As we previously reported, singer Monica was in the process of divorcing her husband, Shannon Brown. Now, their divorce is officially final, according to reports fromĀ That Grape Juice .

On Tuesday (Oct. 22), Monica appeared at a Georgia courthouse where their union was formally dissolved in a process that took about 10 minutes.

Monica showed up to court. However, Brown did not. Monica and Brown were married for almost a decade and the former pair initially split back in March.

Monica and Brown share their six-year-old daughter, Laiyah, and Monica also has two older sons from a previous relationship with rapper Rocko.

The “Commitment” singer had previously gone by @MonicaBrown on social media. Prior to her divorce being finalized, she changed her social media handle to her first and middle name, @monicadenise.
