    R&B singer, actress, model and reality star Brandy Norwood claims that her fake marriage to Robert Smith sounded the death knell for her career. In her new Behind the Music special, the formerly braided singer said, "The lie about being married was the fall of my career."

    Brandy had told Tyra Banks that, "I felt the need to lie about it because at the time I was 23 years old. I had this good girl image...I felt the pressure of what people would think and disappointing little girls." Smith, the father of her daughter Sy'rai with, revealed the fake marriage and said they were never wed.

    Do you think the fake marriage was the reason Brandy's career faltered and stalled?
