It is astonishing to see how an innocent comment from Monica Brown about her daughter, Laiyah Shannon Brown, got her in so much drama.
The famous R&B singer shared a few pictures where she is spending some quality time with her only daughter.
Shannon Brown’s wife is known for her unmatched vocal cords and epic fashion game.
Which is why it is not that surprising that Monica is showing off her ridiculous swag by sporting a Fendi dress and coat while Laiyah is in Dolce Cabana.
The singer used the caption to say she is happy to consider her five-year-old daughter as her best friend.
Her caption read: “I gave Birth to My Bestfriend….. My Daughter ….. ”
The mother of three added: “God is all knowing !! Thank you for trusting me with the hearts and minds of three of the most precious I beings ever!! @laiyahbrown I love being your Mommy. My Favorite Girl…. Baby Boss… Doctor. Chef… Gymnast… Singer, all things she says she will be! It’s my job to make sure she knows it’s all possible !!”
Most people were in awe at how great Monica looked and the fact that she makes sure that her daughter dresses how a little girl of her age should dress, but a few were offended by the best friend comment.
Another mother said children should be raised and educated by their parents and added: “Some of you are making valid points, but the one point that I am making is friends don’t raise friends. You teach your children how to pick good friends. When you are friends with someone, you are on the same level as them. And you cannot be on the same level as your child if you are a parent. Fine, I’ll say it myself, yes I guess I’m miserable because I don’t believe that a child can be a friend to a parent. Lol.”
A pro-Monica comment read: “That was so sweet of you to say to everyone. We all need that shout out at times and words of encouragement. Your caption melted my heart as well. From one mother to the next, I share that same bond with my child, so I understand. God is good and may he bless you and your beautiful family.”
It’s simple & plain! We do NOT play about one another !! As you become young men I will always encourage growth instead of selfishly stifling it… Boys don’t become men with their Momma in the way… They become men with her standing beside them !!! #YouWontEverHaveToLookFar #IWillBeThere #TrustGod #FearNoMan #WalkUpright #GiveAndDemandRespect #KeepYourWord ? @romelohill @rockohill
A third fan shared: “I don’t understand why her and her daughter, her only daughter, can’t be friends. It’s different from when we grew up, but the little girl isn’t even five years old, yet so I don’t see the problem with her saying it. if you follow Monica’s account, you would understand a bit more.”
Are you bothered by Monica’s statement?
