Keyshia Cole doesn’t want anyone messing with her man. And she’s so serious about it she might just throw hands.
The “Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood” alum made that clear on Instagram Thursday, Oct. 18 when a commenter appeared to be getting too friendly with the 37-year-old singer’s boyfriend, Niko Khale.
“Really an island boy at heart,” Khale captioned a recent shirtless photo on his account as he showed off his tatted chest and sleeve.
“😍😍😍😍😍😘😘😘😘 sorry Keisha but I might have to take this island boy😁,” a fan remarked in the 23-year-old’s comments.
“@god3ss96 lol. When the last time you got yo ass beat? 🤔🤨,” Cole replied.
Several people ate up the moment.
“😩😩😩🤣🤣🤣🤣 I ❤️ @keyshiacole for that one you better work.”
“@keyshiacole i’m dead af 💀💀💀💀💀”
“@keyshiacole Lmao set her straight 🤣🤣🤣🤣”
Yet the user Cole took aim at, @[email protected], wasn’t here for it.
“@keyshiacole over a dude? Never,” she said.
Some fans pointed out that the star wasn’t being serious.
“[email protected] lol damn you can’t even joke about her man 💀😂😴”
“@ms.lady_clp sis said it was a joke joke 😂😂😂.”
But other commenters think the IG user should watch her back.
“Why she wanna mess wit Keisha tho? She from the bay area and im.pretty sure OAKLAND girls get down to the business👊🎤👊😳.”
“Period lol my sis from Oakland y’all know she don’t play 😂😂🤟🏾”
“@keyshiacole facts sis fight for what’s yours 😭😭👊🏼💪🏼”
Still at least one commenter thought Cole was out of line.
“@keyshiacole I just can’t agree that threats towards a fan is the way. These are the type of comments YOU WANT FOR HIM from his fans. You shouldn’t take any of it personal or feel insecure IN ANY WAY. YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL QUEEN and I’m sure you have nothing to worry about. … You really should take some tips from @nikokhale on Giving back to the fans and showing them love in return. The CELEBRITY- FAN relationship, is just that, a relationship in life and it should be GIVE and TAKE. You can’t just TAKE LOVE, you have to give some too. You don’t even interact with you followers when you go live. Please do better Queen. 😘🙏💜👑 #OutOfLove.”
