R&B darling Monica has a relationship with Corey “C-Murder” Miller that stretches back decades. The couple dated when the veteran singer was just a teenager and purportedly got back together after she finalized her divorce from NBA star Shannon Brown in 2019.
But the New Orleans native is currently serving a life sentence at Elayn Hunt Correctional Center in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana for the alleged 2002 murder of 16-year-old Steve Thomas. Although C-Murder was convicted in 2009, a witness who said he saw C-Murder fire the gun recently recanted his testimony. Still, there’s been very little movement in the case.

In August 2020, Monica recruited Kim Kardashian to get involved with C-Murder’s legal case in an effort to get him released. As his case started to see renewed interest, he shared an Instagram post thanking the SKIMS founder and his former flame for the effort.
“7 months ago I called @monicadenise & she conferenced in @kimkardashian!” he wrote. “I did not know Moses had been working to reach Kim. After our call for the first time in 19 years, I slept!! You can rest behind these walls but never do you actually sleep! My case had been stagnant for years!”
But they aren’t the only ones fighting for C-Murder’s freedom. Aside from his brother Master P, Boosie Badazz took to his Instagram to ask Vice President Harris to look into C-Murder’s ongoing case and set him free just last year.
“Kamala Harris, I’m asking you to help my friend C-Murder, bro,” Boosie said in the video. “As president, vice president, I feel like you and Biden can do something about it. This man is innocent. He’s completely innocent, and he was convicted because of his rap name and the success of No Limit records.”
