Keyshia Cole’s mother, Frankie Lons, passed away Sunday from an apparent drug overdose on her birthday, as reported by her family. She was 61.
The news of Lons death was first announced by Cole’s younger sister Elite Noel on Instagram Stories.
“Worse pain ever….to see my mama in a body bag on her birthday! My heart so f–kin broke.”
Lons’ long-fought battle with addiction was often seen and discussed on Cole’s various reality TV shows where her down-to-earth personality became a fan favorite, and she “earned her own spin-off series entitled, Frankie & Neffe, alongside Cole’s sister Neffeteria Pugh.”
Keyshia Cole has yet to comment on her mother’s death.
We extend our comforting thoughts and prayers to Frankie’s family, friends, and all who loved her.
