Monica Arnold is going through a painful divorce from her husband Shannon Brown. The R&B singer chronicled the end of her marriage on the last season of the VH1 hit series Friends & Family Hustle.

Well apparently her husband isn't as broken up about their split.

Shannon appeared on the hit show Sister's Circle yesterday, and he spoke about his marriage ending - and he was laughing about it.

The interviewers asked Shannon, "Publicly you've been going through a lot. Tell the viewers how you've been able to navigate [the divorce with Monica] and co-parent."

Shannon responded while laughing, "I haven't been going through a lot of nothing." He then suggested that Monica is "blowing up [the divorce] for entertainment purposes."

Shannon added, "It's funny a lot of people have the same idea [as you]. When they see me they're like are you ok? And I'm like - I'm fine." He then started laughing with the hosts.

R&B star Monica filed for divorce from her husband, former Los Angeles Laker Shannon Brown, in Atlanta in early March, TMZ reports.

A rep for Monica did not immediately respond to request for comment, while a rep for Brown could not be reached.

The Grammy winner, 38, secretly married the athlete, 33, in a private L.A. wedding ceremony in November 2010, and the pair kept their matrimony under wraps for months before confirming the news in January 2011. Monica (born Monica Denise Arnold) and Brown later tied the knot again, in front of family and famous friends, at a second ceremony and reception in July 2011.

On Instagram, Monica hasn’t worn a rock on her wedding finger since a Feb. 25 post.
