Then, by 2011, Monica was single again and had temporarily moved in with Rob in Atlanta, Georgia. On September 24, 2011, she went to a concert with her brother.
However, Monica had told Rob earlier that she would be taking their daughter. When he returned home later, he was angry with that Monica left their daughter home. Rob then left her a message saying he was kicking her out of the house. The incident took place sometime during the early hours of September 25, 2011.
