Ladies, consider this is a public service announcement from Monica.
During a recent show in North Carolina, the veteran singer performed her own rendition of Shirley Murdock's "As We Lay" but stopped to issue a warning to any groupies trying to get near her husband Shannon Brown.
Here's how it all went down:
"If you steal some moments with what belongs to me, it's gon' be a code red situation. Let me explain why. I am still, the very one, that will kick down the door and smack the bitch," Monica told the crowd.
Any questions? Didn't think so.
Monica and Shannon celebrated their fifth anniversary on Nov. 22.
The singer's eighth studio album, Code Red, is due in stores on Dec. 18.
