After announcing that he won’t be performing for a “long time” during his performance at The Meadows Music & Arts Festival in Queens, New York on Sunday.
It now looks Cole’s Twitter account was hacked, as his timeline was filled with unusual claims about Kim K making up the “robbery” for publicity.
Beyond the tweet about Kim K’s recent robbery, Cole’s tweets also included him asking artists to do collaborations, something Cole has never done in the past, at least not publicaly.
Before, these series of unusual tweets, Cole’s last tweet was back in March. Nevertheless, the unusual tweets have since been deleted, leaving fans to think he was hacked and simply wants to move on without making a statement.
