There’s three sides to every story…. Her side, his side and the truth!!!
I don’t know about y’all, but I was really rooting for Daniel “Boobie” Gibson and Keyshia Cole to make it. Knowing a little but about Keyshia’s past relationships, being adopted and searching for her family, I thought the starting of her own family was the best thing that ever happened to her, but shortly after she and her estranged husband Boobie’s reality show aired, things took a turn for the worst.
Keyshia has been very vocal about her and her husband’s spilt via social media, through her songs and during interviews, but Boobie had yet to speak out and give his side of the story.
Daniel Gibson sat down with Rolling Out magazine for their latest cover issue and gave his side on why he and Keyshia Cole are no longer. Inside, he dished on why their marriage failed, how it’s affected their son, doing reality tv, and whether or not he cheated.
Excerpts and more pics below:
On what went wrong with he 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.
On if he cheated:
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.
On the whole stripper shenanigan:
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 guess he probably feels like he should’ve cheated since the marriage failed anyway.
In other news… Keyshia Cole’s family is headed back to reality tv. Peep those shenanigans here.
