Since September, we’ve been discussing the criminal complaint filed against Keyshia Cole by Sabrina Mercadel, a Los Angeles woman who claims that she was attacked by the singer. As you may recall, Mercadel claims that Cole flew into a jealous rage after she discovered her in Birdman’s apartment during the wee hours of the morning.
“Who the f*** are you? What are you doin’ with my man?” Mercadel alleges Keyshia screamed before the attack.
Last month, a judge granted Mercadel’s request for a restraining order against Cole and now, according to TMZ, she is suing the “Just Like You” singer over the alleged attack. In her lawsuit, the alleged victim claims that Keyshia accused her of sleeping with Birdman, although their relationship is strictly platonic. According to her version of events, the troubled star assumed that she was a prostitute and slapped her on the butt saying, “You can get your money later.”
Reportedly, Mercadel is being represented by the Cochran Firm.

We told you yesterday that Keyshia Cole was videotaped dry-humping the top of a piano like she was in heat. She then posted it to Instagram and tagged Birdman in it. Feeling some type of way about the reception the thirst-heavy clips received, Cole deleted them and hoped that it would be the end of discussion. Too bad for her, Baller Alert was able to get their hands on the clips before she took them down.
We see you #KeyshiaCole! #Birdman #pressplay #IGAfterDark A video posted by Baller Alert (@balleralert) on
People had quite a bit to say about the videos, and I guess Cole was sick of it, so she posted this message on her Instagram last night:
Yes, it’s golden feces. She captioned the image, “Some people act like they _ don’t stink tho. GTFomf”
“GTFomf,” in case you were wondering, stands for “get the f**k out of my face.”
While I’m sure Cole doesn’t want people in her business, she needs to do a better job of keeping said business private. Posting videos she should have found a way to share only with Birdman, and physically fighting over him to the point that she was arrested for it is not a good look. Especially since she was just telling people that estranged husband Daniel is the one who needs to “grow up.” Just saying…
If you and I are honest with ourselves, we’ve all had moments that were less than sane. But if we’re lucky, reason, a good girlfriend or the Holy Spirit intervened before we ended up making a complete and utter fool of ourselves.
Sadly, Keyshia Cole had one of those moments and no one was there to stop her.
So what did she do this time?
Well, you know when your man, past or present, is not giving you the attention you deserve and you think about doing a little something to show him what he’s been missing? That’s what Keyshia did.
The R&B singer uploaded a couple videos of herself writhing and then air humping a piano. That alone would have been weird enough but she took it a step further by at mentioning Birdman.
And while she deleted the videos shortly after they were posted, it didn’t stop Baller Alert from grabbing them for plenty more to see.
Take a look at the three of them below.
After watching these videos, I have a few of observations.
1. Judging by that awkward whine, Keyshia might have been under the influence of something which impaired her judgement.
2. The men bobbing behind her do not love her.
3. Perhaps she was set up. Maybe the person recording the video did this completely out of spite. Notice how that person lingered on that picture of Keyshia on the wall so we all knew who was on that piano flinging her braids around? I just find it hard to believe that Keyshia looked at those 15 second clips and thought, “Yes, that’ll get him.”
Shame it had to go down like this.
What do you think of Keyshia’s videos?
Last month, Keyshia Cole made headlines after she was arrested for allegedly attacking a woman. According to the victim’s account of the incident, she is simply an employee of Birdman’s Cash Money Records and happened to be at his home that evening discussing business. Sabrina Mercadel, who insists that her relationship with Birdman is strictly platonic, says that they have known one another for over 10 years and is completely clueless as to why Keyshia attacked her.
Although Sabrina says that she sustained some pretty troubling injuries during the attack and was granted a restraining order against the “She” singer, law enforcement sources are saying that Keyshia won’t be prosecuted over the brawl. According to TMZ, prosecutors have decided that instead of making Keyshia go to trial, a hearing will be conducted by someone from the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office. Both Keyshia and Sabrina will be able to share their sides of the story and Keyshia will reportedly be given a “harsh warning” to keep her hands to herself in the future.
The hearing officer also has the option to require Keyshia to attend anger management classes, which probably wouldn’t hurt. Hopefully Keyshia has learned her lesson; she has a child to think about.
“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.”
