Yesterday MediaTakeOut.com told you that word going around "The A" is that R&B singer was Monica was having some money trouble. Well Monica reached out to us directly to clear the whole thing up.
Monica told us, in no uncertain terms, that her paper was in order. The R&B singer explained MediaTakeOut.com that she wisely invested the money she made in the industry and now she's able to live very comfortably.
And the house that we showed to you guys yesterday that was for sale - well it wasn't Monica's - it was her accountants. Apparently she had her baby shower there - and a lot of folk thought the house was Monica's.
MediaTakeOut.com asked Monica head on where she believed the rumors of her financial crisis were coming from. And Monica explained, "People are probably saying that I'm having [financial] difficulty because I'm not around like I used to be. I'm not in the clubs and such ... But I'm at a different point in my life ... I have a family now."
But don't get it twisted, just because Monica's not in the clubs, doesn't mean she's not in the studio. Monica told MediaTakeOut.com that she's been currently working on her new album Lessons Learned with the likes of Polow Da Don, Bryan Cox, Missy, Babyface, and Jermaine Dupri.
Her first single's coming out in July and the albums set for a late August release.
2nd! LOL This is the first. Ha ha! Leave Monica alone, she holding it down in the A! Holla
Monica do you, no explanation needed. We still love your style.

Yes, there comes a time, when we must leave those clubs alone, and focus on the real world.
CUT IT THE H/E/L/L OUT! All that mess aint even cute, and that's a dang website for people with STD's seeking a relationship...nothin' wrong with that, but don't be up in here claiming that's what Monica is. Sheesh, I tells ya! Good morning peeps!
I found dem sexy boys:
WELL LETS ALL APPLAUD HER FOR GROWING UP AND TAKING RESPONSIBILITY...AND I AM HAPPY TO HEAR THAT SHE DID INVEST WISELY...RECESSION IS HERE LOL
That's right Monica Let them know!!!!!!
MTO you got the story wrong again, it was her accountants house not her's.
Monica must have a lil too much free time on her hands if she gotta take the time out to explain her finances to MTO. Just my opinion...but she really *** have to explain anything.
SO BASICALLY THAT WAS SHAMELESS PROMOTION SO PEOPLE WOULD KNOW SHE HAD AN ALBUM COMING OUT? MMMKAY GREAT THX
Of coarse she's straight.
ALWAYS LIKED MONICA. GLAD THESE RUMORS ARE ALL CLEARED UP. NOW PEOPLE CAN STOP COUNTIN' HER MONEY AND GET SOME OF THEIR OWN.
MONICA YOU ARE THE GIRL. WE RESPECT YOU AND KNOW YOU HAVE A FAMILY. KEEP DOING WHAT YOU DOING
Monica always reading Mediatakeout and replying back lol
YEA SHE REALLY ISN'T OUT LIKE SHE USED TO BE. I USED TO SEE HER A/S/S AT THE CLUB AND AT CERTAIN EVENTS LIKE "BEN HILL DAY" WITH HER BIG A/S/S DOGS CHILLING LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE. BUT MAYBE SHE IS GROWING UP AND TAKING CARE OF HER KIDS LIKE A MOTHER SHOULD.
I WISH HER MUCH SUCCESS AND CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEW ALBUM.

MTO at it'f finest....Good for you Mon....
Oh $hit I can't wait for her new album to drop. And MTO yesterday you didn't say word going around Atlanta Monica was broke. Don't try to clean it up now.
THATS RIGHT BUT SHE DONT NEED TO EXPLAIN NOTHING TO MTO(IF SHE REALLY DID SAY THIS)! MONICA MY GURL READY FOR THE NEXT ALBUM THOUGH
You go girl!! Monica is so real! I dont think she is broke. She seems like a smart girl!
i'm going to need monica to go on and take care of her two kids and do whatever else it is she does, BESIDES going back and forth on blog sites. how silly does it look that she is explaining her status? she STAYS in contact with another blogger, setting records straight and carrying on. girl, please!

MONICA IS SO OLD NEWS...SHE IS OLD AND FORGOTTEN
HEY MONICA JUST KEEP POPPING OUT BABYS!!!
THAT IS YOUR LIFE MAYBE BET WILL LET YOU HOST A 30 MIN SHOW...NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOU ANYMORE..
No explanation required, Monica.
Just worry about your next album and taking care of your kids.
Good to know she'*** not broke.
Monica album is going to be straight i can't wait for the princess of r&b
Monica is going to have a fiyah album...........can't wait until R&B's princess hit the scene...........one of the best voices out
She's working with the same producers album after album. Maybe that's why her last one didn't sell. She was with those same people on After the Storm. I bought them both but maybe she should try sum1 different this time around to get more than the standard R&B feel.
I Love Monica And All That But Why Everytime M.T.O. post A Blog About Her She Always Feels The Need To Explain Herself. It's Not That Serious, M.T.o. Lies About A Bunch Of Celebrities And They Can Care Less! But This Is Like The 3rd Blog About Monica, That I Have Read And Then The Next Day She Was Explaining Herself! She Should Even Entertain The Rumors.....
cant front on her for growing up...thats a very good thing...and stop getting *** wrong MTO....
monica has always been real...not fake...fighting and str8 hood...so she addressed this her way...she's older and being a mother to her kids...bless her and the family.....
Good for her then, she need to come to our launch pary in ATL ON THE 23RD for our website
Love Monica. No fabrication of talent and abilities
This is I think the first real story with actual facts in months. That and they actually SPOKE to the someone they wrote about? Wow.
This must be a historic day for the site.
I know that's right!! back up off my girl she is doing her and she is loving motherhood and her family!!! she is still the Diva and i love her take care she is doing well. condradulations on the new baby to you and Rocko!
THIS JUST PROVES THAT SOME OF THE STORIES ON HERE ARE STRAIGHT ***$H**!!!! DONT BELEIVE EVERYTHING THAT YOU READ HERE ON MTO
mto stop the *** you no monica called and cursed yall a$$ out in a nice and nasty but inteligent way we all no monica dont play
Hmmm, I don't know. Monica probably had her people send this story to MTO to keep us talking. When she sees that her name isn't out there than her ppl sends a story to MTO and then she contacts MTO to clear up the story...that sounds like promotion. She doesn't want us to forget about her, but it's hard when you haven't had a hit since Moses was called to glory.
I don't know about this story cause Monica don't seem like the type to explain anything let alone her finances...and to MTO of all people?! Just don't know...
"lessons learned" sounds hot though!
At least she doing right by her money and not spendin it recklessly on bottles of moet and new hair weaves
Good for you Monica!
She's not in the clubs cause she's at home watching all those *** kids !! oh and just goes to show MTO.....YOU DONT BE HAVING YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT !!
I knew yall was lying yesterday.
And you know you got that *** $h1t azz story from one of your "faithful readers"...
CUT IT THE H/E/L/L OUT!
I feel you on that. Im so sick and tired of these corny *** people coming in here and advertising b*ullsh*t about dating and there lame *** music. It never has a *** thing to do with the subject that we are all dicussing. Now that, thats out the way. Monica is fire! She will come out with a banger soon. People just need to stop hatin and be patient. I do not believe that she is having financial problems.
well alright then u go gal if this some true to this story
To the people that are stating that Monica owes the public no explanation, let me say this. When you are an entertainer, most, if not all of your income is garnished from the public. Public perception of you, is of the utmost importance. Perception has a direct effect on your income. Again, I am not referring to those of you that may work at Walmarts. I am speaking only of entertainers. As an entertainer it is vital that you are seen as someone that is thriving, and not in any financial trouble. It lowers your ability to renegotiate any further deals. If you are perceived as being desperate for cash, you will be offered less for any future deals. So yes, it is most important that she clear up any rumors, that she is suffering financially, whether it is true, or not. Entertainers like politicians, owe everything to public perception. And that my friends is the bottom line. In addition, to you that think that celebrities do not read blogs, you are so mistaken. They not only read blogs, but some have gone as far as to hire personnel, for who’s only duty, is to read blogs all day long. Blogs are the new sounding boards of present, and future. Believe it or not, even the silly ish that some of you may have to say, is considered vital information.. Corporations do the same thing when they send out questionnaires, about what you think of their companies. It is called feedback. Some of you really should consider taking on a few business courses. E.
@artofwar....not necessarily...im STILL waiting on Hillary Clintons tax forms and she's a presidential candidate...so i guess Monicas financial business is further down the ladder and the public just has to wonder...me, personally, I dont consider the artists net worth when I purchase their album...plus, Janet is filthy rich but she's no longer marketable in entertainment...she could renegotiate all day, doesnt mean that she's gonna be re-signed cuz she's well off...even rich people have issues and its called human...the public doesnt necessarily sh*t on u when u r down, looka Britney...just a rebuttal and another side of the coin...
oh and...TELL IT MO!
This is how you know that you be OD'*** MTO!! Puttin waay too much on ur stories. Just like some crazy *** story you had about the Flavor of Love winner - that was some BS. SO please get it together and take a different approach to ur stories other than a National Enquire one!
Gone Gurl...MTO gotta get it str8 before posting so fast!
That's good that it sounds hot. She's had hot songs in the past, but one or two hot songs doesn't sell an album. That last song single that she dropped was a party song (don't remember the name - that should tell you something), that song was hot, but didn't make her album sell. We'll have to see what happens.
weather she's having financial troubles or not its definitely her business...as long as she's doing fine that's all that matters..hopefully she'll drop a hot album real soon
I hear that Monica..shes very talented and I actually look forward to hearing her new material..I dont think she should have even responded to MTO..I mean once you start, it doesnt stop..people are going to expect an explanation for everything..but I know that celebs are human and they definitely read these gossip sites..so its only natural for her to want to say her side of whats going on..anyway I will take Monica over all these new wanna be loser R&B chicks any day
Mo is my girl. You see, the young singers from that era, Aaliyah, Brandy and Monica were different. Brandy's mom said that she wouldn't have to work again after her first album which sold 5mil records(before the show, the movies and other platinum plus recrods like "Never Say Never"), Mo's mom had her back and they were smart.
Mo is the truth with her soulful voice. I hope she comes back with a true r&b record.
@voodoolady. You said it in your opening statement “not necessarily” but quite plausible still. As you mentioned, the artist that are as you say filthy rich, became filthy rich, with public financial support. Without that support revenues for the company that the said artist is contracted to, will begin to in decline. Therefore any renegotiations of said artist’s futher contracts, will lower the artist’s bargaining leverage. Giving the company the advantage. Rule number one you never want to find yourself renegotiating from a lesser position of power. In life, perception is everything, just as in business. E.
That's right Mo get MTO and the haters out of ur business and like ol' gyrl said you'll need 2 stop counting Mo paper & count ur own...lol. Mo congrats 2 u on ur new expended fam. I wish u much success in ur personal life & career. I been a fan of yours since u can out in the 90's. Can's wait 2 cop the new album. I read some of you'll comments. Some of you'll are crazy as hell...LMFAO
oops typo" extended fam"
I'm really glad to hear that!
I AGREE WTF IS MONICA TALKIN TO MTO IS SHE THAT DESPERATE FOR ATTENTION THESE DAYS I GUESS ROCKO AINT ENUFF ANYWAY MONICA DO U LOL...
ANYWAY WHAT CELEB GOT TIME TO TALK TO SOME *** MTO ROFL THATS SOME FUNNY *** BUT MONICA DOES SHE ALWAYS DOES LOL......
i work @ the hospital where monica had her babies' and she's really down to earth. she's not one of those "over the top divas...!" i know that this is a "gossip" site, but *** you guys provide an overwhelming apology when you're wrong?
I knew that wasn't her house when I saw it. That house is in the Niskey Lake Falls and she don't live there
the home of the smart sexy rich & crazy
I've always been a fan of Monica. She's got the whole package, and actually has REAL talent unlike stars like Ciara and Ashanti, who are really just good entertainers and dancers. It doesn't hurt that they're cute too, and that's the only reason they get by.
MTO WHERE IS YOUR PUBLIC APOLOGY, YAL NEED TO MAN UP AND SAY SORRY PUBLICLY
oh i cant wait to hear the album..monica..its been a min.
Glad to hear that.
I am happy to hear that!! Can;t wait to by the album!
Mo is well off financially. We're not stupid MTO. She has came out with far too mant albums and has been featured on way too many artist's songs, as well as soundtracks to not have that cake. Just b/c she's not in the limelight doesn't mean she's broke. That's a big *** laugh.
yeah she good..
If this is true, Monica should know better. Why would she think she needs to reach out to MTO or anyone else to dispel this story? Just know the truth, live your life and forget the rest. I'm glad that all is well with her though. I always did enjoy her work.
That is her business.
I am so sure this was not a shameless attempt to plug her new CD, her publicist thought it was a good idea to clear the air because MTO always making up sh*T with no knowledge or proof of the truth! She doesn't feel the need to respond or even aknowledge MTO because she has been here (industry) long enough to not adhere to nonsense. She is intelligent and talented...Keep doing your thing sweetheart!!!
Can't yall see that MTO made both the first story and this "correction story" up? This correction story was made up so people would think that celebrities actually acknowledge this bullsh*t-as* site. It's so the staff at MTO can feel validated by the fact that other people think celebrities career's can be terminated by this gossip site! It's really pathetic....
THE GIRL HAS HER FAMILY TO TAKE CARE OF, PPL U ALL NEED TO STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm glad that she cleared this up. Not that she had too. I love Mo. Been a fan since One of Them Dayz. Can't wait for the album. She is truly talented. Don't worry Mo. The South gonna hold you down baby girl.
I love monica, MTO u all just like to start ***
NEVA CAN YOU SAY SHE SPOKE TO MTO! U JUST AS *** STUPD IF YOU BELIEVE THIS JAKE *** SITE!..MONICA GOT TO MUCH POLISH FA THA *** RUMORS...SO YOU AND ANYONE ELSE WHO BELIEVES THIS CORNY *** CAN SUCK A FAT ONE.
yeah smart move Monica..
That woman is such a natural beauty. I love her music. So what she replied to MTO. You would reply if someone was talking *** about you to, right? I know I would if someone was trying to trash me. I can't wait till her next CD comes out..Ima cop that one just like I cop the rest...you want to know why she don't sell as much as the next. Because she presents herself as a lady when she sings, not a *** addicted, half naked, screaming banchee. Talent doesn't sell these days, azz does..
sad how people and websites pray for others downfall. We put them up there and love to tear them down at the same time. Crazy and what is even more crazy that she felt the need to have to reach out to a "gossip internet site" and clear it up?? get the *** outta here! that is a crying shame.
SHE'S GOOD THE CHAUFFEUR SAY SO THE RIDE WITH HER WAS REAL HOME GIRL HAS A GOOD HEAD ON HER:):)THAT'S ALL!
