TELLING HER STORY

Christina Milian Reveals She Was Once Held at Gunpoint by an Ex-Boyfriend

Christina Milian has come forward and disclosed she was a victim of domestic violence as a teenager.

The "Dip It Low" singer said the relationship started innocently enough when she was 18, but her 19-year-old boyfriend - who she doesn't name - slowly showed more signs of jealousy and abuse.

"He'd say, ‘If you leave me, I'll bomb your mom's house,’” the 34-year-old told the Huffington Post. “He always made references to his gang relationships.”

His manipulation continued and moved on to actual physical violence.

“When we had arguments he would choke me and kick me,” she said. “I stayed with him in a house in Laurel Canyon Hills, with no one around, and there were times when I ran half naked, with no phone, out of the house after him beating me up. I would run. Then, I would see his car lights coming at me, to run me over.”

As if that wasn't horrendous enough, she's said the abuse culminated with a terrorizing evening when he put a loaded gun at her head.

"One time he played Russian roulette on me,” she said. “He put one bullet in a gun and pointed it at my face."

While she was able to diffuse the situation, Christina finally got the strength to remove herself from the abusive relationship.

"My mom got me a ticket with the help of the record label to go to New York and spend time with family and get back to work. I cried the night I decided to leave. The next morning, I took the first flight to New York and asked my mom to have all my numbers and information changed before I landed."

 

 

Christina was able to move on and enjoyed various healthier relationships with Nick Cannon, The Dream, Jas Prince and Lil Wayne.

She is now trying to use her traumatic story to help other women who may be in the same situation.

“I’ve been holding on to this for too long,” she said. “I lived in fear for a long time. I'm here to save someone. I really want to help other people, especially the youth.”
