The-Dream Opens Up About Suicide Attempt
The-Dream recently admitted he tried to commit suicide following his split from Christina Milian.
The rapper – who married the “AM to PM” beauty in September 2009 and has five-month-old daughter Violet with her – has revealed the turmoil he suffered in the months since his relationship with the beautiful pop star ended earlier this year.
He said: “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. This is not to justify anything, it’s true emotion. It’s a real thing that involves real people.”
Earlier this month, the producer-and-rapper – real name Terius Nash – admitted his relationship with Christina ended several months ago, but they only announced their separation after he was spotted on the beach with his assistant Melissa Santiago.
Despite the pictures, Terius is adamant nobody else was involved in their split.
He wrote in his official blog: “I would love to tell the truth as to why my relationship wasn’t successful, but today that is between me and Christina. It’s easy to say that it’s because of another woman or a new relationship but truthfully, it’s not.
“I take full responsibility for misleading everyone into thinking everything was fine and okay when we knew problems existed for a while! 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!”
The rapper also claimed he didn’t want to announce the marriage was over because he was embarrassed and felt like a failure.
He added: “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!”
