Keyshia Cole Wants No More Drama

Keyshia Cole and Frankie

Keyshia Cole, who is engaged to Cleveland Cavalier Daniel “Boobie” Gibson and is expecting her first child this year, is looking for some peace and quiet. The “Let It Go” singer has decided to cease contact with her biological mother, Frankie Lons, and sisters Neffe and Elite, in order to ensure that her child grows up in a drama-free environment.

The following statement was issued on behalf of Cole via her publicist.

To all my friends and fans – It’s time that I clear the air. It’s not a secret that I haven’t been in contact with my mother Frankie, and my sisters Neffe and Elite and I never wanted to air out our differences to the public. While I won’t go into detail here I find it necessary to let you guys know I decided to stop communication with them because I was at a point in my life where I needed serenity and peace to move forward. Please know I love my family very much but it was time to let it go. You guys are a witness to a lot of what was happening from watching on air and online.

Now that I am becoming a mom my passion for having a loving and peaceful home for my child is my #1 priority. It’s very important to both Daniel and I. My plate is very full; I have a new baby coming, we are planning our wedding and I am working in the studio on a new album that I am close to completing. The stress that my family is giving me with their constant false reports is not healthy and it’s not what I need at this time in my life. Please understand that there are only a few people that can officially confirm or deny anything that’s happening in my life and that’s me, Daniel, and my publicist, Tresa Sanders. And my girl Monica never lies.

Love Your Girl,

KC

    The Kardashians get a reality show which land them a new book, clothing line with BeBe, fragrance line, jewlry line and everytime they twitter, one is paid $10,000…please do the math! Where as Tiny and Toya & Frankie and Neffie get a reality show and get a possible book from Toya, a photo shoot from them all, and being disrespected by people from their own culture etc…please do the math! Not to say the Kardadians are better because the show is as dysfunctional as Frankie and Neffie & Tiny and Toya but you do the math!

    Something to think about! Ummmm! And their not spending one dime from their own bank account to start these business ventures either! Sometimes we as African Americans have to think smarter! :) I think African Americans work backwards when it comes to being business people. It would be an accomplishment if a person could not only impress the people in their own culture but impressed people in several cultures! Truth be told we don’t only represent ourselves, but we represent everyone that looks just like us! Its more to life then designer handbags and big watches! Strip Toya of all her LV bags and what do you have. Toya lacks self esteem and self identity. She have said that she wants her own identity from Lil Wayne but she still has his last name and always talking about Wayne this Wayne that! She loves the attention wheather its negative or positive because she never got any as a child, she need something to define her. Whether it be Tiny, Kandi etc…so she had a drug addict mother, ok so what. In urban community you see that or worse, where is those people reality show. If your going to present a reality show on life ills please show growth…I haven’t seen a reality show yet that really provide substance but Monica’s! Young girls being impressed with their nails, clothes, handbags etc..guys please open your eyes. I’m tired of people like Toya and the rest of the dysfunctional people making it hard for your every day people. Having to defend yourself and your culture day to day. I dress in suits every day, I’m not focused on an handbag or tattoo but when my Executive see me, he see a Toya! I’m tired BET, I’m tired! Our kids are the future!!! You show me a young lady that’s not tattooed up, can speak well, not posting a gun on twitter that she’s so proud of, have values and morales, work hard to establish her own foundation and know how to be an example for others, then I will be impressed! But trust from experience, the topic of Toya will not last! The media asked Toya what do you love about Tiny, what was the real connection with you guys? And she answered, “Oh she love to shop like me” WHAT! Your telling me that’s all you have in common with Tiny, please! No disrespect but I haven’t seen one classy Southerner yet!
    Please advise Toya she’ll never know what lies in front of her if she’s always looking back! Understand where you been, so you can be ready for where you’re going! When you stay grounded, & stay humble, you’re stay blessed! I know she’s young but she needs to humble herself a little more. Bet bragging about they had 1.9 million people watching the Tiny & Toya show, well the Kardashians has more people following them on twitter everyday! Do the math people, open your eyes! Stop being so conditioned to hold on to your ghetto ways. Have your own self identity and stop following behind people because their hot for a moment! BET do anything for money and its a shame that their audience is more interested in the negative than the positive in this crazy world. Black history month is coming up, who is BET proud of Lil Wayne, TI, or Gucci Mane? Come on! BET Don’t win 1.9 viewers, win a nation! I think these people are just attention seekers! Its not your job Keyshia to control your family, let them control themselves…talking about a train rack, lordy!

    @AMary, Wtf I didn’t even read your whole post but I think “Tiny & Toya” is very inspirational. Toya does not lack self esteem she is very determined to have a better life for her and her daughter. She wants to write a book to help out other young girls who are going through what she went through in life. And Tiny struggles with a fiancee who is in prison and a father with Alzheimer’s. How is that degrading to the black community? It’s not. Just because they both have tattoos does not mean anything about them personally.

    Good keyshia. I didn’t know she knew monica like that (on that level)

    Im happy 4her now, she changed so much from when she first came out. Good she not talkin to Neffe and Frankie, both are H.A.M and just a too ghetto and they need to cut that out because little do they know that when people watch their show, there not laughin with them, their laughin at them.smh

    Oh and glad she coming out with another album!

    I’ve had to do that in my own life. People can only tell you verbally and in other ways that they don’t want to/need to be a part of your life so many times before you just say, “Okay. And I have peace with that, because I have to move on/live my life as best I can.” I find no value in pointless drama. I’m never that bored.

    In addition: I liked Tiny and Toya because I actually HATE reality shows but I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t at all what I might have expected.

    keyshia and monica both have stated how close they are, i think its great because monica has been where keyshia is trying to go and watching monicas show i see how he knowledge could benefit keyshia and other young people .shes always open and honest about her mistakes…as for frankie she needs to be in a rehab quick..SHE IS VERY SICK and the children nor us addults need to see her display that on tv every week . especially since shes not gtetting any help.. shes clearly getting worse

    Growing with a lot of family issues myself I completely understand where she’s coming from. Once you realize that your past is haunting you, and you have to let go of it to move forward you do what you have to do. Nobody in this life is going to make you happy but yourself. I recently cut off many of my family members. I’m an individual in the industry as well which I’ll leave my name anonymously order to focus on your career, and building your brand you need a clear thing. You made a very tough decision, but you did the right thing!!

    Kudos to you Keyshia,enough is enough and it is all about you!!!! It is perfectly ok to put distance between those who DRAIN all the positive energy from CONTINUE TO STAND TALL and take all of Yvonne’s guidance love the others at a distance,If they truely love you they will understand ” YOU WENT WAY ABOVE AND BEYAOND THE CALL OF DUTY,” It’s about your God given talent and remember to thine own self be true,,,,,YOUR ONLY OBLIGATION IS TO THE HEAVENLY FATHER and that’s were it ends no hanger on’s !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It’s always beautiful to see a young woman grow to maturity, instead of allowing others to stagnate.
