Keyshia Cole's Biological Mom Frankie Lons Dies After Battle With Addiction

Keyshia Cole‘s mother, Frankie Lons, has sadly passed away at the age of 61.

TMZ reports that Frankie died after her years-long battle with addiction while celebrating her birthday.

The site says that Frankie “overdosed at her Oakland home Sunday … the same day she was celebrating her born day, when she apparently took drugs while partying — relapsing on what we’re told was a long, hard-fought journey to sobriety.”

Sam, Keyshia‘s brother, added that the family “wants the world to remember Frankie as someone who loved her kids, and who wanted her children to be together … despite their turbulent history.”

Frankie appeared many times on Keyshia‘s reality TV shows and went on to star in her own spin-off, Frankie & Neffe, which focused on her and Keyshia‘s sister Neffeteria Pugh.

Earlier this year, Keyshia was set for a Versuz battle with Ashanti. Here’s the status of it right now…
