Keyshia Cole Sued Over Fight at Birdman’s Condo

Woman claims singer scratched and punched her and caused permanent damage to her finger.

Published October 15, 2014

A woman is suing Keyshia Cole for allegedly attacking her in Birdman’s condo last month. Sabrina Mercidel filed legal documents against Cole accusing the 32-year-old mother of punching her in the face, scratching, hair pulling, permanently damaging her finger, and more, TMZ reports.

Apparently, Mercidel was in Birdman’s West Hollywood, Calif., penthouse when Cole was let into the building by a security guard. Cole and the Cash Money Records co-founder had reportedly been dating leading up to the altercation. It is unclear if they broke up.

In her documents, Mercidel refers to Birdman as “a friend” that she was visiting. The two weren’t involved in anything sexual, sources say. 

Cole was arrested for misdemeanor battery. Rumor has it that Birdman tried to make things up to her with a large cash gift (that she gave to her son).

Regarding Mercidel, a judge has since granted her restraining order against the “She” singer. Cole must stay at least 100 yards away, and is barred from having any contact with her. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
