Did Overdose Become Keyshia Cole’s Mom Frankie’s Cause of Death?
Although there is no official report about Keyshia Cole’s mom Frankie’s cause of death at this time, Frankie Lons probably died from health problems she had due to her struggle with drug addiction.
A while ago, Keyshia Cole was proud of her mother Francine “Frankie” Lons after she checked herself into a rehab facility and we all felt happy for the family too but bad news came.
Over the years, the 38-year-old R&B crooner has witnessed her mother struggle with drug addiction. On Sunday, Cole took to Instagram and made a post dedicated to Lons, 59, explaining how she’d be there for her mother despite her battle with substance abuse.
“Do you believe in the power of love? What about lack thereof? 50/50 There’s strength in knowing there’s something or someone you can always lean back on,” the “Heaven Sent” singer wrote. “Someone to catch u when u fall. I’ve been being strong for you, hoping I’ll get a chance to feel that feeling from you.”
Keyshia Cole’s Mom Frankie Lons Lawsuit Story; What Happened?
On 9/12/2013 TMZ wrote “Celebrity Rehab” grad Frankie Lons got hammered at an L.A. hotel by a falling sign, according to the lawsuit she just filed.
TMZ has learned singer Keyshia Cole’s mom filed the lawsuit today against Le Parc Suite Hotel for the alleged violent run-in with the sign back in April.
In the suit, Frankie says she was walking out of the hotel … just minding her own business … and when she pulled the door to exit the lobby “a heavy ‘EXIT’ sign that was hanging loosely” fell and landed on her head.
Frankie claims she suffered severe and permanent injuries though the lawsuit doesn’t specify what she hurt. Frankie and her attorney Michael Marzban are seeking damages for medical expenses, loss of earnings — as well as a little something for her “pain and suffering.”
