*’Are Y’all Married?’: Keyshia Cole Swarmed with Marriage Speculation After Fans Spot Her and Niko’s ‘Rings’
R&B singer Keyshia Cole was bombarded with a gang of questions from people who wondered if her and long-time boyfriend Niko Khalé tied the knot.
It was lastly reported that Cole was undergoing some “serious” life changes after professing that she was focused on self-growth. A few fans wondered if her self-seeking journey was due to an undisclosed breakup with Khalé, seeing as she deleted majority of her posts off Instagram, including photos of her and him.
However, Cole’s latest post seemingly squashed all of the breakup rumors surrounding her and the 24-year-old aspiring rapper, sparking a set of new ones.
The “You Complete Me” singer took to her Instagram feed on Monday afternoon with a picture of her and Khalé visiting the Dreamscape Virtual Reality World in Santa Monica, California, explaining in her post that they had an amazing experience.
“Don’t know what the heck my hand is doing, but I wanted to tell you guys about our experience at Dreamscape Virtual Reality World in Santa Monica Our favorite VR adventure was The Curse Of The Lost pearl,” she wrote.
Fans however focused more so on Cole and Khalé . They apparently noticed that the couple were both wearing rings on their wedding fingers.
“@keyshiacole You two are married ?”
“So happy you two are still going strong ! Engaged sis??”
“So are y’all married?!!! CauSe I spy rings gurrrrrl.”

Other fans pointed out the over-sized shirt Keyshia was wearing, claiming she was hiding a baby bump.
“Are u expecting ?? It looks like you were cupping/cradling your stomach...”
“Married and preggo! Hiding your beautiful baby bump with that shirt !”
“ I . . . see . . . Rings. AND ThickNess. AND a loose top! Congratulations on the baby & marriage! It’s simply noticeable.”
Cole, 37, and Khalé, 24, went public with their relationship in early 2018. However, the singer received backlash from folks who didn’t approve their age difference. She eventually addressed critics in a March 2018 Instagram post, saying, “I kno people have been very judgmental about our relationship but I gotta nurture what nurtures me.”
Her relationship with the aspiring artist follows after calling it quits with former Cleveland Cavaliers player Daniel ‘Booby’ Gibson, with whom she shares 8-year-old Daniel Gibson Jr. However, the pair’s divorce is still pending.
