The husband of singer Keyshia Cole, NBA player Daniel Gibson, has been arrested over an alleged altercation at a nightclub earlier this month.
According to TMZ, Gibson was booked on the charge of second degree battery on Monday in New Orleans and later released on bond. Police say a male victim is accusing Gibson of breaking his jaw after a club fight that started as a verbal argument.
The basketball star issued a statement to TMZ after the news broke, saying it was "unfortunate" to see others taking advantage of "people who work hard for what they have achieved." He says he considers himself a role model for young men and he expects to be "fully vindicated" once "all the facts of the incident come out."
Gibson adds that the incident took place when he was out with his wife Keyshia at the Essence Music Festival. The two were married in 2011 and share a three-year-old son.
