The "Radio Killah," who produced Bey's mega-hit "Single Ladies," has built a strong relationship with the singer over the years. So, when it came to Cole's Twitter attack, he chose sides.
"Right now because of what happened, I can't [work with her]," Dream told Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club Wednesday (April 2). "I think she would respect why I can't. That's my family."
Cole responded via Twitter: "Dream not writing any songs for me is fine…Im on my 6th album…He's only wrote 1 song on 1 of my albums, which i did love, God Bless."
At this point, Cole is familiar with receiving Beyoncé-related backlash. In February, she was slammed for singling out Michelle Williams as "f-----n the groove up" during the mini-Destiny's Child reunion at the Super Bowl halftime show.
Her relationship with The-Dream dates back to him writing the song "Hey Sexy" for her latest album, Woman to Woman. Their chemistry in the studio was the focus of an episode on Cole's BET reality show Keyshia & Daniel: Family First.
