While currently in the studio preparing for the release of her new studio album, Keyshia Cole has released a statement explaining the issues surrounding her relationship with her family. In the release, provided via Freddy O, the songstress notes that she has severed all communication with her family. Read the full statement below:
“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,
This action demonstrates that Cole is one of the few media savvy artists to have emerged in recent years. Rather than continuing to fuel the chaos, she has expertly explained her views and displayed sound professionalism. Regarding her Monica comment, the latter reported on Twitter page earlier this week that Cole is expecting a baby boy. Therefore it seems that Monica is indeed correct. Congrats to Cole!
