Yesterday, social media had a field day with upcoming R&B artist Kehlani, who was outed by her former boyfriend, Drake associate PartyNextDoor, with an Instagram photo captioned that the R&B singer was once again back in his bed. Unfortunately for Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving, as recently as two weeks ago, he’d been claiming her as his girlfriend. Confused? Don’t know who any of these folks are? Read on.
In today’s news, Kehlani herself posted that she has been hospitalized following an apparent suicide attempt.
In a now-deleted Instagram post, the R&B singer shared an image of her in a hospital bed, along with the caption:
“I wanted to leave this earth. Being completely selfish for once. Never thought I’d get to such a low point. But.. Don’t believe the blogs you read .. No one was cheated on and I’m not a bad person… Everyone is hurt and everyone is in a place of misunderstanding.. But as of today, I had no single wish to see tomorrow.. But God saved me for a reason, and for that… I must be grateful.. Cuz I’m not in heaven right now for a reason… On that note.. Bye Instagram.”
She then deleted her Instagram account. This comes after Kehlani was accused of cheating on boyfriend Kyrie Irving on Monday with her ex, PARTYNEXTDOOR, who shared an image of her lying in his bed.
Nick Cannon, who works with Kehlani, rushed to her side to wish her a full recovery.

And before she deleted it, Kehlani had this to say about the alleged love triangle:
“[Not] always crying for attention or help, I got my mama number on speed dial for that shit,” she wrote in a since deleted Instagram post from her hospital room. “[Is] everyone that conditioned to celebrities not being REAL PEOPLE??? I’m fucking going thru it. Going thru 20 year old drama queen issues and figure since all the trials in my songs that have seemed to help so many others, sharing my truths must be continued. Yes I got thru some crazy ass shit. But YES I TELL THE STORY SO THAT HOPEFULLY SOMEONE ELSE WHO NEEDED TO HEAR IT, WOULD. Im tired of being called the “cry for help” cuz never in my life have I EVER asked a single soul to take pity on me no matter WHAT I’m going thru. And since you’re begging for the truth of on my love life: I am severely in love with my first love. Went thru a bad breakup and ended up easing into a relationship with a man who was one of my bestfriend. Tho we reallzed 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. And in all aspects on everyone’s side, EVERYONE IS HAPPY AND HONEST AND MATURE. Social media is the goddamn 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 like you.”
This was accompanied by a photo of…wait for it…PartyNextDoor by her bedside, head down, we assume because he was distraught y all that happened.
OK, read on for the original story.

Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving is not having a good Monday. The All-Star guard, a linchpin in the Cavs offense along with LeBron James and Kevin Love has been having a good year so far, as Cleveland recently clinched a playoff berth and is widely viewed as the only hope to derail the Golden State Warriors dynasty in the making.
Unfortunately, Irving, 24, became a trending topic on social media for all the wrong reasons. His girlfriend, upcoming R&B star Kehlani, 20, was outed by a Drake associate, singer/songwriter PartyNextDoor (or officially, Jahron Braithwaite) when he posted a pic of Kehlani’s hand in his bed recently. The two had been dating, but had broken up before she and Irving got together.
The world, or those who keep up with these things, realized it was Kehlani because of her distinctive hand tattoo.
If you have no idea who any of these folks are, carry on. But by midday, Irving was the leading trending topic on Twitter and among the top 10 trending topics on Facebook, and not because he’s averaging 20 points, 5 assists and shooting over 86% from the free thrown line while helping the Cavs to an Eastern Conference-leading 52 wins.
Party Next Door has since deleted the post. Kehlani has deleted her Instagram.
Irving’s post from today was this:
(For those curious, it’s a Hamsa symbol, believed to protect you from the evil or envious eye)
Although Internet scuttlebutt speculated that the couple had broken up already, just 2 weeks ago, Irving posted a pic of the couple, captioning it with “Good ole fashioned partners” and @ting Kehlani.
Somehow, Ayesha Curry, Steph Curry’s wife was dragged into it via Twitter as well, because, well, because Twitter, but mostly because of speculation that if her wholesome Christian image was ever tarnished by anything like this, Black Twitter would spontaneously combust.
twitter about to be in shambles if Steph and Ayesha Curry ever divorce

Sadly for fans of love, Kehlani and Irving had been professing their love across social media and on their respective accounts for some time.
Dang, Kyrie. We hope this all works out somehow.
A few examples of Black Twitter’s take on the situation:
