AceShowbiz - Christina Milian hacked into Nick Cannon's phone for a month before she called it quits with him. The 37-year-old singer/actress opened up about how she found out the rapper/actor being unfaithful to her via his text messages during an interview with Justin Sylvester for E! News' digital series "Just the Sip".
When asked if she was "good at breaking into phones," the "AM to PM" singer replied, "One time I did, and I succeeded at it." The Cuban American performer, who starred opposite Nick in 2003's teen comedy film "Love Don't Cost a Thing", continued, "When I was dating Nick Cannon, the password somehow worked on the first check and I was right and the next thing you know, I was reading for like a month. I was reading messages."
She went on sharing, "I was stuck in Romania. I had time. I cannot bust him when I am away. I need to bust him in person so in the meantime, I'm going to get my intel, make sure this is for real for real and it was for real so it was enough."
Asked why she waited for a month before confronting her then-boyfriend about it, Christina admitted that she had a hard time imagining her life without her "first love." She explained, "We were just so close that I think at that time, I couldn't deal with the idea that if we ended up breaking up, I wasn't going to get to see him again."
"So I wanted to be able to see him in person, go over it -- not like it would change anything -- but part of me was like, he was kind of like my first love at that time," she added. "It was unreal that it was happening. He was living at my house, everything. It was just like, 'Wait, under my roof this is happening?' It just kind of blew me away."
Despite his dishonest way during their relationship, Christina doesn't hold grudge against Nick. "When I look at it now, I'm like -- I mean, not that it's right because I don't think it's right for anybody because I was doing good -- but, you know, it is what it is. And obviously, it wasn't meant to be," she said. "And I'm sure he's maybe changed his ways. I'm sure. We all grow up."
Nick previously apologized to Christina for what he did to her at the time. "If I didn't say it before, I do apologize," the former "America's Got Talent" host said during a radio interview in 2012. "I'm sorry for the things that I did. We was young. I was young, I was silly."
Christina and Nick began dating in 2003 and broke up in 2005. The "Whatever U Want" hitmaker went on to date and marry musician The-Dream in September 2009, but they separated only three months later and their divorce was finalized in 2011. As for "The Masked Singer" host, he was married to Mariah Carey from 2008 until they separated in 2014. They were officially divorced in 2016.
