The 44-year-old rapper allegedly made the confession to members of his team amid his 2016 Saint Pablo Tour, though he didn’t specify when they allegedly fling happened.
The source also claimed that West shared ‘graphic’ details about his affairs with other women during his marriage to Kim Kardashian, 40.
Old fling? Kanye West, 44, allegedly bragged about a fling with Christina Milian, 39, while on his 2016 Saint Pablo tour, a source told The Sun on Monday
West apparently didn’t clarify whether the allegedly hook with Milian occurred during his marriage, or if it preceded the start of his relationship with Kardashian in 2012 or their wedding in 2014.
The source claimed that the rapper’s mental state appeared fragile at the time of his confessions, and they described him as ‘flipping out.’
‘Kanye was blurting it all out during the conversation which was only witnessed by members of his team,’ they explained.
‘He was opening up about cheating on Kim and freaking out, and then he suddenly announced he hooked up with Christina Milian.
‘Kanye was boastful and saying how good the sex was, albeit very brief after a night out at a club,’ the source claimed.
Cheating: Kanye allegedly told his team on the tour, but didn’t say if the tryst was before or during his relationship with Kim Kardashian. He also allegedly told them he had cheated on her with other women; seen in February 2020 in Beverly Hills
‘He didn’t go into detail about when and where it was, but mentioned Nick Cannon and bro code, as if he didn’t really want him to know.’
They added, ‘It seemed it was all in the past, but he just wanted to spill his secrets, he was getting really manic.’
DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for West and Milian for comment.
West’s alleged comment about Cannon may suggest the potential fling with Milian happened prior to his relationship with Kardashian, as Cannon and Milian dated from 2003 to 2005.
During her relationship with the Masked Singer host, Milian joined West on tour in 2004.
According to the insider, the rapper’s entourage didn’t seem troubled by his confession.
‘His team were laughing and didn’t really know what to say, in a way it wasn’t too surprising, just Kanye being Kanye,’ they claimed.
‘I don’t know how Christina would feel though if she knew he was going around talking about bedding her, but at least he was complimentary.’
They concluded: ‘Nobody knows if Kim is aware they hooked up, but it’s clear they were close for years and worked together.’

In addition to opening for Kanye and Usher on their 2004 Truth tour, Milian also collaborated with the rapper and producer for her 2008 song Diamonds.
In an interview with MTV News shortly before the song’s release, the singer noted that West only took about a day to come up with melodies for the track and to record his vocals.
‘I’m really excited about that. I think he’s an awesome artist,’ she said of her collaborator.
‘It kind of just happened. We happened to be in the same studio,’ she explained. ‘I asked him to come in, and he heard it and got on it immediately. I’m glad I got to have him a part of my album.’
Earlier this month, Page Six quoted multiple sources close to West who claimed the lyrics on his new track Hurricane that detail infidelities are autobiographical.

‘The song is in a way his testimony of everything he did wrong and taking accountability for their marriage breakdown,’ one source said.
‘Here I go actin’ too rich / Here I go with a new chick / And I know what the truth is / Still playin’ after two kids / It’s a lot to digest when your life always movin’,’ the hitmaker raps during part of the song.
Another insider clarified that the ‘new chick’ does not refer to Irina Shayk, whom West briefly dated after the dissolution of his marriage to Kardashian.
Another insider told The Sun: ‘It was no secret among those who worked closely with Ye that he’d cheated after Saint was born.
‘On his Saint Pablo Tour, he was flipping out in front of his team, confessing to sleeping with girls behind Kim’s back,’ they continued.
‘He even said he’d been f***ing groupies and went into insane detail about his sex sessions, it was very graphic, his language was unreal.
Bad time: The source claimed West was ‘flipping out’ during his confessions, and they said new members of his crew were ‘left stunned.’ They said he appeared to be ‘very manic’; seen in February 2020
‘Those who know him well, they were sitting head in hands and laughing nervously, while crew members who had just joined the tour were left stunned,’ they claimed.
‘Nobody could believe what he was saying in front of everybody, it seemed he was having an episode and was very manic.
‘He was later babbling nonsense and people were trying to calm him down and get him under control.
‘It was actually heartbreaking to watch because it was clear he was in a very bad place and needed help.’
Since then, West and Kardashian have both revealed he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which can cause suffers to switch between periods of mania or less-severe hypomania and bouts of depression.
The Monster rapper’s 2016 tour, which featured headline-grabbing tirades from the stage against Kanye’s friend Jay-Z and statements in support of Donald Trump, ended with West canceling dates and being hospitalized for what was described as ‘exhaustion’ at the time.
Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February of this, following a tumultuous 2020 in which she opened up about her husband’s mental health struggles and he launched a doomed presidential campaign.
The couple share four children: North, eight; Saint, five; Chicago, three; and Psalm, two.
