Christina Milian Just Let A Major Secret Slip About Her Relationship With Lil Wayne

Once you say that, there's no taking it back.

Last summer, days after being spotted holding hands with Lil Wayne at the ESPY Awards, Christina Milian didn't rush to confirm their relationship: "We make music together," she said.

These days, she's not so tight-lipped.

"He's the sweetest; I love him," she told Big Boy on Real 92.3 in Los Angeles -- before catching herself, surprised that she let those three words slip for the world to hear.

The radio host gave her a chance to back away. "So, do you love Lil Wayne?"

She had no such plans, though. "I just said it!" she said. "I do. I do love him."

That's beautiful stuff, guys.

Though they collaborated on "Start a Fire" in November, the two have kept their relationship mostly behind closed doors, aside from a live performance and some paparazzi photos here and there. The singer says that's just the way they are.

"Honestly, he's not a public kind of guy; he's not a public figure," she said. "If you look at his Twitter, he tweets every now and then. He just started an Instagram. You don't really see him out much -- he really is like: studio, skatepark, eat, studio, skatepark."

She said she's tried skating herself, but is no good, so she'll just go hang out at the park while he skates.

Now that is love.
