Is Monica Already Married To Shannon Brown?

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, January 19, 2011 at 12:00 am.

Word around the way is that Monica has actually already married her fiancé, Los Angeles Laker Shannon Brown.

A reader reached out to blogger Sandra Rose to share the scoop that Monica recently filed for a legal name change out at a DMV in Clayton County Georgia.

In turn the blogger whom Monica routinely reaches out to did some digging on her own.

She reported:

Normally, I would call my good friend, Monica, and ask her to confirm the rumors myself, but I decided to do what other bloggers stopped doing — research the rumors myself.

The rumors are true: Monica and Shannon Brown are indeed married. An official with the NBA also confirmed the marriage, which took place in Los Angeles on November 22, 2010.

A friend of Shannon Brown’s says he is relieved that the news is out because he respects his wife and he has been wearing his wedding band recently. The friend said Shannon and Monica plan to wed officially in front of family and friends (again) in Los Angeles in June.

Should this story hold out – and it sure seems like it will – we’d like to say congrats to the newlyweds!

Monica’s Back on Twitter After a Stalker’s Arrest

Published by Dior Noir on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

When Monica decided she was done with Twitter last month, we assumed it was because she was tired of hearing everyone’s two cents about her getting engaged to Shannon Brown so quickly, or all that chatter about her being pregnant (which she denied). After all she did Tweet, “Too much is being said that I didn’t say and  for a person that believes so strongly in being 100 at ALL times. I just can’t do it.”

Now, just three weeks later, the R&B diva has returned to her page, @MonicaMyLife, singing a different tune. She said yesterday that a stalker is the reason she dipped and now that the person has been arrested, she can Tweet on. Check her comeback Tweets and explanation:

She also replied to one of her followers and said that her stalker ”would see where I was when I would Tweet & send scary things.”  Hmmmm…..Do you think this is the REAL reason why she got off? That sounds like a completely different explanation than she gave when she left. Either way, let this be a teachable moment to us all: stop putting your whole life and all your wherabouts on Twitter and other social networks!  Well, unless you’re a celeb, in which case keep the TMI Tweets coming!

Shannon Brown Rumor Shut Down, Monica Leaves Twitter

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 at 12:00 am.

Despite this officially being one of the happiest periods of her life, mother Monica knows that people stay trying to throw Lawry’s in her lane.

She recently tweeted this cryptic message: “I have a feeling a story full of lies about me is sure to come because someone doesn’t like that I’m happy. It’s not Rocko.”

Speaking of lies, Sandra Rose shut down a rumor that Monica’s fiancée, Shannon Brown, has a wandering baby out there:

According to talk Diva Wendy Williams, Lakers guard has a newborn son and his fiancée Monica knows about it.

I did my own research (unlike a lot of Wendy’s viewers) and I found out that Shannon’s only child, Shannon Christopher Brown, is a 2-year-old. There is no newborn baby.

I don’t think Wendy was being malicious. I think she was just fed bad information.

Anyone can Google this information.

According to Sandra, Shannon’s baby mama, Sharde, has been contacting a lot of blogs and sites trying to stir trouble as she takes Shannon to court for more child support.

The day after that tweet, Monica announced that she will no longer be on Twitter, writing:

Hey there. I want to thank all of u who have been so supportive of myself & family for so many years. I hate to say this, but I will no longer be on twitter.

I love the fact that I am able to speak to my REAL supporters but it has also become a way for people to do malicious things, when my sole intent was to spread positivity. I love u guys dearly and will find ways to stay in touch.

I have dear friends on twitter & team Monica will make sure u have all information on dates etc. Again I love u guys.

But this is better for the protection of my children, my family, fiancé and fans. Too much is being said that I didn’t say and for a person that believes so strongly in being 100 at ALL times. I just can’t do it. I will see all of u guys very soon.

I LOVE U …Take care :)

This might not last too long, but you know, until then…

Monica and Shannon Brown are Engaged!

Published by Dior Noir on Monday, October 18, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

Well, well, well. It seems like only yesterday we were lamenting Monica’s breakup from her boyfriend Rocko and now she’s engaged to her LA Laker boo Shannon Brown!?

The R&B singer confirmed that she’s tying the knot when she Tweeted a  picture of herself wearing a huge diamond sparkler on her engagement finger (word is it’s 10 karats!).

Monica and Shannon first met when they walked down the aisle for her video “Love All Over Me” back in June and started dating shortly after filming the project. Some have already questioned whether the engagement is too rushed but Monica addressed that via Twitter:

We realize people will have their opinions. That’s the way of the world. But we know who we are & who’s we are. We pray 2 an awesome God 2gether. And that is what keeps us strong. So for all my real supporters who are happy for me. I thank u, I love u, & I’m realistic enough about life To know my journey has just begun. I don’t have anything else to say about it 2 people who judge. If u worked on self u wouldn’t even see me.”

I feel like there was a neck roll and finger snap up in those last two sentences.   Okay, Miss Thang! Do you!

Monica’s Ex: Keep My Name Out Of This

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 at 11:50 am.

Monica has all of the men in her life taking to Twitter to write sonnets about her.

First there was new boyfriend, Shannon Brown, and now there’s Rocko, the rapper with whom she has two adorable kids.

Though the two broke up nearly a year ago, they are still linked together. Rocko would like that to end.

Here’s Rocko in his own words:

@Monicamylife and I are life partners.. We have 2 beautiful kids together and I have the utmost respect for her. But just to set the record str8 her and I broke up October 09.. That’s almost a year ago.. Why all of this is still being discussed I have no idea.. I am very happy that Monica has found someone else in which she can be happy with.


But I felt the need to address this issue after being informed that my name was mentioned today in a blog in a negative manner. Just to set the record str8 I am a stand up dude. I have morals and live by certain principles and codes. I would not stand for my name to be associated with any of this he say she say immaturity.


Moving forward I would appreciate if the media respect my privacy and not mention my name when referring to Monica’s present or future personal relationships…


I don’t have the time nor luxury to be concerned with other peoples lives right now I’m too focused on my own!


I’d like to apologize to my twitter fam for the neglect. I’ve been overwhelmed shooting my debut film thru my new A1 film company and finishing up my sophomore album ” 1 of 1″ both scheduled for a jan. 2011 release.


With that being said I wish everyone the best as I continue to strive to be better ! Stay tuned for a big announcement coming from me soon!!!


In All Sincerity,

Shannon Brown Defends His Girlfriend, Monica

Published by Runteldat on Monday, August 23, 2010 at 11:50 am.

So late last week Media Take Out claimed that Los Angeles Laker and unintentional Chris Brown impersonator, Shannon Brown (no relation, allegedly) dumped his baby mama of seven years to date Monica.

With the wave of R&B female stars being accused of being man snatchers, naturally people were quick to jump on Mo without having their facts straight.

I’m not entirely sure how someone can be a “man stealer” if the man broke up with his girl before he moved on anyway, but no worries because surprise, surprise, Media Take Out doesn’t seem to know what in the hell they’re talking about.

Shannon took to Twitter to defend himself and his girlfriend:

“I write this to set the record straight. Media deception makes unfair and false reports of the truth, and it does not bring out the best in ANYONE. Monica is my girlfriend, confidant and a strong successful women that has been though a lot herself but she is in no way, a home wrecker. As a parent, I understand that parenting requires a partnership with my sons mother however the relationship between us fizzled a long time ago. Thus, never leading up to seven years, engagement or even talks of marriage. As parents, we have to continue to raise our son, and as individuals we both deserve happiness.” Thank you for the support and God Bless!

Monica Spotted With New Beau, Shannon Brown

Published by Runteldat on Thursday, August 19, 2010 at 12:00 am.

While people initially believed that Monica was dating rapper Maino (an educational guess if there ever were one), it’s actually LA Laker Shannon Brown who Monica has reportedly been spending time with.

The two were recently spotted having a night out and one fan wrote what she found out after seeing them in the club together:

“I was at the club and saw Monica and Shannon Brown boo’d up in VIP. I tried to get a pic but it would have been too obvious. Someone at the club told me Shannon has accompanied her on a few of her road trips while she promotes her album. They make a really cute couple.”

And according to Sandra Rose, the two are getting along well and might be getting serious:

A little birdie told me that Shannon recently met Mo’s parents Marilyn Best and Rev. Ed Best, and they both loved him!

“I also hear that Shannon supports Mo in all her personal and artistic endeavors. The 6-4 guard recently made the decision to return to the Lakers to win a third ring rather than choose a team closer to his lady’s heart. Mo’s boys, Melo and Lil Rocko love the chris brown look-a-like. Expect a big announcement real soon!”

A Laker? Some would settle for a guy that can afford Staples Centers seats that won’t cause a bleeding eruption in their nostrils.

All Mo does is win, win, win…

Monica And Maino? She Said He’s Just a Friend

Published by Dior Noir on Monday, August 2, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

In the sea of pictures from Tiny and T.I.’s nuptials that happened Saturday, I noticed guests Monica and Maino cheesing in the picture above. There have been lots of rumors linking these two together for awhile and they look pretty cozy don’t they?

Well looks can be deceiving. Blogger Sandra Rose corrected her report that claimed the two were an item when Monica’s camp reached out to her to clarify: they’re just friends:

“She hasn’t been addressing any rumors but feels it necessary to make it clear that she is not in a relationship with Maino at all and apologizes to him, his mate and loved ones for any pain this may cause,” one of Monica’s reps, Patrice Horton, said.

Monica’s new video  “Love All Over Me” probably helped spark rumors that she and Maino were a couple. In the video, Monica was torn between an old relationship with the rapper’s character and a new relationship with a character played by NBA player Shannon Brown. Ultimately, Maino didn’t get her on-screen either. 

Oh well!

Monica & Vivica Fox Make Up Over Diss

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at 12:00 am.

When I saw Monica take the stage at the BET Awards, I imagined Batman was somewhere around the cave looking for his missing hat until he looked up at his TV and realized that Mo snatched it and made it into a blouse.

“Ka-boom!” “Clank!” “Screeeeech!”

Of course, we all have our opinions about fashion. Some people thought Monica looked radiant while others, like Vivica Fox, not so much.

Well, Monica had some choice words and tweets for those that spoke against her look.

Although she wasn’t pressed about the criticism, she did tweet:

“Thank u guys for having my back but I’m not offended at all by that older ladies comment. U must be fashionable to judge fashion. LMAO…”

Mature shade strikes again.

Or not.

Monica has since had a change of heart and let it be known that she’s since settled the issue with Vivica.

Rumored Couple: Monica & Maino

Published by Runteldat on Monday, June 28, 2010 at 12:00 am.

After he appeared in her video, Chad Ochocinco became romantically linked to Monica.

While the singer ultimately dismissed those rumors, she’s facing a similar came spawning rumor, this time involving Maino.

The rapper along Los Angeles Laker Shannon Brown appear in Monica’s upcoming video for her second single, “Love All Over Me.”

One blogger claims that there may be more fact than fiction to Maino playing her love interest in the video.

Sandra Rose reports:

“Monica might say she’s way too busy with her children and her career to find the time for a relationship. But Mo loves the idea of being in love. A little birdie told us that the new thug in her life is rapper Maino!”

Maino has been previously linked to Nicki Minaj’s playground bully, Lil’ Kim.
