Chris Brown. Friend to women. Friend to chairs. Friend to those who have attempted suicide.
Backstory: 20-year-old R&B singer Kehlani was dating 22-year-old hip-hop star Partynextdoor. They broke up. She started dating 24-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving. Then, Partynextdoor posted a photo of himself and Kehlani holding hands in bed, appearing to announce the two had reunited. What Twitter decided was that Kehlani had obviously been cheating on Irving since Irving didn’t call them up and tell them he and Kehlani had broken up, and also, if the point wasn’t made obvious enough by including the ages of these individuals, the tl;dr of all this is “relationships between college-aged individuals don’t necessarily last for eternity—film at 11.”
Tweets accusing Kehlani of cheating bombarded Twitter, topping the trends list. Now, Twitter is changing. Clicking on the trend, sure, there was a lot of hate being spewed at Kehlani, but also a lot of “stop the slut shaming.” In fact, that might have been the majority of the tweets. But, hate is louder when you’re the one on the receiving end.
And after talking in the past about being “in a dark place” the rumors took their toll.
“today I wanted to leave this earth. 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.”
With that, she deleted her Instagram.
But someone had to carry the dick torch to make his thoughts on the matter known. And that someone was Chris Brown. Because of course it was. In a series of tweets that will be deleted if his management still cares about preserving his image, Brown (in perhaps an effort to achieve the literal opposite of what Wentworth Miller did in yesterday’s post) said “there is no attempting suicide” and accused Kehlani of doing it for attention (because Chris Brown would NEVER do anything for attention, ever).
Yeah, Kehlani. Stop flexing for Instagram after you tried to kill yourself because men on Twitter were accusing you of cheating. Be a good, decent, moral human being like Chris Brown. Focus on more important matters.
