Keyshia Cole has spoken out about the social media turmoil that has surrounded her and free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown.
She went on Instagram to clear the air after Brown published a now-deleted video on Instagram showing off what seemed to be a lower back tattoo of his initials on the R&B singer.
Brown, 33, captioned the video showcasing the lower back tattoo, saying, “You Ain’t Pimpin’ Until You Hit An RnB Diva, Right? #KeepPimpin #FreeAgent”
Cole, 40, was offended by the caption and went on Instagram Live to express her feelings.
Cole said in the video with celebrity stylist EJ King, which was filmed by The Shade Room, “It was a touch harsh.” “Perhaps he is unaware that what he said was a touch harsh. ‘Do you want me to edit the caption?’ he asked when I spoke to him. No, I don’t want you to modify the caption, I said.”
She also revealed she was “trying to figure out” her connection with Brown during the Instagram Live, despite the fact that she believes he made his intentions obvious.
She stated, “I believe he made it quite plain.” “‘Baby, I loved you at first, but now I don’t — it’s a no,’ he said.”
According to a screenshot obtained by The Shade Room, Cole also posted and soon erased a comment on her Instagram Story implying she was still furious about his posts.
She added, “Yea I was major trippin..smh I see it now.” “I have a 12-year-old daughter. That kind of disregard for what… Nothing is worth being treated with such contempt, especially when you don’t deserve it. Fa ya had a lot of love, respect, and adoration. That wasn’t reciprocal, either.”
Brown went on Instagram Live shortly after her messages with another message. In a video obtained by the site, he remarked, “Keyshia Cole, I’m a player dude.” “Keyshia, we don’t want you… I’m not going back. I will proceed.”
Brown’s representative did not immediately reply to a request for comment from PEOPLE.
Brown’s single “Don’t Leave” from his rap album Paradigm was released in April, and the two collaborated on it. During a TMZ interview at the time,
“I think he’s really talented, for sure,” she said. “I love the body of work that he created. I think he’s gonna be great. I do. I wouldn’t have collaborated if I didn’t think he’d be great.”
