The word is out! R&B diva, Monica, and NBA star Shannon Brown are officially husband and wife. The rumors have been swirling for two months that Mo and Shannon got married prior to her moving in with her fiance in LA in November, but it wasn’t confirmed until recently.
Over the weekend, loyal reader Sheena emailed me that Monica went into the Clayton County office two weeks ago to change her last name to Brown:
I heard recently thru a friend that Monica is married and keeping things hush! She had her name change recently @ the dmv in clayton county. My friend states since November. Congrats to Monica if this is true.
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 â€” research the rumors myself.
A friend of Shannon Brownâ€™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 officially wed in front of family and friends (again) in Los Angeles in June.
We send our CONGRATULATIONS to the happy couple!
