The internet lost its shit this week when a picture surfaced of Kyrie Irving’s R&B artist girlfriend, Kehalni, in bed with a dude named Partynextdoor–who the internet mocked as a ‘Soundcloud artist.’
Thousands of people came to the NBA nice guy’s defense, and rightfully so, publicizing your infidelity with a MySpace artist is as cold as cold gets.
The internet eased up on the 20-year-old Kehlani when she posted a picture to her Instagram from her hospital bed after she presumably tried to commit suicide.
Kehlani muddied the waters even more by claiming that the whole thing was a misunderstanding and she and Kyrie weren’t even dating at the time she slapped skins with PartyNextDoor.
“I am severely utterly in love with my first love,” she wrote. “Went thru a bad breakup and ended up easing into a relationship with a man who was one of my bestfriend [Irving]. Tho we realized we both weren’t exactly at a time where we were prepared to do so. … No I’m not a CHEATER, a THOT, im a BELIEVER IN FOLLOWING YOUR HEART and not LYING TO YOURSELF.”
Oft-troubled Chris Brown, whose history indicates that he does not shy away from controversy, took to Twitter to blast Kehlani for faking an attempted suicide to swing the public perception.
