Keyshia Cole's husband defends himself following battery arrest
R&B star Keyshia Cole's husband has spoken out about his arrest on Monday (29Jul13), insisting he did nothing but defend his wife at the Essence Music Festival earlier this month (Jul13).
Daniel 'Boobie' Gibson, who plays basketball for the Cleveland Cavaliers, turned himself in to police in New Orleans, Louisiana over allegations of assault and battery on Monday morning. He was released hours later, and now he has opened up to TMZ.com about the incident that led to all the drama.
He says he was just defending his wife's honour when he got into an altercation with a man at the Essence Music Festival, claiming the unnamed guy disrespected Cole in a "profane way".
He confronted the guy and claims his "safety was threatened" so he "needed to take action".
Gibson tells the website, "I have nothing to be ashamed of or hide."
