Christina Milian and Lil Wayne, who were in a celebrity relationship with each other since July 2014, have decided to part ways. According to UsMagazine.com, the famous couple sight busy schedules as the reason for their separation. This is not the first break-up for the newly single celebrity exes .Just a few months ago, Milian told reporters, “I’m so inspired by the relationship that I’m in that it’s definitely an experience. It’s that careless, hopeless, romantic love — that feeling of ‘I will do anything for you.”

These celebrity exes are keeping things civil. How do you keep the drama out of your relationship with your ex?

Cupid’s Advice:

They’re called an ex for a reason so don’t let them distract you from your real happiness. Remaining friends, or at least acquaintances, with your ex is challenging but definitely not impossible. Cupid has three tips to help you keep life with your ex drama-free:

1. Set boundaries: Make it clear what are appropriate forms of communication, if communication is welcomed, and when. Don’t let them become over-bearing and always make sure they know it’s a friendly relationship, not romantic.

2. Treat them with respect: This one is hard, especially if you had a nasty break-up, but by showing you are an adult and want to move on they will respect you back. Treating them with negative feelings will only promote more negative feelings and actions to come out.

3. Think before you speak: Don’t let unsaid feelings or thoughts from your relationship come out and don’t make them feel guilty. You broke up for a reason so don’t fuel the fire and say things you might regret.
