Rumors have been swirling for months that the were separated, but Monica shut the speculation down—although some fans noticed that she stopped wearing her wedding ring in photos on her Instagram page.

Just before the news, Brown posted a few cryptic messages that seem to possibly reference the split. In one of them, he gets quite specific about what might be going on.

The message read:

“God won’t allow you to go thru what you can’t come out of. As a matter of fact He the one who is putting you thru it. Pay attention while you’re going thru tho. The people that are around you will show you who they really are and what they really all about. Then it’s up to you to act and move accordingly. You also gotta figure out what part you’ve played in the f**kery. Don’t lie to yourself, protect yourself at all times and don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself and fight back. #WarReady #FreeGame”

The other message is a little more vague, but still alludes to some issues:

“Once you find that peaceful place it’s up to you to protect it at all cost. Don’t allow yourself to get out of character and misplaced. #PEACEFULLYWARREADY”

You may remember that Monica and Shannon’s marriage was plagued with infidelity rumors in the past. Back in 2016, rumors were running rampant that Brown was cheating on Monica with multiple women, however they seemed to work through it at the time and remained together.

Reportedly, the divorce documents are unsealed, meaning that details about child support and/or spousal support are likely to be revealed at some point.
