Cole, who wasn't pleased with the show's line-up, went on a Twitter rant on Monday night--the same night as KMEL 106's Holiday House of Soul concert-- claiming she bailed on the show because the station contacted her last minute to tell her she'd be opening The Weeknd, instead of headlining the show herself.
Here's what she had to say:
"EVERY F**KING YEAR I do something major for my city! @KMEL has the nerve to tell me at the last minute they want me to open for the weeknd."
"No disrespect to the weeknd. Why the hell would @106KMEL ask me to open for him in My home town! Where I give back! Where IM FROM! #NO"But KMEL tells TMZ, it was just a mere case of mis-communication, “We were surprised to see Keyshia Cole’s Tweets the night of our show ... as she was never scheduled to be the show’s final act."
KMEL added, "When we were notified a week before her performance that she planned to cancel, we immediately removed her name from all advertising and promotion and offered refunds to those fans who requested."
Since then, R&B singer Jeremiah has replaced Cole for the Weeknd show.
