Keyshia Cole may be in a whole new relationship with boyfriend Niko Hale and have a three-month-old son named Tobias to show for it, but she’s still not legally divorced from husband Daniel “Boobie” Gibson. It’s unclear who is responsible for the hold-up, but the estranged couple have been ordered to court to either hurry up and end their marriage or pay up for wasting everybody’s time.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the two have been ordered to show up for a hearing on March 16, 2020. The documents note that “This is your FOURTH AND FINAL NOTICE.” Cole and Gibson have been instructed to appear in court or have to deal with a fine.
The divorce has been going on for two years (though they announced they initially split back in 2014), and at one point the estranged pair were warned that the divorce could be dismissed. But with no effort made to try and resolve the matter, they may have to fork over some cash.
It’s interesting that there has been no sense of urgency to end the marriage once and for all and move on. In June, Daniel reportedly handed over financial records that would help to close the matter, but with Cole delivering baby Tobias at the top of August, maybe she just was too busy preparing for that.
She did, however, say back in January that Gibson has been the one making the process more difficult by having requests in his documents that she would not agree to.
“Yes I would LOOOVE TO MOVE FORWARD With the divorce,” she said in a ShadeRoom comment. “His LAWYER needs to change his positioning in legal Documents. I AM NOT giving him full custody NOR no damn spousal support! And I’ve asked him over and over to do so, the [ball] In his court. No pun intended.”
The former NBA player said in May though that they were able to finally agree on things, it was just a matter of time before everything would be resolved.
“There were some things in there that wasn’t finalized, but we both have came to agreements on it as far as like, seeing DJ and making sure it’s split down the middle in terms of our time with him and where he stays weekly,” he told the Domenick Nati Show. “That’s pretty much it. So, it’s done, it’s just a matter of it being filed and presented to the court. We’ve all came to an agreement on what we want.”
