AceShowbiz - Monica continues to show her support to her former boyfriend C-Murder, who has been put behind bars. Recently, the singer visited the rapper in jail and the two looked happy together in photos from their reunion.
In the pictures which have circulated online, the former couple flashed a smile as they posed together with the backdrop of an image of a gazebo. Dressing casually in a long-sleeved T-shirt, she stood in front of him in one of the images.
Another snap featured C-Murder putting his hand around Monica's shoulders as they stood side by side. The incarcerated rapper wore a blue button-up shirt in both photos. It's not clear when exactly the pictures were taken.
Monica and C-Murder briefly dated before he was arrested for a murder in 2003. In September of that year, the former TRU member was found guilty of beating and shooting a fan, 16-year-old Steve Thomas, at a nightclub in Harvey, Louisiana. The New Orleans native was sentenced to life in prison on August 14, 2009 and has been serving his sentence at the Louisiana State Penitentiary.
Despite his conviction, his loved ones, including his brother Master P, have continued to argue his innocence and fight for his freedom. In November 2021, Monica had the audience chant, "Free C-Murder," at a concert.
At the time, C-Murder, whose real name is Corey Miller, reacted by tweeting, "My baby kilt it at the show .Her sanging this outfit a #TRUqueen we knew from day 1 this was real love. No opinion changes a fact and we got the history to prove that . If you know me you know how Im coming bout her."
In January of this year, Monica also posted a throwback photo of her and C-Murder on her Instagram Story. "Always had my back," she wrote over the old photo, "Salute to the General & greatest Gentleman I've ever known … I miss you. @cmurder."
