Keyshia Cole and her estranged husband, Daniel "Boobie" Gibson, stand as two of the newest additions to the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood cast, and now that they are separated, the two are moving forward with dating other people.
Gibson, however, seems to be getting a head start, as he's linked up with his childhood friend Brooke Valentine, and just recently broke the news to the "I Remember" singer, going as far as to ask her for advice on how he should approach their fresh romance.
While out on a shopping trip for their son, Keyshia and Boobie started talking about Boobie's new relationship with fellow cast member Brooke Valentine.
"It's a situation where I've been trying to be real patient with everything," he told her, referring to his newfound romance. "It's like, 'Do you risk y'all friendship for trying to be in a relationship?"
"Sometimes, you just have to take it slow, you know?" Keyshia replied.
The former NBA star and aspiring rapper then went into an explanation about wanting to "just jump" into things with the "Girlfight" singer, telling his ex, "I just want something real" — words that caused her facial expression to distort, a bit. Things took a turn, however, when she asked for the woman in question's name, and once he hesitantly revealed it was Brooke, the tone seemed to shift.
