Social media can really get celebrities down, and for someone as public as Keyshia Cole, the haters are usually on front street.

In what seemed like a random act of honesty, the singer wrote a long post on Instagram Saturday night explaining her current trials and tribulations and why she would never do drugs.

“Listen,” she starts off by saying. “Don’t judge ok!!! This is life!! And I’m thankful for it all!! The good the bad and the ugly!!! Failed marriage, bad choices in a few that promised me the world and said all the right things and did opposite. What can I say, it’s facts!!! I’m human! Yes I have issues that I deal with from my upbringing, y’all kno my life!!! Shit I’ve had how many reality shows… displaying the truth!!! ?”

Adding, “I’ve never fronted on my mother, neither one! Never disowned my mother because of drugs. (She’s the reason I would NEVER even try Drugs) You all have seen me grow, I’ve created a wonderful life for my child.”

The 34-year-old has publicly dated a few famous men and had public family issues, but she’s never been accused of doing drugs… by the media at least. So we’re not exactly sure where this accusation comes from. But she’s made it quite clear why drug usage is a path she never plans to take.

Currently the Oakland-bred singer is separated from her husband, former NBA player Daniel “Booby” Gibson. They have a six-year-old son together. Cole was also recently linked to rapper, Bow Wow, but the pair allegedly broke off whatever they had going on— as noted by a series of cryptic tweets and Instagram posts.

On Thursday Cole shared a desire to have someone to confide in, saying on Twitter, “Wish I had someone to confide in, But God has his way of showing you, who’s for you.”

From the look of social media, Cole seems a bit heartbroken, but luckily the love of her family and fans is always present.

The Grammy-nominated artist is currently performing and preparing for her seventh studio album, “It Is What It Is”.
