R&B star Monica has a strong family bond with Ludacris - her mother is married to the rapper's uncle.
The Boy Is Mine collaborated with the hip-hop star, real name Christopher Bridges, on the title track of her latest album, Still Standing, and she reveals their relationship goes back years, and they're actually related.
She tells Hip-Hop Weekly, "We grew up together. My mum married his uncle over two decades ago. Before there was Ludacris and Monica, there was Christopher Bridges and Mo and we were just always close."
