Whoa… they are still married? Yep!
Keyshia Cole and her estranged husband Daniel “Booby” Gibson are in danger of having their divorce dismissed.
Despite them both moving on to new relationships, neither side have made any move to finally end the marriage.
The former couple tied the knot in 2011, separated in 2014 before an official divorce filing took place in September 2017.
Cole cited irreconcilable differences (after blasting him for cheating) and listed their separation as October 31, 2014. At the time, the "I Should Have Cheated" singer requested joint legal and physical custody of their 8-year-old son, Daniel Gibson Jr.
Unfortunately, the former Cleveland Cavaliers baller (who left the NBA to be a rapper 3 years ago) had other plans as he filed his own paperwork to request FULL custody of their son AND spousal support.
And now a judge is warning them to come to a resolution or he’s throwing the divorce petition out and they’ll remain married.
According to The Blast, court documents (dated January 10th) informed Keyshia and Booby to update the status of their case.
The presiding judge warned that if neither of them file the necessary court documents soon their case will be thrown out and they will remain legally married.
As soon as news hit the world wide web, Keyshia Cole stepped into TheShadeRoom to blast Gibson’s lawyer for the delay and made it clear that she’s not budging forward with any legal processes until her estranged husband takes his request for spousal support and full custody of their child off the table.
“I would love to move forward with the divorce, “Cole wrote. “His LAWYER needs to change his positioning in legal documents. I am not giving him full custody nor no damn spousal support! And I’ve asked him over and over to do so, the ball is in his court. No pun intended”
Since they’re separation, both have publicly moved on to new relationships as Cole has been dating 23-year-old aspiring rapper Niko Khale for over a year now.
Booby hooked up with 24-year-old Sinfony Rosales a few months back as well.
Although Cole and Gibson are in the midst of divorce drama, they’ve still managed to successfully co-parent their son DJ.

As Keyshia said, the ball is literally in Daniel's court. Let's see what he does with it...
