Playing Singer Kehlani Posts 'Thank You For Saving My Life' Following Alleged Suicide Attempt

Kehlani says she is grateful that she is "not in heaven right now" after an alleged suicide attempt.

The 20-year-old R&B singer, who is featured on Zayn Malik's new album, Mind of Mine, was accused on social media of cheating on NBA player Kyrie Irving with her ex, PartyNextDoor. Following the onslaught of tweets and memes, Kehlani Instagrammed -- and later deleted -- a photograph of her tattooed arm attached to a hospital IV.

"Today I wanted to leave this earth," the GRAMMY nominee wrote in the caption. "Being completely selfish for once. Never thought I’d get to such a low point."

Kehlani went on to address rumors directly, saying, "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," she continued. "But God saved me for a reason, and for that, I must be grateful. Cause I’m not in heaven right now for a reason."

In a follow-up post, which has also since been deleted, Kehlani further addressed accusations of infidelity and explained why she chose to document her alleged attempt to take her life via social media:

"Not always crying for attention or help, I got my mama number on speed dial for that s**t. is everyone that conditioned to celebrities not being REAL PEOPLE??? I'm f**king going thru it. Going thru 20 year old drama queen issues and figure since all the trials in my songs that have seemed to help so many others, sharing my truths must be continued. Yes I go thru some crazy ass s**t. But YES I TELL THE STORY SO THAT HOPEFULLY SOMEONE ELSE WHO NEEDED TO HEAR IT, WOULD. I'm tired of being called the 'cry for help' cuz never in my life have I EVER asked a single soul to take pity on me no matter WHAT I'm going thru. And since you're begging for the truth on my love life: I am severely utterly in love with my first love. Went thru a bad breakup and ended up easing into a relationship with a man who was one of my bestfriend. Tho we realized we both weren't exactly at a time where we were prepared to do so. No I'm not a CHEATER, a THOT, I'm a BELIEVER IN FOLLOWING YOUR HEART and not LYING TO YOURSELF. And in all aspects on everyone's side, EVERYONE IS HAPPY AND HONEST AND MATURE. Social media is the goddamn devil. Go outside and play, you have your own lives to live that don't revolve around 'celebrities' or 'socialites' who are simply trying to live lives just like you."

Fortunately, Kehlani's last social media post was from what appears to be a hospital bed with the caption, "thank you for saving my life."

The singer's friend, Charlie Puth, took to his own Twitter upon hearing the news and wrote, "I'm very upset hearing this news about my friend right now. Social media is a terrible thing sometimes. I'm glad you are ok."

"People have no idea how much their words can affect people," the "We Don’t Talk Anymore" singer added. "What happened to treating everyone with kindness and understanding. This is me showing support for MY friend. I am so happy you are still here, the world hasn't seen nothing yet."

A rep for Kehlani had no comment.
