Keyshia Cole Ordered to Pay $100,000 for Assault at Birdman’s Condo
The pay out stems from a 2014 incident when Keyshia, who was dating Birdman at the time, went to his house in the middle of the night. Upon finding a woman at the house (Mercadel), Keyshia went off and attacked her, prompting the woman to sue.
Mercadel says the singer "punched her in the face, yanked her hair and clawed her face and mouth with her nails." She also says that she has lost the use of a finger due to the attack.
At any rate, the suit ended in a default judgment because Keyshia didn't show up in court. Although she was suing for $4 million, Mercadel ended being awarded $100,635.
In other Keyshia Cole news, her latest album,11:11 Reset, has earned critical acclaim since its release earlier this year. She performed a track from the album "Inescapable" at the 2017 Soul Train Awards last month.
As for the $100,000 judgment, she hasn't said anything about it publicly as of yet.
