We all have family that are sometimes difficult to love but, singer Keyshia Cole and her outspoken sister Neffeteria also known as “Nefe” take that different heights. In a recent sister beef, Neffeteria had a change of heart and gave her little sis a lengthy apology on Instagram. “Dear @keyshiacole first let me start off by saying I love you with all my heart, I have been thinking of you for awhile now and I must say I miss my sister!” She went into her apology and said, “Forgive me if I hurt you, forgive me if I didn’t support you, forgive me if I let you down, forgive me if I embarrassed you, forgive if I didn’t do well in your eyes because you have wanted more for me period!” She closed the apology and said, “My heart has been suffering and I’m ready to be healed and this is apart of my healing…”
Dear @keyshiacole first let me start off by saying I love you with all my heart, I have been thinking of you for awhile now and I must say I miss my sister! Every since you came and got myself and my children from Sacramento things really haven't been the same between us, I can go on and on about why it's not but it will do no good to do that because our past will not predict our future. Forgive me if I hurt you, forgive me if I didn't support you, forgive me if I let you down, forgive me if I embrassed you, forgive if I didn't do well in your eyes because you have wanted more for me period! I'm sorry for whatever I may have done for you to be distanced from me and my children… I don't know why you keep Dj from us but as a mother I'm sure you have your reasons…. Someone of a wise mind told me to humble myself and accept my actions and put my pride down.. I love and miss you more than you and I can't go another day without my sister knowing this, the God in me will not allow it… My heart has been suffering and I'm ready to be healed and this is apart of my healing… (Sam Elite Robert Latifah Ellis) forgive me as well… Now I can move on😘
Even though Neffe is seemingly apologetic, the sisters have had ongoing issues in the past. Neffe wrote a book about some of their disagreements back in 2012 entitled,”Price I Paid.” Keyshia was not happy about the book. “How many of ya’ll have leaches in your own family? I need to know I’m not alone! B*tch talk about me in ya book and wearing the shoes I gave u on the cover?”
Their strained relationship also played out in Keyshia’s reality show ‘Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is’ where Cole was frustrated with taking care of Neffe while still trying to reconnect with her mom Frankie, who placed her in foster care.
But Cole didn’t allow their estranged relationship to sever their sisterhood. The R&B singer responded ‘PUBLICLY.’ ” Oh and Neffe I did receive your PUBLIC apology, and I understand why you went PUBLIC with it. And I thought I should RESPOND PUBLICLY, and our lives have been VERY PUBLICIZED, and I want you to kno, that I do love u back! ALWAYS WILL.” Cole continued, “And naw we haven’t been close, and that’s been going on for some time now, but I’ve BEEN forgiven you. I’ve forgiven mom and everyone I’ve felt, has failed me in my personal relationships❤🙏🏽”
Fans then wished the sisters the best.
