Happy 30th Birthday Monica! Rain Can’t Ruin Her Star Studded Celebration

- By Bossip Staff

Monica, fiance Shannon Brown and a host of celebrity friends celebrated her 30th birthday at Philippe Chow on Melrose in Los Angeles last night despite the downpour of rain. Bossip spies tell us Shannon never left Monica’s side, and her engagement sparkler lit up the room. Check out lots more photos and details below:

The decor was pink and white with candies in opulent vases and hot pink M&M with Monica’s face on the candy and there was pink taffy and various other candies for guests to sample. Monica’s cake was decorated with a huge pink Hermes bag, and she also received a Hermes bag as her birthday gift .

The birthday celebration was also a fundraiser for breast cancer. $5,000.00 was given in Monica’s name to be donated to the Susan B Gorman Foundation.

Guests in attendance included lots of Shannon’s Lakers teammates and their wives and girlfriends including Lamar and Khloe Kardashian-Odom, Derek Fisher and his wife, Brian and Nikki Shaw and it looks like Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan have worked through their domestic fracas because they were also there together.

Other guests included Ludacris, Angela and Vanessa Simmons, Kathy Griffin, Eric Benet, Frank Gatson, Ngo , Tamala Jones, Kita Williams, Persia White , Golden Brooks, Trina and Steph Jones.

The night wasn’t without a few snafus. In addition to the bad weather, at one point during the party some idiot hit a switch and the rain came pouring into the party as the retractable roof pulled back getting a number of the guests wet.

Of course with Jermaine Dupri on the wheels of steel, he kept the jam packed party going all night.

Sounds like it was a blast, Happy 30th Monica!

    Im sooooo damn happy for Monica she is truly a beautiful woman and seems very humble and deserving of all her blessings.

  • Caramel Cat™

    Actually Monica is almost a year older than me, if my memory serves me correct, her first song ‘Don’t take it Personal’ came out in late ’94 early ’95 and she was like 15 at the time…so the math makes sense… 🙂
