The rocky relationship between Oakland-bred R&B singer Keyshia Cole and her mother, Frankie Lons, has hit major speed bumps throughout the years amid Frankie’s battle with drug addiction.

Fortunately, their connection has dramatically improved in recent years. But unfortunately, a recent relapse has interrupted Frankie’s road to recovery, as revealed in Keyshia’s recent Instagram post. In light of support for her mother during the trying time, she’s reflecting back to a simpler, healthier moment with her mom and sharing a message for all those who have loved ones fighting the same battle.

  1. Keyshia found the video from two-and-a-half years ago…

    For her, such memories are even tougher to reflect on considering Frankie’s current status.

    “Every time my mom relapse it breaks my heart more than it’s already been broken,” she wrote in her Instagram caption. “I’m hoping, if any of u are dealing with a family member who’s battling with drug addiction, that you, yourself are learning how to cope with the struggle of it all.”

  2. In the video, Frankie discussed how high-spirited she had remained amid her addiction recovery

    She’d even been going to church, and asked everyone to keep her in their prayers to stay on the right track. “I’m taking this a day at a time,” Frankie said in the clip. “As long as I have something to do and stay focused, I won’t have to worry about no triggers.”

    The hope now is that Frankie can soon return to this state of mind—mentally and physically—amid the troubling news.

    BET sends its love and support to Frankie and Keyshia as we keep them uplifted in prayer during this time. See Keyshia’s message of love and support to her mom and encouragement for others coping with a loved one’s addiction below.
