It appears that Keyshia Cole and her estranged husband, Daniel Gibson, have come to an agreement when it comes to financial support amid their divorce. According to The Blast, the “Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood” alum has agreed to receive zero child support or spousal support in her divorce settlement with the former NBA player.
According to legal documents obtained by the media outlet, the former couple has officially settled their divorce, with the two agreeing to cover the costs of parenting their 10-year-old son Daniel Hiram Gibson Jr. while he is living with each of them. “The Court finds that both parties waive any right to current spousal support. No court shall have jurisdiction to order any spousal support for either party at any time,” the settlement reads. The document also states that “the parties shall have joint custody of the minor child. Each party is ordered to support the minor child while the child is residing with that Party and current child support is set at zero.”
Cole and Gibson were also ordered to “equally share the cost of the minor child’s tuition and aII such cost shall be timely paid directly to the minor’s school.” In the filing, they also have agreed to split events such as birthday parties and “shall meet and confer on any other expenses for the minor child.” Terms also include refraining from speaking negatively about the other party or their family members.
As previously reported, the songstress initially filed for divorce back in September 2017, citing irreconcilable differences, and listed the date of separation as Oct. 31, 2014. The “Trust” singer and former Cleveland Cavaliers player were ordered by the judge presiding over their case to appear in a Los Angeles County court for a hearing on March 16, 2020, or else be fined. The judge argued that the two had prolonged the proceedings long enough in what had been two years since they initiated the divorce.
At the time, Cole claimed that she was hoping to secure joint legal and physical custody of their son, hence the delay. The four-time Grammy nominee took to her Instagram page in January 2019 to explain, stating, “I am not giving him full custody nor no damn spousal support!” The star also noted that news surrounding their split and reported custody battle was out publicly, but she’d “rather not do it this way. But the facts are the facts. And if he were trying to do things the RIGHT WAY, this would’ve been over.”
Cole and Gibson tied the knot on May 21, 2011. However, the marriage collapsed after Gibson reportedly cheated on the singer.
