Keyshia Cole isn't friendly with her ex-husband
Keyshia Cole is not getting back with Booby Gibson any time soon. In fact, the singer doesn’t even consider the man to be a friend. When a fan mentioned that she wished the pair would get back together on Twitter, Cole jokingly said that she was blocked before explaining the current state of their relationship.
“Not to be harsh,” she wrote. “But I wouldn’t consider him a friend. Friends don’t do the things he continously did to me. But for my son…”
Booby and Cole have a 7-year-old son together. That seems to be the only thing keeping Cole attached to her Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood co-star. Gibson has revealed in previous interviews that his actions are the reason that the pair split.
“I felt the most pain. I felt the most vulnerable. I felt humiliated. I felt embarrassed. I felt shamed when me and Keyshia broke up. I take full responsibility for our marriage not working,” he told BET.
Gibson spiraled after their relationship ended, saying that he took to drinking to deal with the problems he was facing. “It was just me, a bottle of Patron and all my problems. I think that was probably one of the lowest points of my life,” he said.
Though neither side has confirmed the facts of their split, Gibson won’t deny that infidelity is the reason they went their separate ways.
“I won’t say that I didn’t cheat, but I will say that I cheated my wife out of a friend in a lot of situations where I was supposed to hold her down and I didn’t,” he told RollingOut Magazine. “I cheated my wife out of a lot of different things. I take that responsibility — I do.”
“I think that life happened,” he continued. “In certain situations, you are a match made in heaven. But at the same time, nothing is perfect — and nobody is perfect. Then in some situations, you aren’t going to be as perfect as some people expect you to be. What happened with me and her was that our relationship was out there for everyone to see. So whenever we were going through our problems, it became public and everyone saw the ups and downs. With us, I think it was just a matter of us growing apart over time. I can’t say that there was one thing that broke us up, but what I can say as a man; when you are in a relationship, and you say those vows, I take full responsibility for everything that didn’t go right.”
Gibson did refute the story around the picture of him with a stripper. While the shot launched a thousand rumors that he was cheating on his wife, he pointed out the obvious: Going to a strip club isn’t cheating.
“As far as the whole stripper thing goes, of course I went to the strip club and had a picture taken of me with a stripper. But what I’ve been trying to figure out when I hear people gossiping and talking is, since when do two pictures constitute a relationship?,” he said. “It only happens that way when the media tries to paint a picture that this is what happened to our relationship. And what I will say about my wife is that she’s really into the social media world. So when stories like this start floating around, and she feels the need to get involved with it, it makes it seem more true than it really is. But that didn’t really have anything to do with us being separated, because when you think about it, we were actually already separated before all of that came out.”
Keyshia Cole has deleted her social media since the posts about Gibson came out.
