Last night, while talking to a record label executive about another matter, the exec casually mentioned that R&B singer Keyshia Cole was back home in Atlanta after being chased out of her mini mansion by a stalker in 2009.
The exec went on to say that Cole abandoned her beloved home for the safety of the west coast to get away from her determined super Stan, who was eventually caught with a large cache of weapons and sent to prison.
“She’s back in Atlanta checking on her house because he can’t bother her any more,” the executive told me.
Keyshia considered putting her custom built 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath Alpharetta home on the market in 2009 after a stranger followed her home one night. “I own a gun – a Glock… and I called the police and told them I’d kill him and that I prefer not to,” said Keyshia in a cover story for the June 2009 issue of KING magazine.
Keyshia paid $827,000 in June 2006 for the 5,447 square foot home located in a posh subdivision in Johns Creek. But the depressed housing market sparked by the failing economy sent home prices plummeting in her neighborhood. Homes on Keyshia’s street are now selling in the low to mid 500K range.
