Remember a couple weeks ago when Keyshia Cole had been arrested for assaulting a woman she suspected on messing around with her rumored boyfriend and Cash Money Records owners, Birdman? Well, the assault case is now coming back to haunt the singer.
A restraining order has been ordered on behalf of the woman, Sabrina Mercadel, who Cole attacked back in September.
Sabrina Mercadel filed court docs accusing Cole of punching her in the face, slashing her with fingernails and throwing objects at her. Mercadel says her neck and back were hurt — and her finger was so badly damaged … it might be useless for good.
TMZ broke the story … sources say Cole went nuclear when she found Mercadel at an early morning party in the penthouse of Cash Money CEO Birdman — Cole’s rumored bf at the time. For her part, Mercadel says in the docs she was just “visiting a friend.” Sources at the party tell us there was no banging going down.
Mercadel filed paperwork recently to request a restraining order against the singer, which was later granted.
Under it’s terms, Cole is now required to stay at least 100 yards away. The restraining order also prohibit the singer from making any contact with Mercadel.
