 Christina Milian and Dream

Christina Milian and The Dream

After a whirlwind romance and getting divorced just ten months after getting married, these two dealt with some drama during their split. The Dream filed divorce papers just nine days before daughter Violet was born and he was rumored to pay Christina an estimated $4 million divorce settlement along with $5k a month in child support. They also came into conflict over Justin Bieber's single "Baby" because  Dream supposedly promised Christina 10 percent of it.

Mike Tyson And Robin Givens

Marrying each other just eleven months after dating, this union may have been doomed from that start. Givens has said that she "lived in fear" of the fighter while Tyson accused Robin of using him for his money. Tyson also claimed he caught Brad Pitt in bed with his wife and that's what ended their union. The end result? A 10 million divorce settlement after only a few months of marriage.

Eddie and Nicole Murphy

After dating for a year and a half, these two had five children and a 13 year marriage. After divorcing in 2006, Nicole was estimated to received a cool one time payment of $15 million.

Kimora Lee and Russell Simmons

This power couple was bound to break up sooner or later.. there can only be one diva per household! After meeting when she was only 17 and he was 35, their marriage lasted eight years and produced two children. Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons had quite the amicable split. Wondering just  how much it cost him? He was ordered to pay out $40k per month in child support ($20,000 for each child) until they turn 19 years of age. Russell does want to get something clear, though.

Nas and Kelis

After getting married in July 2003 after two years of dating, Kelis and Nas had one epic ugly divorce battle. Kelis filed for divorce in May 2009 while seven months pregnant. Nas was reported to pay an estimated $40k per month in spousal and child support (which was later reduced to $25k). The irony? Kelis gave birth to her son a day after the child support and spousal support ruling.

Michael and Juanita Jordan

This was one marriage we thought just might make it. After being married for 18 years, the couple called it quits in 2006. Their split ended up costing the basketball legend an estimated $168 million. Talk about hoop dreams!

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren

After what was known as possibly the biggest payout in celebrity divorce history, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren take the cake on this one. After being married for five years, no one can forget the way these two split. In the divorce settlement in which Tiger quite literally paid for her silence, he was estimated to pay a rumored $750 million in exchange for her to never be able to speak on his infidelity. Fair trade?!

Tinashe Resurfaces With Exciting Message: "I'm Back And Better"

Tinashe fans rejoice! After a hiatus, the Joyride artist resurfaced on Instagram Saturday (Sept. 28), in a brief video expressing that she's “back and better.”

After a tumultuous relationship with her label RCA, the singer-songwriter broke ties with the company. Since then, she's been hibernating in her “cave,” as she puts it.

"Creatively, I just feel like I needed to go through what I went through in order to be the person that I am today and to get back to my roots," she explained. "You pretty much put your heart and soul and emotions into all these songs and then you put them out there for the world to judge and tear down and pick apart. It's terrifying and it can really mess with your head."

In an interview with VIBE, Tinashe expressed how important it is for her to stay true to herself and artistry. “It’s not even necessarily speaking up but coming to your own conclusions yourself and owning your own instincts and trusting in yourself and creative power,” she said. “I think that’s something that is always important to continue to maintain. It’s easy for that sometimes to get derailed, and it’s important to come back to that.”

During her recent statement, she broke down the importance of art and how it should be expressed through individuality and free expression, sans any boxes or limitations. Making people happy through her music is the goal.

"Music and art are supposed to be these wonderful beautiful things that bring people joy and happiness, and that's really why I started making music in the first place—to give people something that means something to them,” she said.

Although Tinashe did not say when fans can expect new music, she did share a snippet of what she’s been working on in the studio in a separate post. “I’m too emotional.”
