R&B singer Monica finalizes divorce from NBA alum Shannon Brown following eight year marriage

R&B songstress Monica has finalized her divorce with former NBA shooting guard Shannon Brown.

The singer was granted her divorce after appearing with her lawyer Tanya Mitchell Graham at a Fayetteville, Georgia courthouse Tuesday, according to TMZ.

Brown did not appear, making the proceedings rather simple with the hearing lasting under 10 minutes.

The Angel Of Mine singer, 38, was also granted a request to restore her legal name to her maiden name, making her Monica Arnold once again.

Spousal support was not discussed during the hearing and it’s unclear whether the couple will be pursuing the matter. 

Meanwhile, the couple’s child support agreements have been sealed by the courts.

The Georgia-native and athlete share five-year-old daughter Laiyah. Monica also has two sons, Rodney, 13, and Romelo, 11, with her ex- fiancé Rodney ‘Rocko’ Hill.

Word of Monica and Shannon’s divorce proceedings emerged back in March, although the pair reportedly separated around fall last year.

Monica and Shannon were last seen together nearly one whole year ago when the singer celebrated her October 24 birthday.

Monica and Brown were wed in a private LA ceremony back in November 2010.

They kept their nuptials secret for months before confirming the happy news in January 2011.

Neither has revealed the reason for their split, but Monica opened up about how the breakup is affecting the kids during a sit down with Sway Calloway on his SiriusXM show back in August.

‘My 11-year-old asked me, “Can you stop divorce? Can you stop it?” Monica said. ‘I asked him, “Did you ask me that because you were asked or are you asking because it’s something you want to know?”

‘He said, “No, it’s something I want to know. Can you stop it, what does it mean, what does it take, what does it require?” So I told him the truth.’
