Keyshia was arrested on two charges; an outstanding reckless driving warrant, and a battery charge for the incident that night. After posting bail of $46,000 Cole was released. She has made no comment about the incident, but following her release did take to Instagram to post a selfie with her dog, captioned "Me and my LolaMae!! She knows my [heart]."


The singer is due to release her sixth album 'Point of No Return' in three weeks' time, and has been on a tour in the US to promote the release. Keyshia has never shyed away from controversy in the past, including rifts with fellow musicians Lil' Mo and Gucci Mane. Her spat with Lil' Mo has been going for an impressive eight years, reignited when Cole was vocally critical of Beyonce in 2013. She did however recently reconcile with some of her estranged family members, who are hoping to star in a reality show of their own, following in the footsteps of Keyshia who starred in two reality shows for BET in 2007 and 2011.
