Brandy fans are defending the singer-actress against another round of weight jabs and rumors after “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” star Moniece Slaughter posted a shady Instagram message.

“Praying that your baby is born healthy and strong @4everbrandy. Sorry, I didn’t make it to EMC in time to congratulate you in person,” Slaughter wrote Monday, July 2.


The petty, shady post is the latest in the beef between Slaughter and Brandy and follows the reality star blaming the “Star” actress — who recently became a series regular — for her brother’s disappearance last year.

“The Norwood family and my family have been very good friends for the past 15 years. … And she knew what he struggled with from … his addiction, as my Mom had confided in her about that prior to,” Slaughter said in a video of her brother’s schizophrenia and bipolar mania. “And she knew about the mental health issues he was suffering with. And privately she convinced him not to take the meds. She convinced him that a little wine here and there would be okay.”

Slaughter said Brandy’s convincing led her brother down an “emotional downward spiral” where he assaulted their parents and fled the home, leading to a police search for him.

The new post led fans to swiftly defend the crooner by dragging the LHHH star.


“Giiirrrrlllllll if you don’t go get some vocal lessons @moniece_slaughter.”

“She did NOT come for the original Queen B.”

“Ol girl needs to take her meds and someone needs to take her phone away 🙄.”

Brandy has faced rumors about her weight for a while now and addressed things head on back in March when pregnancy rumors ran rampant.

“I didn’t think the pregnancy thing was body-shaming,” she told TrueExclusives. “I didn’t feel that from people who obviously saw that I put on weight and thought I was pregnant. I went on a foodcation, because I’d been eating clean for like seven-something odd years, in the gym, every day, playing tennis. I’m like, ‘Yo, I’m tired of this crazy discipline. I need something to eat! I want some pizza, I want some pasta, I want some cake! I want something other than salmon, broccoli, and asparagus.’”
