Vondecarlo has a scar on her tummy, result of a tummy tuck she has to get rid of some loose skin, a scar that she has been keeping hidden for so many years..
I felt that writing a song about it wasn’t enough. I wanted to show people what I was feeling as well, so the best place for that, I felt, was my album cover. I decided to reveal my scar on my album cover (and throughout my digital booklet), which was very scary, but also very freeing. I’ve been insecure about it and hiding it for years, and this album in so many ways (both mentally and physically) is helping me to let go of all of my fears and accept myself for who I am”.
Vondecarlo and O’Neal dated for years before getting married, she was by her hubby’s side when he a diabetic suffered that terrible stroke last month, on the early hours of November 29th at his home, Vondecarlo Brown said goodbye to her beloved Patrice.
