Keyshia Cole is dating rapper Hunxho as of April 2024.

Keyshia and Hunxho were first spotted together just before April 7, 2024, coming out of Atlanta’s Opium Nightclub together and holding hands. The fan video was first shared on TikTok by Celebrity Tea House, although commenters were quick to note how “nonchalant” and “bored” Hunxho looks. At just 24 years old, Hunxho is an up-and-comer in the hip-hop scene.

His 2022 single, “Let’s Get It,” catapulted his rise to stardom, although in 2023, Hunxho was arrested at Atlanta’s LYFE ATL Nightclub for gun possession. Clearly, everything worked out since he’s now dating the “Princess of Hip-Hop Soul.” Keyshia and Hunxho confirmed the rumors on Twitter when she wrote, “@hunxho mine,” and he quoted the tweet with a heart emoji.

Some fans, however, speculate that their relationship is a PR move since Hunxho is on the up and up, while others are hoping the relationship blows up so that we get more killer tracks. But Keyshia isn't letting the hate get to her and is laughing it off as best she can. After 20+ years in the public eye, she’s a pro at how to handle the chatter, which brings us to a prior relationship rumor.

Before dating Hunxho, there were rumors Keyshia dated Antonio Brown.

In 2022, Keyshia and NFL player turned rapper Antonio Brown sparked dating rumors. They collaborated on a song for Antonio’s album, "Paradigm," but as they began talking about one another and sharing snaps, the world couldn’t help but speculate that there was romance between them. On Instagram, she even shared a pic of Antonio with the caption, “Missing him a lot,” although if they did have a relationship, it was short-lived.

Antonio shared a video of Keyshia dancing, but quickly deleted it, which led Keyshia to try to apologize publicly (although we don’t know what for). She later took her apology back and Antonio responded, calling himself a “playa.” In a video, he can be overheard saying, “We don’t want you Keyshia, stay off my d--k, you heard.”

While most of the evidence has been deleted, their short speculated fling has been well-documented by various media outlets, including Distractify, but it seems that Keyshia and Antonio could never make it work. Now that Keyshia is back in a relationship, we hope she and Hunxho have better luck!
