There have been rumors flying around for a while about how singer Keyshia Cole “disowned” her family, including her mother Frankie and herÂ sisters Neffe & Elite. Well, it seems as there was truth to those rumors because today KeyshiaÂ issued a statement through her publicist, saying:
To all my friends and fans â€“ Itâ€™s time that I clear the air. Itâ€™s not a secret that I havenâ€™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 wonâ€™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. Itâ€™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 itâ€™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 thatâ€™s happening in my life and thatâ€™s me, Daniel, and my publicist, Tresa Sanders. And my girl Monica never lies.
Love Your Girl,
Wow. On one hand I totally understand why she made such a bold move, but on the other hand isn’t family supposed to stick together through good and bad? And the fact that it was her who brought them into the limelight via her reality show, is she to blame in some form for bringing their madness public? Nonetheless you gotta do what you gotta do. And yes, we did see how ghetto & crazy her family was acting. Good luck Keysh! Can’t wait to hear what you’re cooking in the studio!
