Is Monica's Fiance' Shannon Brown Already Rocking A Wedding Band?

Rumors are hitting the internet streets that Monica and her Laker baller of a fiance Shannon Brown have already secretly tied the knot.

 

And we notice that Shannon is rocking a very wedding-band-like ring on his hand.  Deets when you read on...

After last week's game against the Knicks, Shannon Brown was getting interviewed by the sports press.  And if you look closely, you see him flash a ring that looks pretty damn close to a man's wedding band.  Is this normal protocol before a wedding?

Last night, rumors hit the net that Monica and her boo actually tied the knot on November 22nd at a courthouse.  And they are allegedly planning a second ceremony to take place in front of family and friends.  No confirmation (or denial) from either side out of their own mouths yet, but supposedly Monica has also already changed her name to "Brown."  We're not 100% believing this just yet, but we're simply the messenger.

Now, I'm not the wedding protocol queen as my obsession with "Bridezillas" and "Say Yes To The Dress" does not help since they don't go into these important details like when a man starts to rock his wedding band or when a woman changes her last name.

So, is this all protocol for their first wedding?  Or did the two actually already tie the knot?  Time will tell....

The rumors have been swirling

The rumors have been swirling for two months that Mo and Shannon got married prior to her moving in with her fiance in LA in November. The marriage took place in front of the couple’s parents. Over the weekend, a reader emailed me to say that Monica went into the Clayton County office 2 weeks ago to change her last name to Brown. Normally, I would call my good friend, Monica, and ask her to confirm the rumors myself, but I decided to do what other bloggers stopped doing — research the rumors myself. 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.

First off Monica and Rocko

First off Monica and Rocko parted ways in October, and Monica said that Shannon pursued her. Remember on Wendy Williams she was not ready for love and was giving up because of what sha had been through. Then during the video shoot Shannon and Monica connected and who can put a time frame on love? Maybe she was suppose to go through what she went through to be right where she is and can now appreciate what real love feels like.

I just want to add that I'm

I just want to add that I'm SEVEN years my husband's senior and I'm not threatened at all that he'll find a younger woman. I look much younger than what ppl think anyway. If that day ever comes, then he wasn't meant to be w/ me. I WILL NOT stress over a man being w/ me because I'm not chopped liver and WILL find another one if I choose to. I love my husband and all, but I do have a life outside of him.

PPL want to talk about

PPL want to talk about Shannon and Monica taking it too fast. . . . well, my husband and I got married quite quick and it's been 5 years and still going strong. You know when he/she is the right one. There's no time limit on love. Look at Nick and Mariah. When they first started dating, all of the haters just KNEW that they wouldn't last. Well, look at them - 2 years later - about to have a child or children. Stop w/ the statistics because everyone is not the same. I wish them much luck and I believe they will make it.

It is sad the we get caught

It is sad the we get caught up in celebrity lives that we need to be worrying about our own lives. When this couple is ready to let us know or if they never let us know just be happy for them. We really need to get it together in 2011, and stop being haters. Why is it any of our business if they did or did not get married? Just speak blessings over their union that God will be the head of the relationship instead of bashing them. That is what is wrong with America we live through the lives of celebrities worry about your own, we don't have to live with them or be around them. Obviously you are not happy with your own lives if you have to bad mouth their relationship or you are jealous because she found someone who loves her and her children. I pray and speak blessings on this couple that this union and God continues to be the head over them. #dobetterin2011

We As men KNOW what we want,

We As men KNOW what we want, with 4 months I knew my wife was my wife. Now 10 years later I'm still happy and we even work together. Monica is smart she spent 10 years and had 2 kids with Rocko. So she knows what she wants and needs. But know this ladies. So does Shannon. She didn't make him get on one knee and say I do. U can't make a man. This is great for her. They met in June of 2010. It's almost February of 2011... I'm sorry that's long enough. Any woman who's man is telling you different. He just don't want to marry. I feel Monica is very smart. I am a fan of Rocko and even in his lyrics can tell he wasn't the one. Once we recognize people for who they are and love them for that we can move forward. Monica really gets my respect for never bashing her childrens father. She's a positive woman. I believe this will last. And a man with a ring on that finger with that design says MARRIED. Shout out to my wife tonya. Love you

I KNOW MONICA HAS GOTTEN

I KNOW MONICA HAS GOTTEN OLDER, AND WANTS TO SETTLE, BUT I REALLY THINK SHE SHOULD HAVE GIVEN THE RELATIONSHIP MORE TIME. SHE ONLY KNEW THIS DUDE FOR LIKE 2 SECONDS, AND DIDN’T EVEN ALLOW HER RELATIONSHIP WITH ROCKO TO BE COMPLETELY BARRIED UNDER THE ROCKS.I JUST FEEL LIKE IT WAS WAY TOO RUSHED I ABSOLUTELY! LOVE MONICA, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE SHE WANTS MORE OF THE TITLE BEING A WIFE INSTEAD OF LETTING GOD TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION. WHENEVER RELATIONSHIPS OF ANY KIND ARE FORCED IT WILL NEVER LAST, AND THE RELATIONSHIP WILL NEVER BE A HEALTHY ONE. I HAVE SEEN THIS WITH MY OWN EYES, AND I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE GO THROUGH IT, AND IT’S BECAUSE THEY JUST WANT THE FEELING OF HAVING SOMEONE INSTEAD OF GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF MEETING SOMEONE AND BUILDING A FRIENDSHIP FIRST, AND TAKING TIME TO GET TO KNOW THE INDIVIDUAL BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE.PEOPLE JUST WANT THIS WHAT I LIKE TO CALL THIS “MICROWAVE RELATIONSHIP”WITH THAT SAID I HOPE SHE HAS MADE THE RIGHT DECISION, AND GOOD LUCK TO HER:-)

All I have to say is that

All I have to say is that Monica jumps into things WAY too fast. She just met the boy and she's ready to tie the knot? You can know someone for 5 years and still not really know that person. All of this is too fast. I know she's not getting any younger but what's the rush? There's nothing wrong with just being together and waiting to jump the broom. All of these celebrity couples get married after 2 months and then in the end they regret it because they didn't know the type of person they were marrying. Nonetheless, I'm still happy for Monica. I hope she doesn't get hurt in the end.

Monica stayed out of the

Monica stayed out of the spotlight for years. Her, Brandy and Aaliyah never saturated the industry with themselves. They made albums then laid low for 3-4 years. Before she came out with that "After The Storm" album, she laid low for years. People just want to have something to say, I guess, but she's never put herself out there as an attention seeker. Wow. And how is anyone talking about her business like they have intimate details of her life? Someone's always do this or they have to be lying about stuff in THEIR lives. Really? SMH

I feel the same way about

I feel the same way about this marriage that I do about Chloe & Lamar's marriage. How you go marry someone you barely know?? Double side-eye at Monica tho, cause she got kids to protect whereas Khloe don't. Well I guess she know Shannon wont be a mass murderer, child molestor, or overly aggressive to her children since he a NBA player with an image to protect huh? Cause Lord knows she hasn't been with him long enough to see signs emerge from undercover especially with them being athletes & celebrities with busy schedules. Oh well, I wish them the best. I guess every girl has the dream of marrying a professional athlete whether they're famous or not themselves...

Oh & I before I get all the crazy fans attacking me, I'm not saying Shannon is any of that!! I personally think he's a stand up guy. We come from the same area outside of Chicago but I just wish people were more careful when it cam to their children...

what i know for sure, the

what i know for sure, the person you are supposed to be with, you know from first eye glance most of the times. relationships aren't persuaded, they are usually start from day one. it's that person you always want to be near, and if it's mutual, you are in a relationship where you want to call it or that or not. rather you want to go by we are married, boyfriend or girlfriend or whatever.
