Rumor Control: Frankie Did Not Fail Urine Drug Test

There’s a vicious rumor going around the blogosphere that singer Keyshia Cole’s mom, Frankie Lons, 50, was arrested for failing a urine drug test. Well, I’m happy to report that the rumor is not true.

According to Frankie’s publicist, Cherry Banez, Frankie was arrested, but not because she failed a drug test. Frankie missed her probation visit due to the fact that she was undergoing treatment at Dr. Dårew’s Pasadena Rehab center in California.

Sandra! fyi – unfortunately, Frankie was in a catch 22 situation – she missed probation because she was at rehab at Dr. Drew’s Pasadena center. That’s what lead to the arrest, not drugs as published by mediatakeout.

Frankie is 50 years old and I am doing what I can to help her change her image into a sober woman who has made regrettable mistakes. As she approaches the next phase of her life with grandkids and her new found children, I hope she does succeed. Keep up the good work with your Medical Minutes — what I am trying to say is you have readers who may not get medical info in traditional sources, but through your blog, [they] can at least receive medical info while getting their entertainment as well!

Take care,

    And here I am under the impression that it is the job of the PR professional to paint clients in a better light.

    Shoulda just said “children”.

    And I sure hope Cherry has that press release ready to go for when and if Frankie do fall off the wagon.

    Hopefully it is pre-written and all she has to do is plug in the dates and hit send…If I was Frankie’s PR person I would…but DJM…

    KDub says:

    I used to want to be a PR person @AlBoy…but I would be throwing folks up under the bus left and right they do dumb shyt…example..

    “Yes my client Brett Farve sent those nekkid text pics to that woman and you know what? The media is quite right, she DO look JUST like his wife. But in the end, it is my job to say my client is innocent; even though I think he is guilty as sin. Nasty azz old yt man. Why is he still playing?”

    My press releases would get laughed at. Dayum media outlets would be confuzzled like “WHOSE side is this heffa ON?”

    Im confused as to why Frankie needs a PR… is she suppose to be a celebrity? And if i was looking for a PR to clean up my rep, people wouldn’t walk around calling her Cherry…

    And her name better be Cherry (like the fruit) and not Cherry (Sherry).
