On Sunday, Coko took to Instagram to explain why she may have seemed a little uncomfortable during the first half of the battle.
She said, “Last night as I’m preparing for Verzuz, a lady was shot outside my hotel window. To see & hear the four shots, see her laying on the ground and all the blood was unbelievable!! Thennnn…I get to the venue and had a really bad anxiety attack! Literally crying & screaming.”
“Yeah y’all saw me looking uncomfortable & irritated during the first half but, if it wasn’t for my son @jayyemichael @ynottamiya & @mrljb I probably wouldn’t have been out there at all,” she continued. “Thank you for calming me down & understanding my mental. I love y’all to the fullest!! I always say most won’t care to understand but when you get those that do cherish them!!”
After she revealed what she witnessed, many fans admitted they were wrong to assume the reasons for her behavior and acknowledged, you never know when someone could be going through something.
Although Coko experienced a scary situation, she still showed up and showed out during the battle.
