R&B singer Monica is officially a basketball wife! Mo and her boo, Lakers star Shannon Brown tied the knot and have managed to keep it all hush hush for months!
Rumors began circulating way before Christmas that Mo was married and I’d heard that the party in L.A. was actually their reception. Only a few of Mo’s closest friends and family knew about the marriage and they all graciously managed to keep it out of the media.
Well now… the word is out. It’s official! Mo & Shannon tied the knot!
The rumors are true: Monica and Shannon Brown are indeed married. An official with the NBA also confirmed the marriage, which took place in Los Angeles on November 22, 2010.
A friend of Shannon Brown’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 wed officially in front of family and friends (again) in Los Angeles in June. (Source)
Word is… Mo has already changed her last name to “Brown.”
As you recall, Mo met Shannon on the set of the video for “Love All Over Me,” where she and Shannon ended up walking down the aisle. The two have been inseparable every since. Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy!
Much love to the happy couple!!

Word on the curb is that Lauryn Hill’s recent Atlanta concert was a major disappointment.
While anxious fans filled the intimate venue awaiting her performance, Lauryn hit the stage 3 hours late. Once there, she performed the same music over and over again and was eventually boo’d by disgruntled crowd:
Lauryn promptly confused her fans by announcing that she was tired of “playing the same music night after night.” Hill told the shocked audience that she wanted to play something different. She then instructed her band to speed up the music, which rendered her classic hits unrecognizable.
The insider said Hill urged the audience to sing along, saying, “I want crowd participation.”
“But nobody could participate because NOBODY knew the music!,” said the fan. “Everybody was looking around like ‘WHAT SONG IS THIS???’”
To complicate the situation further, the fan said the band was way too loud. “We kept asking her to tell the band to turn the music down,” said the fan. “We couldn’t hear her.”
The source said other concertgoers booed the singer and then took their bags and purses and “stomped out” of the theater. “They didn’t walk out — they stomped out!” she emphasized. READ MORE
