Keyshia Cole has shown how willing she is to assist her family when they’re in need. After helping her biological mother time and time again with her drug issues, the singer is now giving financial support to her ex-husband for the sake of their son.
“I didn’t know my biological father coming up,” the newest cast member of “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” tells E!’s “Daily Pop” Thursday, July 20. “So, it’s kind of a strong emotional situation for me because I want [my son] DJ to have everything that I didn’t. So, even though he’s done a lot of things in the marriage that was the ultimate no-no, you know what? It’s not about me and him at this point. My son is 7, he needs his father. And Daniel [Gibson] is going through some financial things. I feel like, you know what? We’re co-parents. At the end of the day, if I can help in any way, I would want him to do it for me if I were in that predicament. And all that matters is that DJ is there with him and he gets to see him.”
Cole and Gibson wed in 2011 before the former Cleveland Cavaliers guard filed for divorce in 2014. In the season 4 premire of LHHH Monday, July 24, Heavy.com reported Gibson acknowledged Cole was willing to let him continue to see his son regularly, despite his past cheating and lies.
“We’ve been going through it for a very long time as far as the separation and then back together,” Cole said of the state of her relationship with Gibson. “And that’s the reason why I ultimately made the decision of just making sure we go our separate ways. We don’t confuse things for [DJ], but know that he still has both parents.”
