Christina Milian said she was caught off guard upon hearing news that her ex-boyfriend, Nick Cannon, married Mariah Carey within weeks of meeting each other earlier this year.
“I definitely was shocked like everybody else,” the actress-singer, who dated her ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing’ costar in 2005, tells Rap-Up magazine in its Winter 08/09 issue, on newsstands Dec. 30.
“I was like, ‘Really?’ It just seemed like a weird match,” she adds. “But I was happy for him. I always feel like Nick works hard to get what he wants, whether that be women – that’s how he got me.”
Milian, 27, says she and Cannon “were so young” when they were together. She hasn’t spoken to Cannon since he started dating Carey. But looking back on their relationship, Milian says she has no ill feelings or regrets.
“He’s a beautiful person,” she says. “Regardless of what I felt in the past at the time, I actually forgive him and I’m very much over that.”
