MTO News is sad to report that Frankie, mother to R&B singer Keyshia Cole has passed away. Keyshia Cole’s sister Elite Noel announces the passing of their mother Frankie. Our immediate thoughts and prayers are with the family as they mourn this loss.
Keyshia’s mother Frankie lived a very hard life. She had Keyshia when she was just a teenager, and Frankie soon after began using drugs.
Frankie battled drug addiction for most of her life, and never truly beat it.
10 years ago she got a new lease on life, however, when she starred alongside Keyshia on her reality show My Life. MTO News confirmed Frankie became a reality star with millions of fans.
But despite her increased popularity, Frankie never really was able to completely get off of drugs.
MTO News confirmed that in recent months her health began to fail, after years of abuse. And it appeares that her body finally gave out.
Here’s a video of Keyshia and Frankie – from their latest BET reality show:
