The feud between Brandy and Monica reignited on Wednesday, the day of the late Whitey Houston’s birthday. Right when you though their beef was over, a new controversy was birthed.
It all started when Monica shared a touching post about Houston’s special day on Instagram. She wrote: “Happy Heavenly Birthday Nippy … You still inspire many & touch hearts daily… You will forever be the greatest …. You will forever be missed.”
Later that day, Brandy posted her special tribute to the late singer, writing: “Lord have mercy on my soul!!! Happy Born Day Whitney. You live on in me… I can feel your Spirit inside of me and all around me. My angel, my friend, my fairy God Mother. I love you forever… thank you for trusting me with the torch!!! I remember every moment with you and I and I will cherish these miraculous moments forever and ever! I love you…. 8/9-2/11 #WhitneyHouston.”
Twitter, however, started to call out Brandy for creating a selfish and self centered post. So of course, they went into attack mode. To give you a little history, Brandy and Monica were both very close to Whitney, but somewhere along the way, the Boy Is Mine collaborators started to grow distant.
After being completely berated on social media by Monica fans, Brandy fired back with one hell of a message directed right at Monica.
“Monica needs to really check her evil ass fans,” Brandy wrote in a lengthy comment. “It’s so much stuff I can post about the hateful things they say to me… but I will never have time for that. Always thinking something is about her. It’s not!!!!…Me and Whitney have nothing to do with anyone but the two of us…we made history and I cared more about being with her than I did about anything else.”
She continued, “I’m heartbroken that she isn’t here and the things I say about her are my true feelings and based on the things she said to me. #Torch is a purpose and it is an understanding to help me get through the fact that she passed period the way she did and passed on my birthday. I’m crushed for life because of it. It’s petty for everything that I say about Whitney for someone to have the audacity to think it’s about someone else other than her.”
Brandy added, “Come get your hating ass pigeons and put them in their place the way I did for you when the starz was out of place. They’re low key Brandy fans anyway… always lurking and always creating new pages talking to Me. I’m not to be F–ked with today! If this was rap or hip hop you would be praised for speaking your mind but since it’s rnb you have to take the so called high road… well because I can rap just look at this as my high road.”
Sound off: Is Twitter to blame for being the igniting fire? Or should have Brandy just kept quiet?
