Ever since Shannon Brown, a Guard for the Los Angeles Lakers, portrayed R&B singer Monica‘s love interest in her latest music video, “Love All Over Me,” folks have been speculating on the two’s status as a couple.

Well, speculate no more! Shannon officially confirmed his relationship with Monica over the weekend after he defended her from folks who were calling her a “home-wrecker” via a message posted to Twitter.

Just last week, a report from a certain website who is known for spreading lies and propaganda labeled Mo as a home-wrecker, accusing her of “stealing” Shannon from his girlfriend/baby mama. But according to Brown himself, he and his now ex girlfriend were already broken up before he and his new girlfriend Monica started dating.

So in an effort to set the record straight, Brown posted the following message to his Twitter early Saturday afternoon (Aug 21):

I write this to set the record straight. Media deception makes unfair and false reports of the truth, and it does not bring out the best in ANYONE. Monica is my girlfriend, confidant and a strong successful women that has been though a lot herself but she is in no way, a home wrecker. As a parent, I understand that parenting requires a partnership with my sons mother however the relationship between us fizzled a long time ago. Thus, never leading up to seven years, engagement or even talks of marriage. As parents, we have to continue to raise our son, and as individuals we both deserve happiness. Thank you for the support and God Bless!

Shannon seems like a real stand-up guy and we’re definitely happy for our friend Monica. Looks like she’s got love all over her for real now!!
