Kyrie Irving penned a heartfelt public apology to R&B star Kehlani on Instagram Friday night (June 15), where he made it a point to shoot down all rumors that the singer cheated on him with PARTYNEXTDOOR.
The Boston Celtics star point guard also spoke to the fact that people need to stop using his name to bring negative energy into her life. Irving explained on the MTV Movie + TV Awards red carpet about his decision to write the long-overdue open letter, years after they'd broken up.
"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. 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," the 26-year-old explained.
