Keyshia Cole’s adoptive dad, Leon Cole, has died after he was hospitalized earlier this month with COVID-19 complications.

“He’s the entire reason my last name is COLE, The only father I knew, he did such a great job here on earth!!!!!” Keyshia, 40, wrote on Instagram Tuesday alongside a photo of them dancing.

The R&B artist continued, “He made sure (Even tho he wasn’t my biological father) to keep a stable foundation and roof over all of our heads during our upbringing!!!”

Keyshia was adopted by Leon and his wife Dr. Yvonne Cole when she was two years old.

The “Love” singer finished writing, “He was the greatest example of love, 51 years of marriage to my mother Yvonne Cole. Seriously the most loving guy I’ve ever known. And he’s gonna be missed so much! I hate that this has happened !!! And that I’ve now lost two beautiful souls within a few months from each other.”

Yvonne also shared the news of her husband’s death on Facebook Saturday.

“With a heart of sadness and sincere condolences, we solicit your prayers for Dr. Yvonne Cole and the Cole family in the passing of Mr. Leon Cole, Jr.” her statement read, alongside a photo of Leon and herself hugging.

She added, “You are welcome to leave your prayers and any heartwarming messages as they deal with the passing of Mr. Leon Cole Jr, due to COVID-19 complications. We appreciate the support for our family from around the world.”

Keyshia sadly lost her birth mother Frankie Lons from an overdose on her 61st birthday in July after a decades-long battle with addiction.

Lons had been on a “long, hard-fought journey to sobriety” and memorably marked 60 days clean in March 2020, TMZ reported at the time.

“the love for all your children was definitely felt,” she wrote after she died on Instagram. “When u said all you want is to have ALL OF YOUR CHILDREN IN ONE PLACE, AT ONE TIME meant the most to you, And I’m completely down to do that for you. Even through our differences …. WE LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! Frank da bank!”
