Kyrie Irving expressed “love and compassion” for his ex-girlfriend Kehlani, who apparently tried to take her own life earlier this week. The Cleveland Cavaliers guard also pointed the finger of blame at Party Next Door, who seemed to spark a dramatic chain of events by posting a photo of himself in bed with the R&B singer.
“I do not justify the picture or what dude did to try and spark all of this non sense that could have been avoided,” Irving wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
“Nothing but love and compassion over this way for her and her family. My only focus the Game I love to play every night,” he added in an another erased message.
Irving’s obviously in a tough spot here. People fill silence with their own narratives and he must tiptoe a fine line. His tweets don’t seem all that controversial but you can understand his decision to audible out of them as not to prolong the story.
