Grammy nominee Kehlani Parrish revealed she attempted suicide on Monday, March 28, amid rumors that she had cheated on her boyfriend, NBA player Kyrie Irving.
The “Did I” singer, 20, shared a photo of herself with an IV in her arm in a hospital bed on Monday night in a now-deleted Instagram post.
“Today I wanted to leave this earth,” Parrish caption the pic. “Being completely selfish for once. Never thought I’d get to such a low point. But.. Don’t believe the blogs you read .. No one was cheated on and I’m not a bad person… Everyone is hurt and everyone is in a place of misunderstanding.. 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.. On that note.. Bye Instagram.”
It’s believed that the suicide attempt was linked to rumors that Parrish had cheated on Irving with her ex-boyfriend, PartyNextDoor (PND) also known as Jahron Anthony Brathwaite. The rapper, who’s signed to Drake‘s OVO label, posted a photo on Monday of himself supposedly in bed with Parrish. “After all the shenanigans, still got the R&B singer back in my bed,” PND wrote, which immediately sparked speculation that Parrish had cheated.
By late Monday, “Kyrie” was trending across Twitter. Irving, 24, the point guard of the Cleveland Cavaliers, is a three-time NBA All Star. He has yet to address the incident on social media, but the athlete posted a photo with a pal — along with a note of appreciation for their friendship — late Monday night via Instagram.
“I appreciate you being that voice of reason through good and bad, wrong or right,” Irving captioned a photo. “I love you brother and I got you for forever.”
