Keyshia Cole & Daniel ‘Booby’ Gibson Reach Divorce Settlement After 3 Years
Keyshia Cole and former NBA star Daniel “Booby” Gibson have come to an agreement in their divorce after three years.
No specific details of the settlement have surfaced, but it’s said to include marital support, division of marital property, and custody of their 10-year-old son, Daniel, Jr.
The two married in 2011 and Keyshia Cole filed for divorce in September 2017.
In October 2017, theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reported a statement from Daniel Gibson’s lawyer amid reports that the former Cleveland Cavaliers player wanted spousal support and full custody of their child.
His lawyer said,
“Mr. Gibson wishes to clarify that he is not actively seeking spousal support and full custody. Mr. Gibson submitted a full settlement proposal to Ms. Cole some time ago, which excludes spousal support and includes a shared custodial plan for their son.”
He continued and addressed court documents that went public.
“The document in question (i.e. Mr. Gibson’s Response to the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage) is what we in the family law sector call inclusive. This means that a party will always file or respond in a way that gives them the best possible outcome in the event the case goes to trial, as it is much more difficult, time-consuming, and costly for the client to go back and amend a filing to ask for something that was not originally requested. Attorneys who are well-versed in Family Law are aware of this and almost always counsel their clients to file as such with the full understanding that a resolution is typically reached that is acceptable to both parties, particularly in a case like this, where the parties are on amicable terms.”
He ended with,
It is regretful that this document has been publicized and is now subject to scrutiny by individuals unfamiliar with standard family law practices. Mr. Gibson hopes to resolve this matter with Ms. Cole as soon as possible in a way that will allow them to move forward amicably and continue their cooperative co-parenting efforts.”
Since their split, Keyshia began dating Niko Khale. The two welcomed a son together last year.
Still, they sparked breakup rumors when fans noticed they don’t follow each other on social media.
