On Friday, I received a ton of emails from readers asking about R&B singer Monica stealing Lakers guard Shannon Brown from another woman. I didn’t know Brown was married.
In fact he’s not married. Nor was he in a relationship with anyone when he met and wooed Monica. Just because a man has a child with a groupie does not mean he’s engaged to said groupie.
Brown made a mistake by sleeping with a Laker groupie and impregnating her. But now he’s taking responsibility for his youthful indiscretions. Brown is paying his child support and he is involved in the child’s life.
Now he has met the woman of his dreams and he knows what love is. Of course the groupie is butt hurt and now she’s running to the blogs with her lies. By the way, these are my words and no one else’s.
So can we let these rumors die?
Brown responded to the allegations on his Twitter page:
“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!
