Once again the popular social media outlet Twitter has proven itself a battleground for ‘Trust & Believe’ belter Keyshia Cole. As some know, the past two days have seen the Oakland born beauty on the defense after she launched a verbal attack against KMEL 106 – a Californian radio station.
The station, which sponsors the annual holiday-themed showing ‘Holiday House of Soul Concert’, reportedly contacted the songstress to inform her she would be the opening act for up-and-coming R&B hitmaker The Weeknd. The result of which saw Cole, who previously believed she was the headliner, cancel her appearance at the concert.
When rumors swirled that the radio station continued to use Cole’s likeness in advertisements (despite her cancellation), what happened next saw the ‘Let It Go’ hitmaker go on a rampage via her Twitter page:
EVERY F-CKING YEAR I do something major for my city! @KMEL has the nerve to tell me at the last minute they want me to open for the Weeknd. Then @106kmel tells us at last minute if I don’t then there’s no show! Then still uses my name when I refuse! I feel so f-cking disrespected.
And now people in Oakland think I Flaked!!! #STRAIGHTBULLSH-T! The only reason I’m speaking, don’t people thinking i flaked.”
The singer continued stating:
The Twitter rant prompted the radio station to respond by reportedly telling TMZ:
“We were surprised to see Keyshia Cole’s Tweets the night of our show as she was never scheduled to be the show’s final act. When we were notified a week before her performance that she planned to cancel, we immediately removed her name from all advertising and promotion and offered refunds to those fans who requested.”
‘Birthday Sex’ singer Jeremih was called in to replace Cole. So you tell us:
