Monica Quit Twitter Because of Stalker
Monica is revealing that a stalker forced her to suspend her Twitter account last month. Although it was originally believed that the singer, 30, was to cancel the account after negative responses following the announcement of her engagement to Los Angeles Laker Shannon Brown, the situation was much more serious than hecklers.
“I quit Twitter for a way deeper reason,” Monica said during an interview with The Big Tigger Morning Show on Washington D.C.’s WPGC 95.5. “At first we couldn’t really talk about it, but we had a way more serious situation than just somebody saying something on Twitter, and legally we couldn’t really talk about it at the time. It was just suggested. OK, come off Twitter, find out who some of these people are. It was not anybody on Twitter. It was someone keeping up with me through Twitter. It’s been going on for years, way before Twitter, but they were using Twitter to keep up with me.”
“Some people thought it was something that someone said to me on Twitter,” she continued. “It was absolutely nothing like that. People have talked about and been cruel toward me, and every other artist, long before Twitter came about, so it would never be something as simple as something that somebody said.”
The singer has since locked her account, so that her Tweets will only be available for her over 400,000 followers, whom she has to approve. In spite of the Twitter snafu, Monica has seen renewed success with the release of her gold selling album ‘Still Standing.’ The singer is said to prepping a new album which is scheduled to drop sometime next year.
