Grab Your Tissues — Kyrie Irving Offers Super-Heartfelt Apology To Ex-GF Kehlani

Posted On : June 18, 2018

UNITED STATES — Kyrie Irving is putting his foot down and letting it be known he’ll no longer stand for fans degrading his former girlfriend.

Boston Celtics point guard ​Kyrie Irving used to date singer and performer Kehlani while part of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Well recently, she participated in an in-depth interview with Paper Magazine regarding her personal life since the cheating allegations.

If you don’t know, Kehlani and Irving split during those allegations and this led to his fans harassing her in various ways. Given that she attempted suicide during that time, Irving is now telling his supporters to cool it and accepting responsibility.

Via Instagram, Kyrie mentions as follows.

“@kehlani I’m sorry, i know this is long over due. I have to speak on this simply because I owe it to you and you deserve the world to see you for you and how beautiful you are inside and out, and not for the attachment to an emotional moment in time where we both had to grow up and learn about our hearts and our souls in a world that judges and adds on fictitious pressure, SN: And also add that we are public figures now on this social media monster of a platform.”

“I do not want anymore negative energy towards her in any way,” Irving continues. “She did not cheat or intentionally hurt me, she actually did something extremely noble & respectful, but the fact that it’s still a lingering narrative is really outdated at this point and as I’m hearing about what people are doing to try and intentionally hurt her on my behalf is bulls**t.”

“The lack of understanding of what we went through has bred a lot of unwarranted things happening and I want my supporters to really let her be the great soul I know she is whole heartedly,” Kyrie further emphasizes. “I’m hearing people are showing up to shows and being disruptive while she performs and when it starts affecting real life progress, the shit has to stop.”

“I am responsible as a leader to guide the young males who follow me in a positive way, & this is long overdue. We only try our hardest to be great humans and the fact that I can love her for how beautiful she is a privilege in its own right, I’m grateful. I want to see her and all individuals be who they truthfully are, unapologetically. #WeAreNotDating #Besties #BeenBesties#NeverStoppedNeverWell”

Likewise, Kehlani also responded to Irving’s apology with a statement of her own.

“The dopest part about this was the acknowledgement of his responsibility of leading young men that love him and go hard for him, that he has a responsibility to put his foot down where he see fit. I appreciate it no matter how long it took, I respect it being done period when really neither of us should be the one apologizing. All love on this side.”
