Stop The Shenanigans: Celebrities Who Let Drama Get In The Way Of Their Talent

The following people on this list all have music that I’ve bumped at one time or another. However, their music and their talents in general often take a backseat due to the drama they get caught up in. Whether they’re bickering with folks on social media or throwing ‘bows in public, these people are too talented to take part in all the shenanigans they enjoy entertaining.

Azealia Banks

Pretty girl. Vicious lyrical abilities. Penchant for drama.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it for the umpteenth time: Azealia Banks is a talented young MC. However, she makes it hard for those who have never heard her music to give her work a chance when she’s focused less on promoting that, and more on calling out everyone from Pharrell to Tiny and Rita Ora on social media.

Keyshia Cole To Officially File For Divorce In A Day Or So, Says Source

Keyshia Cole To Officially File For Divorce

It’s been apparent that things are over between Keyshia Cole hubby, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson for quite some time now. Yet, somewhere, deep down inside, we were kind of hoping that the love birds would search within and realize that there’s something left in their marriage worth fighting for. Unfortunately, that doesn’t appear to be the case. According to TMZ, Keyshia has plans to officially file for divorce from the Cleveland Cavaliers star as early as next week.

Earlier this month, Daniel opened up about the disintegration of his marriage to the “Enough Of No Love” singer.

“I think that life happened,” Daniel told Rolling Out. “In certain situations, you are a match made in heaven. But at the same time, nothing is perfect — and nobody is perfect. Then in some situations, you aren’t going to be as perfect as some people expect you to be. What happened with me and her was that our relationship was out there for everyone to see. So whenever we were going through our problems, it became public and everyone saw the ups and downs.

With us, I think it was just a matter of us growing apart over time. I can’t say that there was one thing that broke us up, but what I can say as a man; when you are in a relationship, and you say those vows, I take full responsibility for everything that didn’t go right.”

Keyshia’s reps have yet to comment on the rumors. We hate to see them throw in the towel, but maybe this is for the best.

“It’s Not Fair”: Keyshia Cole Reportedly Trying To Keep Frankie, Neffie And Estranged Siblings’ Reality Show Off TV

June 10th, 2014 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

Family Therapy

In an exclusive interview with Sister 2 Sister, a source close to Keyshia Cole’s mother and sister, Frankie Lons and Neffie (aka, Neffeteria) Pugh, says that Cole is making it difficult for the two, and her estranged siblings, to get their new reality show, Family Therapy, on television.

The show, which the source says will actually be called Frankie’s Family Therapy, had a teaser trailer that unexpectedly dropped last week. We shared this trailer with you. It showed that the program will follow Frankie, Neffie, sister Elite and Latifia, and brothers Sam and Rob, as they all reunite, live under the same roof, and go through both group counseling, and therapy by themselves. Doesn’t sound like a bad idea, but the images in the trailer included Frankie behaving quite over-the-top, one of the sisters kicking at a glass door during an argument (and the cops coming to break things up), and some very emotional moments. The public reaction to the trailer wasn’t good, and that’s probably because not only did it come off as too much for TV, but Cole’s name was also brought up, though she’s not attached to the show at all.

But the source that chatted with Sister 2 Sister claims that the family wasn’t expecting the trailer to come out so soon, and they didn’t OK having Cole’s name in it. The source wouldn’t specify to Sister 2 Sister how Cole is holding back the show being picked up by networks, aside from saying she’s vehemently opposed to the program, but they say that Family Therapy really doesn’t have anything to do with her, so she should let them continue on with it. The source also confirmed what Cole said months ago about interactions with her family, saying that she is no longer in contact with her mother, and has completely fallen out with her sister Neffe.

All in all, the source says that the family just wants to go through with the show, and they should be able to. “Keyshia brought them into this line of work. To now try to cut them entirely out…It’s not fair.”

“I Was Supposed To Hold Her Down And I Didn’t”: Daniel Gibson On Marriage To Keyshia And Why He Regrets Their Reality Show

Rolling Out

Back in March, Keyshia Cole went on The Breakfast Club to talk about her new song, “Rick James,” but spent most of the time talking about controversies surrounding her in the past and present, including the public drama she’s been dealing with in her marriage to NBA player, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson. When speaking on their issues and possible future, Cole had this to say:

“I don’t even really know what I wanna do right now. I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t really want to go into it…I’d just rather avoid questions like that for my son’s sake. We’ll know it as the time goes by whats going to happen. You know? This we’re talking about now involves a child…I want the situation to play out. I just want to protect my son. I’ll never be the kind of woman who–No matter how much I dislike this man, it will never be to the point where he can’t see his son. Period. “

Cole has said a lot, both in the media and on social media, but Gibson has remained relatively quiet about accusations of cheating and about her discontent with their relationship, aside from some subliminal postings on Instagram. But he decided to open up about their struggles and where he went wrong in their marriage in an interview with Rolling Out. It’s unclear if things can work out or if they’re already kaput, but Gibson had quite a bit to say:

What Went Wrong In Their Marriage:

“I think that life happened. In certain situations, you are a match made in heaven. But at the same time, nothing is perfect — and nobody is perfect. Then in some situations, you aren’t going to be as perfect as some people expect you to be. What happened with me and her was that our relationship was out there for everyone to see. So whenever we were going through our problems, it became public and everyone saw the ups and downs. With us, I think it was just a matter of us growing apart over time. I can’t say that there was one thing that broke us up, but what I can say as a man; when you are in a relationship, and you say those vows, I take full responsibility for everything that didn’t go right.”

Why He Takes Full Responsibility For Their Marital Issues And Cheating Rumors:

“I’m giving you the real answer because I feel like you’re never supposed to allow your marriage to fall apart. Whether it’s the blogs saying I cheated, or if I don’t like your attitude, at the end of the day, when you’re married to somebody, and you say “I do,” it says for better or for worse, and regardless of what comes in your relationship, you’re supposed to work through it. For example, even if you wanted to say that I cheated, you’re still supposed to figure out a way to make that work. So I’m not backing down from anything that people have to say about me, and I’m not taking the easy way out. But I am taking full responsibility for that not being my wife.”

If He Cheated:

“No.”

Why Keyshia Cole Tells People He Did, And Sings About It In Recent Songs:

“Well, let me put it like this. I won’t say that I didn’t cheat, but I will say that I cheated my wife out of a friend in a lot of situations where I was supposed to hold her down and I didn’t. I cheated my wife out of a lot of different things. I feel like when we got together, I thought I was a man, and I thought I had it all figured out but I didn’t. I think I was like 23 when we met, and so a lot of mistakes that you shouldn’t make as a man in a relationship with your wife, I made. So you can go down the line — I probably made every mistake. The difference between me then and me now is that back then, I probably would have tried to sit here and make an excuse like, “oh it was because of her attitude, and it made me go out and cheat on her.” No, that’s a sucker move — that’s for a coward to say. So I‘m sitting here telling you that regardless of what she did, I married her. I loved her. And none of that other stuff should have happened. We’re supposed to still be together doing it right.”

Why He Waited To Speak And Why He Regrets Doing Their Reality Show:

“Me being the way that I am, and the way that I was raised, I personally felt like love should be private, so I really didn’t want to agree to us doing the show at the beginning. Because I really felt like, when you open up that door, you allow people to be able to hate, or form whatever assumptions they want to about you because you’re putting your life out there. But I felt like it should be private. And, you know, she sings and she sings from that hurt place. I respect what she does, and she has to do that, but as far as I go, I couldn’t care less what somebody has to say about me as a man. The people that know me are the people that matter. And those people know what I’m about and what I stand for. So feel free to call me a stripper-chasing coward who let his family down. But those that know me know what I’m really about and that is never going to change.”

We would like to see these two work things out. Get some counseling. Stay offline. But only they know what’s next for their relationship. Check out Gibson’s full interview with Rolling Out where he talks more about those rumors that he cheated with a stripper, and check out his full photo shoot spread as well.

Not Again: Keyshia Cole’s Mom Frankie And Five Estranged Siblings Deal With Family Drama On New Reality Show, “Family Therapy”

Days like this, I feel bad for Keyshia Cole. If it wasn’t enough that she’s dealing with her marital issues in the public eye (her own doing though), her mother, Frankie, sisters Neffe and Elite, and her other estranged siblings are trying to get a check by airing out family drama for a possible new reality show.

Years after Frankie & Neffe was a hit on BET and created a major rift between Cole and her family, Frankie, Neffe, Elite, and siblings Robert, Latifia and Sam are taking part in a new show called Family Therapy. The pilot hasn’t been picked up by any networks as of yet, and it’s unclear if it will appear as a web series only, but the storyline is oh so messy. It seems that Frankie and her children, many of which she doesn’t have a good relationship with, will live under one roof as they deal with her issues with drugs, try to understand one another, and hopefully be able to come together as a family, all of this with the help of therapist, Susan Rosovsky. Of course, Cole is not involved in this reality show, but her name is mentioned at one point in the trailer for the show.

In a revealing interview with The Breakfast Club in March, Cole explained why she couldn’t associate with her mother and sister, Neffe, anymore:

“I mean, it’s just chaos and I don’t want that around him [son Daniel]. I have to protect him from that type of chaos. I haven’t even spoke to my mom, Frankie, in a minute. They don’t have my number. It’s just a respect thing for one. Last time I had my mom around I sent her through rehab and I tried to help her and I spent a lot of money…and she just took it way too far, yelling in my house. Luckily my child was asleep. After that I was like, ‘Naw.’ You gotta make an adult decision to move that out…”

And she wasn’t kidding about “chaos.” Check out the trailer for the pilot and let us know what you think.

We all have that one family member who will pop off at the drop of a dime and celebrities are no different. While these famous folks may know how to keep their composure, their wild siblings have no problem throwing down in a heartbeat.

Beyonce

All anyone has been talking about the past few days is surveillance cameras catching Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z while his wife and her sister Beyonce stood by and watched in an elevator following a Met Gala after party. While there’s no sound to support the video, it’s clear that Solange was none too happy with the rap mogul and let her feelings be known through slaps and kicks. Neither Jay Z, Solange nor Beyonce have released a statement about the incident.

Boobie Writes Beautiful Mother's Day Tribute To Keyshia Cole

After weeks worth of celebrity relationship drama, it’s nice to finally be able to report on a little bit of positivity. It’s no secret that Keyshia Cole and her (estranged?) husband Daniel Gibson, aka Boobie, have had their relationship  issues. Neither party has said anything concrete but the social media jabs and strange interviews, speak volumes. But that being said, the relationship drama doesn’t interfere with the love both Keyshia and Boobie have for their son.

This past Mother’s Day weekend, Boobie wrote a very moving tribute to Keyshia. Take a look at it, complete with this adorable picture of their son, Daniel Jr., below.

Very mature. And while it doesn’t seem like these two are necessarily headed to the courthouse to renew their vows, we’re happy to see this type of maturity. We root for black love around here and God knows Keyshia deserves to be happy. It would be awesome if these two could find a way to work some stuff out.

Would you like to see these two get back together?

Mariah Carey

While working on her eighth album in 1998, Mariah Carey decided to cover a song that was first recorded by Brenda K. Starr ten years earlier. Carey enlisted the help of Brett Ratner to direct the music video, which was inspired by Marilyn Monroe’s 1953 visit to the U.S. troops in Korea. In the video, Carey emulated Monroe’s hair and make-up while doing her own performance in front of airmen and soldiers at the Edwards Air Force Base in California.

Keyshia Cole Flips After Radio Host Asks If She’s ‘Wifey Material’

Keyshia Cole is infamous for flying off the handle. However, in the “Rick James” singer’s defense, it also seems that many times she is provoked. Take her recent interview with V103′s Ryan Cameron for instance. The soon-to-be divorced star called up the station to discuss her new single “Rick James” and naturally, the hosts also asked about her split from estranged husband, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson.

“Some things just don’t last forever,” Keyshia expressed. “We definitely are co-parenting right now. He’s a great father. You know, I wanna stress that issue. A lot of guys out there don’t care of their children after the relationship doesn’t work. He makes sure DJ is well taken care of, not just financially. We good, we working it out and we’re straight.”

The hosts then began to probe, insisting that she sounded like she was offering “politically  correct ” answers.

“It’s not an easy thing to deal with,” she added.

Keyshia appeared to be rolling with the punches and even responded to questions about whether or not she rushed into her marriage with Daniel. But she was clearly thrown off when Ryan’s co-host Wanda Smith asked if she felt that her occupation allowed her to be “wifey material” during her marriage.

“Do you feel like you were wifey material?” Wanda questioned.

“You know what? Y’all really f**kin’ with my sh** right now,” Keyshia responded. “I got some other sh** going on. What y’all wanna talk about? Tell me now.”

“You were so busy, you had your career popping off and you were doing your thing,” Wanda explained. “Then you had to phase out and start doing the wifey things, the cooking, taking care of the kids. Were you really ready for that or were you still trying to do your music thing?”

When Wanda compared Keyshia to Monica Brown and her decision to sort draw back from the music industry, to make her point more plain, Keyshia responded:

“So you trying to insinuate that I was one dimensioned?”

“Listen! Monica [Brown] I’m sure is doing her thing. This isn’t ain’t no first rodeo for Monica. She’s been through the ringer, this, that and the other. But at the end of the day, we can handle all that! It’s a point of a man taking care of his business. Straight up on that. We good! We handle our sh**. We do what we do! Period! I don’t know what to tell you about that.”

Keyshia managed to keep her composure for the remainder of the interview; however, once she had a moment to think things over, she quickly took to Twitter and blasted the station over it.

“I’m done wit interviews for a minute! That interview with V103 left a very bad taste. And to be honest, I don’t deserve that kinda treatment,” she tweeted.

“Y’all can kiss my a**! With that phony sh**.”

“Y’all should be ashamed of ya selves! Not cool. Never another interview from me!”

“Man. Y’all don’t even have to play my record. I’m cool wit that!”

“Man. It’s good tho. All love. God Bless. I’m gonna keep my head high and keep puttin one foot in front of the other! #BelieveTht Neva again tho.”

Divorce is obviously an extremely sensitive subject for a person who is going through it, so we understand why she wasn’t 100% comfortable with the questions being asked.

Listen to Keyshia’s  interview on the next page. Do you think she has a right to be upset or did she overreact?

“No Matter How Much I Dislike This Man, It Will Never Be To The Point Where He Can’t See His Son”: Keyshia Cole On Daniel Gibson

To promote her new song, “Rick James” (you read right), Keyshia Cole stopped by The Breakfast Club to give a very interesting interview about everything that has gone on with her marriage (she and her husband are on social media beefing terms), her issues with Michelle Williams and Beyoncé (including why she was so critical of “Bow Down”), her drama with her sister Neffie and her mom (they no longer speak), and more. Here’s what stood out:

Her Statements About Beyoncé:

“I was not hating on Beyoncé. No, it was not directed at all as hate. I’ve seen Beyonce a few times. She’s always a very sweet girl. To me, that just wasn’t her, her thing you know what I mean? But I don’t know. Like dude said, she switched it up or something. So, I don’t know, you know? But that’s just not what I know of her so it kinda hurt my feelings a little bit.”

Her Issues With Michelle Williams And Working Things Out:

“Well she stared that you know what I mean? She started that and it really hurt my feelings too because she’s Christian and she’s a church girl and all of this but yet we talk on the phone and you say you apologize for taking a Tweet down that you said about me in the first place. You know what I’m saying? And I mean, it just felt like everybody just jumped on me ‘cuz I’m from Oakland, I’m the ghetto chick and I’m always starting everything when in actuality I just say how I feel. You know what I’m saying and I don’t feel like I was starting nothing. But I was just getting her back for what she said to me. It was just like, I felt real like, everybody going in on me. You got ol boy, the Hamburgler up here talking about me. The-Dream [laughs]. You got Rico Love up here going in on me, but everybody was defending her. But in actuality she called me and apologized and said she never should have tweeted that or whatever. She called me and apologized and I said ‘Well next time you get a chance, address it, because you got people going in on me and that ain’t even the case.’ She said, I was at the Soul Train Awards and she was like, ‘I ain’t even know you could use Auto-tune at the Soul Train Awards, what’s that about?’ It’s cool. It’s over.

The State Of Her Marriage:

“I just, you know what I mean, I just wanna put my music out. And just, you know, sit in my own craziness. You know what I’m saying? And just chill out for a minute. Like, I don’t even really know what I wanna do right now. I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t really want go into it.”

Where They Are Now:

“We co-parent. He’s a great father though. Exactly, 8:30 come take DJ to school every morning and I pick him up.”

On Thinking Her Husband, An NBA Player, Wouldn’t Cheat:

“I did. I really did. I believed in that, you know what I mean? And on top of that, we just had so much of a great relationship. I felt like, I felt like it wouldn’t be possible.”

If They Can Work Things Out:

“I’d just rather avoid questions like that for my son’s sake. We’ll know it as the time goes by whats going to happen. You know? This we’re talking about now involves a child…I want the situation to play out. I just want to protect my son. I’ll never be the kind of woman who–No matter how much I dislike this man, it will never be to the point where he can’t see his son. Period.”

If She Can Work Out Issues With Neffie And Frankie:

“No. I mean, it’s just chaos and I don’t want that around him [son Daniel]. I have to protect him from that type of chaos. I haven’t even spoke to my mom, Frankie, in a minute. They don’t have my number. It’s just a respect thing for one. Last time I had my mom around I sent her through rehab and I tried to help her and I spent a lot of money…and she just took it way too far, yelling in my house. Luckily my child was asleep. After that I was like, ‘Naw.’ You gotta make an adult decision to move that out…I just need…not right now.”

Growing Up:

“I’ve grown a lot. I’m 30 years old. Ain’t the same way I used to do it. Take my anger out and just go ahead and approach you and do something about it.That ain’t the way I do it no more. You know? I’m a mother.You know what I mean? Whatever I do from here on out, I want my son to be proud of. Regardless of what it is.”

Putting All Her Business On Social Media:

“Well I have feelings, you know what I’m saying? I guess sometimes I have to put my phone down like ‘yo, I need to put my phone down because I’m about to go in.’ But I’m chillin’.”

She addressed quite a bit. Check out her full interview and Keyshia’s answer to the question of whether or not she’s really happy at the point and difficult time in her life.
