Keyshia Cole revealed via Instagram on Thursday night that after 34 years, she has finally met her biological father.
Cole has always been candid about her troubled childhood; growing up in Oakland without a father and with a mother who struggled with drug addiction.
At the age of two, the songstress was adopted by family friends Leon and Yvonne Cole, and although she had a supportive family, still never knew her biological father. Until now.
“While in NYC I was overwhelmed with emotion, I explained while on stage at the Barclays, the situation I was faced with at that moment, which was, my father and I finding our way to each other, After 34 years. I knew at that time, a paternity test was in place, well the results are in, and this is my father,” she wrote on Instagram.
She continued, “His name is Virgil Hunter, and at this present time, I’m in Oakland spending time, getting to kno him! The story behind this is beyond me!!! God has his hands all in this!!! I’m so excited, So excited with taking this a day at a time!!!”
After doing some research, HipHollywood learned that Hunter is a famous boxing trainer who has worked with several professional athletes, including Andre Ward, Brandon Gonzales, Amir Khan, Michael Dallas and Arguello.
