So this is what Brandy meant by "secret wedding." The singer's alleged ex-husband, Robert Smith, told a New York radio station that the couple's short-lived "marriage" in 2002 was a ruse to protect the then-pregnant singer. In a statement, Brandy responds: "I am deeply hurt and shocked by the things that Robert has been saying. We had a spiritual union and true commitment to each other, and we still share a common bond through our daughter, Sy'rai." As the old saying goes, it's not a lie if you... On second thought, sometimes it's just a lie.
