A heartbroken Monica has decided to open up about her surprise divorce from former NBA star Shannon Brown during a chit-chat with Toya Wright on the latest episode of T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle.
The talented diva is known to keep her personal life private, which is why many were shocked by this latest development.
The R&B singer got very emotional as she spoke about her failed romance with ex-fiancé Rodney “Rocko” Hill and the father of her two sons: “I think a lot of my life changes have become so complex and difficult. I had two children. I stayed in that relationship a long time, and he was a loss on both levels.”
She went on to explain the roller coaster of emotions she has been going through since splitting from the father of her daughter: “Then I finally met my husband and then I had my daughter, and it was good that he was athletic like the boys, so they had their own bond…and then now that’s a loss. It’s been some rough weeks these last few weeks.”
Monica later confessed: “Things in my personal life have been changing a lot, and it has not been easy. I cannot lie. My personal relationship is taking a major toll on me. I’m feeling it every day. I’ve been keeping everything to myself, and I feel overwhelmed…I’m everybody’s go-to, and I think it makes people think I’m pretending to be perfect when in actuality, I just don’t believe in pausing. ‘Cause it’s like you pause, and you get stuck.”
