Keyshia Cole Lets The Drama Go

Keyshia Cole has caused quite a stir on blogs in the past few months by keeping mum while pictures of her sporting a growing baby bump appeared online. The singer, however, confirmed earlier today both her pregnancy by basketball player Daniel Gibson and her upcoming marriage to him in a statement that also included scathing remarks about her relationship with her estranged family. Keyshia’s mother, Frankie Lons, recently told Atlanta radio station V100 that Keyshia was already married and did so to avoid having her child be born out of wedlock. In her statement, Keyshia announced she was no longer is in communication with her mother or her sisters, Neffie and Elite.

“To all my friends and fans, it’s time that I clear the air,” Cole explained. “It’s not a secret that I haven’t been in contact with my mother Frankie, and my sisters Neffe and Elite and I never wanted to air out our differences to the public. While I won’t go into detail here I find it necessary to let you guys know I decided to stop communication with them because I was at a point in my life where I needed serenity and peace to move forward. Please know I love my family very much but it was time to let it go. You guys are a witness to a lot of what was happening from watching on air and online. Now that I am becoming a mom my passion for having a loving and peaceful home for my child is my #1 priority.”

Keyshia didn’t directly address her mother’s interview in the statement, but she did identify “constant false reports” that are interfering with her life, which includes her attempting to balance planning a wedding, preparing for the birth of her child, and finishing a forthcoming album. Cole characterized the stress as being unhealthy and emphatically said there are “only a few people that can official confirm or deny anything that’s happening in my life.” That list was limited to herself, Gibson and the singer’s publicist, along with fellow singer and close friend Monica — she concluded her statement by saying, “My girl Monica never lies.”

  1. Her and Fantasia are having similiar experiences with family. Its a shame that it can get like that but Keyshia has went above and beyond for her family and it is well documented on TV. She gave them a good start for a better life now they have to take over and do for themselves. I don’t blame Keyshia for taking a stand because if you don’t take care of yourself no one else will.

  2. @KOKO I agree….but at the same time all of this could have been avoided If she never had a reality show of her and her family In the first place…It was becoming to personal between all off them….and then for her mother and sister to have there ”so called reality show” It was just to tainted for me I was literally smh to the whole entire thing….but all Is well I HOPE Keyshia and daniel have a strong relationship and have a healthy delivery of her son

  3. KOKO you ain’t told nothing but the truth. Keyshia’s mother and sister are two of most classless women I have ever seen. They are attention whores who bring Keyshia down every time they open their mouth. On the other hand you make a very valid point too $IGNATURE BARBIE.Keyshia should have never agreed to go on television in the first place and air out her family’s dirty laundry.

  4. Saw it coming you could just tell that it was getting out of hand with them. Now watch for this, them to 1. Retaliate with some bull out of embarasement. However they will not be making a statement and going on, thye will use it as an ecuse to get back on t.v and be seen, cause they are really only relavent when Keyshia is out. THats why the show wasn’t so hot and they started showing two new episodes every night. 2. They are going to start sueing her over dumb ish cause they probably haven’t done anything smart with their money over there little 15 minutes and Keyshia is propably like…I’ve bought ya’ll homes and gave ya’ll a foundation, thye rest is on ya’ll. They will be bitter because they thought they would have it forever and ofcourse not because Kyeshia is the star…DUUUHHHH! Watch them get super new and unregretful!

  5. Yes, I agree guys. She has had the burden of taking care of her family for some time now. After hearing about her wanting BET to cancel “Frankie and Neffe” last year…I thought something would be wrong. Keyshia needed to some “me time”. And she is about to start new chapter in her life. She just needs a break.
    ‘Judging only’ from her show, her family doesnt seem like a group of people I would want to be around a lot.

  6. sometimes you gotta make changes. even with family we have to let the things go that drag us down. life is too short and we need to make ourselves happy before we try to help someone else.

  7. I never understood why Keyshia even let her Frankie, Neffe, and the whole bunch into her life, muchless introduce them to the world. Take notice on how she interacts with her adopted family, The Coles… NOW THAT’S FAMILY! Those other freeloaders maybe share her dna but that’s about it. KC has gone above and beyond for those scuttlebutts who don’t seem ready to elevate themselves.

    *Sidenote: I still don’t understand Key having a baby and planning a wedding with her bf of a grand total of 10 months! I sincerely hope they work.

  8. Keyshia Cole did just what she should have. I didn’t think it would last because her dam family is just too dam ignorant. I would have gotton the f**k away from them also. Go on with your life Keyshia and her stepmother will be there for her. “You go Keyshia”!

  9. U only have 1 life 2 live? So u did jst rite….. Fuck’em, u have ur own family 2 look after now, but life goes on………….. ur family b da 1st 2 bring u down, n hate it wen u make it, my only family is my kids?

  10. I’m glad Keyshia is finally standing up 4 herself, it’s ok to love your family…………it can be done at a distance!!! I wish you the best in the future with marriage and your blessed bundle of joy.
    I pray that Frankie go to treatment and Neffe stays in therapy. With the love of GOD all will be well.

  11. im glad that she finally come to her senses and let all that drama go! I mean, she deserves some peace and she is finally happy! Im glad that she can begin to piece together her life and in her relationship!
