R&B singer Christina Milian and her producer/songwriter/singer husband The Dream have officially split up as noted by a rep for The Dream who confirmed the news to UsMagazine.com earlier today.

“Terius ‘The-Dream’ Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina Milian was unsuccessful. The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter Violet. They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward,” The Dream’s rep told UsMagazine.com.

Official word of the split came shortly after questionable photos of The Dream (real name: Terius Nash) and his assistant Melissa Santiago frolicking on the beach in the Caribbean hit the Internet. A few hours after the pics made their way to the web (and before the split was officially announced), Christina Milian took to her Twitter and said:

After being spotted out and about together in early 2009 around the time The Dream started working with Christina on a new album project that never saw the light of day, the couple initially denied that they were dating. But only a few months later in July, Nash, 32, and Milian, 28, were engaged and were married by September of the same year.

Milian gave birth to their daughter Violet back in February of this year.

We don’t know exactly behind their break up but based on the current circumstances, this divorce battle should be pretty interesting to watch. So many questions, so few answers.

Here we go again… Who’s got the popcorn??? (LOL!)
