Keyshia Cole Says She’s Done With Daniel ‘Booby’ Gibson For Good: “We’re Not Going To Work It Out”
In an interview with Harvey Levin and Charles Latibeaudiere of TMZ Live, Keyshia Cole spoke about the messy public spats she has been having as of late with her estranged husband, Daniel “Booby” Gibson. It was an interesting interview, as Cole spoke openly on why things between the two had fallen apart, and fallen apart in the public eye yet again. It seems that Cole finds social media therapeutic, because when she was asked if she regretted airing him out on online numerous times, she responded with “yeah, so no, I don’t. Uh uh.” She wants everyone to know that at this point, their focus is on their child and nothing more. It’s a wrap.
At the beginning of the chat, Cole was asked why she was angry about Gibson’s attempts to get to know other women, considering that they were separated and working on their “friendship.” She had this to say:
“Be clear that the friendship stage is within the marriage. I wouldn’t get back with you just to be a ‘friend.’ We’re married. Clearly. Every time we go through things that’s an issue: ‘You’re still a married woman.’ ‘You’re still a married man.’ So if we connect and say that we’re going to start off as friends…I’m trying to figure out how it didn’t work out in the beginning. We’re always supposed to be friends. Let me ask you guys this though: Do you really believe that you should still be able to talk to other people if you’re starting over in a marriage? Do you think that’s healthy??”
Cole went on to say that it was okay for Gibson to date other women after they initially split, but when he made it seem as though he wanted to get back together, he should have known better than to try to flirt and court other people while trying to win her back.
“There were things that he dealt with before that I was like, you shouldn’t just cut people off. It’s unfair to people. Unfortunately, what we went through, you should speak to them young ladies or whoever they are about whatever we’re doing. Be honest with people. But it’s not right if you’re trying to be like, ‘Oh yeah, let’s go. I need to be with you.’ I don’t think that’s healthy. But I don’t know. Maybe I could be living in a crazy world.”
When asked whether or not there was a chance they could still work things out, Cole made it clear that she’s put herself through enough pain and that they’re “100 percent” done.
“No, we’re not going to work it out.”
So instead of worrying about reuniting, Cole says their main focus needs to be on their son, Daniel, Jr.
“I spoke to Gib last night and he came by to see munchkin. That should be our focus. We should realize that the relationship is not going to work and it’s just not for us. We can move on from there. We have to get over this hump of not being together first. I think there will still be feelings and tension, but ultimately, the goal is to just focus on DJ and move on.”
