Recently, reports surfaced that The-Dream cheated on wife Christina Milian after images of him and his assistant, Melissa Santiago, were released to the public. Those images with Dream and Santiago suggested infidelity but now he is claiming that there is more to the story. In a blog post titled “In My Own Words,” The-Dream informed fans that his marriage was a “failure” before those images were taken and that he tried to kill himself as a result of the failed marriage.
“I would love to tell the truth as to why my relationship wasn’t successful,” he wrote. “But today that is between me and Christina. Its easy to say that it’s because of another woman or a new relationship but truthfully, IT’S NOT.”
He also added that he misled others “into thinking everything was fine and okay when we knew problems existed for awhile! I wanted to speak up but we decided it wasn’t for anyone to know. I would NEVER intentionally hurt a soul and everyone around me knows that! There was so much going on in me and Christina’s personal world that I tried to deal with it as delicately as I could and tried to regain my footing. Instead of being direct in order not to cause even more hurt or hurt [some one’s] feelings, I carried the weight in secret!”
After noting that he wouldn’t hurt anyone, he went on to apologize to those who were affected.
“I’m sorry for the embarrassment to everyone involved! If there’s anyone to blame and you can’t fathom this happening, please blame me and me alone for not being upfront! Even though we were trying to overcome personal things between us, I was just simply scared and embarrassed to let everyone know we WERE FAILING and HAVE NOW FAILED!”
The surprising part, to some fans, shows up near the end of the letter. In a candid post, he shares that he tried to commit suicide when thinking of this marriage falling apart.
“I’ve cried about this for months, after interviews, after prayer and I’ve tried to take my own life at a point because of the failure that was looming. But I was reminded by my MOTHER that I am not ‘Superman’ and its okay to lose sometimes…This too shall pass! And everything will be fine!”
