Because she’s so raw and real, Keyshia has developed a strong fan base that continues to root for her, because they know that her success wasn’t easy. Recently, Keyshia took to Instagram to share her frustration of innocent children being killed at the hands of trusted family members. Stating that she saw a lot as a child, Keyshia has a message for mothers that she urged her followers to share.
Keyshia Cole Urges Mothers To Be More Careful With Their Children:
On her Instagram page, Keyshia Cole shared a meme of a little girl crying. The meme urged mothers to stop leaving their daughters with boyfriends whom they barely knew. Additionally, the meme pointed out that when a child is abused, the wounds never heal and she captioned the photo with the following message:

While Keyshia didn’t mention any children by name, her post seems to speak about the recent death of 3 year-old Bella Edwards. Bella Edwards lived in an apartment in Queens, New York with her mother, Shamika Gonzalez, her baby brother Logan, and her mother’s boyfriend, Mark Jenkins. On Monday (April 2, 2018), Gonzalez left to run an errand and she left her children in the hands of Jenkins. When Gonzalez returned home, Bella was found unresponsive in her room. CPR was administered and the paramedics were called. Tragically, Bella died and Jenkins was arrested for her murder. Court details revealed that Jenkins reportedly punched Bella in her abdomen and investigators believe she bled to death. Expressing regret for not being there, Gonzalez took to Facebook to apologize to her daughter, Bella. On Facebook, Gonzalez wrote the following:
“Bella i’m so sorry I wasn’t their to protect you. This feels like a bad dream I cant wake up from. You was loved by everyone and shared so many Funny memories. I’m going to miss all the times you kissed and hugged me everyday and miss hearing you say Hi Loggy I’m your big sister. Please watch over me, Logan and the family. We all love you so much!”
