Kyrie Irving, the Cleveland Cavaliers guard, who is at the center of the discussion surrounding artists Kehlani and PartyNextDoor, finally decided to issue a statement about the cheating allegations and the nature of his current relationship with the singer.
The tweets were later deleted but the screenshot is real. Cleveland Sports Talk, as well as several other media outlets, saved them beforehand.
The timing of this statement is interesting. While I’m certainly happy that he finally spoke up, it would have been more useful when Kehlani’s name, character and reputation were being called into question by far too many people, who didn’t and don’t know her, on the internet. At the front of the pack was a very vocal and extremely hypocritical Chris Brown. Perhaps Kyrie has been avoiding the news lately and didn’t see that his former girlfriend attempted to commit suicide. Who knows?
Either way, now that the statement’s out, hopefully some people learned some valuable lessons, like:
- A picture often doesn’t tell the full story.
- Stop shaming women…and comparing all of them to Ayesha Curry.
- Don’t listen to Chris Brown
- Be careful what you say on the internet, it can severely hurt people.
What do you think of Kyrie’s statement?
