Kehlani briefly deleted her Instagram account after her fans of her ex-boyfriend Kyrie Irving left nasty comments, but she did a 180, returning to the social media platform to show her support for the NBA champion. Take a look!
Kehlani, 21, harbors no ill will towards her ex Kyrie Irving, and she took to Instagram to celebrate his June 19 NBA win! Though the “You Should Be Here” singer deleted her Instagram after the Cavaliers took home the championship, she rejoined less than 24 hours later to gush over Kyrie and his talent. Take a look at what she posted on June 20!
No bad blood here! Kehlani shared an epic snap of Kyrie in the game, captioning it “Tough night for the city, but congratulations the most humble person I’ve ever met! @kyrieirving I love u!” How sweet is that?
For a period of time after the big game, @Kehlani no longer existed! The singer-songwriter was trying to avoid criticism and negative comments from social media trolls, as Kyrie fans harassed her on the platform in the comments of her pics. “Hey big head,” user _stormieshay_ wrote, which is code for reaching out to one’s ex, and the more absurd “L” (implying that Kehlani “caught a loss” due to Kyrie’s win) was posted by multiple users. We’re so glad she’s ignored the haters and rejoined IG!
We love that Kehlani is showing love for her friend, and we have to wonder if a recent report stating the pair is back together is true after all. Per MediaTakeOut, Kyrie is trying to win Kehlani back, and it comes on the heels of a screenshot of an exchange between Kyrie and a girl who supposedly knows Kehlani surfaced on Instagram. The user wrote “I miss yall” to Kyrie, referencing him and Kehlani as a couple, and he replied “Yea she’s pretty awesome.” Hmm!
