Keyshia Cole is hit with a big lawsuit after accusing a woman for being with her man. According to TMZ, the singer flew into a rage when she thought that a woman named Sabrina Mercadel was with her then-boyfriend Birdman. Mercadel is suing Cole for $4 million for physical and emotional damages.
Mercadel accuses that Cole physically assaulted her when she found her in Birdman's Los Angeles home. She is seeking $1.5 million for her pain and suffering, $500k for emotional distress, $2 million for loss of use of a body part and hundreds of thousands in medical expenses and future loss of earnings.
Mercadel maintains that her relationship with the Cash Money mogul was platonic. Sources tell TMZ that she is a longtime friend and Cash Money employee. But Cole apparently thought Mercadel was a prostitute when she found her in Birdman's homein the wee hours of the morning. She allegedly stated, according to the police report, "Who the f*** are you? What are you doin' with my man?"
The victim initially sued Birdman's building as well but dropped that lawsuit.
Birdman is currently dating Toni Braxton.
