Keyshia Cole is gearing up for a starring role on VH1’s ‘Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood,’ but it looks like the drama is starting early for the R&B belle.
According to court documents, the singer has been served with a lawsuit by Sabrina Mercadel – a woman who claims the star put them paws on her. She is seeking $4 million in compensation for her injuries.
As for the catalyst for the alleged incident, it’s Cole’s ex Birdman.
The pair are believed to have dated back in 2014. Yet, that all came to a head when Cole arrived at this Los Angeles penthouse only to find Mercadel there.
She is said to have flown into a jealous rage and laid the literal smackdown on her love rival.
Explaining the total tallied, Mercadel listed the following:
$1.5 mil, pain and suffering
$500k, emotional distress
$2 mil, loss of use of body part
$200k, future medical expenses
$50k, loss of earnings
$300k, future loss of earnings
Interestingly, Mercadel (who says she only had a “platonic” relationship with Birdman) was initially suing his building (for what reason who knows). However, she was since dropped that suit and is making a beeline for Keish.
