Keyshia Cole Is Not Dating Maino, But She Is Going On Tour

First there were the cruel rumors that Keyshia Cole’s mother had died in a car accident, and now there’s a pesky rumor that the R&B singer is dating rapper Maino. So not true says Keyshia’s manager, Manny Halley. One thing that is true is that she’s going on tour with Keri Hilson, The-Dream, and Bobby Valentino beginning May 13. Itinerary below.

On behalf of Keyshia Cole and Imani Entertainment, Halley released the following statement:

“In response to the rumor about superstar R&B artist Keyshia Cole dating rapper Maino, which has been floating around the ’net, I, Manny Halley, would like all the bloggers to personally know that there is no truth to this rumor. Keyshia and Maino do not have a personal relationship at all. Keyshia is gearing up for her headlining tour with Dream, Keri, and Bobby Valentino, working on a script for her biopic, and working in the studio nightly on her fourth studio release, which is slated for December 2009.”
