Christina Milian is an American actress, singer, songwriter, and television personality. After her career took off in 2000 with that Def Jam deal, Milian went on to establish herself with charting singles, albums, as well as several notable movies including 2003’s “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”.

In recent years, Milian has built her net worth mostly from her family’s E! reality show “Christina Milian Turned Up”, DJing, TV gigs, and other side ventures. Her net worth is estimated at $4.5 million.

Her Early Life

Christina Milian was born Christine Flores on September 26, 1981, in Jersey City, New Jersey. Milian who is of Cuban descent was raised in Waldorf, Maryland. Her passion for entertainment developed at the early age of 4 and by 9, she was already appearing in commercials for the likes of Honeycomb and Wendy’s.

When she was 13 years old, her mother, with hopes of giving her daughter better prospects in the entertainment industry, moved the family to Los Angeles, leaving their father behind. Shortly after, her parents divorced. In LA, Milian who watched a lot of movies as a child aspired to become an actress. As a result, she got minor roles in some films like “Sister, Sister”, “American Pie”, and “Smart Guy”. She also became a host for Disney Channel.

During this time, she had the chance to meet with some established stars in the music industry.

Career Success

Six years after moving to LA from Maryland, Milian landed her big break – a record deal with Def Jam Records in 2000 which came after she featured on Ja Rule‘s track “Between Me and You”. The song peaked at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100. The following year, Milian co-wrote and performed backup vocals for J Lo‘s track “Play” which was a massive commercial hit. She also released her debut self-titled album the same year.

However, due to several factors including the 9/11 attacks, Milian’s album wasn’t released in the US but in Europe where it enjoyed moderate success. It peaked at #23 in the UK charts, selling over 101,000 copies. The tepidly reviewed album produced two singles “AM to PM” and “When You Look at Me.”

Milian’s second album, “It’s About Time” which was released in 2004 under Island Records was more successful. It spawned the hit single “Dip It Low” which peaked at #2 in the UK receiving a Grammy nomination for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration”. It remains her biggest hit to date. The album though critically panned, managed to sell over 500,000 copies and score Grammy nomination for “Best Contemporary R&B Album.”

During this time, Milian also found success with acting. She landed her debut lead role in the 2003 teen comedy film “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” opposite Nick Cannon (The pair had a brief romance later). Her other films in this period included; “Be Cool” and “Pulse”.

She was left in a wreck after Island Def Jam Records dropped her a week after the release of her third studio album So Amazin’ (2006) which managed to sell only 163,000 copies. The album produced only one single “Say I” ft Young Jeezy.

In a bid to revive her career, Milian signed with several record labels but never released an album. Her would-be Elope album never came to fruition. During this period she married Grammy-winning producer, The-Dream but the short-lived marriage ended after The-Dream’s infidelity. He reportedly paid her $4 million alongside $5,000/month in spousal and child support for their daughter, Violet Madison Nash.

Christina signed with Lil Wayne‘s Young Money in 2012 but their business only produced single collaborations topped off by a short-lived romance. Notwithstanding, Milian kept banking from several films and TV engagements, most notably a role as a Social Media Correspondent for The Voice which lasted from 2011 to 2013. She won an Emmy Award for her role in 2013.
