For those of you who do not know, Twitter erupted yesterday after R&B singer/songwriter, Kehlani was publically accused of cheating on her NBA boyfriend Kyrie Irving with her musician ex boyfriend PartyNextDoor. Of course social media made the situation ten times worse and Kehlani was called a whore. Men from all points of the earth came together in a unified chant, “this is why I don’t trust women”! All in all, if Kim Kardashian ” two divorces, sex tape, extensive slut shaming ” has never publically attempted suicide what made Kehlani feel that this was the only way. Why Kehlani?
What Lead Kehlani Too This Point ??
The whole back and forth argument about whether or not Kehlani cheated is besides the point. In fact, the average person barely knows who Kehlani even is to be honest. Her biggest accomplishment to date is being nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for Best Urban Contemporary Album for her mix tape You Should Be Here. It is safe to assume that the backlash Kehlani received from rumors of cheating was too much for her to bare. She deleted her Instagram account, and it later surfaced that she was hospitalized for attempting suicide. Is it just me, or do people not understand that when you become a public figure any and everything you do will be analyzed through a microscope by everyone. Did no one prepare her for this? I am in no way shape or form sweeping the epidemic of suicide under the rug but, serious talk of suicide this early in her music career is not a good look.
The hashtag, #StayStrongKehlani , is currently trending on Twitter and I cannot help but roll my eyes. If Kehlani and Kyrie Irving were in a committed relationship, it was extremely disrespectful for PartyNextDoor to publically call her previous relationship “shenanigans” and basically imply that he has his girl back [ Kehlani], and that they are sleeping together again. PartyNextDoor basically fueled the social media fire. As I’ve said in previous posts, why do people feel the need to tell the whole world who they are sleeping with via social media. PartyNextDoor should have read our previous blog post about being petty on social media, which is exactly what he was doing 5 Reasons Why Being Petty With An Ex On Social Media Is A Bad Idea . According to TMZ, Kehlani has since stated the following through a deleted Instagram post:
“I am severely utterly 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 [Irving]. Tho we realized 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.”
Why Fame Is Not for Everyone
Words to Kehlani, if you cannot handle the black lash of social media then maybe the music business is not for you. You cannot put your life on display for everyone to see and then expect not to hear everyone’s opinion on your life. Kehlani claims to have never cheated on Kyrie Irving, however, her situation is one that I see quite often on social media. Kehlani clearly was not over PartyNextDoor when she got into a relationship with Kyrie Irving. Therefore, was the post she made towards Kyrie back on Valentines Day just a way to get PartyNextDoor’s attention? Like many women, we seek to be saved from bad situations by men. At this point, I’m not even sure if Kehlani is actually in love or just in love with the idea of love. I mean she is only 20 years old.
But Kyrie Irving is Worth $15 Million
To everyone else, I noticed that a lot of people were at a loss for words wondering how Kehlani could allegedly cheat on someone who has a net worth of $15 million for someone that does not. Remember that no amount of beauty or money will keep someone from cheating in a relationship. Besides, Kehlani obviously makes her own money and most likely doesn’t care.
Where was her team?
Lastly, no one really knows the extent of either of Kehlani’s public relationships. I am tired of the comparisons that everyone makes to Ayesha Curry and Steph Curry’s marriage. Yes, their marriage does look picture perfect. Yes, Ayesha Curry does appear to be the most perfect God fearing, submissive, fully clothed woman on the planet. Overall , it was known that Kehlani had some mental health issues, so my question is where was her PR and mental health team?
