R&B singer Monica stopped by "The Wendy Williams Show" and discussed her marriage to NBA player Shannon Brown. Monica kept the marriage quiet for a while before sharing the news with her fans and she said she didn't want to make a spectacle out of anything.
"Actually, we did it Justice of the Peace style," Monica shared. "It wasn’t so much that it was a secret; we just didn’t make an announcement, which is the new way for everything."
"[My family] all knew; they helped us prepare because we had to bring the Justice of the Peace to our house," she added. "We promised; I am my mother’s first born; he is his mother’s first born and then our mothers are very close, so there was an unspoken “So when are we all celebrating?” type of thing going on. So we just decided that after the season they were fighting to get a 3-peat [we would get married because] we didn’t want to cause distractions during the season. That was really the real reason. I said, “Okay, we’ll make a date.” Shannon picked July 9th and that is when we did the actual ceremony."
