Chris Brown claims Kehlani attempted suicide for sympathy


Chris Brown seemed to be disturbed by Kehlani leaving Kyrie Irving for Party Next Door and her subsequent suicide attempt. During a late-night rant against Kehlani, Brown blasted the Oakland, California-raised singer.

The entire incident began after Drake affiliate, Party Next Door, posted a photo of himself with Kehlani in bed on his Instagram page on March 28. It came as a surprise to many, who thought that she was still in a relationship with NBA star Kyrie Irving. Kehlani, 20, soon began to face backlash on social media and eventually deleted her Instagram page.

The following morning, Kehlani revealed that she attempted suicide and posted a picture of herself in the hospital. Most of the cyber bullying against Kehlani stopped after some realized that she was possibly dealing with deep issues that extended beyond her relationship choices.

However, Chris Brown took the opportunity to lash out at Kehlani on Twitter. “Girls be made at n—- for [messing] around with b—s but her DMs got more names than the Declaration of Independence,” Brown tweeted. He went on to show support to Irving by posting “#KyrieMVP.”

But Brown’s rant when to another level after he suggested that Kehlani’s suicide attempt was only for sympathy because she was facing backlash on social media. “There is no attempting suicide. Stop flexing for the gram. Doing s– for sympathy so them comments under your pics don’t look so bad,” he tweeted.

Brown eventually faced backlash himself from other celebrities after the tweets against Kehlani. Zendaya and Tinashe, who both have songs with Brown, unfollowed him on social media and others voiced their opinion.

It comes at a time when Brown seemed to be maturing a bit after the birth of his first daughter, Royalty. But his lack of consideration for Kehlani’s overall well-being reveals that Brown continues to struggle with problems. Unfortunately, it appears as if Brown’s superior talent can’t save him from himself.
