The-Dream Says Christina Requested Pickles And A Cow While Preggers

It's no secret that mothers-to-be tend to crave bizarre combinations during their pregnancy. The-Dream says his wife, Christina Milian, was no different, but probably had the most unusual demands.

"That woman wanted everything. Pickles, a building, the ice-cream factory, a cow, a train set, a cloud, a song," Dream says with a laugh. "She was really funny when she was pregnant." 

The R&B couple's one-month-old daughter, Violet, bares a striking resemblance to her father, which Dream says runs deeper than looks. "Violet is just like me: cool. She thinks, though. When you look at her you can tell she’s thinking, 'What the fuck did I get myself into out this womb? These motherfuckers are crazy. And who the hell is this bitch?' [laughs] She doesn't cry a lot, she's just a tiny quiet character," he says. 

Wednesday, Us Weekly revealed photos of Milian with her newborn sans daddy Dream. Why the absence? "I don’t deal with those types of things. Most of anything that gets shot... that’s Christina’s world," he says. "I’ve never been into tabloids or blogs. Before I met her I wasn’t even paying attention to that shit. Now I’m like whatever. [Those things] can just influence you in the wrong way and put you in a certain mood. I don’t give a fuck though. Blogs didn’t get 'Umbrella' written." 

Dream, who has four children in total (three with ex-wife Nivea), says he always planned for a huge family and would love to have even more kids. "I’ll probably end up with eighty kids some type of way. They're like little people with little personalities. I love them... always wanted a big family," he says. "I grew up by myself, my mother passed in ’92, so I was still staying in my grandfather’s house and grew up as a single child, dealing with his crazy self. That's why I like having a lot of people around. So when I had the power, it was about building something so even if doesn’t start [with me], I’ll just influence my children to make children. So it starts and stays this way so you’re never forgotten."

As for his wife's fourth album, Elope, which was being worked on before Violet's birth, Dream says to expect another project from Milian first. "She’s paused a little bit on the music side because she has more movie stuff now. She’s also dealing with some personal family stuff with her mom and her sisters. So she’s kind of in that world with things she’s trying to put together before she steps back into working [on the album]."

Tory Lanez Sued For Alleged Attack In Miami Nightclub

Tory Lanez is facing legal trouble over an alleged altercation that went down inside Miami’s LIV nightclub last year. Christopher “Prince” Harty, an up-and-coming artist and Miami promoter who appeared on Love & Hip-Hop: Miami claims that Lanez attacked him last November.

The onetime reality star alleges that Lanez, along with his entourage and security team, punched and attacked him in the nightclub. According to reports, Prince claims to have suffered blunt force trauma to his head, neck, and chest, in addition to contusions, bruises and anxiety, as a result of the incident. He is suing for unspecified damages.

“They backed me into a corner, and once I was there, they started stomping on me, jumping me,” he recalled to NBC Miami.

He believes that the friction stemmed from an Instagram post about music. “They felt that I was insinuating that they stole the record from me, and I was just like, no, I would never do that, that was never my intention. I had no issue with him at all.”

A portion of the incident was captured on cellphone video. Prince stated that he knew Lanez prior to the run-in, and helped get him into clubs before.

His attorney, Marwan Porter of Porter Law Firm, called the violent incident “a chronic problem” with Lanez who is accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July. The 28-year-old recording artist has yet to publicly address either incident.

Cardi B Opens Up About Filing For Divorce From Offset

Cardi B took to Instagram Live on Friday (Sept. 18) to air out a few things about filing for divorce from Offset.

The Bronx rapper made it clear that she didn’t file for divorce as a publicity stunt to promote her upcoming album. “I’m not doing it for clout and on top of that I don’t need stunts to sell music,” she said. “I’m not [trying to] brag but don’t ever say I’m doing anything for clout. My first album is three-times platinum and I didn’t need no stunts to do that. My [“Wap”] single is no. 1 worldwide why would I need stunts to sell music? I don’t need stunts — [especially] when it comes to family — to sell anything, so don’t play yourself.”

As for the reason for the divorce filing, the estranged couple simply grew apart. “Nothing crazy out of this world happened, sometimes people really do grow apart. I been with this man for four years. I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man…sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments and the build up. You get tired sometimes and before something happens, you leave.”

“I just wanna' be a free bird,” Cardi said after questioning whether people secretly want infidelity to be the reason for the split.

“I am the f**king clout,” she added. “I never needed anything. I never needed no stunts to sell sh*t.Why would I need anything to sell my next album?”

Speaking of the new album, Cardi has been indecisive about choosing her next single because “WAP” did so well. “That means that my second single has to be even better.”

Towards the end of her venting session, Cardi reiterated that she’s focusing on her work, and revealed that she's starting new business for her daughter Kulture.
