Here’s The Heartbreaking Reason Behind Kyrie Irving’s IG Apology To Kehlani

The Celtics' player wrote the open letter after hearing about “obnoxious” fans at her shows.

Published June 18, 2018

After making some waves by posting an honest, open-letter apology to his ex-girlfriend, singer Kehlani, Kyrie Irving has explained exactly why he did it. 

During their tumultuous relationship, Kehlani was rumored to have cheated on Irving with rapper PartyNextDoor. Two days ago, Irving posted a letter to Instagram defending his ex, who was hospitalized in 2016 after an attempted suicide attempt. 

  1. Irving opened up about the letter while he attended the MTV Movie Awards
  2. "She’s an incredible person, and I don’t ever want to see anyone do anything harmful in her way. I heard from her and other people that people are coming to her shows, and doing just really obnoxious things," he said. "I don’t ever want to see anyone go through that, especially a female like that, and you know, she’s incredibly special. I want the focus to be on her, her career, and that’s it."

    Irving also said that while the two aren't getting back together, they remain close friends. 

    The "Uncle Drew" star also explained why it's crucial for inclusion to be present in all areas. 

    “I think inclusion shouldn’t necessarily just be an idea, it should be a lifestyle no matter what," Kyrie said. "Sexuality, gender, race, it should all be equality at the end of the day. It’s part of my responsibility to really be one of those generational leaders who can be an advocate for that. I’m for love, peace, and harmony. I really want to see the world be a better place, and if I could do anything to change that, then I’m gonna do it."

  3. On Friday night, Irving posted a "long overdue" public apology to his ex, Kehlani

    @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. 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 bullshit. 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. 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
