R&B singer Monica laughed off rumors that she went under the knife for a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).

Fans thought Monica’s butt looked a little thick in a video clip from a recent concert.

However, during a livestream video chat, the mom-of-three shut down speculation that she got a Brazilian Butt Lift.

A friend told the singer, “I need your BBL doctor, girl.” But Monica laughed and said, “Oh, y’all got jokes!”

Then she got serious. “Let me tell you something. My health is far too bad to be playing like that.”

She then said she would have had her belly fat removed if she went under the knife. “Why they ain’t get this part? Why they leave that?”


“Mama don’t play,” she said. “I don’t even get lash extensions… Like, damn, I done kept it real wit’ y’all for so long. Y’all forgot? Like, what in the world? And the audacity…”

She added, “That’s OK, diet starts tomorrow.”

Fans aren’t convinced that Monica didn’t get body work done. Everyone in the music industry has had some work done.

Fans say Monica was rail thin for years. Now she has curves.

One skeptical fan wrote: “If she didn’t get a BBL then she is wearing pads. Something don’t look natural about that Boo-ta.”

Another fan wrote: “Famous ppl love to play on words… You don’t go from being shaped like a 2×4 for 40 years & all of a sudden… Of course she doesn’t have a BBL because u have to have fat to transfer in order to do so. She either has some type of injections or padding…”
