R&B singer Kehlani posted an Instagram update about her health after she attempted suicide Monday. The former PopLyfe singer said she was at home and resting with her loved ones.
“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.” The post quickly garnered thousands of likes from her 2 million followers. At the time this article was written, more than 60,000 people liked the photo.
It’s unclear if she will make another statement. Be on the lookout for hoax accounts. The only Instagram page she has is with the username @kehlani; all others are fake. On Twitter, “@YSBHDAILY” is a good place to follow for updates on the singer. Her Snapchat account is “kehlanitsunami”
Earlier in the day, Kehlani told her followers she almost took her life. “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 wrote in an Instagram post.
Kehlani also denied the infidelity speculation. “No, I’m not a cheater, a thot. I’m a believer in following your heart and not lying to yourself,” she wrote.
Even though Kehlani has been active on social media through her attempted suicide and apparent cheating scandal, Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving and Kehlani's ex-boyfriend, PartyNextDoor, have remained quiet. Neither of Kehlani’s former flames issued a statement.
While they did not speak out in public, Irving’s teammate LeBron James has reportedly been helping him get through, though he has an ulterior motive. “He wants to make sure that Kyrie’s mind is right leading into the playoffs,” the insider said. “LeBron doesn’t want anything to derail Cleveland’s chances on winning a championship and something like this could really do that.”
