What’s this? Could rising singer Kehlani and basketball star Kyrie Irving be in talks to try things over again? Could the rumored “Hey, big head” text following his NBA championship win that social media joked about actually go down…and possibly worked?
TMZ spotted the former couple hugged up in Chicago on Friday night, a source telling them the were “smiling, hugging, and acting friendly.”
But they also report that the reunion isn’t a romantic one. Kehlani’s rep tells TMZ, “They are only friends. Not back together. Things ended bad, and they hadn’t had an opportunity to see each other … and they wanted to meet up face to face and make peace.”
That bad ending refers to the very-public exposé of the ending of their relationship back in March when Kehlani’s then-bae-and-ex-before Kyrie, singer PartyNextDoor, posted a photo of him on IG holding her hand while laying in bed. Kyrie announced they that had quietly split a month before, but it was too late; social media heavily scrutinized the singer and accused her of cheating, which landed her in the hospital after she allegedly tried to commit suicide from all the online bullying.
She posted a pic on IG of her arm with an IV in the hospital, prompting further accusations that the singer is an attention seeker.
But things seem to be all good with Kehlani now; she’s currently working on her debut album due for this fall.
