Twitter is aflutter with rumors that R&B singer Kehlani cheated on her boyfriend, Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving, with her ex-boyfriend, R&B singer PartyNextDoor. The drama unraveled when PND posted an Instagram picture with a cryptic caption.

“After all her shenanigans, still got the R&B singer back in my bed,” PND wrote Monday and then quickly deleted the image. It showed two hands locked together. Even though Kehlani’s face wasn’t in the photo, the telltale sign it was the Grammy-nominated singer was that her hand tattoo, which reads “WOKE,” was visible. Either there’s another girl with the same tattoo, or Kehlani was caught in PND’s bed.

Kehlani, 20, deleted her entire Instagram page. There is one new page, which claims to be her new authentic username. It isn’t verified yet and she has only 292 followers. The description reads: “20-year-old Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter. Deleted my page at 2million due to some issues ...” The page is probably a hoax, though.

What is real is that the news has been shocking for Irving’s fans. Kehlani didn’t make their relationship official until she confirmed it in an Instagram post in January. She called Irving “a king” and then wrote: “You’ve shown me so much in so little time ... lost faith in [a lot of] things, but lots have been restored.”

Kehlani dumped Irving, 24, over the weekend because she thought he was “boring” and “lame,” the blog Media Take Out wrote Monday. She also thought their sex life was lackluster, the blog added.

Kehlani and PND have not responded to the cheating rumors on social media. Irving responded by posting a picture of the hamsa hand, which is an amulet for magical protection from the envious or evil eye. The post was liked 62,500 times by Irving's 4.9 million followers.
