The-Dream Opens Up About His Divorce From Christina Milian, Suicidal Thoughts

The singer-songwriter speaks on how his marriage problems have inspired better music.

The-Dream has had a tumultuous personal life as of lately, with a public divorce from Christina Milian and him revealing his suicidal thoughts on his website. Speaking with, the singer-songwriter explained that his divorce has had a positive effect on his music and deepened the emotional depth.

“It’s just allowed me to be more real. I’d rather be the bad guy than anybody else be the bad girl because I can handle it. It’s a bad thing that two people can break up, but the truth of the matter is that it happens all the time for different reasons. But what’s wrong with a public breakup is that they never really know the truth. And I won’t be the person who says it. I’m not going to be that type. If something breaks, it’s not something to celebrate.”

He also addressed his suicidal thoughts, revealed in an open letter to fans. He explains that it’s “just how my mind works,” and that he’s now in a much better place.

“I think it was just how my mind works. You have so many things rushing through your mind and I was trying to figure out how to make it stop. It’s easy to look at someone and say there’s 80,000 different ways for you to deal with it. No. Maybe for you, but me having to one, be in control of every aspect of my life and two, loving people how I do and being so thoughtful… when certain things are out of control, if it’s the type of personality that I have, you start to lean towards the best way to make it end. Like what stops this for not only me, but everyone?”

    I love hhdx commenters. They are a constant reminder that I'm not nearly as dumb as I could be. If there was ever a definition of a real ass nigga, it's this dude. And what's funny is dudes always want to claim to be so hard all the time that it's a weakness to show a softer side. I congratulate Dream, it takes a strong dude to admit somethin like this publicly in a world of judgemental hypocrites. Maybe these niggas have never been in love as hard as he was, but you meet the right woman, crazy shit is bound to happen. And just because he banged some other chick dont mean he didnt love Milian. Means he's a regular guy.

    But this nigga was caught cheating, wasn't he? Man it really doesn't matter. This nigga is a soft pudding ass bitch. Go take your estrogen and wack music the hell on to the land of thataway, you simp. Just cause a bitch is fine doesn't mean she isn't a bustdown. And apparently this chick is a bustdown.
