According to court reports reportedly obtained by The Blast, the 38-year-old singer and her ex recently informed the court that they had reached a deal in their divorce. The settlement will cover the division of their marital property, custody of their son Daniel Gibson Jr., and support.
As previously reported, the “Let It Go” singer initially filed for divorce back in September 2017. The star cited irreconcilable differences for the split and listed the date of separation as Oct. 31, 2014.
The four-time Grammy nominee and ex-Cleveland Cavaliers player were ordered by the judge presiding over their case to appear in court or else be fined. The judge argued that the pair had prolonged the proceedings long enough in what had been two years since the two initiated the divorce.
Documents stated that, at the time, the pair were required to appear in a Los Angeles County court for a hearing on March 16, 2020. “This is your FOURTH AND FINAL NOTICE,” the documents read.
In an Instagram post shared back in January 2019, Cole revealed her hopes to secure joint legal and physical custody of their 10-year-old son. The singer also explained that that factor was the cause behind her refusal to finalize their divorce.
“I am not giving him full custody nor no damn spousal support! And I’ve asked him over and over to do so, the ball is in his court,” Cole explained. The star also noted she “rather not do it” publicly, “but the facts are the facts. And if he were trying to do things the right way, this would have been over.” Cole and Gibson tied the knot on May 21, 2011. The marriage collapsed after Gibson reportedly cheat on the singer.
Since their separation, both parties had since moved on to younger partners. Cole welcomed her second son, Tobias Khale, with her now-rumored ex-boyfriend, 24-year-old rapper Niko Khale. Meanwhile, Gibson is seemingly happy in love with his girlfriend, 24-year-old Sinfony Rosales.
