Brandy revealed some information about why she lied to the world:

Singer Brandy opens up for the first time to Us Weekly about her fake marriage and the “traumatic” car accident that left one person dead.

In 2002, Brandy Norwood announced she’d secretly wed music producer Robert Smith the year before – just four months before giving birth to their baby, Sy’rai, when just 22 years old. The pair even acted as husband and wife on MTV series Brandy: A Special Delivery, which documented their daughter’s birth.

But after calling it quits in 2003, Smith told a radio station the marriage never happened.

“I lied because of the fear of what people would think and the pressure to be a good role model,” Norwood, 29, reveals to Us Weekly in her first interview on the topic.

“Our relationship was very real, we just weren’t legally married,” she adds.

Poor thang had no clue we already knew why she lied. We didn’t believe that whole ‘Moesha’ act for one second and knew those young prep school backs were getting tore up, just like the other girls.

    I dont think anyone really cared or ever really believed her after he put her on blast…

    @ Katherine: I don’t think anyone cared before that.

    Dam Brandy. Do you not know what kind of backward debauached community you come from? A community that sees no shame in a pregnant woman with no husband and is quite proud of it? If anything having a husband while pregnant would have been looked down upon by these vandals.

    As a strong indepedent Black woman, I am ashamed that you pretended to have a husband while married. We as strong indepedent black women dont need a man and we certainly dont need a man to raise our kids. We can do it ourselves. Just make sure the governments keeps up with half the rent.

    I swear If that FIVEhead get any bigger….Damn!!! She gonna need a hat on at all times.

    I’d respect an un-wed mother more than a bold-faced liar any day.

    You sound like you have some experience and are intelligent, but that may very well have been one of the most ignorant thoughts you allowed to materialize in written form. Don’t be silly; look at the black community as a whole. It’s true that some black women are very strong and do exactly what it is they have to do in order to raise their families, but if you think you don’t need a man to assist with child rearing you are sadly mistaken. Study after study has proven that when both a mother and father are involved, a child is statistically more likely to turn out to be a productive member of society. That isn’t something I made up and it isn’t a topic of debate; it’s fact. So, while you may not need a man to raise a child, that child most certainly needs the input of their father to have the best chances of being healthy, through and through. Look at the young ladies whose father’s have been absent and the rate at which they engage in risky behavior, or the self esteem issues they have. We don’t even have to talk about the little boys, because I trust you’ve heard, seen, and read enough about that to understand the effect. I just thought I’d take an opportunity to write directly to you, in a very non-threatening way. I hope you understand. Be cool.

    i love brandy. been a fan from day one. in my opinion brandy or who ever was handling her career at the time is VERY smart. why possible ruin your reputation, put your hard earned money on the line and marry some one who if you marry you will most likely get divorce. case and point BRITANNY SPEARS! shout outs to BRANDY! do yo thang girl lol!

  • Kigali (Black females defend the weave like their new born!!!)

    I have some respect for Brandy. Atleast she has some shame. Thats the problem with black females today, they have NO SHAME. No concept of honor or shame, everything they do is to be defended no matter how trife it is.

  • Pynk

    I knew it was fake, he acting shady on that t.v. show. I knew he wasn’t no good. Or her husband!

    @justvisit,

    I would like to introduce you to my friend Sarcasm. Sarcasm meet justvisitin. Justvisitin meet Sarcasm.

  • justvisitin

    @ Kigali

    Sarcasm, it’s been an absolute pleasure. Thank you so much for doing what you do so well.

    justvisitin<—- cursing uncontrollably and mad that he was 1 up’d by sarcasm

    Brandy should of just told the truth like Brittney little sister. It is no secret that Teenagers are sexually active. I am sure she is dealing with the consequences of being a single mother.

    Raising a child alone is one of the hardest task that single mothers go through regardless of their financial status. Having a child with no father in the home is one of the hardest jobs in the world.

  • chantel

    I co sign with BLAQ 100%. Look at Fantasia being a single mother from the south didn’t stop her from accomplishing her dreams. We are all humans who make errors. There is no such character as a picture perfect Moesha.

  • pat

    its not that deep….so she lied…we all have…she has a beautiful daughter now and has moved on

  • alexandra

    pple make mistakes, i respect Brandy, that is really brave to admit that she lied….

    i guess she was afraid for her image, in the media

  • Ty

    Man she ugly as hell

  • Kigali (Black females defend the weave like their new born!!!)

    @chantal,

    I am sorry sistah but it is 2008. These arent mistakes. These people are being intentionally reckless. How the hell do you accidentally get pregnant with so many different birth controls out there?

    By the looks of it, for black females who are getting knocked up, these arent mistakes either but OUR culture. A very sad culture.

  • Necy

    that’s why she should have gotten married before getting knocked up!!

  • Baby Girl

    @justvisitin

    I definetly co sign with what you had to say it was very enlightning to read something meaningfull on here.

  • Lisset

    Brandy is so beautiful!! I love her. Such a big fan. Can’t wait for that album to drop. She’s the REAL QUEEN B. She always brings it with her albums!!

  • ...have him making ME pancakes in the mornin'

    everyone makes mistakes. most of us are just lucky enough that the sh*t don’t get broadcast for millions of people to know.

    rich is cool

    fame…not so much

  • dayg715

    this has-been still has a career?

  • simplygeorgeous

    For you judgemental and negatively critical ass commentors on here talking about how you are “ashamed” at Brandy for coming clean about her marriage, need to take a long ass look in the mirrow and reflect back on your own damn life to see if you’ve always made a perfect decision. NOT!! In fact, hella not!!! Don’t try to sit your ass at a computer and past judgement on this young lady. Whatever deceits/lies she ever portrayed in the public eye, I’m sure she has brought it to the Good Lord (sorry God for my profanity) and He has forgiven her. And that’s the biggest and most importantant acceptance that man should be striving for, not from another so-called “strong, black women” or this fake ass society that we live in. Please!!!1

  • grownfolks

    that’s life…sh*t happens. we all make mistakes. I hope she is in a good place now!
