R&B singer Keyshia Cole released a statement (see below) regarding the status of her relationship or lack thereof with her family.

Cole’s statement comes on the heels of her sister Elite (hint: lip piercing) allegedly commenting on her twitter page about Keyshia not purchasing Christmas gifts for her nieces and nephews. To add insult to injury, Keyshia’s mother Frankie reportedly claimed on a local Atlanta station that Keyshia and her fiance, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson of the Cleveland Cavailers, were already married
“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,
I definitely feel where Keyshia is coming from with wanting to have a peaceful and drama-free environment, even more so, since she is starting a new family. Shit, I found myself on more than one occasion turning the channel cause I couldn’t deal with her family’s foolishness, so I can only imagine what Keyshia was going through.

If reports are true that Elite blasted Keyshia for not buying her nieces and nephews (I bet she was particularly salty about her son not getting nothing from Auntie Key Key), I’m going to need for her to go sit the phuck down somewhere STAT! Boo you just popped on the scene and who asked you to move to Atlanta anyway? Be grateful that God allows you to wake up every morning healthy enough to torture our eyes with that truly heinous lip ring. Get up, get out, and get something, with your ole begging ass!

Frankie, so much to say and so little time. I’ll keep it short and sweet: keep your nose clean; be supportive of your children and grandchildren; and stop acting like a basehead --unless it’s not an act, then in the alternative, take your Nike Air wearing, crooked wig rocking ass to rehab!

I hope Keyshia doesn’t cut her family off completely, because at the end of the day they are your family. That’s not saying you have to deal with their foolishness on daily basis, but you can still maintain a relationship with your family, especially your nieces and nephews. Lord knows they have been through enough already!
