Christina Milian's ex pulled a loaded gun on her.
The 34-year-old singer opened up about the terrifying incident, which occurred when she was just 17, during an episode of her E! show 'Christina Milian Turned Up'.
Speaking about her unnamed ex, who was 19 at the time of the attack, she said: "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."
On the same episode, Christina's mother Carmen also spoke about her daughter's abusive relationship.
She said: "You had bruises and you were covering them up all the time. I remember he instilled that fear in you that if you left him he would hurt us and because of that you stayed in it. But like to the point where you know you almost lost your life."
Christina managed to leave her ex in New York and moved to Los Angeles to start a new life.
She has a daughter Violet with The Dream, who she married in 2009 and divorced in 2010,
Christina was also engaged to Jas Prince before splitting in 2014 and she most recently dated Lil Wayne but they ended their relationship earlier this year.
