"I definitely was shocked like everybody else," Christina Milian, 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," says the singer and actress. “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."

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."
