Christina Milian defends herself after being labelled a 'gold digger', writes essay...

When a woman dates rich men who just so happens to be those she's worked closely with, the 'gold digger' tag will always be attached. So in that regard, Christina Milian has done herself no favours. It was always going to bite her further in the ass now that she's allegedly dating her Young Money boss Lil Wayne. Christina went into rant mode on Instagram after one chick called her a 'gold digger.' Check out her lengthy rant inside.
She wrote:
"GIRL WHO TOLD YOU HE BOUGHT ME A CAR? Or my mama? Get it right boo I BOUGHT MINE AND MY MOTHER’S. So you have assumed wrong AND/or you have been misinformed. I’m tired of ANYONE accusing my hard work and money or ANYTHING that I do as someone else buying for me. I BOUGHT it myself. I work honey. A Lot. I SAVE. And I spend wisely. Tell your friends. Your grand kids and anyone else. I’m so over hearing that bs “GOLD DIGGER” comment. I am far from that. HARD WORK PAYS OFF. I am built to work. I love what I do and I don’t expect anyone to count what I got cause y’all just don’t know. But seriously anyone claiming that statement is wrong. I could list billion things I invested into that relationship and others but I don’t have time for that.

I usually keep my mouth shut but as a woman I’m tired of people assuming that when a girl has nice cars, a house, lavish things etc…That it’s because someone else bought it. Matter fact, I’ve literally bought my ex a car but nobody talking about that. AND he kept it…I didn’t ask for it back. A gift is a gift. I'm not worried. I will be blessed beyond. But please get it right. Women get money too. Women will never grow if we don’t break this mentality or keep putting each other down by ASSuming that we can’t take care of OURSELVES, a family and employ others…Male and female. Sorry to go in cause you’re not the first but that B’s comment stuck out like a soar thumb. Not trying to make you the target of an attack but I guess I just had to get real for a second with y’all. Cause that ish drives me crazy." Source: The Shade Room
The rumoured ex is supposedly Nick Cannon who at the time was on the come-up and making strides. Christina probably doesn't need to work because she could easily live off The Dream’s child support payments, as well as that 10% of his publishing (very smart move on her behalf). But she works. Although she's never been as successful as her peers, she has still managed to carve out a respectable career for herself, releasing albums, movies and obtaining several endorsements. She's straight and any woman has the right to defend herself if it's wrongly assumed she's using what's in between her legs to get ahead.
