Keyshia Called Illiterate By Judge, Loses Promoter Suit

Keyshia Cole had a rough day in court this week. Not only did she lose her case, stemming from a no-show at a planned appearance, but was called near ‘illiterate’ by the judge presiding over the case ! According to New Jersey sources, Cole was in court to face a promoter who sued her for failing to appear at an event promoted in 2006. While the man won his case, which included damages amounting to a near $160k, drama in the courtroom outweighed the suit as Cole seemed to have trouble testifying and reading a document before the judge. “Cole appeared so reluctant to read certain documents while testifying, that it appears at times that she was not literate,” the judge issued in a written opinion obtained by TMZ. What is somewhat amusing however, is that Cole read a set of documents she thought would save cash with comprehension. “Eventually, the judge realized Cole was literate — when Cole managed to read documents that she thought helped her case,” reports TMZ. Cole recently gave birth to her first child with athlete Daniel Gibson. The couple is engaged with plans to wed in the future.
