Monica has had her fair share of tragedy when it comes to love, beginning in 2000 when she witnessed her fiance Jarvis Weems commit suicide right in front of her face. Her next relationship with Atlanta based rapper Rocko began shortly after Weems’ suicide resulted in the birth of her first two children.

Their rocky relationship lasted until early 2010 and shortly afterwards Monica met Shannon Brown while searching for a love interest to appear in her video for the song “Love All Over Me”.

Monica and Shannon soon married in November of 2010 in a secret ceremony followed by a second ceremony for their family and friends in July of 2011. The couple welcomed a daughter in 2013 and have been living a fairly quiet life up until recently when divorce rumors began swirling. Those rumors become confirmed earlier this year. Although Monica has remained successful with not referencing her marriage issues on this current season of T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle she has now broken her silence on the emotions shes going through.
