Last week, fans of Oakland songstress Keyshia Cole were thrilled when she took to Instagram to announce a pregnancy. It appears, however, that the former Love & Hip Hop cast member was just “trolling” with the post, and isn’t actually with child.
The original post featured the “Love” singer rocking a Fashion Nova ‘fit while promoting the brand with the caption, “#PreggoInMyFashionNovaFit #CongradulationsAreInOrder @fashionnova.”

The following day, Cole posted a photo of herself laughing alongside a caption apologizing for misleading fans. She also asked them to squash the pregnancy rumors that have surrounded her name since her split from ex-husband, Daniel Gibson.
“I KINDA APOLOGIZE for #TROLLING yesterday, telling y’all I was ##Preggo !!!! Buuuuuuut y’all need to stop body shamming me and sayin I’m PREGNANAT EVERY OTHER DAY !!!! Like seriously, it hurts my feelings HER @fashionnova thought it was sweet that you all were excited about the news tho @NikoKhale.”
