When Keyshia Cole released her last album, Woman To Woman, she was a happily married woman. Two years later, she's on the verge of divorce and living life as a single mother and her new music reflects that.
This morning, Tthe 32-year-old singer stopped by The Breakfast Club Morning Show to talk her upcoming album and her current relationship status, while also dishing on her estranged hubby Daniel "Boobie" Gibson cheating on her.
Despite everything she's been through with Boobie, Keyshia still believes in love. She says she wants someone who will be her best friend and vice versa, much like Jay Z and Beyoncé's relationship, but she wouldn't date another basketball player out of respect for her ex.
She also shared her thoughts on domestic violence, admitting that she has hit Boobie before, and she revealed whether or not she gave her man passes for cheating.
The most interesting tidbit in the interview came when Angela Yee brought up a picture she posted of Diamond during BET Awards weekend. According to Keyshia, Diamond is creeping with Boobie.
Catch the interview highlights below:
On if she would take her husband back if he took Robin Thicke-like measures:
Recently I told him I hope you really find that woman and you be good to her.
When she thinks she'll be ready to date and whether she prefers another high-profile romance or a "cutie in the cut":
I don’t even know. I’m not dating now. I would like to date.
No cuties. I don’t want any cuties. Not necessarily ugly [either]. I wouldn’t like an ugly guy, but I mean he just gotta get me mentally. It’s a lot going on up here. [Don't send me] bible scriptures in the morning. That worked for Gib [Boobie] and I'm not falling for that no more [laughs].
On her new perspective on love:
It has to be friendship, best friends. Whoever the guy is that I'm going to end up with forever, I want him to be my best friend! Like you know guys be in the car together like “yeah, this my homie!” I’m like where is the girls and guys like that? Every time I turn around it’s bros and bros on top of bros. What’s up with ya main chick that you just ride with? Like Bey and Jay, I see him like that’s his homie at the end of the day. Tip and Tiny, that’s his homie. Whatever they're going through, they’re friends and I think that ultimately matters and that’s really what I pray for and what I want now.
On her thoughts on domestic violence:
Men need to stop cheating chile because it just hurts so bad and that what causes you to get your mouth almost smacked off, especially if you do it more than once, twice, now I’m not even gonna say nothing. I’m just going to slap the dog crap out of you.
Now [guys hitting back] is bad. See, that's why you gotta keep your hands to yourself, but it’s hard. When Gib [Boobie] and I got into it and I kinda smacked him a little hard, he just kinda took it because he knew he was wrong. And then you apologize after it cause he was like [slap] oh I’m so sorry, like I'm sorry, [slap] I'm sorry [slap], hold up [slap] [laughs].
On giving guys passes for cheating:
DJ Envy: Do you give a man a pass if he cheated?
Angela Yee: Before you guys got married he cheated, right? You gave him a pass on that because you thought he learned his lesson.
Envy: Then the second time another pass?
Envy: Third time another pass?
Keyshia: That’s when it has to stop. It's like, 'Okay, you’re not learning and I don’t think you want to.'
Angela: As your wife and your friend you're not supposed to have chicks feeling like they can even come out their mouth and say anything crazy about you.
Keyshia: I wouldn’t want nobody to have that feeling over you. I wouldn’t date nobody out in basketball and have them in like the locker room like 'yeah, yeah, yeah...'
On if she has beef with Diamond
Why would I follow Diamond if I had a problem with her? One thing about the industry is that it's all good...it's all love. Hey, if you're smashing the homie, you're smashing the homie. Don't be cool with me one day and then when you smash my ex, you don't want to talk to me no more.
According to Baller Alert, Angela Yee posted a photo with Diamond recently, and Keyshia commented under the photo
