Keyshia Cole is infamous for flying off the handle. However, in the “Rick James” singer’s defense, it also seems that many times she is provoked. Take her recent interview with V103’s Ryan Cameron for instance. The soon-to-be divorced star called up the station to discuss her new single “Rick James” and naturally, the hosts also asked about her split from estranged husband, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson.
“Some things just don’t last forever,” Keyshia expressed. “We definitely are co-parenting right now. He’s a great father. You know, I wanna stress that issue. A lot of guys out there don’t care of their children after the relationship doesn’t work. He makes sure DJ is well taken care of, not just financially. We good, we working it out and we’re straight.”
The hosts then began to probe, insisting that she sounded like she was offering “politically correct ” answers.
“It’s not an easy thing to deal with,” she added.
Keyshia appeared to be rolling with the punches and even responded to questions about whether or not she rushed into her marriage with Daniel. But she was clearly thrown off when Ryan’s co-host Wanda Smith asked if she felt that her occupation allowed her to be “wifey material” during her marriage.
“Do you feel like you were wifey material?” Wanda questioned.
“You know what? Y’all really f**kin’ with my sh** right now,” Keyshia responded. “I got some other sh** going on. What y’all wanna talk about? Tell me now.”
“You were so busy, you had your career popping off and you were doing your thing,” Wanda explained. “Then you had to phase out and start doing the wifey things, the cooking, taking care of the kids. Were you really ready for that or were you still trying to do your music thing?”
When Wanda compared Keyshia to Monica Brown and her decision to sort draw back from the music industry, to make her point more plain, Keyshia responded:
“So you trying to insinuate that I was one dimensioned?”
“Listen! Monica [Brown] I’m sure is doing her thing. This isn’t ain’t no first rodeo for Monica. She’s been through the ringer, this, that and the other. But at the end of the day, we can handle all that! It’s a point of a man taking care of his business. Straight up on that. We good! We handle our sh**. We do what we do! Period! I don’t know what to tell you about that.”
Keyshia managed to keep her composure for the remainder of the interview; however, once she had a moment to think things over, she quickly took to Twitter and blasted the station over it.
“I’m done wit interviews for a minute! That interview with V103 left a very bad taste. And to be honest, I don’t deserve that kinda treatment,” she tweeted.
“Y’all can kiss my a**! With that phony sh**.”
“Y’all should be ashamed of ya selves! Not cool. Never another interview from me!”
“Man. Y’all don’t even have to play my record. I’m cool wit that!”
“Man. It’s good tho. All love. God Bless. I’m gonna keep my head high and keep puttin one foot in front of the other! #BelieveTht Neva again tho.”
Divorce is obviously an extremely sensitive subject for a person who is going through it, so we understand why she wasn’t 100% comfortable with the questions being asked.
