This is heartbreaking.
R&B singer Kehlani was hospitalized last night for an apparent suicide attempt. The news broke just hours after people began slut-shaming the You Should Be Here songstress for a photo PARTYNEXTDOOR posted earlier in the day that many believed showed the two in bed together.
Kehlani reactivated her Instagram yesterday to post the following since-deleted picture of her arm with an IV in it. “Today I wanted to leave this earth. Being completely selfish for once,” she wrote in the caption. “God saved me for a reason, and for that… I must be grateful..”
Kehlani then posted (and deleted) another Instagram, this time of PARTYNEXTDOOR at her bedside. “Thank you for saving my life,” she wrote in the caption.
Kehlani addressed the cheating rumors that took over the Internet yesterday after PND posted (and deleted) an Instagram many think was of him in bed with Kehlani. People jumped to the conclusion that the post meant Kehlani had cheated on Kyrie Irving with PND—you can read more about that here, but Kehlani put these rumors to rest with the following:
“And since you’re begging for the truth on my love life: I am severely utterly in love with my first love,” Kehlani wrote. “Went thru a bad breakup and ended up easing into a relationship with a man who was one of my bestfriend.”
Our hearts go out to Kehlani while she recovers. We’ll update this post as more details emerge.
The Internet, especially social media, is a scary place, friends. Be kind always.
