While we are aware that producer/songwriter/R&B star The-Dream is not the best husband -he split with wife and baby mama Christina Milian amid allegations of cheating- the man can manufacture a pop hit!
He made a bunch of revelations when he dropped by for a Tim Westwood BBC radio interview. The man was nothing if not candid.
He was paid $15 million - no, that's not a typo- to pen Rihanna's early hit "Umbrella."
He split with the lovely and petite Milian because the marriage "was really rushed... You have to suffer the consequences if you're not ready to commit to that."
He did split his royalties for Justin Bieber's "Baby" with her, though! He did so since he declared himself generous, not because she helped him write the song's melody.
Go here to listen to the radio interview.
What do you think of all The-Dream's blockbuster claims?
