Christina Milian revealed on Tuesday’s episode of Christina Milian Turned Up that an ex-boyfriend once held a loaded gun to her head. The singer says she shared the shocking story to bring awareness to domestic violence issues and encourage other women in similar situations to seek help.
“So I was 17, going into 18, and I met a boy and he had this sarcasm about him that I just thought was super funny,” she explained to author Tanya Williams on the show. “But that sarcasm turned out to be something a little bit more dark, and I had no idea what I was getting myself into.”
“He literally put a bullet in the gun and pointed it at my face. Staring down the barrel of a gun is the scariest thing you could ever experience. It’s not funny, it’s not for the movies. There’s a chance of life or death in one click, that’s it.”
Opening up about it is the first step. And admitting to it. You are not stuck. Tell someone. https://t.co/M8ksfgNqUb

That experience led Milian to began promoting an app called Stop-Attack, “an assault-response application for your iPhone.” When activated, the program becomes a “virtual witness to assaults (verbal or physical) capturing moment-by-moment details via video and audio recordings, which are sent directly to secured cloud storage in real time.” The app is currently on the iTunes store for .99 cents. It’s also worth nothing that Christina is a Stop-Attack brand ambassador and equity owner.
As for the crazy ex, the actress says she ran away one day and never called him back.

It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
