not playing with them anymore.
And by the way I got my wife, my daughter and I got my clothing line. So I’m not finna to do nothing to put my daughter at risk but I am here to fight for creativity. That’s why I didn’t say nothing tonight. But y’all know what it meant when Ye walked on that stage.”
Listen, Kanye is known for going off the deep end. And speaking up at, what some might consider, inopportune times; but I’m going to have to agree with him, to some extent, with this one. I’m well aware that Beyoncé is not the only person to create music. And I know that Beck has been in the game for a long time, with over 13 albums. But she did something remarkable with the unexpected, unpromoted drop of her visual album, that just so happened to feature incredibly rich and diverse sounds. And that should have been rewarded last night.
Still, this is bigger than Beyoncé.
The Grammys often uses Black artists for ratings but recognition is another story. You’ll notice that the number of Black performances and performances of Black music have increased significantly over the years. They get these Black entertainers to perform and even host the show because they want us to watch and comment about the event. But when it comes to handing out those golden gramophones, our work and accomplishments are often overlooked. So Kanye definitely has a point. I’m just glad he didn’t ruin Beck’s moment by expressing said point, as he was accepting his award.
We all got the message anyway.
You can watch Ye’s full interview in the video below. And I have to mention that you should pay attention to the look on Kim Kardashian’s face as he’s speaking. Even she has no idea what’s going to come out of his mouth.
There are far too many celebrities whose relationships have ended because of infidelity. Just like regular folk. Cheating is so plebeian. And while stepping out is pretty bad, these following celebrities were hurt on another type of level when they were betrayed by their spouses–or former spouses. Find out who I’m talking about on the following pages.
Just when you thought the peculiar situationship between Christina Milian and Lil Wayne couldn’t get any more awkward, they turn around and do this. Last night, the unlikely pair debuted their remix to Jay Z and Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love,” and it’s pretty graphic.
On the track, which has been included on the rapper’s newly released Sorry 4 the Wait 2 mixtape, Wayne and Christina get straight nasty with him rapping about her “p—y” being “warmer than a Northface” and her singing about riding his “skateboard.”
The song was released on the heels of the premiere of Christina’s new reality show, “Turned Up,” which seems to perfectly describe her lifestyle right now. We can only imagine what Nivea must be thinking right now.
Get into it below and let us know your thoughts…
Are you ready for “Christina Milian Turned Up”? Well, whether you are or not her new reality show with her sisters and her mom is airing on E! tonight and from what we’ve seen of the previews so far, the ladies are definitely turnt.
We had a chance to chat with Christina and her sisters earlier this week to ask them if they’re at all worried about the infamous reality TV curse that has ruined many a family and couple in the past but the Cuban ladies told us no. Christina Milian offered up an excited “yes,” though, when we asked the ex-wife of The Dream if she’d be open to marrying again and even having more children. Naturally, we had to ask about Weezy after that and whether Christina’s rumored boo would be making an appearance on her reality show. Guess what she said…
Watch the video above and tell us what you think. Will you be watching “Christina Milian Turned Up” tonight?
“#WhatsMineIsMine”: Christina Milian Clapsback At Karrine Steffans Over Lil Wayne Comments, But Steffans Strikes Back
We told you yesterday that Karrine Steffans decided to send a message to Christina Milian on Instagram after the singer made Lil Wayne her “MCM eeeryday” and gushed about him on “The Wendy Williams Show.” That message read as followed:
“And most importantly, little girl, be careful not to claim a man who belongs to the world.”
As it turns out, Milian saw what Steffans had to say (thanks to the folks at TheShadeRoom) and responded:
If that wasn’t enough, Milian went on to post this image of a wolf and this statement on her own social media pages:
But Steffans, who really wants us to believe that she wasn’t directing her original comments towards Milian, wasn’t going to take such shade lying down. In a lengthy response on her Instagram page, the author and former video vixen reminded Milian that she’s just “one option on a very long list of options” in Lil Wayne’s life:
Here's the thing about life. Not everything is about you. And if someone says or does something that has nothing to do with you but, somehow, you feel convicted by it, that says a lot more about you and your insecurities than it does about the other person. Not everything is shade. Some shit is just the truth. But not every palm tree or personal truth belongs to you. Other people have experiences, too, and their account of those experiences has everything to do with them and nothing to do with you. Confidence is key and not everyone has it. This is obvious. Also, here's the thing about men. They do what they want, how they want, when they want, and with whom they want. Just like women. Because of this, be careful when pouring expectations into people. We all have a history but look at a person's patterns. I have mine. You have yours. The next person has theirs and they all tend to repeat. Know the difference between being one option on a very long list of options and being the one and only. Be truthful with yourself about the state of your affairs and you'll never be mad a day in your life. None of us belong to eachother and we all belong to God. Be well. 💋
And to prove her point, as well as to add insult to injury, Steffans posted a screenshot from a story on VLADTV about a model who just posted some pictures from what she is claiming is Lil Wayne’s bed. Steffans co-opted Milian’s own #WhatsMineIsMine hashtag in the process…
Interesting enough though, on “The Wendy Williams Show” yesterday, Milian couldn’t actually define what she and Wayne are doing, but seemed happy enough with what whatever it is.
“He’s my man crush everything. How about that? Is than an answer?”
“We have great chemistry and we have a really great involvement in each other’s lives.”
When you’re squabbling on social media over Lil Wayne, and he’s somewhere silent, you might want to rethink your priorities…just saying!
Is Lil Wayne Your Man Or Nah? Christina Milian Opens Up About The Relationship On The Wendy Williams Show
In promotion for her new show “Christina Milian: Turned Up” Christina stopped by The Wendy Williams Show. And since Wendy never bites her tongue she asked a few questions we’ve all been dying to know the answer to…like umm “Is Lil Wayne your man or what?” Check out Christina’s response to this and other questions in the excerpts below.
On her relationship with The Dream these days.
You know what, her father and I have definitely–we’re in a really great place. He and I have grown to this really great place, this partnership as far as parenting now. And he trusts me. At the end of the day, I’m Violet’s mom and I want the best for her. And he understands, he knows for me, I know the ins and outs, the ups and down of being in the spotlight.
He’s got a beautiful wife and we all get along.
Her family not liking him initially
When we first got married, honestly, it was hard. At first, I think it was because I went on this whirlwind romance. I just left and just enjoyed— I had the time of my life. And honestly, I think my family wasn’t ready for it. We were very codependent on each other and all of a sudden this guy comes along…They were like he’s just another artist. Here goes Tina.
Her relationship with Lil Wayne…is he her boyfriend?
We doing this? He’s my man crush everything. How about that? Is that an answer?
Do you sleep with him at night?
Oooo We’re in the studio late at night. We’re at a skate park..how about that?
So you and Lil Wayne are sometimes together…It’s not a full boyfriend but a sometimes thing.
Balks Well, I mean, girl, don’t put that out like that. We have great chemistry and we have a really great involvement in each other’s lives. And I did want to protect that as well, like my daughter. I think sometimes that if you just give it all out to the world…
You’re on reality tv.
I know but it’s sexy to have a sense of mystique. We want a second season huh?
And then she talked about Karrueche and Chris being back together–and the fact that they’ve always been together. Figures.
Take a look at Christina Milian’s full interview with Wendy Williams and let us know what you think about her very coy response to the Lil Wayne questions.
Karrine Steffans Reminds Christina Milian Who Lil Wayne Really Belongs To: “Be Careful Not To Claim A Man Who Belongs To The World”
If you didn’t know by now, Karrine Steffans is pretty much head-over-heels in love with Lil Wayne. She has made this clear on more than one occasion, including through a variety of channels. For instance, she wrote the book, How To Make Love To A Martian, and wrote a thorough essay about their complicated love, which she posted on her blog, to say things like this:
He may not be all mine, he may not be the best, but he’s here even when I’m not at my best. We say things, we do things, we hurt one another, other people hurt us but they don’t matter and our wounds heal when we’re together…
I don’t care where he’s been and he cares nothing of where I was the second before I fall into his arms. I don’t share in his world and he doesn’t participate in mine. We create our own where only we live, love, and know.
And when I am broken into a million pieces, it is he who makes me whole, who picks me up from the floor and reminds me he provides a greater love than that of any other man.
Yeah, she’s in deep…even if he has never publicly said anything of that magnitude (or anything really) about her.
And despite the fact that he is supposed to be happily taking part in something with Christina Milian these days, Steffans doesn’t seem to be phased by all that. Remember: “He may not be all mine, he may not be the best, but he’s here even whenI’m not at my best.” Still, she thought it would be good to let Milian know the real deal.
Milian posted this image earlier this week on her Instagram page, making the rapper her Man Crush Monday, which people refer to as #MCM:
But a few hours ago, Steffans posted this cryptic message on her Instagram page:
But if Steffans was hoping to deter Milian from being excited about her…thing with Lil Wayne, that’s not going to happen. Especially since Milian has already acknowledged the reality that the rapper does, in a way, belong to “the world.” If you’ll recall, a woman posted a picture on Instagram of Milian, Toya Wright, Nivea, Lauren London and Sarah Vivian (the mother of one of his sons) with the caption, “These hoes love Wayne!!!#IJS” The person tagged Milian in the photo and didn’t expect her to respond, but when she did, the star said, “Sho do.”
Clearly there is just something fantastic about Lil Wayne that I’m not seeing…
