R&B singer was admitted to hospital on Monday (March 28)
Kehlani has reactivated her Instagram account and confirmed to fans that she is in the clear after a reported suicide attempt.
The R&B singer was hospitalised on Monday night and posted an image on Instagram of herself in a hospital bed with her right arm hooked up to a drip. The now deleted picture was accompanied with Kehlani writing: “I wanted to leave this earth. Being completely selfish for once. Never thought I’d get to such a low point.”
The 22-year-old had been the focus of online gossip after ex-boyfriend, and Drake affiliate, Partynextdoor posted an image online of the pair in bed together while it was thought Kehlani was still in a relationship with basketball player, Kyrie Irving.
Since then she has reactivated her Instagram account and shared a post where she said she’s “healthy, home, & with ppl who love me.”
The full post read “thank you for the love. everyone’s fighting things people know nothing about. healthy, home, & with ppl who love me. thank you 4 all support. all God. Will b taking a space,” and was subsequently deleted.
Meanwhile, TMZ report that Kehlani was put on psychiatric hold after officials deemed she was a danger to herself.
Some of the R&B singer’s famous friends posted messages of support for her throughout Tuesday with #StayStrongKehlani trending on Twitter. “man. just heard about kehlani. one of the nicest people ever. i wish good energy and strength for her life,” The Roots’ Questlove tweeted, while JoJo added: “I love you Kehlani. You’re beautiful. Worthy of love and light and happiness.”
Nick Cannon, meanwhile, visited her in hospital where he shared a picture of her with his Instagram followers. Kehlani first came into the public spotlight as a contestant on season 6 of America’s Got Talent, which was hosted by Cannon.
Kehlani is signed to Atlantic and released the ‘You Should Be Here’ mixtape in 2015. She also also appears on Zayn Malik’s new album, collaborating with the former One Direction singer on ‘Wrong’ and has worked with Justin Bieber and Pusha T.
