Keisha Knight Pulliam isn’t the first celeb to get dumped while pregnant — sad, we know. Here are five other stars who have been left by their spouse or significant other while carrying their child.
Christina Milian: In February 2010, nine days before giving birth to her daughter, Violet, Christina Milian’s then-husband The Dream filed for divorce. Terius Nash, the rapper’s legal name, claimed the marriage between he and the pop star was “irretrievably broken.” The divorce filing came after Dream’s infidelity with his then-assistant, something Milian claims she didn’t know.
“I didn’t know anything,” Milian told “Latina” magazine. “But looking back, my gut was telling me something was off. But I thought I could fix it.”
Lauryn Hill: In 2011, after a long ten-year relationship, Rohan Marley left Lauryn Hill while pregnant with her sixth son. Rohan apparently dumped the singer for Isabeli Fontana shortly before she gave birth to her son. It later, however, came out that Marley was not even the father of Hill’s youngest. She released a statement that read:
“Mr. Marley and I have a long and complex history about which MANY inaccuracies have been reported since the beginning. To speculate without the facts can only cause people to form WRONG conclusions. We both value privacy and for that reason defend and preserve our right to it. Contrary to the numerous reports, Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child. We have had long periods of separation over the years but our five children together remain a joy to both of us. Thanks you for your concern and I appreciate all of the well wishes regarding the birth of my new son.”
Shar Jackson: Jackson, most notably known for her role on “Moesha,” was dumped by Kevin Federline while pregnant with their second child. The pro dancer jumped ship and eventually married Britney Spears in 2004. Spears and Federline went on to have two children together.
In April 2010, Kevin publicly apologized to Char while on an episode of “Celebrity Fit Club.” “I’ve seen her go through so much stuff before the show, and I’m a big part of that,” he said.
“I know I’ve caused you a lot of pain. I’ve been really selfish. I guess I got so wrapped up in all this other s*** that I never really got a chance to sit back and apologize to you. I really do want you to know that I am sorry.”
Tiki Barber’s Ex, Ginny Cha: Former Giants superstar Tiki Barber left his then-wife, Ginny Cha, while she was eight months pregnant. Barber called it quits, filed documents and a short eight days later, married his 24-year-old mistress, Traci Lynn. Adding insult to injury, the athlete even tweeted about his marriage, writing: “Many thanks to the NYC Clerk’s office, especially James Mitchell who married me to my love Traci Lynn Johnson! Excited for the next chapters…”
Heidi Klum: In 2003, while pregnant with their first child together, supermodel Heidi Klum was cheated on by her then-boyfriend, Italian businessman Flavio Briatore, who was having an affair with 19-year-old model Vanessa Hilger. The two split and while pregnant, the beauty moved on to singer Seal.
Honorable Mention, Kelis: In 2009, one month before giving birth to their first child together, Kelis filed for divorce from her rapper husband, Nas. The pair, who married in 2005, wound up calling it quits after Nas was apparently caught cheating. Kelis, however, cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.
