R&B songstress Monica Brown threw a birthday party for her 10-year-old son Rocko and some folks are gagging over the alleged $70K price tag. Peep pics from the lavish-kiddie bash inside….
Monica Brown threw her son Rodney “Rocko” Ramone Hill III (above), a fabulous 10th birthday party and it’s the talk of Atlanta. Why? Well…..rumor has it that the party cost a whopping $70,000.
In the grand scheme of things, that’s not a lot of money for the wealthy. For the record, the Browns (shown atop with daughter Laiyah) ain’t broke. Of course, Monica and hubby Shannon Brown didn’t foot the entire “alleged” $70K bill…..Lil’s Rocko’s dad Rocko also contributed to the party’s cost. Also…..we have a little inside dish on why Monica & Rocko splurged on the bash.
The affair was held at Georgia Aquarium and carried a “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme because the show is a favorite of both Lil Rocko and Rocko (shown above with son Romelo).
Here’s the backstory – we were told that Monica specifically requested the Ga Aquarium workers and staff “turn up”
for the kids, because Lil Rocko and his friends/classmates have had an emotionally stressful year.
Earlier this year, Lil Rocko and his classmates lost their teacher and then a fellow student died following a violent home invasion. Monica talked about both events on past Instagram postings. Very sad.
Rocko and the Code Red songstress wanted to make sure the kids had a good time.
Monica’s mom, Marilyn Best, was a proud grandma!
Monica tweeted, “Thank you to our family and friends that made this birthday party both Magical and Memorable!! Rocko is STILL saying it was his best birthday ever LOL… Every detail brought joy and every guest showed enormous amounts of love #WeAreSoGrateful #Rockos10thBirthday”

So…….did the party really cost $70K? Monica isn’t confirming (or denying).
