R&B star Keyshia Cole has separated from her basketball player husband Daniel Gibson after less than three years of marriage.

The You've Changed singer, 32, confirmed the news during a New York radio interview on Thursday morning (20Mar14), when she was asked about rumours suggesting the pair had split.

She simply told the Power 105.1 hosts, "We co-parent... He's a great father... We good (sic)."

Cole recently reunited with former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Gibson, aka Boobie, to celebrate their son Daniel Jr.'s fourth birthday.

Speculation about the status of the couple's relationship first surfaced online earlier this year (14) after Cole took to her Twitter and Instagram.com blogs to vent her apparent frustrations about her personal life.

One recent post read: "Don't fall in love with someone who says the right things... fall in love with someone who does the right thing."

They wed in May, 2011.
