Chris Brown is stirring up some controversy, publicly calling out R&B singer Kehlani on the day the news of her suicide attempt went public. Brown took to Twitter on Tuesday to throw some shade at the 20-year-old star after she posted a now-deleted photo from the hospital.
“There is no attempting suicide,” he wrote. “Stop flexing for the gram. Doing s**t for sympathy so them comments under your pics don’t look so bad.”
Kehlani’s scary incident happened after she’d been accused of cheating on her NBA star boyfriend, Kyrie Irving, with her ex, singer PartyNextDoor. Brown seemingly referenced those allegations, tweeting, “Girls be mad at a n**ga for f**king around wit b**ches but her DMs got more names then the Declaration of Independence. #YEAHIMTHROWINGSHADE.”
He added, “They look like they have stank sex!!!!” before writing, “#KYRIEMVP.”
Brown wrapped up his rant, writing, “OK IM DONE. Guess she gone have to watch the games from a real ‘box’ now. ‘THE TELEVISION’ #OHB ‘OUTTA HERE BIH.’”
But Brown wasn't done, later tweeting, "I'll be the BIGGEST PIECE OF [poop emoji]. But ima ride for my Homies regardless. KYRIE is probably one of the only good guys left. IDGAF!!! The amount of followers I got and the amount of comments are the amounts of f**ks I give."
Despite Brown’s harsh comments, Kehlani has received plenty of celebrity support. Nick Cannon visited her in the hospital, and pals Charlie Puth and Questlove both tweeted kind words for the singer.
“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,” Puth tweeted. “People have no idea how much their words can affect people. 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.”
Questlove wrote, “man. just heard about kehlani. one of the nicest people ever. i wish good energy and strength for her life.”
