Frankie also suggested that a photo of him could be retrieved as he owned a restaurant named Pal Joeys in San Jose. She said the guy that she used to date when she was a prostitute. She became attached because he tried, went to his grave trying to get her to stop doing prostitution.
Keyshia’s mom met the man, much older than her, and he would take her to his bar and talk to her to keep her off of the streets, but they were intimate.
As told by Frankie, the man told her she didn’t need to be out here, and then he used to come and get her. He asked her how much did her pimp want. And, he would give her the money to take to him and he would keep her all night and talk to her.
Frankie was told by other prostitutes she used to know that the man died of cirrhosis of the liver, so if he was indeed Keyshia’s father, that doesn’t provide much closure for the singer. Especially since Keyshia says there is someone else out here also claiming that he’s her father presently.
