Kehlani Parrish, the 20-year-old Grammy nominee who goes by Kehlani in her R&B career, revealed Monday night that she had been hospitalized after a suicide attempt, Us reports. The singer shared a photo (since deleted, but saved here) on Instagram showing an IV in her arm as she lay in a hospital bed, captioned, "Today I wanted to leave this earth. Being completely selfish for once. Never thought I'd get to such a low point." The suicide attempt came after rumors surfaced that Parrish cheated on her boyfriend, Cleveland Cavaliers player Kyrie Irving, with her ex-boyfriend, rapper Jahron Anthony Brathwaite, who goes by PartyNextDoor or PND.

But Parrish disputed those rumors, continuing in the caption: "Don't believe the blogs you read .. No one was cheated on and I'm not a bad person... Everyone is hurt and everyone is in a place of misunderstanding.. But as of today, i had no single wish to see tomorrow." Brathwaite had posted a photo Monday that appeared to show himself in bed with Parrish (also apparently since deleted, but saved here). Parrish, who finished up her post with "Bye Instagram," appears to have deleted all her posts from the social media site, but Bossip notes that on Tuesday morning, she posted another picture appearing to show Brathwaite at her bedside and thank him for saving her life. It has also since been deleted, though Bossip has it saved. (More celebrity stories.)
