L.A. Lakers player Shannon Brown and Atlanta singer Monica got married in November,  but are just now telling people about it.

“This is a very special time in my life,” she said in a statement provided to  HipHollywood.com. “I am blessed to have married the man that God sent me, he’s loving, compassionate, strong and supportive of my children, family and career. I look forward to our lives together.”

They plan to hold a ceremony for friends and family this summer and may want to have children, the singer said.

She toured with Trey Songz and Dondria, who is Jermaine Dupri’s new protoge, last summer. The photo at right was taken during a tour stop here in Atlanta.

Momica who? Never heard of her. Apparently not big enough to only have one name.

Rich first off her name is Monica and not Momica. So what you haven’t heard her! She IS a very well known celebrity! Google her so you won’t sound so ignorant next time you comment on something. You could have kept your comment really!

Monica is not only one of the Great Singers to come out of Atlanta; but, she’s also one of the few artist who graduated with a 4.0 in high school.

@comedown, the issue is that he felt compelled to comment on her only having one name when he admitted he didn’t even know her! So why even bother, (I know I know, free country). Gone are the days when someone can genuinely be happy for someone else even if it is a complete stranger!!

Congrats for Monica, but please don’t forget that Shannon is ALREADY a father. I hope Monica plays it smart and lays a foundation for a TRULY happy family life by embracing Shannon’s child/children…they will not make it if she doesn’t. That’s real talk….also, KARMA IS REAL so I hope She keeps the drama down with his baby’s mother as well.

I don’t anything about her but just because she is experiencing success with career and financially doesn’t mean it God. But it could be. Just saying “All that glitters aint God”

Yay for Monica / Shannon

It’s good to see the unity of Black Love: sure they both have children from past relationships but they’re showing their sons what a Family is. Congrats to them both! He seems very much into her and that Ladies, is always better…when a Man loves a Woman (….more) :)

I believe that she is pregnant, she claims to be so wise and grown beyond her years and doing something like this seems to be outside of her characther unless she is pregnant. I think she has been dating this guy for a year now and they have blended thier families together really quick but hey I guess she knows all she needs to know in one year. Congrats Mo :-)

@Mrs Tucker,understood.Those who don’t have anything good to say could be haters.@Sean,GOD used saul a murderer for his glory.So don’t be so quick to say it aint GOD because it don’t look like him.Gotta go threw some to have a testimony.

In my circles, people like Rich are what we call…HATERS! Those who have nothing, so wish for others to accompany them in misery.

For those who don’t understand, in addition to her intellectual and musical gifts, she IS a child of GOD, with her own personal relationship with him. Although I’m not friends with her, I have been in a small group setting with her where she was able to share her testimony. And this was 5 – 6 years ago! She knew who she was, whose she was, and what it meant to hear from HIM. Unlike some of the other celebs that are “spiritual” when it is convenient, I know her to be a true believer. If she can give GOD the glory for bringing her happiness, who are we to question or judge her?

Congrats and God Bless You Monica!

Memo to White People: In the “Black” world if you look a situation with common sense, logic, etc and question things that to you don’t seem to make sense or things that you know anybody that is smart, intelligent, etc would never do, you are automatically labeled as a “Hater”.

It is just an easy way to dismiss your questions without having to get into a discussion that requires thought, honesty, common sense, etc.

I love Mo and wish her the very best! I believe my girl to be bigger, better, and brighter than any underestimation a small mind can conceive. I believe she loves, knows, and trusts the Lord. I wish her the best. She will RISE no matter what! May God continue to bless Monica and hers! I know the power of God. When you filter the trash out of your life, God can make everything new. I can’t wait to see Mo with her husband, kids, and GRAMMY in a couple of weeks.

wow at shannonbrownsbabymama! Tell us how you really feel. True we dont know the whole story, but i agree. A man cant be taken away from anyone. Dont blame her because he left. He left on his own. Women spend too much time blaming the wrong person. You werent dating her you were dating him so be mad at him. You will find your MR Right Someday!

They were together only 8 months before getting married (even though she was with her boys (2) father over 6 years, engaged & never got married), it still seems fast. To do it privately/secretly 2 months ago and just now talking about it, however you call it, but to twitter immediately with a pic of the ring, seems like she might be pregnant since she mentioned they “might” want to have children. Time will tell.

Monica has bashed Christians because she herself wasn’t living right (look up the interview on the net). Since that time, I haven’t liked her. If the individual has a problem with God or the fact that they themselves chose to have 2 kids with a loser and never get married talking fiancee for 6 years, that’s their problem. Don’t get mad at God cause it’s in his word when someone points it out.
Now the quickie wedding in 7 or 8 months and secretly, prob. pregnant already.
