Shannon Brown tweeted on Saturday night the following:
The RUMOR originally started on May 13th, on a gossip website entitled, Black Sports Online, in which the author claimed that Shannon Brown, who is married to R&B singer Monica, slept with Gasol’s wife and caused a rift in the locker room, and Gasol’s poor play in the playoffs.
Kobe Bryant was asked about the original rumor in his exit interview that Gasol and Bryant had issues off the court, and he discussed why these rumors seem to keep creeping up.
“People will reach for absolutely anything, when we struggle. They’ll pull for any crap, any B.S. that they possibly can, and invent things, and it was ridiculous” Bryant said.
The above quote from Bryant still rings true on this latest rumor. Shannon Brown addressing the rumor publically on twitter probably makes it a bigger rumor then it actually was. However, its almost certain that Brown got so many questions, that it was therapeutic for him to take to twitter to silence the rumors.
