Keyshia Cole was recently sued by an event promoter in New Jersey who claims the R&B songstress blew off an appearance back in 2006 after she was paid $15 grand up front. Keyshia ultimately lost the case, and the judge called Keyshia’s testimony “nonsensical” and accused her of being “illiterate!”

The judge not only ruled against Cole, but she blasted the singer in her written opinion, saying Cole’s testimony was “confused and at times nonsensical.” But the judge’s biggest shot: Cole appeared so reluctant to read certain documents while testifying, “that it appears at times that she was not literate.” Eventually, the judge realized Cole was literate — when Cole managed to read documents that she thought helped her case.


Keyshia was ordered to pay $160,000 in damages.

We’re kind mad the judge dissed Keyshia like that by calling her illiterate. Was that really called for?
