“Remember” from Keyshia Cole’s 2007 Just Like You album was everything. So I was pretty excited to learn that she released a part two for the heartfelt track. The release of the track appears to be perfectly timed, as she and her estranged husband, Daniel Gibson, have parted ways.
As previously reported, in the song Keyshia seems to be singing about relationship troubles and her decision to throw in the towel on her marriage.
“I just can’t take no more// It’s not meant to be…but before I leave I gotta tell you// And I know we got a lot of things on the line// Like I said, it don’t seem right// Things ain’t weighing out. // Things ain’t adding up, baby// I don’t know if I even miss you// Don’t wanna kiss you// How can you love somebody and everything just changes? // I don’t even know if you remember all the things that you told me.”
Speaking of their split, Keyshia recently addressed Boobie’s claims that he fell into a depression when she left him.
“We parent our child together, so I speak to Daniel all the time,” she said. “As far as his depression is concerned, I think as a friend, he has to understand as well that things that bring you to that point of being depressed, or losing something that matters to you more than anything, you can’t repeat the same thing that got you there in the first place. And so I think as a friend, that would be something that I would have to express to him. You gotta just grow up.”
Starring alongside Keyshia in the video is her 4-year-old son, Daniel Jr. There’s not a whole lot to the video, but it’s a little sad and the pain is quite evident.
Watch Keyshia’s video below. Thoughts?
If we are honest with ourselves, many of us have to admit that it is hard not to envy the life of the rich and famous. But don’t be too envious, because they are people just like the rest of us who also experience relationship drama from time to time. Take a look at the couples, past and present, who we think would be great on the next season of “Couples Therapy.” It most likely won’t happen, but hey, you never know. And even though some of these couples have already bitten the dust, it’s never too late to make things work!
Last month, we told you that Keyshia Cole was arrested after allegedly attacking a woman at Birdman’s home. As the story goes, Keyshia showed up at the Cash Money mogul’s penthouse and found the alleged victim Sabrina Mercadel there. According to reports, she began questioning Mercadel, who claims she does nothing but business with Birdman, about the nature of their relationship. An attack reportedly ensued and Cole was carted off to jail.
Following the alleged attack, Mercadel petitioned for a restraining order against Cole, which according to TMZ, a judge recently granted. Per the restraining order, the “She” singer is prohibited from coming within 100 yards of and making any contact with Mercadel.
Mercadel, who says that she has been friends with Birdman since they were young, accuses Cole of punching her in the face, scratching her with her fingernails and throwing objects at her. She says that in addition to injuring her neck and back during the brawl, her finger was injured so severely that she may never recover full use. Also, sources close to the situation have corroborated Mercadel’s story that she was simply “visiting a friend” the morning Keyshia discovered her in Birdman’s home and that there was nothing sexual going on.
So far there has been no mention of one yet, but we smell a lawsuit.
“You Gotta Just Grow Up”: Keyshia Cole Has Some Words For Estranged Husband Daniel After His Depression Reveal
Keyshia Cole’s personal life has been filled with some ups and quite a few downs as of late, including being arrested for fighting over Birdman and constantly having to answer questions about the state of her marriage to Daniel “Boobie” Gibson. Recently, while promoting her new album The Point of No Return on “106 & Park,” Cole was again asked to confront the rumors and questions about her love life. And she did, in her own way. Check out what she had to say about Gibson claiming he dealt with depression after she left him, and what she had to say to fans about her recent arrest.
On Daniel Saying He Went Through Depression Because Of Her:
“[Laughs] Well, we parent our child together, so I speak to Daniel all the time. As far as his depression is concerned, I think as a friend, he has to understand as well that things that bring you to that point of being depressed, or losing something that matters to you more than anything, you can’t repeat the same thing that got you there in the first place. And so I think as a friend, that would be something that I would have to express to him. You gotta just grow up.”
If She Wants To Speak On Getting Arrested For Fighting Over Birdman:
“Oooh girl, we getting into something now. Girl…get me all uncomfortable and everything…No thank you. I appreciate that though. I appreciate that because my fans do mean a lot to me and I really do appreciate my fans rolling with me over the last 10 years and being in reality television. But I’ve learned that some things you have to keep to yourself.”
And yet, Cole just put either Gibson or Birdman on blast this week for trying to win back her love with money. So much for keeping things to yourself.
Check out her conversation with Keshia Chanté below and let us know what you think about her responses.
Keyshia Cole has been going through it in the past year or so. Her marriage is ending, rather publicly, though neither of them have filed for divorce, and then most recently she got into a fight with another woman over Birdman. Poor Keyshia. It’s always something.
But by the looks of her Instagram, Keyshia might have had enough of the shenanigans from the men with whom she’s been romantically linked.
A few days ago, she posted this wad of cash on her Instagram page. As these things usually go, it was the caption that told the deeper story.
Cash gifts are always nice. Don’t change shit tho! This @daniel_gibsonjr money tho. I don’t need it. Just put it up for him.
Naturally, the picture and caption are leading folks to think that the money came from Birdman…or Booby, her ex husband. But considering Booby last played for Cleveland in 2013 before getting injured, it’s more likely the cash came from Birdman.
People think money goes farther than it actually does. While Keyshia accepted it, she made it clear it doesn’t mean anything.
And then after the picture of the money, she posted this quote:
“And a mistake repeated more than once is a decision.”
This quote is making me think that it could have been directed toward Booby though. How many times has Birdman messed up? Either way, it’s just entirely too much mess.
Raven-Symone just ruffled a lot of feathers after revealing to Oprah that she doesn’t consider herself gay or Black. But Raven isn’t the only celebrity who doesn’t want to be labeled as African-American. Prepare to be surprised by the celebrities who don’t think they belong on the Black list.
When The Face model Devyn Adbullah told Wendy Williams, “I don’t really consider myself as a black girl model. I know what my ethnicity is, but I’m fair-skinned and I feel like I have an international look” she not only took the audience by surprise but her mentor Naomi Campbell was shocked as well. She famously quipped, “What the f*ck does she mean? That’s a disgrace! She’s a Black girl.”
Daniel Gibson is still speaking about his split from estranged wife, Keyshia Cole. This time, he’s revealing that he fell into a depression after the “I Changed My Mind” singer left him.
“I’ve learned through the depression I went through after losing Keyshia and I felt like [I lost] my son too in the sense that I couldn’t be with him every day,” he told Necole Bitchie. “That whole thing took me into a deep depression. And in that depression I kind of found out a lot of things about myself.
[Depression] is definitely something I sympathize with. Anybody now, knowing where I came from and where I was, anybody I hear that is possibly dealing with something- I feel inclined to speak to them and tell them that in time – because it does take time – things will get better in the right place.”
As for how he was able to escape depression, Daniel says the couple’s son, Daniel Jr., had a lot to do with it.
“I would say without a shadow of a doubt, my guiding light was my son. You know, I was always trying to feel sorry for myself or whatever the case may be. It wasn’t [just] me and Keyshia’s relationship. I come from a poverty-stricken – you know, my family- grew up in a very tough situation. And some of my people are still going through the same thing. And I lost a lot of family members around the same time. So I got hit with a lot at once.
So [Daniel Jr.] was definitely my guiding light through it all but it was also faith. And like I mentioned earlier, a lot of my poetry healed me too. It gave me somewhere to vent, somewhere to talk. And somewhere to actually get it out… it kind of low key saved me.”
The former Cleveland Cavaliers star also says that he has been trying to turn over a new leaf.
“I kind of fasted from everything bad and negative in my life. Like no drinking. No sex. No fast foods. I pretty much just fast[ed] from all of those things. I kind of got into a lot of this stuff and being able to be open and transparent with a lot of the mistakes that I made in my life and in my relationship.”
Daniel adds that he’s open to being married again.
“Yeah. That’s me! I’m the type that wants a family. I want to have kids. Picket fence. All that. That’s me. So yeah, definitely, I want to have somebody that I can share life with. I feel like, that’s the highest level of happiness to me. When you’ve got somebody that’s riding with you and y’all can start your little family and stuff. That’s joy, that’s the pinnacle of happiness when you can make your accomplishments with somebody to share.”
And this time around, Daniel says that he’ll be both faithful and loyal to his future wife.
“Well for one, there will never be- ever be- any disloyalty. This will be my queen. This will be it for me. I wish I had this mind frame before but like I said, [dudes] go through what they go through to understand what it is they need to understand. There will be no disloyalty. There will be friendship.”

“I Just Can’t Take No More”: Keyshia Cole Sings About Her Marriage Falling Apart In “Remember (Part 2)”
Keyshia Cole has always been an open book when it comes to sharing details on the ups and downs of her personal life. She’s literally been singing about love gone wrong since her first album, The Way It Is, and dealt with family drama front and center on reality TV. But for a time it seemed like she had found her happily ever after when she married NBA player Daniel “Boobie” Gibson. Unfortunately, that relationship is not working out (she claims he cheated, he unconvincingly says he didn’t) and Cole has moved on rather quickly, allegedly rebounding with (and fighting over) Bryan “Birdman” Williams. But on her upcoming sixth studio album, Point of No Return, Cole has a song called “Remember (Part 2)” that speaks on the pain she feels over the state of her marriage. In the song she talks about her family trying to encourage her to make things work with Gibson, and why Cole decided to move on, wondering if her man even remembered all the things he promised her when things were good between them.
I just can’t take no more
It’s not meant to be…but before I leave I gotta tell you
And I know we got a lot of things on the line
Like I said, it don’t seem right
Things ain’t weighing out.
Things ain’t adding up, baby
I don’t know if I even miss you
Don’t wanna kiss you
How can you love somebody and everything just changes?
I don’t even know if you remember all the things that you told me.
We were hoping Cole and Gibson would be able to work things out, but it looks like she’s already out the door…
Definitely a sad song, and the use of a choir in the background really helps to drive the heartbreak home. Check out the song for yourself below and be sure to pick up Cole’s new album, Point of No Return, on October 7.
Woman Attacked By Keyshia Cole At Birdman’s Home Says Assault Was Unwarranted, Cole Says “You Can’t Force Loyalty”
We told you last week that Keyshia Cole was in police custody early Friday morning for fighting a woman inside of the home of Cash Money Records Co-Founder, Bryan “Birdman” Williams. TMZ reported that Cole has been involved with Birdman on the low-low, and that when she arrived at his LA penthouse early Friday morning, she wound up attacking the woman and leaving marks and scratches all over her face. Cole had to fork over $46,000 to get out of jail and once she got out, the singer attended the BET Hip Hop Awards later in the weekend.
Well, according to TMZ, the victim of the assault is a woman named Sabrina Mercadel, and she reportedly works for Birdman through Cash Money and has been for more than 10 years. According to sources close to her, Mercadel says she is not romantically involved with Birdman, so she doesn’t understand why Cole attacked her. Mercadel says that she has known the entrepreneur and rapper since they were young, but is not doing anything with him other than business.
Sources say that Mercadel wasn’t even alone with Birdman when Cole arrived at his penthouse at 5 a.m.–there were four other people there. They say that Cole came in the home and questioned Mercadel about the extent of her relationship with Birdman once the employee was spotted walking out of his bathroom.
Mercadel is currently resting at home taking pain medication for her injuries, while Cole is out of police custody posting stuff like this on Instagram:
And according to Necole Bitchie, Cole posted this message before deleting it:
“And finally you realize…you cant force it to be something. You can’t force consistency, loyalty or even honesty… You can’t force them to keep their word or to communicate, or to realize something special is in front of them.”
What a mess Cole has found herself in…
Daniel Gibson Says Media Played A Role In Failed Marriage: ‘I Would’ve Been Willing To Work Through Whatever The Problem Was’
Though neither of them have filed for divorce as of yet, it’s safe to say that Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibson’s relationship is a thing of the past. While there are many factors that can contribute to the demise of a relationship (especially those in the public eye), judging by previous comments made by Keyshia, infidelity appears to be the primary reason why these two were unable to stay together. However, according to Daniel, the media also contributed to the falling apart of their union.
“It’s a tough situation. If you’re going to be in a situation like that [a public relationship], you have to be ready and willing to deal with whatever comes with it,” the former Cleveland Cavaliers player recently told Vlad TV. “I feel like…in the media…it’s more publicized and glorified, the bad things that happen in a relationship. If something bad happens in anybody’s relationship and you’re in front of the public eye, it’s going to get blew way out of proportion. So if in your situation, you two are not just tied together like best friends, with the social media and everything these days, your problem can start going too far to the point where you can’t catch it.”
Daniel went on to say that social media gives the everyday person the ability to reach celebrities and public figures, which means you’re constantly subjected to countless individuals weighing in on personal matters.
“You’re going to start hearing what everybody else has to say because now everyone is so accessible due to social media. You never know what’s true and not true and these days, people tend to believe anything they’re told and anything that’s printed.”
An example of this, adds Daniel, is when he was photographed with a popular exotic dancer from Houston. The photograph resulted in rumors that he was in a relationship and cheating on Keyshia with this woman. He, of course, denies the allegations.
“The girl is actually from where I’m from. The strip club is one of the one’s in the hood that people go to comfortably. And yeah, I snapped a flick and everybody is like, ‘Oh, he’s in a relationship with a stripper,’ or ‘He’s spending money with a stripper.’ It becomes the truth no matter what you say or what you do about it because people are so influenced by the media these days that everything sticks. You gotta have tough skin. If you’re in a relationship, like I said, it becomes a war.”
Although the soon-to-be-divorced pro-baller believes that the media did more harm than good to his marriage to Keyshia, Daniel candidly confessed that he’s not sure if their union would’ve survived—even without that element.
“I can’t speak on it and say we would [still] be together because I don’t know if we were meant to be together,” he expressed. “But, what I will say is yeah, if you don’t have so many people pulling on you and telling you this and telling you that, if you do have a problem, you’re able to come to it with each other, talk about it and figure it out. But once all of those outside forces come in, if you ain’t just locked in, that thing will break.”
As for why he refuses to be the one to file for divorce, Daniel had this to say:
“I would’ve been willing to work through whatever the problem was because I’ve always felt like that’s how it was supposed to go. You’re supposed to grow with somebody and go through whatever problems y’all got and come up out of them.”
Before concluding his interview, Daniel expressed that he is working hard to, at the very least, build a friendship with Keyshia to make co-parenting their son, Daniel Jr., as seamless as possible.
