Whitney Houston Birthday Tributes Reignites Brandy vs. Monica Feud
The late great pop Whitney Houston would have celebrated her 54th birthday on Wednesday, August 11st. 

Two of her famous mentees Brandy and Monica both shared birthday messages to Ms.  Houston on social media but the end result was Brandy & Monica’s 90s feud starting over again in 2017.

Monica First shared a birthday message and her innocent post didn't go over well with Brandy, who wanted the world to know she was closer to the late singer. 

The birthday greetings turned ugly and Brandy clapped back at Monica's fans.

Monica had shared a beautiful black and white photo of Whitney with the caption, "Happy Heavenly Birthday Nippy ... You still inspire many & touch hearts daily... You will forever be the greatest .... You will forever be missed."

Happy Heavenly Birthday Nippy ... You still inspire many & touch hearts daily... You will forever be the greatest .... You will forever be missed ❤️

Hours later, Brandy got on Instagram to share a collage of photos of herself and Whitney together.

Lord have mercy on my soul!!! Happy Born Day Whitney. You live on in me... I can feel your Spirit inside of me and all around me. My angel, my friend, my fairy God Mother. I love you forever... thank you for trusting me with the torch!!! I remember every moment with you and I and I will cherish these miraculous moments forever and ever! I love you.... 8/9-2/11 #WhitneyHouston

But, that wasn't all. She shared another:

Nippy, I wanted to be exactly like you... mannerisms and all... I didn't have your Range but everything else I could do that you did I tried to do. Then It dawned on me, I can never do what you did exactly the way you did it and then I found myself being like myself because of everything you taught me! You said, be yourself and later on after you said that, I became my own artist but with your inflections. Happy Birthday... you live on in me and no one on this planet loves you the way I do.(yeah I said it because that is what I know because that's what you told me) There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you.

And then after she posted a 3rd one, Fans of the singers took notice and it wasn't long before Twitter users threw shade at Brandy over her self-centered posts. They poked fun at Brandy trying to diss Monica for simply wishing Whitney a happy birthday.

Brandy was enraged and took to social media to blast Monica's 'evil' fans.

She wrote, "Monica needs to really check her evil [expletive] fans. It's so much stuff I can post about the hateful things they say to me... but I will never have time for that. Always thinking something is about her. It's not!!!!...Me and Whitney have nothing to do with anyone but the two of us...we made history and I cared more about being with her than I did about anything else."

She continued, "I'm heartbroken that she isn't here and the things I say about her are my true feelings and based on the things she said to me. #Torch is a purpose and it is an understanding to help me get through the fact that she passed period the way she did and passed on my birthday. I'm crushed for life because of it. It's petty for everything that I say about Whitney for someone to have the audacity to think it's about someone else other than her."

Brandy also told Monica to stop her fans from attacking her, noting they're "low key Brand fans anyway." 
"Come get your hating [expletive] pigeons and put them in their place the way I did for you when the starz was out of place. They're low key Brandy fans anyway... always lurking and always creating new pages talking to Me. I'm not to be [expletive] with today! If this was rap or hip hop you would be praised for speaking your mind but since it's rnb you have to take the so called high road... well because I can rap just look at this as my high road."

Brandy concluded her rant, writing, "Too real to be fake and because this is my idols birthday, I'm allowed to defend my position in her life and hers in mine. That's what I have to hold on to."

Update: She had extra time today because she’s clapped back at critics and threw more shade at Monica.
