Kehlani’s suicide attempt came amid rumors that she had cheated on longtime boyfriend, NBA star Kyrie Irving, which turned out not to be true; she and Kyrie had actually broken up some time beforehand. Kehlani’s ex-boyfriend, rapper PARTYNEXTDOOR, Instagrammed a photo of himself laying in bed with her, and it got social media absolutely fired up! She received extreme backlash for allegedly cheating on her basketball superstar boyfriend, and it wasn’t pretty. It was enough to make her suicidal. So many celebrities couldn’t believe the pain that this poor girl experienced:
I love you Kehlani. You're beautiful. Worthy of love and light and happiness.

The public found out about Kehlani’s suicide attempt on March 29, one day after the scandal broke. “Today I wanted to leave this earth,” she wrote on her now-deleted Instagram account. “Being completely selfish for once. Never thought I’d get to such a low point … But as of today, i had no single wish to see tomorrow.. But God saved me for a reason, and for that… I must be grateful.. Cuz I’m not in heaven right now for a reason.”
So horrible! Poor Kehlani then revealed that PND was the person who found her after the attempt, and saved her life. He was photographed on Instagram sitting vigil by her hospital bedside. He’s never going to leave her again!
HollywoodLifers, our thoughts and love are with Kehlani during this difficult time.
