Christine Flores (born September 26, 1981), better known by her stage name Christina Milian, is an American singer-songwriter, actress, dancer, and model.
Milian has released three studio albums. Her self-titled debut album was released in 2001, and features the singles "AM to PM" and "When You Look at Me"; both peaked in the top three on the UK Singles Chart. The singer's second studio album, It's About Time (2004), provided her first major US hit "Dip It Low". Milian's third studio album, So Amazin' (2006), produced only one single, "Say I". A month after the release of So Amazin', Milian's representative confirmed that she had left Island Records due to creative differences. Milian signed with Interscope Records in 2009, through which she plans to release her fourth studio album. A single, ballad "Us Against the World", was released in October 2008.

Milian and The-Dream announced their separation on July 12, 2010. Milian has since been cast in the ABC Family Original Movie Christmas Cupid, alongside Ashley Benson and Chad Michael Murray.
In 2011 she had a starring role on an episode of the CBS show CSI; Las Vegas. The episode was titled "All That Cremains" she played alongside Lawrence Fishbourne.
