J.B. Smoove welcomed a daughter from a previous relationship BEFORE he wed Shahidah Omar in 2007.

Monay has avoided the spotlight for the majority of her life, but in 2023 she appeared on the ABC reality competition program Claim to Fame.

Who is Monay on ‘Claim to Fame’?

Contestants on the ABC program Claim to Fame attempt to conceal their celebrity ancestry. Monay competed in season 2 of The Masked Singer, and although she didn’t win, she did place second to Gabriel, the younger brother of the show’s host Nick Cannon.

She was eliminated when Gabriel correctly identified her as the J.B. Smoove of Curb Your Enthusiasm fame.

What is the real name of Monay?

Monay changed her name in an effort to conceal her celebrity heritage. She revealed that she was named after her father and that her real name is Jerrica Brooks during the Season 2 finale.

According to Entertainment Weekly, “My father is Jerry Brooks, a.k.a. J.B. Smoove, and I’m basically the female version of him.”

What profession does Monay have?

Although Monay’s father may be well-known, little is known about her personal life. Her current job is unknown, but she revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that she works closely with her father, which is why he was concerned about her appearing on the show.

He was initially very excited, but two days before the event, she said, “he started to get nervous because I’m an only child and I work directly with my dad all the time.”

“We hang out, email back and forth, and make calls together on a daily basis. He became anxious when I told him I was going to be on the show. Who is going to take care of everything, he wonders? I’m going to miss you, and so on. He was happy for me again after I made sure everything was set up properly. He simply becomes anxious.
