Since becoming a celebrity, Keyshia Cole has continued to be transparent about the challenges that she’s faced with her mother, Frankie. Fans of the soulful singer have watched the mother-daughter have ups and downs on reality TV (Keyshia Cole: the Way It Is; Keyshia & Daniel: Family First; Keyshia Cole: All In) and have even watched Frankie struggle with drug addiction.
Keyshia recently penned a lengthy Instagram post, praising her aunt and sharing that she hasn’t given up on her mother. She writes:
