August 20, 2010. MediaTakeOut.com was offering CONGRATULATIONS earlier this week, when we CONFIRMED that R&B singer Monica was dating NBA baller Shannon Brown of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Well we have to RETRACT that congratulations (Sorry Mo). According to one of MediaTakeOut.com EXTREMELY reliable sources, that's because Shannon ABRUPTLY DUMPED HIS BABYS MOMS when he met Monica.
And we're not talking about any ON-AGAIN-OFF-AGAIN babys moms. Shannon and his sons mother Sharde have been TOGETHER for 7 years, living together AS A FAMILY!!!
The insider explained to MediaTakeOut.com, "Everything was fine, they were even talking about getting married . . . they were one big happy family, and then Monica came along."
But MediaTakeOutcom's snitch added, "I don't COMPLETELY blame Monica for everything. But as a mom who just had her babys father (Rocko) CHEAT ON HER, she should understand."
Dang Mo, your our girl and all . . . but we can't CO-SIGN on this here. Plus, Sharde is an AVID MTO READER . . . and you know, we gotta STICK UP FOR OUR PEOPLES!!!
Editor's Update: And we hear RUMORS that Shannon may have actually been ENGAGED. Check out the below video, taken last year of Shannon and Sharde. Sharde is CLEARLY wearing rings on her LEFT RING FINGER
According to Lalate.com,
LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Monica is dating Shannon Brown (Lakers) claims multiple reports. Shannon Brown and Monica are reportedly dating after Brown took a spot in an upcoming music video for the hit maker.
In July, one reader wrote into a celebrity blog Necole Bitchie claiming she spotted Monica with the Lakers star together in Times Square New York.”They appeared to be into each other. Shannon was laughing and Monica was smiling. Shannon is cutie! But I mean they could be here on business!” Today another website claims the two are in fact dating.
In September, BET confirmed news that Monica would return with a new reality series MONICA on October 27. “Viewers will have the chance to experience the many faces of Monica as she balances family, deals with trials, triumphs and health challenges, records her fifth album, “STILL STANDING” and tackles the hardest job of all – being a full-time mother of two young sons. Even with all of the success in her entertainment career as a Grammy(R) Award-winning, multi-platinum recording artist and actress, Monica’s life has not been without its challenges. Yet, through the spiritual guidance of her parents, family and fiancee she withstood the storms of life and that same support keeps her standing today.”
