Kehlani Parrish is trying to leave the past behind.
On Monday, the 22-year-old star kicked out a fan from her Tuscan, Arizona show after they yelled out the name of her ex-boyfriend, Kyrie Irving. Following the incident, Parrish demanded that the lights were turned on and that the person who shouted Irving’s name was identified.
“Get the f*** out this concert, bitch,” the R&B singer is heard saying. “Point him out. Where was the guy? Y’all better be loyal to me in this bitch. Point that ni**a out. Where the fuck he at? Get his bitch-ass out. F**k you. We don’t play that stupid-ass shit up in here. Come on. Kyrie would whoop your fuckin’ ass. That’s my best fuckin’ friend.”
Back in March 2016, the California-born beauty had recently broken things up with the basketball player when PARTYNEXTDOOR posted an Instagram photo of himself and Kehlani holding hands on the bed. Parrish was immediately slut-shamed by fans who thought she was still dating the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard. Due to the scrutiny she received from the scandal, the “Gangsta” singer was hospitalized after an apparent suicide attempt.
The songstress took to Instagram on Tuesday to defend herself for blasting the fan. “After a year of being tormented, harassed, people sending me death threats/showing up to festivals in jerseys throwing shit at me and chanting names, bullying my family in school, at the grocery store, walking down the street, shit that I never even SPOKE on because I dealt with my problems like an adult ON MY OWN for once…I finally stood up for myself,” the brunette beauty wrote on the now-deleted post. “After a year of depression and therapy, moving away to a new city because of it, I FINALLY STOOD UP FOR MYSELF. I’ve held concerts where when they screamed a name at me I ran off, had a panic attack and cried. I’m finally confident, fearless and unashamed. It felt good as hell to do what I did, so bring on whatever you want because I’m proud of myself, my team is proud of me, my mom is proud of me. I wish you peace — oh … and you couldn’t last a day in my shoes.”
