She’s ‘Still Standing,’ But So Much For Changing The Subject… Monica Talks Tweeting, Cheating And Rocko

- By Bossip Staff

It’s only been a few weeks since Monica declared her romance was done with Rocko over Twitter, but even after promising a permanent subject change Monica is still discussing the breakup. Pop the hood for the latest.

In a recent interview with VIBE.com Monica addressed the breakup and why she chose Twitter as the place to inform the public about it:

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.”

Prior to the announcement, rumors floated that Rocko had been cheating on the singer, 29, who said she was aware of all the hearsay and felt confused with what was happening.

“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.”

Despite the relationship’s ending, Monica said the two remain on good terms and that their journey together has been mostly positive.

“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.”

Mo… really? We really hope all this talkin about Rocko’s wack azz is some kind of strategy to sell records. We didn’t want to talk bad about your babydaddy before, but seriously, kicking that ugly mug thug out of your bed is LONG OVERDUE!

Monica’s fifth album Still Standing hits online and retail stores today.

    Monica he did you a favor, you don’t see what the rest of us see. And that happens to be a scub.

  • mimi79

    I have been a Monica fan since I was 15, but I think she needs to let go of the hood(keeping it real mentality and the thugs. It was all fun and games to date hardheads when she was younger, but now she’s a mother of two boys and a grown azz woman so she needs to step her preference of men up. Rocko never really acted like he even wanted to be seen with her in public.

  • ama

    Monica is GORGEOUS!!

  • Hannibal

    WHO CARES IF HE CHEATED, ALL OF US MEN DO. IF ANYTHING, SHE NEEDS TO APOLOGIZE FOR BREAKING UP WITH HIM FOR NOTHING. ANY MAN THAT SAYS HE DOESN’T CHEAT IS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH.

  • resurrected

    This is why waiting to have children in a family seems more profitable but now days any home is hard to keep together for the men and woman… Also it really depends who you pick as the parents to your children as well but life itself is a learning process and if Rocko made the wrong move he will feel it eventually…

  • chocalatetunda

    THATS GOOD SHE LEFT. HE HAS NOT FOUND HIMSELF YET CAUSE IF IT HAD HE WOULD HAVE BENN STOP THUGING ONCE HE HAD CHILDREN. THEY R ON TO DIFFERENT PAGES IN THEIR LIFE. THATS GOOD SHE LET THAT GO. MOVE ON IN YOUR LIFE AND KEEP DOING YOU.

  • Taisha from chicago!

    LOL Monica is a trip and she always has her grown up media friendly answers ready for the public, but she knows she had her suspicions long before she discovered the truth about his infidelity and snapped on him and his jump off like any sister would do who’s been played by a man she’s been taking care of. Oh yeah, Monica! You’re never to old to investigate the object of your affection especially when it comes to your health,wealth,sanity and children’s sake.
