Keyshia Cole Served Papers For Attacking Cash Money Employee; Talks Split From Ex-Husband

Last month, Keyshia Cole made headlines after she was arrested for assaulting Cash Money Records employee, Sabrina Mercadel, during a late night visit to the L.A. home of the label's CEO, Birdman.

Now, according to TMZ, Mercadel has filed legal papers against Cole for the assault, claiming she punched her in her face, threw objects at her, and scratched her with her nails. She also alleges that both her neck and back were injured following the incident, and that one of her fingers may be damaged for good. In addition, Mercadel says she was attacked after "visiting a friend" and that the two were not intimate.

Mercadel also asked the judge for a restraining order, which was granted, forcing Cole to stay 100 yards away.

In related news, Cole conveyed her sympathy for her ex, Daniel Gibson, during a recent interview on BET's 106 & Park. Speaking about Daniel telling Necole Bitchie he was depressed after losing his wife and son, the singer said:

“As far as his depression is concerned, I think as a friend, he has to understand, as well, that things that bring you to that point of being depressed or losing something that matters to you more than anything,” she said on 106 & Park, “you can’t repeat the same thing that got you there in the first place.”
