Brandy’s response reignited rumors that the two songstresses didn’t get along — a saga that dates back to 1998 when the pair recorded their Grammy-winning duet “The Boy is Mine.” Though the R&B divas both continually denied and downplayed their supposed beef during the 90s, it was not enough to squash the rumors, which included one report of a fist fight during rehearsals for the MTV Video Music Awards.The media-hyped and fan-fueled rivalry was so volatile that neither singer could escape it.Monica described Houston as her “fairy godmother” — a term that was often publicly used by Brandy, who considered Whitney both her figurative fairy godmother in real life and literal one in their 1997 TV film Everybody wanted what we had/have and I am blessed enough to have been your friend, #Fairy God Daughter and make history with you as my #Fairy God Mother — and now you’re my angel— I wish that you were here in the physical to witness so much of my courage that you stayed on me about– but I know you are watching and I know what you expect me to do. The fan continued, “Ya’ll can’t be mad bc Monica beautiful and has beautiful children and a fine husband.
Monica was the tall, model-esque beauty, while Brandy had more exotic features — Asian-like eyes, small button nose and full lips — which she was both praised and ridiculed for.This journey of self-progression and self-love and empowerment that I’m on, I can’t go backwards. I think that some of it’s been blown out of proportion to a degree, but I can’t tell my kids to do something that I can’t do.It was just a test for me to always take the high road and know that in anything that happens in this life, if it’s meant for you, it’s yours. Brandy quickly clapped back on Instagram after the show’s airing, suggesting that Monica was “fake” and that her brand of positivity was all a cover-up. so many people liked my performance at the #soultrainawards , I think you would have too.In 2004 she was engaged to NBA guard Quentin Richardson, then in 2012 she got engaged to music executive Ryan Press, but the couple called it off in 2014. Brandy recently gushed about her relationship with Ryan Press on Wendy Williams and admitted that she’s in love with the producer who has to be a relative of Laz Alonzo on somebody’s side.Following the Soul Train Awards, Brandy continued her social media attack on Monica after the singer’s appearance on OWN’s “Where Are They Now? #fingerscrossed space: nowrap;” The series of social media posts caused Monica fans and the like to go on the attack, yet again, calling Brandy “petty” and bitter.” in which she recalled her relationship with Whitney. “It’s a shame how [Brandy] carrying on toward [Monica]…you know they say misery loves company and you can see she’s miserable,” wrote one fan in an Instagram comment directed at Brandy’s mother, Sonja Norwood.She was even linked to Flo Rida in mid 2010 and said that “he’s somebody in my life, and I’m definitely interested.” We could let that go with a technicality and assume her and Laz Jr.’s relationship is coming close to a two-year anniversary and her friends just like to round up, but that would mean she had to jump straight from Flo to Ryan.We can also assume somebody has been lying, and it’s not her friends.If Brandy is being a little sketchy about this relationship it wouldn’t be the first time.Remember that whole fake “non-traditional marriage” fiasco when she claimed to have had some sort of spiritual union with her daughter’s father, Robert Smith?
