In case you missed it: in a now-deleted Instagram post, singer-songwriter Kehlani Parrish, alarmed fans when she shared the following from a hospital bed: “Today I wanted to leave this earth. 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.”

The 20-year-old also revealed that her ex-boyfriend PND was the one who came to her aid. In fact, rumors of Parrish cheating on Cavaliers superstar Kyrie Irving started after PND posted a pic of himself holding her hand in bed.

Before finding fame, the Oakland, California native was a contestant on season 6 of “America’s Got Talent,” where she met host Nick Cannon. Although she finished in fourth place, in May 2015, Parrish shared that the entrepreneur had a profound influence on her life. “Before Nick Cannon, I was homeless,” she said at the time. “I was just in Oakland, I had one song out, and I had never really written too much before. He came from a standpoint of someone I had met a long time ago on America’s Got Talent. He saw my potential back then and he waited around to see what I grew into, and he saw a young girl who needed some help in the area where no one should really be struggling. Simple things like having a place to lay my head and having a safe place to write music. He really gave me that. He gave me a place to rest my head. As a young woman not having a father figure or any type of supportive male role in your life, that’s what he gave to me. He was kind of like a father figure.”

So it only made sense that the actor would rush to her side during a pivotal time in her life. “Had to go grab my Youngen!” the father of two shared via Instagram, alongside a snap of himself hugging Parrish. “#Family #LoveHug #NeverLettingGo #NeverLeavingHerSide #IGotYouForLife #UsAgainstTheWorld.”

Meanwhile, a slew of other celebs sent their well wishes. “Man. just heard about kehlani. one of the nicest people ever. i wish good energy and strength for her life,” wrote Questlove Gomez. “I love you Kehlani. You’re beautiful. Worthy of love and light and happiness,” said singer Jojo.
