Rumors are mounting that Nivea and her husband The-Dream are heading for divorce.
The couple have been married for nearly 3 years and have a 2-years-old daughter together named Navy Talia.
Words got around for a short while that since The-Dream's recent success, he's been acting a fool with a number of young women and that Nivea finally had enough of that.
In a statement issued to the press, Nivea confirmed the separation, saying "I am also sorry to have to report the news of our separation. It is however a mutual decision for the both of us. We see this as an attempt to try and maintain the friendship we've developed since our marriage and also to allow growth for myself as well as him. Unfortunately I was not prepared for partnership or even real life for that matter. I am completely and truly grateful and thankful to God for sending him into my life and to him for everything that he has done for me and my family and that includes monetarily as well as spiritually and mentally, especially for myself, which was never his responsibility in the first place."
She went on adding, "None of you are aware of the real me and I plan to make that as clear as possible on this next album. I come from a sad and scary past that I am still in the process of overcoming and growing past, thanks to the man I love and always will. This is truly the only person I've ever known or heard of that is incredibly loving, passionate, wise, psychic, wise, creative, genius, and many more things that I could never put into words. I don't feel it is fair for neither of us, especially him, to continue this never-ending battle of the minds that he and i have continued for long enough. I want nothing more than for him and I to be happy. His happiness is all i want, for I could never repay him for what he has endured by being my friend, partner, and husband."
No words yet from The-Dream concerning their separation.
Aside from her personal life, Nivea is having the international version of her third album "Animalistic," primarily produced by The-Dream and released in Japan in November 2006, hit the stores in 2008.
