Kehlani Receives Apology From Ex Kyrie Irving Almost Two Years After Accusing Her Of Cheating Publicly
After NBA player Kyrie Irving accused his then girlfriend, singer Kehlani, of cheating on him with her ex-boyfriend, singer PartyNextDoor, via social media in 2016, the Oakland songstress hit a low point. She was severely bullied on Instagram and ended up being hospitalized after a suicide attempt. Almost two years later, Irving has apologized publicly.
“I’m sorry, I know this is long overdue,” he wrote in a lengthy Instagram post. “I have to speak on this simply because I owe it to you and you deserve the world to see you for you and how beautiful you are inside and out, and not for the attachment to an emotional moment in time where we both had to grow up and learn about our hearts and our souls in a world that judges and adds on fictitious pressure.”
Irving also pointed out that Kehlani is still being ridiculed at her shows because of what he posted and expressed remorse while calling for it to end.
“I’m hearing people are showing up to shows and being disruptive while she performs and when it starts affecting real life progress, the shit has to stop. I am responsible as a leader to guide the young males who follow me in a positive way, & this is long overdue. We only try our hardest to be great humans and the fact that I can love her for how beautiful she is a privilege in its own right, I’m grateful.”
Kehlani accepted the apology and left a comment on The Shade Room‘s post saying there are no hard feelings between them.
“The dopest part about this was the acknowledgement of his responsibly of leading young men that love him [and] go hard for him, that he has a responsibility to put his foot down where he [sees] fit,” she said. “I appreciate it no matter how long it took. I respect it being done period when really neither of us should be the one apologizing. All love on this side!”
