Days after confirming his separation from wife Christina Milian, The-Dream has written a letter to his fans explaining that the split was not triggered by an affair and that he was so distressed about his marital problems at one point, he considered taking his own life.
"Its easy to say that it's because of another woman or a new relationship but truthfully, IT'S NOT," wrote The-Dream, whose real name is Terius Nash on his website. "I would love to tell the truth as to why my relationship wasn't successful, but today that is between me and Christina.
"I take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for misleading everyone into thinking everything was fine and okay when we knew problems existed for awhile!" The-Dream continued. "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...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."
On Monday (July 12), photos were released that showed The-Dream frolicking in the ocean with his assistant, Melissa Santiago. The hit producer and singer/songwriter released a statement to the media hours later, confirming that he and Milian had gone their separate ways, while Milian wrote on Twitter, "WHATEVER YOU THINK.. BELIEVE IT." Milian was seen out wearing her wedding ring the following day.
"I am Human and people fall in and out of Love all the time... This is Life," added The-Dream in his letter. "Nothing's promised or perfect, neither am I.
"I've always been a Loving Father, Hard Worker, Generous, Stern and Eager to prove myself. My faults are I can be irresponsible and an ass sometimes, but I HAVE NEVER and WILL NEVER be a malicious person or wish harm to anyone, especially those I love or the mother of my child. 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!"
