Monica Brown

Monica Brown heard your concerns over the whereabouts of her husband, retired NBA Development League star Shannon Brown. Monica posted this Instagram.com photo of her beautiful family on Spring Break on the beach. Shannon and Monica pose on the beach with their daughter Laiyah Shannon Brown, 3, and Mo's sons Rocko, 11, and Romelo, 9, by music producer Rocko Da Don.

Shannon, 31, picked up a few extra pounds after he was drafted in the 2nd round by the Detroit Pistons affiliate D-League team the Grand Rapid Drive late last year. But he didn't last long.

Brown had hoped to transition quickly from the D-League back to the NBA. But he was plagued by the same rumors that followed him throughout his NBA career.

Brown, who played for eight NBA teams, was waived by the Drive on Nov. 10, 2016 as "physically unable to play at this time," according to published reports.

MSU star Sterling Brown, 22, will follow in his big brother's footsteps when the NBA draft is held on June 22.

  • TDK

    I thought Mo was a FOB. ?

  • therealashland

    Ive never known Shannon to be on drugs. Is Monica still a friend of the blog?

  • Quitedeliteful

    I like Monica. Always classy. Nice looking family.

  • Tink Tink

    Sandra is petty, lol.....I wonder what Monica do to lose her 'FOB' title.

  • Tink Tink

    Good morning Roses :hi:

  • SG

    I like seeing black families.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Cute family pic. I'm here for black families and black love.

  • n1kk1a

    Her hair is no bueno...

  • Carrington

    I'm noticing that the latest trend is... buy as much weave as you can, as long as you can get it... and connect it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yeah... it is a bit much.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!

  • Nakia Brown

  • SuperScooper1

    This all day! I like these kinds of stories and ignore the snark.

  • Harriet Winslow

    Monica been Looking A Mess Lately But Shannon Can Get It. DON'T Judge Me... He Cheats On Here Anyway.

  • Carrington

    Unfortunately, my poor, sweet female cousins have been diagnosed with HEDATH BETSTAG too (hair extension down at the hip, but edges too shawt to apply the glue)... I need the Lord to come through. Sisters, y'all don't have to buy every pack of weave in them folks store to be cute. Less is more. I promise you it is.

  • AG

    Yeah. I think he has a son.

  • Phillybruh

    He's got a son, he's probally in the actual picture, but when he and MO first got together the BM was in her feelings and didn't want the child photo'd with her/them so they crop him out.

  • iyonah

    I love them and Mo's long IG captions. I will always be here for the woman who gave me Runaway, Sideline Ho, Still Standing and Angel of Mine. I also think Shannon stopped cheating and the weight gain was after that car accident/ bout he had with prescription drugs and depression. He looks healthier and Mo looks great. Hope they enjoy the vacation. I love her emphasis on family and being loyal.

  • iyonah

    Same... I love when she post her and her brood. Love it love it.

  • iyonah

    I agree she has always been classy.

  • Phillybruh

    Retired or not, He still got that Laker Money so he should be good they don't look worried. She always somewhere with them kids.

  • Phillybruh

    Judging by the tone, I don't think so...lol

  • Libra80sBaby

  • imright

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I removed the drug reference since that's (hopefully) behind him.

  • Mrs Mary

    where is shannon's daughter at with his ex? he's raising someone else's kids but where is his child at? smh

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Hehe

  • Phillybruh

    He's probably with them, the BM doesn't want him in photographs with them.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He has a son from a previous relationship.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Monica don't play when it comes to her husband...and I am here for it.

  • reddfoxxy16

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Shannon looks like a combo of two men I used to deal with and they were both great in bed. Monica is lucky cause I'd climb his azz like a tree...

  • Benjamin

    I never knew there was a limit.

  • CookieMobster

    Well.... There's not! It just seems awful hot and a lot to deal with while at the beach. That's all.

  • Michelle

    Gurl yes.. I was looking hard but I would never touch.

  • sunni_daze

    Because they're braids a perfect protective style for the beach.

  • tintin

  • ThisIsWhat40LooksLike

  • Shira Harding-James

  • Shira Harding-James

    And she probably isn't getting in the water

  • missmiami305

    What rumors???

  • missmiami305

    ????????

  • YellowSauce

    a person once asked me about having so much hair in the summer .... what I told her was ...she was used to being bald and I was used to having hair all year round AND THEN SHE SHUT UP with her cool scalp ... its called sneak dissing ... they be trying it and ME too lolololol I do what I do and you do YOU ....

  • YellowSauce

    by the look on Monica's face you MIGHT be RIGHT ... lololol cheesing lol #vacationbae

  • Solstice

    ??

  • YellowSauce

    right ... the weave hate is too real lololololol re lax ... lololol why can't we allow people to have the choices THEY WANT ... if she wants a wiiiig she can have one as long as she buys it and she'll take a side a glue and a bottle of no hate please lololol

  • YellowSauce

    yes SHE WILL ... lol

  • bemetoo

    yes please do tell

  • Malcom Flex

    He's beyond sick of her & she's needy. Black mothers, if they want their kids to have black pride need to quit the blond hair. Don't wonder why little black boys want white girls and little black girls don't like themselves it starts in home, first.

  • Malcom Flex

    Her hair is played out and her husband isn't into her period.

  • reddfoxxy16

    LOL, what u saiiid???.. Exactly... let people DO them...I think weave extensions are so cute, (When done right) I like wigs 2, but just not on me...

  • reddfoxxy16

    How's the blender-razation??? that's what i hate 2 see, when the blending's bad ...the leave out MUST ALWAYS MATCH the weave's texture- ...

  • Yetunde

    Black women with blonde hair is one of my pet hates.

  • stanley

    I think there's trouble in paradise.. Monica should of had 3 more kids by Shannon by now lol. I know he wants more than 1 biological daughter with her.

  • reddfoxxy16

    LMFAOOOOO! Some folks KILL ME...WORRY BOUT U...TF u worried bout me & my Hair 4????? UGGGGHHH!!!!

  • reddfoxxy16

    LOL, Right...

  • Malcom Flex

    As a parent it's the wrong look. Sends a bad message to black kids to honor nonblack beauty and messes, particularly with the minds of black girls.

  • Malcom Flex

    You know she's not.

  • Malcom Flex

    Naw that's flossing braids not swimming braids takes all day to dry those braids.

  • Shira Harding-James

    We hardly do

  • Shira Harding-James

    Hmmmm I disagree lol

  • ReseyPooh

    ??

  • ReseyPooh

    Where's your city? Because it has taking over in my city mobile, Al hunty!!!!

  • Benjamin

    LOL I love that, that's right girl.

  • Queen B

    What laker money? The money is only ongoing if u get drafted in the hall of fame

  • Queen B

    ????

  • IamAllnatural

    A beautiful black family. She is definitely daddy's twin.
    I don't see anything wrong with Shannon's body language, because he has always looked like that. He seems very nonchalant & laid back, just chilling. Monica don't seem like the type that would stick around being unhappy.

  • monique

    So what do these players do after retirement? They must go crazy while being at home after hardly being there during the season of their sport.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Maybe they don't care what their mom's hair looks like...?

  • Mrs Mary

    he also has a daughter before the one he had with monica

  • Mrs Mary

    he has a nice body but his face not so much

  • Notatall

    No u didn't. ..LOL

  • Top cat

    Me too

  • MsPam

    Okay, I guess she needs new friends of the blog since Tiny&TI are no longer the favor of the month!????

  • MRiGOThim

    Damn Shannon sexy as hell...Lordt!!!

  • Dee Jone

    He wasn't in the D league and he won a ring with the LA Lakers.

  • bemetoo

    there sre many black kids born with blond hair

  • Jussjess25

    Facts

  • Malcom Flex

    Not that many and you damn well know it

  • Malcom Flex

    Yeh that'll work not giving a damn about influcing kids to self hate, yeh that's working #sarcasm

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    So changing ones hair is because they hate themselves and it influences their kids? Got it...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Philly smh

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Its horrible and I dont know if its because I work at a college and see it everyday or what. I would never ever walk out my house with mismatched hair. And it be so brittle and thin smh I cant stand the rachets in my city

  • YellowSauce

    I do and i'm hella cute and nobody ever kicked me outta bed for eating crackers OR rocking weaves lolololololol

  • Melissa Rice
