In 2015, Christopher rose to prominence after joining season two of the VH1 show Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, which followed his tribulations as a gay rapper in the homophobic hip hop business. He also appeared on the cover of the Los Angeles Times and on the nationally syndicated Wendy Williams Show in 2016 because of his role.

Early Age and Bio
Milan Christopher was born in Chicago, Illinois, on 28 February 1984. Due to his uncle’s marriage to the daughter of Motown music magnate Berry Gordy, he has also been known as Milan Christopher Gordy. As of 2021, he is 37 years old.
Christopher spent his early years in the Chicago south side and developed a strong love for music and singing.
Christopher is one of the first artists of color to represent the LGBT community on the VH1 reality series Love & Hip Hop. However, his appearance in the show drew him into the center of several controversies. The black male rappers’ community thought of him as the biggest hip hop and rap disgrace.
He even received multiple death threats and hate messages. “They say very evil things like that I’m going to go to hell because I’m gay, and that I’m an abomination to God, and some people even send death threats saying they’ll kill me or that they wish my mother had aborted me,” he said to Forbes in January 2016.
Christopher is an openly gay American rapping star. In 2016, he was romantically involved with The Broom Wedding actor, Miles Brock. However, the pair broke up the same year.
Following his separation from Miles, there were several rumors of him dating American model and actress Moniece Slaughter. The rumor confused his fans and followers about his sexuality as gay or bisexual. However, Christopher later clarified his relationship with Moniece as just good friends through his Instagram.
To wipe off the rumors completely, he was linked with reality show star EJ Thompson, also popularly recognized as the son of NBA icon Magic Thompson. Christopher and EJ Thompson also appeared together at the 48th Gala Vanguard Awards organized at the LGBT Center in 2017. But again, neither of them has yet completely confirmed their relationship status.
In 2017, Christopher made it to news headlines worldwide for his bold photoshoot with Paper magazine. The photos include his completely naked pictures exposing his full frontal.
He spoke of his daring actions with VH1 in 2017 and said, “I think I have a nice body and I think it’s art and I just think that it should be celebrated like they celebrate women’s bodies.”
