Melanie Fiona's HOT Ex-Boyfriend Adam Rodriguez Speaks On Their Breakup+Tichina Arnold Talks Her Engagement & Role On "Happily Divorced"

Melanie Fiona may be focusing on dropping her sophomore album, The MF Life, on March 20th, but what's making the press is her recent breakup.  With a hot actor we didn't even realize she was dating.  Deets inside on what HE had to say about the breakup, plus Tichina Arnold dishing on her engagement and tv role on "106 & Park"....

Remember when the sexy "CSI: Miami" actor Adam Rodriguez appeared in Melanie Fiona's debut video "It Kills Me?"  Well it looks like they took their steamy relationship off-screen as well because the two have reportedly broken up after being in a relationship for a while.  Who knew?!

A source told the NY Post: “They kept their relationship under wraps. They’d avoided attending events together or even being photographed when possible."

Adam's rep confirmed to the Post that he and Mel broke up in the past month, but the split was “very nice” and they’re still friends. “Adam still cares about her,” the rep said.

And if you're wondering if all those songs about cheating and heartbreak Mel sings about on her new LP ("4AM," "Wrong Side of Love") are about their relationship, Adam's rep says they're not:

“Adam knows about all of those songs, but they were written months ago — they were very happy together.”

Oh wells.  Melanie's been looking fabulous lately so we don't doubt she'll be bouncing right back.  She recently dished about heart break during her "Breakfast Club" interview saying:

"...you just get to that point where you are so in love with somebody that you are just willing to accept all of the things that they do to you," she added. "It’s really not okay and I know that I consider myself to be a strong intelligent woman. So when emotions get the best of you, it’s really hard to break that cycle but when you do, then you got to find strength in it and put it in music. You let other people know that you’re not immune to it."

"The minute I don’t feel like I’m respected as an equal in that relationship," she says. "That’s a wrap."

 

And in happier news, Tichina Arnold made her "106 & Park" debut last night and showed off her new engagement ring.  She's engaged to her man Rico Hines. And even kicked a freestyle after talking about her second season role on Fran Drescher's hit "Happily Divorced" sitcom.  Check the video:

I knew they were dating. Adam

I knew they were dating. Adam loves the sistahs (of all shades.) and Mel is beautiful. However they were photographed at events together so it couldn't have be en kept under wraps too much.

I'm Female, 22, and just this Christmas had a brief encounter with a mature man. It was wonderful. We met via internet dating on this site: ---[Mi XedM A TCHing. C óM ]-It's where black white sing-les looking for someone to enjoy their lifestyle with. Come in and stay a while. Complete your profile. Post a message, a picture of yourself and check out the photo galleries. Give it a try, you will find someone you like here - ;) a good way to meet like-minded people, and he actually approached me first. It just so happens I like black man and he likes whtie woman around my age. We had an amazing day and later on he joined me at a hotel. It was like a fantasy come true. Amazing company, amazing sex too and a really warm and loving man. He will turn 36 this month, and my goodness what a connection we had that day. ????Admires????????Admires????

Luvs me some Melanie Fiona:

Luvs me some Melanie Fiona: she is very talented and very low-key, as a *lady*/fab chick should be. I ain't mad at her for dating that FINE ASS actor: and I respect the fact that SHE respects herself. We've all been a fool at some point: the goal is to STOP being one. Happy for Tichina Arnold's engagement too.

Keri why does she have to be

Keri why does she have to be lame to date a light skinned guy. someone sounds bitter and has been hurt in the past. did the light skinned guys look over you when you were growing up. Grow color struck bitch and get something with substance on your mind. It is so sad that it is 2012 and some black people are still hung up on the color issue. very ignorant comment. get it together boo.

What was the rep going to say

What was the rep going to say about his client. "Yes, they dated, but he wanted to keep it on the DL so he could continue having sex with other young hot chicks. He cheated the whole time they were dating. She got tired of it, wrote a bunch of songs about it, and now they hate each other"

Hmmmm, they were secretly

Hmmmm, they were secretly dating and now they are publically broken up????? Sounds like someone is trying to sell some CD's. This dude is very attractive and so is Melanie, but eveytime he was seen on TMZ and they asked him if he was with anyone he said he was not. I don't believe this story, i think they are just fuck friends and she's trying to sell some CD's and they are going along with this media thing to gain publicity....Sad!!
