Chatting with The Breakfast Club Wednesday morning, Cole opened up about her relationship with estranged husband Daniel “Boobie” Gibson as well as celebrity couples she admires (hint: Jay and Bey make the cut) and new view on relationships. According to the vocalist, the guy she ultimately ends up with will be someone she can truly call a friend as well as a lover.
“Whoever the guy is that I’m going to end up with forever, I want him to be my best friend,” said Cole, who named two well-known couples that personify what she’s looking for. “Like Bey and Jay, I see him like that’s his homie at the end of the day. Tip and Tiny, that’s his homie. Whatever they’re going through, they’re friends and I think that ultimately matters and that’s really what I pray for and what I want now.”
As for her marriage, Cole confessed that her union with Gibson suffered after he admitted to cheating on her three times during their relationship. The couple’s marriage produced their 4-year-old son, Daniel Gibson Jr.
“[After the third time] it had to stop,” Cole shared. “It’s like, ‘Okay, you’re not learning and I don’t think you want to.'”
Although infidelity is a hard pill to swallow, Cole mentioned that she wishes Gibson nothing but the best regarding his future.
“Recently I told him I hope you really find that woman and you be good to her,” she said.
