Keyshia Cole apologized after falsely announcing last week she was pregnant with her second child, but then asked fans to stop body shamming her.
The 36-year-old singer seemed to announce she was pregnant last week when she posted an Instagram photo of herself in a snake-patterned outfit with the hashtags “#PreggoInMyFashionNovaFit #CongradulationsAreInOrder”
Fans flooded the comment section, congratulating Cole on her pregnancy. The next day, however, Cole admitted the announcement was a hoax, but for a reason.
“I KINDA APOLOGIZE for #TROLLING yesterday, telling y’all I was ##Preggo!!!!” Cole wrote in a separate post. “Buuuuuuut y’all need to stop body shamming me and sayin I’m PREGNANT 🤰 EVERY OTHER DAY !!!! Like seriously, it hurts my feelings.”
Cole has an 8-year-old son, Daniel Hiram Jr., with former Cleveland Cavaliers player and ex-husband Daniel Gibson. The couple split in 2014.
She is currently dating rapper Niko Khale. The 22-year-old rapper recently shared a photo of himself spending Fourth of July with Cole and her son.
