Keyshia Cole has been on cloud nine ever since finding her biological father. After searching all her life, the singer-songwriter who was understandably overcome with emotion, took to Instagram Friday (May 13) when she learned boxing trainer Virgil Hunter is her dad.
While in NYC I was overwhelmed with emotion, I explained while on stage at the Barclays, the situation I was faced with at that moment, which was, my father and I finding our way to each other, After 34 years. I knew at that time, a paternity test was in place, well the results are in, and this is my father!! His name is Virgil Hunter, and at this present time, I’m in Oakland spending time, getting to kno him! The story behind this is beyond me!!! God has his hands all in this!!! I’m so excited, So excited with taking this a day at a time!!!
Cole’s fans and supporters proceeded to congratulate both her and her father and wished them well as they begin getting to know one another. However, talk show host Maury Povich used Cole finding her dad as a way to promote his long standing daytime show.
“Keyshia Cole…you should have called MAURY years ago and we would have helped you find your father! Don’t wait 34 years like Keyshia, call 1-888-45MAURY for your free DNA Test!”
The shameless plug was featured on the 77- year-old’s Facebook page.

After several people called Maury petty and childish for inserting himself in the conversation, whoever runs the host’s social media page the issued a “We’re so happy for you, sorry it 34 years!”
Class act, ladies and gentlemen.
