The actor and comedian dropped by “The Real” this week and said Wonder once stole a girlfriend of his. Whether Cole was serious or joking around isn’t known, but some will probably find his story entertaining nonetheless.
“This is real beef,” Cole explained. “Me and Stevie Wonder. He took my girl from me. We went to this concert. I told her she can go meet him, and she went and met him, and she came back and she was like, ‘Man, here go $100, why don’t you take a cab home.’ I knew her broke ass didn’t have $100. I knew Stevie gave it to her.”
The “black-ish” actor then explained how he and the “As” singer settled things. And some might say this part of the story sounded like Cole was delivering one of his stand-up comedy routines.
“Stevie’s assistant and Stevie walked into this bar, and I was sitting in the cut and his assistant told Stevie, ‘Yo, there go Deon.’ He was like ‘Where?'” said Cole.
“He told his assistant to tell me to come over, and I came over and he was like ‘What’s this stuff you talking about on Instagram?'” added the comedian. “And I said ‘You took my girl, you know you did.’ And he was like ‘How she look?'”
Cole also told some of the story in an August 23 Instagram post that showed a photo of him and Wonder. And he included a part of the story that he didn’t tell on “The Real,” about Wonder wanting to fight him.
“We exchanged some more words, then he looked like he wanted to swing so I stood as close to him as possible so he couldn’t swing,” wrote Cole. “Then some other people came and calmed us down. Then we talked a little more about it and now here we are, FRIENDS AGAIN! So if you got beef with someone, just talk it out.”
