Even though I sometimes think it, I’ve been very good in the past few years not to say things like, “what are they doing together” or “why in the world is she with that hobgoblin!?” when it seems that a relationship compatibility imbalance may be afoot between a newly revealed couple that look more like a shopper and a deliveryman than a new girlfriend and boyfriend. Such was the case last year when I began seeing Christina Milian and The Nightmare Dream gallivanting all over God’s creation. Whether they were pool side, vaca’ing or meandering hand in hand in the city with shopping bags in tow, no one could deny that the two were an item, albeit the proverbial odd couple.
Their burgeoning romance resulted in what many termed a quickie wedding, followed by news that the newlyweds were expecting. Although I again was left to scratch my head and wonder how anyone thought this union was a good idea, I ultimately put on my “live and let live” hat and kept it moving.
Well, fast forward to this latest bit of news that The Dream was caught in a compromising position with a woman not his wife, his petition for divorce, and Christina’s allegations that he cheated on her while she was pregnant with their daughter and it would seem that my concerns may not have been so unfounded after all. But although many like me can sit behind a computer or in the comfort of our own homes and say things like “I knew it” and “I told you so” about the staus of Dreamstina, we have to realize that they both are still real people with real feelings in a really messed up situation.
Apparently however, radio personality and former DJ Funkmaster Flex didn’t get that memo. He instead took to The Twitter (for reason’s only God knows) to weigh in on The Dream/Christina situation:
“Christina Milian is finished out here….Dream just wrapped you up.”
Huh? Are The Dream and Flex friends? Do they braid each other’s back hair and tell tales of loves lost and jump-offs found? I mean, why else would he take to such a public forum to deliver two cents from his change purse that no one asked him for? What’s funny is that when Christina discovered Flex’s reckless behavior on twitter and addressed him about it, his tweets began to sound less lion and more lamb:
“I was jokin. I will give you a break. wasn’t personal. ps i don’t agree with what the dream did. love to your little one.”
The irony in all of this is that he’d classify another musician as “finished” (and not because she is without talent, but because her spouse allegedly cheated). Um, yeah. Hey pot, when is the last time you put out an album? Starred in a movie? Modeled anything? I guess the reality of knowing that “The Tunnel” days are long over and that no one is checking for him anymore made Flex jump at the opportunity to be relevant again; even if his “joking” opinion further relegated him to pariah status.
