Unfortunately, Frankie Lons, Keyshia Cole’s mom passed away. Frankie was part of Keyshia’s TV reality show “Keyshia Cole: The Way It is.” The reality show aired back in 2006. From that point on we fell in love with Frankie’s charismatic personality.
Frankie’s allegedly has died from a drug overdose
We received the sad news via Essence and TMZ, Frankie’s son Sam spoke about his mom’s untimely death. It was just last year, Frankie checked into a rehab center. It is public knowledge that Frankie has suffered from drug addiction over the years.
In fact, Frankie has been in and out of her addiction for 30 years. During an episode of “Keyshia Cole My New Life”, a TV reality show which aired in 2019, Frankie predicted she may not be around long. Here are her very heartbreaking words to Keysha,
“One day chicken the next day feathers. If I die today you’re going to move on and you’ve got to make it. You’ve got to live for Keyshia,” Lons replied. “You have to live for you and your family not nobody else. You don’t have to do nothin’ but die and pay taxes, but you have to move on if anything happens to me. At the end of the day you’ll see me later. Up there.”
She added, “I’m a be always where you can find me. Even when God calls me. A mother’s love will always protect you.”
So far, we have limited information about what happened to Frankie. But for now, we share this very unfortunate news. And, we send our heartfelt condolences to Keyshia and her family.
