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 Sings About Marriage Troubles

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”

woman attacked by Keyshia Cole


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:


“Man love is a muthaF**ka.”

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.

Uh Oh: Keyshia Cole Arrested For Assault On Woman At Birdman’s Penthouse

Keyshia Cole might have made nice with her estranged family members, but she reportedly wasn’t so nice to a young woman she found in Birdman’s penthouse. I’m sure you’re wondering why she would care about who’s in Birdman’s home…

According to TMZ, Cole spent Friday morning behind bars for this:

They claim the singer popped up at Birdman’s home in Los Angeles in the wee hours of the morning to see the rapper, producer and Cash Money CEO. Their sources claim that the two are (or were) dating, and when the singer arrived and was able to gain access to his penthouse, there was another woman there.

It’s unclear what happened from there, but she wound up putting her hands on the woman and left scratches on her face. The police were called and Cole was arrested for battery and an outstanding reckless driving warrant but was released on $46,000 bail.

That’s a hefty bail for some foolishness…

No comment from her reps as of yet, but she did put up two cryptic messages on Instagram two hours ago:

I personally don’t believe that Cole and Birdman were dating (but hey, people do rebound with the darndest folks), so I’m thinking that maybe she was hanging out with him and a few others and things got out of control. Whatever the deal is, as a mom, getting arrested for fighting is a big no no. C’mon, Keysh.

“It’s Complicated”: Keyshia Cole Patches Things Up With Her Family–Well, Most Of Them

September 19th, 2014 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

Has Keyshia Cole finally been able to work things out with the family members she’s been estranged from for quite some time?

According to the singer, “it’s complicated,” but it sure looks like they’re trying to work on their issues and are taking things one day at a time.

The “No Love” singer posted a few images on her Instagram this week with her mother, Frankie Lons, brother Sam and sister Elite. In them, they all seemed chummy and happy, which is good considering the fact that earlier this year, there were reports that Cole was blocking her family’s attempt at a reality show of their own (“Family Therapy“), and Cole told the Breakfast Club that she wasn’t trying to have contact with them anymore, particularly her mother and sister, Neffe:

“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.”

When speaking on her mom in caption for one of her Instagram posts a couple days ago though, Cole said “When she’s not acting crazy, shes the Coolest!!!  #Cool but still #Momtho”

But we did notice that Cole didn’t snap a picture with her sister Neffe, who was present at whatever family gathering this was (see below). Siblings Robert and Latifia were not present.

According to NecoleBitchie, Cole’s family will appear on her new BET reality show. We don’t expect Cole to pretend like her family is like the Huxtables after all that they’ve been through with one another, but we’re glad to see they’re trying to patch things up! Besides, she could use their support with all that she’s going through with estranged husband, Daniel Gibson.

Check out more pictures of the happier clan below, and a hilarious video of Frankie singing her own rendition of Deborah Cox’s “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here” alongside Cole.

Welcome (Back) To BET: Keyshia Cole To Star In Reality Show About Her Current Struggles; Nelly & Shantel Jackson Taking Their “Love” To TV

BET Reality shows


After falling out with her family post-“Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is,” and being estranged from husband Daniel “Boobie” Gibson after they starred in “Keyshia & Daniel: Family First,” you would think that at this point in Keyshia Cole’s life, she would avoid reality TV like the plague. But those checks must be really nice, because Cole is returning to BET for her third reality show with the network, but this time, it’s going to be all about her.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cole’s show will follow her as she tries to juggle her career, motherhood and the way she deals with the demise of her relationship with Gibson. The show was picked up and will air six episodes running at a half hour.

This is all interesting considering that Cole put BET on blast not too long ago for failing to pay her for her work on “Family First.”

Screen shot 2013-08-01 at 1.59.07 PM

I guess they patched things up (and the check finally cleared). 

But she’s not the only one putting her business out there for BET. Nelly, who already stars on “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” will star in a new reality show for the network alongside girlfriend Shantel Jackson (yes, Floyd Mayweather’s ex). However, Nelly will be the main focus as cameras follow him, his business ventures, his children (as well as his late sister’s children, who he takes care of), his rap career, and of course, his relationship with “Miss Jackson.” The show was given the green light for eight episodes at an hour each. After years of trying to keep his personal life private (yes, I’m alluding to his past uber-long relationship with Ashanti that they tried to hide), he’s feeling very open these days…but will you watch? 

[Watch] Keyshia Cole Says She’s Through With Athletes

During her recent Breakfast Club interview, Keyshia Cole revealed that she is open to dating again, even though she’s not currently seeing anyone. But would she be open to dating another athlete? Unsurprisingly, the answer is no. TMZ recently caught up with the “She” singer and asked that very question.

“Would you ever want to date another athlete?” her interviewer questioned.

“No, no,” Keyshia responded.

“Is it difficult dating an athlete?” the cameraman asked.

“Very,” she said. “I don’t even want to meet any.”

I guess that’s not good news for any pro ballers who were looking to put their bids in now that Keyshia is officially done with Daniel. We can’t blame her for not wanting to go down that road again. In other Keyshia Cole news, the Oakland singer released the music video for her new single, “She,” yesterday and well, it’s quite interesting. Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Keyshia Cole Reacts To Boobie’s Claims That He Doesn’t Believe In Divorce Because He’s A Christian…

Folks love getting all spiritual after they have screwed up royally. Last week, we told you that Daniel “Boobie” Gibson claimed that he wouldn’t be filing for divorce from his estranged wife, Keyshia Cole, because he’s a Christian and doesn’t believe in it.

“She would have to do it,” he expressed. “I am a Christian. I believe in ’til death do us part.’”

Of course, it’s no secret that Daniel is a believer, but considering that he practically confessed to stepping out on his wife, the idea of him suddenly wanting to rest on biblical principles regarding marriage was slightly comical. This morning, during an interview with The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne informed Keyshia of Daniel’s comments and her reaction tickled me quite a bit.

“He did not say that,” Keyshia responded before laughing. “He did not say that!”

After getting her giggles out, Keyshia seriously responded to his comment.

“It’s a lot of things you should think about before—if you really feel like that in your heart and your soul as a person, as a man, as a father. I know people make mistakes, but you know, you gotta think about those kind of things because ultimately, it’s not worth it. [You gotta learn from your mistakes] at least. How about we do that? Let’s start there. Just let it go and know what you have and let’s keep it moving.”

Keyshia also responded to Boobie publicly confessing that he “failed” her as a husband. Clearly, she ‘s had enough.

“It’s a lot of admitting and a lot of doing wrong. It just gets tired. [And he continues to do it].”

Things are so over between them that Keyshia said that while she hopes he has learned his lesson, she won’t be the one sticking around to find out.

“Recently I told him, ‘I hope you really find that woman and you be good to her.'”

She seems to be handling the split a lot better, which is great.

Daniel Gibson Refuses To Divorce Keyshia Cole: ‘I Am A Christian’

It appears that a divorce between Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibson is inevitable, but Daniel says that he has not officially filed yet. Interestingly, someone took it upon themselves to file for him, according to TMZ.

The unnamed person went down to the Los Angeles County Superior Court last week . In the documents, the person cited irreconcilable differences as a cause for the split; however a red flag went up when the person listed Gibson as his own attorney.

What’s even more bizarre is that the address provided in the filing is actually the address of an El Pollo Loco restaurant. TMZ reached out to Daniel about the bogus filing and he revealed that he hasn’t even considered filing for divorce from Keyshia.

“She would have to do it,” he expressed. “I am a Christian. I believe in ’til death do us part.'”

As for the creepy impostor, the ex-NBA star says he intends to press charges. Keyshia, on the other hand, says she’s still planning on going through with the divorce. We can’t figure out why someone would go to the lengths of filing for divorce on Daniel’s behalf just for the hell of it. People are always doing the absolute most.
