R&B singer Kehlani has taken the world by a storm with her amazing vocals and her epic chart topping album, You Should Be Here. Nominated for a Grammy this year, Kehlani seemed to be living every young, aspiring 20-year-old singers dream, with the perfect boyfriend to top things off.
Kehlani and Cleveland Cavaliers’ point guard Kyrie Irving surfaced the Internet months ago as one of pop cultures’ new celebrity couples. Kehlani & Kyrie “relationship goals” memes were just starting to surface with the two gushing over each other in Instagram posts and cute couple selfies.
They seemed like the perfect match, until missing that old thing sent the Internet into an uproar. Kehlani’s ex, and also OVO affiliate, PARTYNEXTDOOR was king Petty Wap yesterday morning for posting a “side girl” pic on Instagram.
In response, Kehlani has since deleted her Instagram… just to create another account, and according to the LA Times, had some interesting things to say regarding her and Kyrie’s relationship, in what looked like a perfect love story:
“Went through a bad breakup and ended up easing into a relationship with a man who was one of my bestfriend. Tho we realized we both weren’t exactly at a time where we were prepared to do so,” Kehlani said.
“No I’m not a CHEATER, a THOT, im a BELIEVER IN FOLLOWING YOUR HEART and not LYING TO YOURSELF. And in all aspects on everyone’s side, EVERYONE IS HAPPY AND HONEST AND MATURE. Social media is the … devil. Go outside and play, you have your own lives to live that don’t revolve around ‘celebrities’ or ‘socialites’ who are simply trying to live lives just like you.”
So is Kehlani in the wrong after all?
