It’s not a story you hear very often, but such is their fairy tale.
The singer, whose real name is Alecia Moore, opened up to Redbook magazine about what went into bringing them back together after that 2008 split… and, yes, it involved lingerie.
"Eleven months after we broke up, he asked me to fly to Las Vegas to perform on New Year's Eve at his club,” she told the magazine. “I wanted to see him. And I looked hot. There's something about breaking up with someone -- you just look hotter than you ever did before. I will never look as good as I did those six months after we broke up. Never!”
The artist, now 33, used her signature self-confidence to her advantage and made a bold move.
“After sound check I told him that he needed to come to my room,” she continued. “I had made him a photo album of all the cards he had ever given me, of all the photos of our entire relationship. I spent months on this album. On the last page, I pasted a photo of me from a really bad movie I made years ago with my neck slit and blood everywhere. Next to it I wrote, 'This is me without you.' On the next page, there was a picture of a baby. And I wrote: 'The rest is unwritten.' The divorce papers that we never signed were behind that page. I was like, 'The rest is up to you.'”
