Beyonce BFF The-Dream Denies Keyshia Cole For 'Family'

Dream tells Power 105 he'll no longer write for Cole after the R&B singer has been openly critical of Bey.

It's no secret that The-Dream has a special relationship with Beyoncé. Aside from writing one of the R&B pop diva's biggest hits to date ("Single Ladies"), the two hang out and collaborate quite often. So when asked if he would get in the studio with Keyshia Cole, who has recently called out Bey, The-Dream was clear and calculated with his answer.

"Right now because of what happened, I can't. I think she would respect why I can't. That's my family," he said on Wednesday when he appeared on Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" radio show in New York.

Keyshia didn't seem too bothered by the IV Play singer's trepidation. "Dream not writing any songs for me is fine... Im on my 6th album... He's only wrote 1 song on 1 of my albums, which i did love, God Bless," she messaged on Twitter yesterday.

After Beyoncé dropped her "Bow Down/ I Been On" single in March, the usually outspoken Cole took to Twitter to combat Bey's "Bow down bitches" lyric. "Can't stand when people all self righteous when it's convenient it makes them look good. Lmao! But can still talk sh-- when convenient 2 FOH," she wrote. "First 'Women need to Stick together' now bitches better Bow. Smh. But it's all G! Chicks stay shooting the sh--. .."

The-Dream and Keyshia collaborated on "Hey Sexy" a track off of her most recent album Woman to Woman. Last year, the singer/songwriter appeared on Cole's BET reality series "Keyshia & Daniel: Family First." In the episode, Cole's husband, NBA player Daniel "Boobie" Gibson grew jealous of Keyshia and The-Dream's working relationship, though she eventually reassured him that he had nothing to worry about.

"I think anyone who is commenting on where I stand should check ure friends, or Be checked by their friends. Cause I only know one Code," Dream responded Wednesday over Twitter after writing that he has love for Keyshia Cole.
