Christina Milian made her first public appearance yesterday following the news of  break up of marriage  to The-Dream. Interestingly, the singer – who was snapped while buying milk formula for the couple’s 6 month old Violet, was still wearing her wedding ring.  The-Dream announcing their separation earlier this week, after pictures of him getting freaky whith his assistant.

There’s no doubt the situation is most unfortunate for Milian, 28, who was reportedly ‘blind-sided’ by Dream’s announcement, after believing that they were working through their issues. That said, the moral of story goes as thus…never mix work with play!

By no means should blame be apportioned to Christina (this solely on the basis of what we know). However Ms. Milian’s continued blending of the private and professional was bound to end in disaster – as time has shown over and over again in the entertainment industry. Indeed, she worked Nick Cannon on the movie ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’ only to go on and date him. He is now married to Mariah Carey. She teamed up with producers Cool & Dre for her ‘So Amazin’‘ LP, going on to date Dre – a relationship which fizzled along with the album. And now The-Dream drama – the story of which follows a similar narrative, only with more serious consequences. A broken (less than 9 month) marriage, raising a child alone, and both an album and record deal which tie her almost exclusively to Tubby Terius.
