daniel-2-650x433Daniel Gibson and Keyshia Cole went from displaying their happy family on reality TV to subtly or not so subtly fighting with each other through social media.  Gibson was pictured with strippers while Cole hinted at friction in their home through tweets and memes.

The rumors continued to circulate until Cole took to the airwaves and officially announced that the two were over.  Not only did she announce the split, she also confirmed the rumors that Gibson had cheated on her.  In her song “Next Time (Won’t Give My Heart Away)” she expresses her regret over taking Gibson back singing:

“The crazy part about it is I took you right back / I thought you were a changed man / I tried to work it out for the sake of my family / But you took my kindness for weakness and my love for granted”


Gibson kept quiet on the whole ordeal and is finally breaking his silence in the latest issue of Rolling Out.

One of the first things that people want to know is, what went wrong between you and Keyshia Cole?
I think that life happened. In certain situations, you are a match made in heaven. But at the same time, nothing is perfect — and nobody is perfect. Then in some situations, you aren’t going to be as perfect as some people expect you to be. What happened with me and her was that our relationship was out there for everyone to see. So whenever we were going through our problems, it became public and everyone saw the ups and downs. With us, I think it was just a matter of us growing apart over time. I can’t say that there was one thing that broke us up, but what I can say as a man; when you are in a relationship, and you say those vows, I take full responsibility for everything that didn’t go right.

Did you cheat?

No? Well there are songs out by her that say something totally different.
Well, let me put it like this. I won’t say that I didn’t cheat, but I will say that I cheated my wife out of a friend in a lot of situations where I was supposed to hold her down and I didn’t. I cheated my wife out of a lot of different things. I feel like when we got together, I thought I was a man, and I thought I had it all figured out but I didn’t. I think I was like 23 when we met, and so a lot of mistakes that you shouldn’t make as a man in a relationship with your wife, I made. So you can go down the line — I probably made every mistake. The difference between me then and me now is that back then, I probably would have tried to sit here and make an excuse like, “oh it was because of her attitude, and it made me go out and cheat on her.” No, that’s a sucker move — that’s for a coward to say. So I‘m sitting here telling you that regardless of what she did, I married her. I loved her. And none of that other stuff should have happened. We’re supposed to still be together doing it right.

It has been reported that you were out cheating with strippers and doing a host of other things. How do you address those very specific accusations?
As far as the whole stripper thing goes, of course I went to the strip club and had a picture taken of me with a stripper. But what I’ve been trying to figure out when I hear people gossiping and talking is, since when do two pictures constitute a relationship? It only happens that way when the media tries to paint a picture that this is what happened to our relationship. And what I will say about my wife is that she’s really into the social media world. So when stories like this start floating around, and she feels the need to get involved with it, it makes it seem more true than it really is. But that didn’t really have anything to do with us being separated, because when you think about it, we were actually already separated before all of that came out.

    I think that was a big move for him, to be a man and admit he was wrong. I agree with him when you are young and immature, you are still learning, and you do tend to make a lot of mistakes that you wish you hadn’t. But that’s part of life! The most important thing is, that you learn from them and recognize what you have done wrong, which he has now done. That’s a big step, and a sign of maturity!

    I give him his props for admitting his wrong in the relationship,cauee like he said he could have came about immaturely but he didn’t. Now on keyshia,s part you don’t believe everything you hear,if your says it didnt go down then you should trust you husband. In my career and personnel life would be totally sperate

  • I applaud him for not pointing the finger, and taking responsibility for his part! I just wished that she would take responsibility for her part as well, because it takes two to marry, and two to separate! I think they’re both good people, and I think they should work it out. Time has passed, and I’m sure they both have grown a lot since their divorce! It saddens me when black families fail, but I understand that the media helped their problems be amplified especially with Keyshia feeding into it like he said! I think she fed into it due to her insecurities, because if she was secure within herself, no outside source could persuade her to think negatively about her husband! I wish them the best for the sake of their beautiful son!

    To the last reply if you follow Keyshia you would know almost 2 months ago Keyshia djd own up to her responsibilities on the breakfast club.The whole ideal is when you share your hurts with someone you don’t expect them to hurt you in the same matter. I do commend him on standing up to the plate. And yes people will take his interview and turn it into what they want it to mean justvas they have done many of hers. I love these two people because of the spark they brought to each other. But I think alot of people were or may have been or maybe I should just speak for myself. I think I was more outraged at the F that B video than the stripper video, because whether it was directed at her or not what does he think his son will tnink of it when he gets of age. Words are words videos are everlasting. We as people can go to family and friends for advise or just for a ear to vent but its up to them to sit down and just share with each other the things they may have missed because maybe tbey were upset at the time and didn’t really hear a concern they may have had. Just remember a woman scorned is far greater than one just angry. But I truly hope down the line they can work it out. Just because it’s a happier fit.

    I respect hm for admitting to hs wrong. Some men just won’t admit period. I still wish they was n would get bk together loved them as a couple.

  • Nanette Scott says:

    I feel as though Daniel was doing a big thing to put his business out there like that, it don’t matter what people think because they are always going to have an opinion. It does however take some weight off of him and how things happened now whether they are all true or he is completely transparent about it all. The matter is they are broke up now and if they are to heal or make things work for their son the media really needs to stay out of their business, but that’s not going to happen because people or misery loves company. Folk just can’t let celebrities be happy or think they are not human, this stuff is REAL and to affect people’s lives with misinformed stuff only grows into a monster and turns people’s lives around.
