Fans of Antonio Brown and Keyshia Cole had no idea that the pair were seeing each other until their recent public breakup on social media.
Apparently, the “Let It Go” singer reached out to the wide receiver first, and then the pair started dating in private. They had collaborated on the song “Don’t Leave,” a single on his recently released album, “Paradigm.”
Their private affair became public recently when Brown discussed the singer on Instagram, saying: “You Ain’t Pimpin Until You Hit An RnB Diva. #FreeAgent #KeepPimpin.”
Naturally, Cole was offended by the statement and responded.
“It was a little harsh,” Cole said on Instagram Live. “Maybe he doesn’t know that it was a little harsh for him to say that. Even me speaking to him, he was like, ‘Do you want me to change the caption?’ And I was like no, I don’t want you to change the caption.”

Cole apparently posted then deleted another message talking about Brown.
“Yea I was big trippin..smh I see it now. I have a 12-year-old. Like that type disrespect for what.. Nothing is worth that level of disrespect, especially when u don’t deserve it. Had so much love, respect and admiration fa you. Guess that wasn’t mutual.”
She has also apologized to Brown.

The former NFL star, on the other hand, was far less forgiving saying on Instagram Live:
“I’m a player man.” “We don’t want you Keyshia…I don’t go back. I go forward.”

Whatever that was going on between the two appears to be over now and Brown, at least, wants no part of Cole moving forward.
