“Loyal” singer Chris Brown is famous for his “Twitter fingers,” and he put them to work when he slammed R&B singer Kehlani after she attempted suicide Tuesday. Brown sided with Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving, who Kehlani supposedly cheated on with her ex-boyfriend, PartyNextDoor.
“Girls be mad at a n---- for f---ing around wit bitches but her DMs got more names then the Declaration of Independence. #YEAHIMTHROWINGSHADE,” he wrote to his 15.8 million followers. “They look like they have stank sex!”
Though that tweet seemed like it could be aimed at anyone, Brown got specific in his following message. “There is no attempting suicide,” Brown wrote. “Stop flexing for the gram. Doing s--- for sympathy so them comments under your pics don't look so bad.” He then added the hasthag, “KYRIEMVP,” which solidified his tweets were about Kehlani, 20, and Irving, 24.
If that wasn’t enough, Brown took another hit at Kehlani, writing that she wouldn’t get to watch NBA games at the basketball court anymore. “OK IM DONE. Guess she gone have to watch the games from a real ‘box’ now. ‘THE TELEVISION’ #OHB ‘OUTTA HERE BIH’”
Kehlani revealed she attempted suicide in an Instagram post Tuesday, which has now been deleted. “Today, I wanted to leave this earth. Being completely selfish for once. Never thought I’d get to such a low point,” the Grammy Award-nominated singer said.
After she left the hospital, where she was temporarily placed on a psychiatric hold, she updated her fans in another Instagram post. “Thank you for the love,” she captioned a photo of a flower. “Everyone's fighting things people know nothing about. Healthy, home, and with people who love me. Thank you for all [the] support. All God. Will be taking space.” Like her other messages, the post was ultimately scrubbed from her verified Instagram account.
