There’s some drama surrounding Brandy Norwood and Monica Brown, but this time it’s been ignited by Twitter.
It all went down after Monica shared a birthday message honoring Whitney Houston early this morning. She posted a black and white photo of the late icon with the caption, “Happy Heavenly Birthday Nippy … You still inspire many & touch hearts daily… You will forever be the greatest …. You will forever be missed.”
Several hours later, Brandy took to Instagram to share her own post, which included a collage of photos of herself and Whitney together.
She captioned the post, “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.”
The post reignited the feud between Brandy and Monica as many of Monica’s fans were among the people to immediately start shading Brandy for her seemingly “self-centered” post.
People also inundated her Instagram post with comments, which she addressed to in a long response directed at Monica.
“Monica needs to really check her evil ass fans,” Brandy began. “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 also suggested Monica stop her fans from attacking her, noting they’re “low key Brand fans anyway.”
