Keyshia Cole was born on October 15, 1981, in Oakland, California, USA. Her mother, Francine Lons, was a drug addict and couldn’t take care of her. She went to prison. As a result, Leon and Yvonne Cole, her family friends, adopted her. From there, she got her last name, ‘Cole.’
In 2016, after finding results from a DNA test, she met her biological father for the first time. He was a boxing trainer. Although they are her biological parents, she considers ‘Leon’ and ‘Yvonne’ as her real parents because a parents duty is not only to give birth to a child. They should also nurture their children.
After achieving success in life through tough work and commitment, she gives all credits to her parents (not biological parents). They too are very proud of her. She has two sisters, Neffe Pugh and Elite Noel. Details regarding her education and the colleges that she attended are unknown at this time.
