She skipped the media on the red carpet at tonight's 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards, but Keyshia Cole surprisingly strolled in to present an award as if she wasn't just locked up yesterday.
Deets and the pic inside...
Keyshia Cole made a surprise appearance at tonight's BET Hip Hop Awards at the Atlanta Civic Center. While she was definitely slated to appear, many (including us) figured she may not show her face after her battery charge and arrest last night over rumored boyfriend , Cash Money head honcho Birdman. Additionally, she's scheduled to perform in Detroit tonight as well. But some kind of way, Keyshia showed up and honored this particular commitment.
The "Trust" singer donned glitter pants and a matching crop top by Chanel, topped off with sparkly Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. And she hit the stage to present the Producer of the year Award.
TheYBF.com was on the scene for the red caret and the show, but Keyshia made sure to skip the media line beforehand.
Interestingly, Birdman did not perform, despite being scheduled to.
We're not sure how Keyshia's getting to her Detroit show on time, but maybe she and Birdman kissed and made up and she's using his jet?
Speaking of that shocking fight Keyshia got arrested for yesterday, where she allegedly beat up a woman she found inside Baby's penthouse, reports now state the victim is Cash Money employee!
TMZ states Sabrina Mercadel (pictured above) claims she was attacked by Keyshia, who walked into Birdman's home while Sabrina was exiting the bathroom. Sabrina says four other people were also inside the home at the time.
Sabrina says she has known Birdman "since she was young"...and nothing was going on between the two. But she did have to head to the ER after Keyshia scratched her up...and she's now on pain meds.
Could this all be a ploy for Keyshia to sell records? Her Point of No Return album drops October 7th...and there's been minimal buzz about it until now....
We reached out to both Sabrina Mercadel and Keyshia's rep and are waiting to hear back.
[UPDATE 11:07p ET] It looks like Keyshia hopped on somebody's jet to make it to Detroit on time. She just hit the stage at the Fox Theater....
