Keyshia Cole’s adoptive father, Leon Cole, died earlier this month after being hospitalized with complications from COVID-19. “He is the whole reason for my surname Cole, the only father I know, he has done so well on earth!!!” Keyshia, 40, wrote a photo of them dancing on Instagram on Tuesday.
The R&B artist continued, “As we were growing up, he made sure (even if he was not my biological father) to maintain a stable foundation and roof over all of us!!!” Keyshia was adopted by Leon and his wife Dr. Yvonne Cole at the age of two. The “Love” singer finished writing, “He is the best example of love.
He has been married to my mother Yvonne Cole for 51 years. He is really the most loving person I know. He will miss it very much! I hate that this has happened. Now!!! And I have lost two beautiful souls in a few months now.”
