Keyshia Cole Facing $4.6 Million Lawsuit From The Woman Assaulted In Birdman's Home
(AllHipHop News) Keyshia Cole's choice to sign-up for Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood might be a good financial decision.
That's because TMZreports the R&B vocalist is facing an expensive lawsuit.
Sabrina Mercadel is suing Cole for a total of $4,550,000.
The legal dispute stems from the Point of No Return album creator allegedly attacking Mercadel in 2014.
Keyshia was dating Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan "Birdman" Williams at the time.
After finding Mercadel at Birdman's Los Angeles condo, Cole apparently assaulted the woman.
The singer accused Mercadel of sleeping with Birdman, but she has insisted her relationship with the music executive was "strictly plutonic."
A lawsuit concerning the incident first came to light in November 2014, but the alleged victim has now presented the full damages she is seeking in the case.
The suit includes:
- $1.5 million for pain and suffering
- $500,000 for emotional distress
- $2 million for loss of use of body part
- $200,000 for future medical expenses
- $50,000 for loss of earnings
- $300,000 for future loss of earnings
Cole was not prosecuted for the condo attack.
Viewers can catch the former star of Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is and Keyshia & Daniel: Family First on season 4 of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood beginning on June 24.
