Hip-Hop Rumors: Birdman’s Beatdown Friend Files Restraining Order On Keyshia Cole!


When it comes to catching fades, it sounds like Keyshia Cole ain’t the one to play with.

Last month Cole was arrested for assaulting Sabrina Mercadel, when she found her inside of Birdman’s condo. Cole went ballistic throwing s*** and accusing Mercadel of being with “her man.” Mercadel maintains that she and the Cash Money CEO are strictly friends and she was just stopping by.

Now TMZ is reporting that Mercadel went and got the law involved, filing a restraining order against Cole.

“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 requested, and was granted, a restraining order — which requires Cole to stay 100 yards away and prohibits any contact.”

We knew Cole was hood but damn! We can smell a lawsuit coming soon…
