Kyrie Irving’s girlfriend Kehlani Parrish is a legitimate R&B talent. She’s been the receiver of some significantly corny and sweet messages from him as of late. He said that nothing else matters when he’s with her (what about your NBA career?). Irving then said that’s when he knew he had someone special, and her response was that he’d shown her so much in so little time and restored her faith in a lot of things. Oh boy, we’re dealing with some romance writers.
Here’s where things get less romantic. Kyrie Irving’s girlfriend Kehlani Parrish was accused of cheating on the Cavs star after some Instagram sleuthing found her back with an ex boyfriend. Kehlani was so devestated by the rumors that she went to Instagram to announce that she “wanted to leave this earth.” Kehlani apparently attempted suicide by slashing her wrists after a rough day on the Internet accusing her of infidelity. Heavy stuff, and a reminder of how dangerous things can be.
Kehlani was featured in a brief piece in none other than GQ Magazine about three weeks ago. She mentioned to the interviewer that she didn’t think of herself as a mainstream artist but that she was on top of the indie scene. Kyrie Irving’s girlfriend has got her career wheels spinning full speed. Any time you get featured in GQ, you must be doing something right. I feel like she should probably give her publicist a nice gift basket after that one. Speaking of gift baskets, Kyrie sends her those whenever he’s away from her. I saw her get one about three weeks ago, and she responded by saying that he never lets her forget how special she is. It sort of sounds weird when you put it like that, though. It’s sort of like saying, “I’m glad you realize how special I am.” No, but they’re sweet together.
Kyrie Irving’s girlfriend was also the youngest person on Forbes‘ 30 Under 30 list. That seems like a pretty cool honor to have. Being recognized by Forbes for being an influential and important young artist is going to get Kehlani a lot of attention even if it’s by the kind of people that read Forbes (probably not her target audience). Who knows- R&B fans can come from anywhere.
