Keyshia Cole and hubby Daniel “Boobie” Gibson just cannot seem to figure out what do with their marriage. With rumors of Boobie’s infidelity always sky high, it looks like it’s the wife’s turn: Is Keyshia Cole cheating too?
On Friday night, Drake threw an after party to celebrate his big concert in the city. Keyshia was there and she looked pretty comfortable with Atlanta party promoter, Mr. Rugs. Of course, it could be “nothing,” but then again, married people don’t just allow people of the opposite sex that far into their space, do they? She even seems to be hiding her ring finger (which she does quite often lately in party photos).
If you’ve heard anything about the Gibson marriage lately, you’re well aware that they take their anger out on each other via social media. Boobie has taken to posting pictures that express how angry he’s been over whatever is going on in his life. Keyshia, on the other hand, has been ignoring most things – including the talk about these latest pictures.
So, is it really over for the Gibsons? Is Keyshia Cole cheating or are they separated at this point? Who knows but at the very least, hopefully they can figure out some peaceful ground so they can co-parent and raise their son. Only time will tell.

Despite the incessant rumors of marital trouble surrounding Keyshia Cole and her husband Boobie, the Oakland singer is thinking about making a major family change. According to Keyshia’s Instagram musings, she’s surprisingly contemplating expanding her family by way of adoption. She wrote a few days ago:
Many may forget that Keyshia was adopted. After being born to the mother we’ve all grown to know, Frankie, real name Francine Lons, and her now-deceased father Sal, Keyshia was adopted at age two by family friends Leon and Yvonne Cole, who changed her last name to theirs. Given that upbrining, it makes total sense Keyshia would want to adopt, and we all would love to see more African American children brought into stable African American homes, but therein lies some of the confusion with Keyshia’s statement.
Knowing the marital issues she’s working through, it is odd that Keyshia doesn’t mention her husband at all in this post, only her adopted mother. But perhaps in mentioning Mama Cole, she means her adopted mother will help her through the adoption process, not to raise the child, which is one way this message could be (mis)interpreted. Also, to say you’re contemplating adoption in the same breath as you say you have too much work to do to have a child is a bit contradictory. Sure, you won’t have to physically carry the adopted child, but the work required to raise him or her will be no less than a child she’d give birth to, if not more. I’m thinking Keyshia might want to give this decision a little more thought and make sure her home is right before going any further, but this is none of my business…

Keyshia Cole Speaks On Her Marriage, Making Nice With Michelle Williams And Working With K. Michelle
While taking part in the WBLS Circle of Sisters R&B Concert, Keyshia Cole spoke with True Exclusives about all the rumors about her marriage, if she’s finally getting along with Michelle Williams (formerly of Destiny’s Child), and if she would ever work with K. Michelle in the future, aka, her twin. She definitely had some interesting responses, especially when speaking on her marriage–which she didn’t seem too enthusiastic about.
On Michelle Williams:
“You know, she said something to me while I was on stage. It’s fine. Me and Michelle spoke about it and she erased the tweet. She apologized for saying it because she said somebody else had tweeted about it but she wasn’t watching or something like that. So, I mean, you know, it’s cool. It’s over with. We’ve moved on.”
As For Her Marriage To Daniel “Boobie” Gibson:
“You know, we’re good, man. We’re chillin’. We have a kid. We’re married, so you know…it’s all love.”
If She’ll Do Reality TV Again:
“It depends. I want it too but we have to make sure that it’s done correctly, and not only correctly, but we have to make sure that we get paid. So it’s just very minor details.”
Things That Annoy Her The Most:
“Fake people, and I guess liars would be the same thing, but whatever.”
The Two Albums She Would Take If She Was Stranded On An Island:
“Faithfully by Faith Evans” and also probably Share My World by Mary J. Blige.”
If A Collaboration With K. Michelle Is Happening In The Future:
“It may! Yeah, I would love to, yeah, of course.”
For that question on reality TV, if you’ll recall, Cole openly dissed BET for not providing her with her check for doing the reality show, Keyshia & Daniel: Family First. So I’m not mad at her for not wanting to mess with anymore reality TV mess. But check out her body language and responses to these questions below from her interview and tell us what you think!
Thanks to social media, most of us were aware that R&B singer Keyshia Cole and her NBA-playing hubby, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, were experiencing marital trouble, but I don’t think any of us realized just how serious their problems were. If you recall, last month Daniel took to his Twitter account to deny rumors that he’d been stepping out on Keyshia and revealed that the two haven’t been seeing eye-to-eye lately.
“I would never cheat on my wife,” Daniel tweeted. We not getting along right now true. But dont spread that type of negativity. The World don’t need that sh**!” he continued.
While the specific cause of the marital drama between the Gibsons is still unclear, it doesn’t seem like things are getting any better. About a week ago, Keyshia posted a photo to herself Instagram getting some tattoo work done. While the image didn’t exactly reveal what kind design the tattoo artist was creating, it appears that the work was ironically being done on the same shoulder that bore a dedication tattoo for her husband, which reads:
“Truly Blessed D.Gibson”
A couple of days later, Keyshia posted a photo of herself and it appears that a butterfly tattoo has replaced her husband’s name. Fans quickly took notice, with one fan even saying, “O chit Keysh..u received a cover up tat..uh oh @danielgibson..”
They seemed so happy together. Hopefully they’re able to iron out their differences.
Getting married and having the big ceremony is easy–especially when you can afford to do it. But keeping that marriage afloat, that’s a whole other story.
I used to be a big fan of Keyshia Cole’s music. Her first two albums, The Way It Is, and Just Like You, were two of my favorites in the post-breakup, I-just-want-to-cry-and-sing playlist of my college years. She shared her pain from tumultuous relationships with her fans, and showed that she could truly relate to the average woman’s experiences with love (and say the things many of us want to but don’t). She was almost like a Mary J. Blige for a new generation of young women–just a little more ratch. Cole became even more easy to relate to when her reality show Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is debuted, and we had to bear witness to the struggle she was going through to rebuild her relationship with her mother Frankie, and keep her family together. Sista girl had definitely been through the fire in life.
So when she found love, had a baby, and wed Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, I was genuinely happy for her. She was someone who had been similarly unlucky in love and finally had her own picture-perfect family after not being able to have that as a child and young woman. Gibson seemed to have her back for most things, including when people tried to disrespect his lady (he was arrested for getting into a scuffle with a disrespectful oaf), and even when she wasn’t behaving the best on social media (you know what I’m referring to). The couple even had their own reality show together for BET. They seemed like a good match.
Fast forward to this summer. Gibson has become a free agent after struggling at Cleveland (as a Cavalier) with injury after injury and putting up the worst numbers of his career. He, along with his wife, have sent out continuous back and forth shots towards one another on social media, and just last month, Gibson confessed to MediaTakeOut of all people that they were going through a rough patch.
“…I WOULD NEVER CHEAT on my wife. We not getting along right now, true, but dont spread that type of negativity.”
Since then, things have been pretty quiet between the two on social media. No lovey dovey messages, no Instagram pics of the two like they’re used to. But on Saturday, Cole definitely made a major statement about where they stand when she stepped out with friends in Atlanta to help Jeezy (also known as Young Jeezy) celebrate his birthday. That statement was, “I’m pissed off, and I’m about to start doing me.” If you’ll recall, Jeezy and Cole were an item around the beginning of her career, and there was even talk of marriage–who proposed to who is still up in the air though. The two fell out after she revealed that he had proposed to her and he later turned around and said SHE was the one who bought him a ring and proposed. Yet and still, they seem to be back on good terms (for some reason), and she showed up looking cute for his birthday party at Compound–without her wedding ring on.
While the two weren’t seen getting too close, cuddled up, or creating controversy, there’s something about this scenario that’s a no-no. People do stuff like this in dating relationships sometimes. Feeling hurt or neglected by your partner? Call up an “old friend” to talk. Call up an “old friend” to meet up for drinks. Call up an “old friend” and maybe fool around. I’m just saying, it always starts out innocent and then goes left. I doubt that anyone’s husband would be excited about their wife trying to get friendly again with someone they considered walking down the aisle with at one time.
It would be in the best interest of Cole and her husband to hunker down, stay out of sight (and off-line), and work whatever is going on out. They have a son, and for the most part, they seem to have a lot of love for each other. The last thing folks need to be doing when they’re trying to work things out is start stepping out to run into someone from their past. Call me crazy, but when you’re married, an ex is best kept an ex and best left in your past.
So what do you think? Is it right or wrong to have contact (of any kind) with an ex when you’re married?
Tis’ the season for family reunions? Just yesterday we told you that R&B crooner Tank confirmed his romantic reunion with his daughter’s mother, Zena Foster. It appears that singer and reality star Keyshia Cole has followed suit. After fighting for what feels like forever, Keyshia and her sister, Neffeteria Pugh, have kissed and made up. We can’t say for sure what happened behind the scenes to prompt the reunion, but we do know that Neffe showed up to support her little sister at an in-store event for her shoe collection with Steve Madden.
Rob Thatcher took to Instagram with a photo of the lovely ladies posing side-by-side, wearing identical shoes from Keyshia’s collection.
“This moment made my day!! @IAmNeffeteria & @KeyshiaCole#SistersForever#TogetherAgain#stevemaddencollection Neffe came to support & congratulate her sister & bought a pair of these bangin shoes!!! #GoKeyshia,” he wrote beneath the photo.
Neffe also took to social media to gush about reuniting with her sister.
Sometimes a musician will strike gold with a song but more often than not, the song will fall quickly out of the minds of fans and radio stations. These singers thought they were releasing a hit but then the track failed to keep them in the spotlight. Let’s take a look at some of the most recent musical flops
We told you yesterday about Michelle Williams saying that she wouldn’t mind meeting up with Keyshia Cole to sit down and discuss why Cole took to Twitter at the beginning of the year to say the Destiny’s Child member was always “f**kin’ the groove up” during Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show. Williams seemed very upbeat and positive about the whole thing all these months later, telling Philly’s Hot 107.9, “I can’t wait to see [Keyshia Cole] in person so we can talk and say ‘Hey, what happened?’”
Word got out to Cole, and one individual even tweeted to the singer saying, “Michelle Williams had nothing but good things to say about @KeyshiaCole. How classy.” Cole even responded saying, “Thats nice. its all G.” And while she claimed it was “all G,” minutes later she somewhat changed her tone when she Tweeted about folks acting holier than though:
What the singer is referring to as far as “people say things” is her past claims that Michelle Williams tweeted something negative about Cole’s performance at the Soul Train Awards when she honored Ronald Isley in 2010. Cole, after receiving major criticism for her comments about Williams, and having the Destiny’s Child member say she didn’t care what Cole thought about her performance, brought up the shade Williams allegedly threw to justify her statement:
“Gonna say this again! Michell spoke on me first. So it was open season to state my feelings on her. I always felt that about her. Just never said it. Until she spoke on me.”
“Sounds about right! Cause I didn’t give a shyt what she thought about my soul train performance when she spoke her shyt RT @UrbanBelleMag: Michelle Williams says she doesn’t care what Keyshia Cole thinks about her SB performance: “
Time has passed, and seeing that Williams is looking to squash whatever issues they might have, it would be nice if they could actually do it. But you never know with Keysh…
Remember that time when Destiny’s Child reunited on the Super Bowl stage for an epic performance and Keyshia Cole put a damper on it all by saying mean things like, Michelle Williams is always “f***ckin’ the groove up?” Well, Michelle is finally ready to talk about what happened; not with us (although we’d totally love that), but with Keyshia, surprisingly. If you recall, Michelle has yet to directly address the comments that Keyshia made about her, but during a recent interview with Philly’s Hot 107.9, the “If We Had Your Eyes” singer revealed that she wants to have a face-to-face chat with the troubled Keyshia.
“I don’t even do Twitter beef.”
“I can’t wait to see [Keyshia Cole] in person so we can talk and say ‘Hey, what happened?’” Michelle told PMS Morning Show hosts.
She also admitted that she’s a big fan of Keyshia’s.
“I will say this, I was a major fan of hers. That’s my first time even saying that.”
“I understood her story and was rooting for her. I have a little sister that’s adopted. My little sister’s mother was a crack addict. My little sister was born with crack coke in her system, so when I see someone like Keyshia Cole, who is defying the odds, doing her thing and taking care of her family…. She was somebody I was rooting for, because I could understand where she was coming from .”
As for Keyshia’s not-so-nice comment, Michelle says she isn’t holding a grudge.
“It’s all good, people make mistakes, I don’t hold that against nobody, I wish everybody the best. I want everybody to win! People say the wrong things in the heat of the moment, maybe she didn’t mean it. I don’t care. I love you.”
She’s such a class act.
Listen to Michelle’s interview here. Do you think Keyshia would agree to sit down with her?
If we know nothing else about Keyshia Cole, we know that she’s outspoken, bold and doesn’t mind calling people out on Twitter. Her latest target has been BET. You see, according to Keyshia, the network has yet to compensate she and her NBA-playing hubby Daniel for their reality show, Keyshia & Daniel: Family First, which aired last October! The season finale aired in December of 2012 and Keyshia says they have yet to cut her a check.
You’re probably wondering why she’s just now speaking out about it and on Twitter no less. But, it all started when a fan asked her if the show would be returning for a second season. Keyshia surprisingly shared that she was never paid for the first one.
Back in the October 2012 issue of Essence, Keyshia revealed that she and Daniel put up $150,000 of their own money to film the show themselves and then they shopped it around.
“We put up about $150,000 of our own money and shot it ourselves,” she told Kelley L. Carter. “I felt like the last show ended on a bad note and I feel like where Frankie and Neffe took their reality show was totally not what I wanted. It was so horrible. It broke a lot of things up in the family. So my husband and I decided to do our own show. We’re hoping to show our empire in a positive light,” she continued.
I guess that means there won’t be a season two.
