Monica Speaks On Rocko Break-Up & Cheating Rumors

Monica spoke to the folks over at VIBE about her breakup with her longtime boyfriend and children's father Rocko. She says she was aware of the cheating rumors floating around the net and only took to Twitter to tell her fans and friends she was ok: “I chose Twitter as a forum to say what I felt at that time because there was no other way for me to say it once,” Monica told VIBE. “Had I been on radio, had I been interviewed, it would’ve been over and over again. That was just a quick way to say, ‘I know what’s taking place on the Web sites. I want you to know that I’m okay.’ But it really is a private matter. You just lose the privacy once you become an artist. So I'm not upset about it in any way.” It was a situation I didn’t ask to be in, so to speak. Once something is put up on a Web site and things about your personal life are spread all around, it’s unfortunate,” said Monica. “I don’t even know specifically who they spoke to, but I do know that I never felt so… I guess the word would be confused more than anything else. If you go to sleep and you wake up and you see something for the first time, it’s a little scary, you know. I’m too grown now to go investigating leads. The reality is that I have to play my position as their mom and do what it is that’s best for me.” “When I met him, I was only 19 years old and the good definitely outweighed the bad over the years so we don’t have any hard feelings towards one another,” said Monica. “Anything that involves children is gonna be more emotional. I think that’s the area that makes it more difficult… My priority is to make sure that whatever is done is best for them. I’m secondary in the picture and so is their dad and we have a close bond for over a decade. So regardless of what takes place in the media, there’s still certain things that will happen amongst the four of us for the rest of our lives and that’s just never gonna change.” Meanwhile, Monica's focusing on her kiddies and her upcoming Still Standing album release.

I saw it coming. I am sorry

I saw it coming. I am sorry to say but Monica, Tiny and them are living in a fantasy world. They need to upgrade...get themselves together and put a handle on it. I watched Monica's reality show and his vibe was off from the gate. I hope that she moves on and not look back. She has two precious little boys to worry about now and I am so, so sorry that children are involved but when you are not equally yoke....there's problems

What she NEEDS to do is get it poppin with that fine piece of chocolate Ochocinco!!! That video showed some chemistry! LOL... J/k. He doesn't seem mature enough for her. But they shole would make a purty couple. Kudos to Monica for a classy, mature response to a painful situation. Ladies should take note.

I feel that she is handeling

I feel that she is handeling the situation very well. I know that being an"Artist" your life is so public, and there is no privacy for personal issues.We have to realize artist are humans with a real life. They go through the same issues as everyday people,minus the statis.

Never let a man linger you

Never let a man linger you on. If you allow it, he will. If you are going to get married, get married. Ladies let's stop doing things backward. Engagement should not be longer that a year. Get married first, buy the house and then have the kids. This is why he will cheat, he will see that you have no order in your life. Get to know if first before you have kids, see if he is ready for commitment and a family.

Monica, I wish you and your

Monica, I wish you and your family the best. Whatever decision that you make is your own decision. Stand your ground and all will fall into place. If the relationship is still meant to be it will be. You are a strong black female that I admire. Sometimes men do not realize what they have or had until it's gone. I really loved seeing you and your family together and you all were so happy. I hope that you do find happiness again even if you do decide to work it out with your longtime mate. Just do you and do not worry about making others happy but what makes you happy. We all deserve happiness. Be your own woman!!!

As long as she keeps God first she'll be alright. She's strong, Still Standing baby!!!

I wonder which blog tipped her off?? There were many stories written about this dude's infidility. I wonder was it on Freddyo.com where a poster swore Monica's man was chopping her girl down.

Monica has always struck me

Monica has always struck me as someone who's wise beyond her years. What she said made a lot of sense. But DAMN seriously though, how good of a woman do you have to be these days to NOT get cheated on? Forget the trifling men involved, Is the world really that overpopulated with sluts, tramps and whores that will sleep with a man who's married or in a commitment AND with children? Women WE have to do better!! Again I say where are those damn scarlet letters when you need them? We should make these ho's register when they move into our neighborhoods like sex offenders.

@Christina FOREALL!!! Monica do like them thuggish creatures! I mean, C-Murder tho? I'm just sayin. She better not hook up with Gucci Mane or Wocka Flacka after this! lol...Hopefully she gets it together tho. Her album comes out tomorrow so maybe that's why she's spillin the re-fried beans! sidenote: HEALTH CARE REFORM PASSED, can i get an AMEN? :-)

Seriously this is how Mashonda should've dealt with hers. Now every other Magazine and blog cashed out of her ish and she's still left like "what happened"... Just take the high road and deal with your pain privately with the family and friends. Everyone else is just always out to cash in on a sad situation as is all NEWS.

@neverjudgeme,if its so much

@neverjudgeme,if its so much of a "pieceofpaper" why even bother getting engaged? monica was engaged to this bum for over 5+ years, she played house w/ this bum while he was out "doing him". smdh @ least tip does famiy things w/ tiny,this bum didnt even do that.

this just my opinion, monica

this just my opinion, monica has been aware of rocko cheating ways for sometime now, im talking since 2003, dont let her fool yall, she even had his b-day party @ magic city and body tap cause she knew he was always there messng w/ the girls. monica got in every magazine and every interview makin excuses as to why there wasnt getting married anytime soon, well the fact is they wasnt gettin married at all, rocko was barely @ the house anyway and he had no plans of marrying this girl ( be engaged is the new marriage). monica ate her own words trying to make it seems like rocko was the shit when he didnt even respect u enough to keep his dick in his pants. i like monica but sometimes she can be full of shit, and why does she act like shes keyshia cole publist? she makes there friendship seem more than what it is, amina is keyshia bff, the media thinks everyone is besty's.
La'trice's picture

Yeah, Monica likes hood

Yeah, Monica likes hood dudes. But I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with being "hood." She just needs a man that is more mature and is ready for an instant family because any man that's w/ her from now on will get just that -- an instant family. I would say she should try dating a guy outside of the industry, but I don't know about the guys before Rocko...but maybe she should try a lawyer/businessman type dude that has enough hood in him to keep her interested.
candytrice's picture

My opinion is that if her

My opinion is that if her true intention was to only address the breakup once, she would/should have done just that & not made any further public statement. Speaking to Vibe about it smells like a nicely planned PR move to drum up sympathy (read: support) for the new album. It could backfire - as her promo appearances start to pick up, instead of focusing on the music, no doubt there will be those radio & tv personalities who'll only want to talk scandal. I'm def a Monica fan & didn't need any explanation about her breakup - I was already going to buy the album. I think her reality show more than accomplished its purpose to get us ready for the album - no need for a statement. Alleged cheater or not, you see Rocko's been mum...

I like the way Monica handles herself. So many people lose sight of the most important people...the children at times like this, but she has done the opposite and put their interests first. A lot of men and women both can learn from her maturity & poise.

Not every woman wants to walk

Not every woman wants to walk down the aisle and get that "piece of paper". it means absolutely nothing except to the government. I drank the damn "kool aid" and got married for 6 years and then divorced and i can tell you right now that i can be committed to a man w/o any damn piece of paper. committment is just that committment. in the Bible it says that marriage is the bond b/t man, woman and God. it does not say anything about a piece of paper. some of you women need to realize that not every woman wants to jump the damn broom. I had sex in my marriage to procreate now i have sex just for pleasure. and yes i am safe with it... moving on now...

ROFL @ c'mon now! AMEN!!! if you want privacy, why wasnt the FIRST statement enough? is someone beating her to go on twitter or whereever to speak on this topic? take a hint from your girl keyshia cole who went straight GHOST! she released one statement and moved on. monica's even telling more of keyshia's business than keyshia is. people are gonna talk...you dont have to always flap with the flappers. its like she's trying to FORCE us to believe she's classy, mature & a good mother. something smells fishy...and it isnt just rocko's crustache and constipated smile/frown-SMH

Why do folks think that

Why do folks think that Monica's single status was "his" choice. She was right not to "husband up" a dude that wasn't in her tax bracket. Look at them now! Child support is a lot less to pay than alimony. Ask Britney Spears.

Co-sign and co-sign @ "The Boss." I am sincere (and not judgmental) when I say I truly wish my sisters would quit having multiple kids for these dudes who are not committed to the relationship. She should not have had another kid without a commitment. We have to start honoring ourselves and our bodies more! No more giving your everything to someone who isn't worth anything.

what i don't get is who is

what i don't get is who is forcing her to make these public announcements? is anyone even talking about this aside from the YBF and maybe bossip? stop all that twittering mess talking about your life, it speaks volumes to your personality and to the amount of attention you need. Don't you have an album coming out or something tweeter tha.

Ladies, never allow yourself

Ladies, never allow yourself to be a man's girlfriend for years and years with no commitment. Even if he puts a ring on it. If he ain't ready to walk done the aisle then go on with you life because you wasting your time. Demand what you want in a relationship and know that your worth it! Men/woman will only do what you let them. Remember that!
