Keyshia Cole’s Instagram Drama, Reactivation Sparks Firestorm Over Hunxho’s Steamy Shots with Gloss Up

Keyshia Cole‘s Instagram hiatus was short-lived, but the drama it stirred certainly wasn’t. The R&B star recently made waves by deactivating and then reactivating her account, all to address the sizzling controversy surrounding her boyfriend, Hunxho, and Gloss Up’s latest collaboration.

Earlier today, Gloss Up dropped the music video for their joint track “Come Here,” sending fans into a frenzy. But while the audience was grooving to the beat, Keyshia Cole was feeling anything but love. The video showcased Gloss Up and Hunxho in intimate scenes, from twerking to bathtub hangs, raising eyebrows especially since Cole and Hunxho only recently went public with their relationship.

In a swift social media move, Cole briefly disappeared from Instagram, prompting speculation. But Gloss Up’s subsequent posts, featuring cozy shots with Hunxho and suggestive captions, sparked Cole’s reactivation and a fiery clapback.

“Him playing the ‘sneaky link’ while I’m here thinking marriage? That’s just low,” Cole exclaimed, punctuating her response with laughter. Despite her disappointment, she extended well wishes to Gloss Up’s project, albeit with a hint of sarcasm.

The timeline of the photos remains a point of contention, with Cole asserting they were taken pre-relationship. Yet, Gloss Up’s persistent taunting on social media, including retweets hinting at a prior connection with Hunxho, keeps the tension alive.

As the internet buzzes with opinions on Gloss Up’s video and Cole’s candid reaction, Hunxho himself has remained relatively silent, save for a cryptic tweet. The drama continues to unfold, leaving fans eager for more updates.
