Singer and TV personality Keyshia Cole, best known for “Keyshia Cole: All In,” took to Instagram to share a slideshow with her son, DJ.


The first image portrayed Keyshia wearing a black shirt while side-hugging DJ, who wore a white shirt and a green and black plaid shirt on top.

They were sitting at a table ready to eat. In the second picture, Keyshia looked like if she wanted to give DJ a tight hug, but he was trying to escape from her.

The third photo showed both of them making a heart with their hands and smiling at the camera. 


Finally, the fourth pic portrayed DJ very excited about the food and Keyshia looking at him. Her followers shared their thoughts on the boy’s weight.


For the caption, the TV personality pointed out that she thought DJ was growing up too fast. She added that they were at one of her favorite places, Honey's Kettle Fried Chicken.



Even though the slideshow portrayed nothing but a lovely family, some people took to the comment section to share negative comments about DJ’s weight.

One of them was Instagram user @nubschick, who said that the boy should be on a diet before he developed diabetes.


@nia_t_love chimed in and said that she hoped the photo was just an ad as it was too much fatty food.

@victoriasgramxo pointed out that DJ looked fat while @jay_riches admitted that the boy would be fat if Keyshia didn’t get him involved in sports.



Keyshia and her ex-husband, Daniel “Booby” Gibson, welcomed DJ to the world in 2010.

They tied the knot the following year. Unfortunately, they split in 2014 and got divorced in 2017. They are devoted to co-parenting and raising DJ together.



In early-July, the reality star took to Instagram to share a picture of her herself wearing a skin-tight grey and brown outfit.

Even though her belly looked normal, several pregnancy rumors were surrounding the singer, so when she wrote “Preggo In My Fashion Nova Fit” in the caption.

Everyone thought Cole confirmed the news.


However, on July 6, the singer uploaded another photo where she surprised everybody by writing in the caption that she “kinda apologize” for saying that she was pregnant because it was not true.

Cole added that people should stop body-shaming her by saying that she is pregnant every other day because it hurts her feelings.

She deleted the “pregnant” photo soon after that.
