Was Kyrie Irving really cheated on by his girlfriend? Rumors spread across the NBA circuit regarding the Cavaliers star’s personal life. Irving finally broke his silence on Wednesday.


Irving expressed himself in a series of tweets on Wednesday night, which were later deleted. Irving pointed out that his focus is on basketball, according to the ESPN.

“It’s been hard to see what’s been going on and not address the truth. I do not justify the picture or what dude did to try and spark all of this non sense that could have been avoided, but Me and Kehlani were not dating when the picture came out. It’s unfortunate that it’s received so much attention but its become bigger because of a post that was misunderstood. Nothing but love and compassion over this way for her and her family. My only focus the Game I love to play every night.”

Irving has been dating 20-year old singer Kehlani and posting photos of it as early as this month. Early this week, when rapper PartyNextDoor posted a photo which appeared to be him sharing a bed with Kehlani, the fans exploded in social media, accusing the young singer of cheating on the Cavs’ star.

Kehlani replied by posting photos of her this week, showing Rapper Party next to her in the hospital bed. She also credited Rapper Party for saving her from an attempted suicide, according to the Fox Sports.

The 20-year-old also denied cheating on Irving and introduced Rapper as her “first love”. “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, im a BELIEVER IN FOLLOWING YOUR HEART and not LYING TO YOURSELF. …

“Social media is the (expletive) devil. Go outside and play, you have your own lives to live that don’t revolve around ‘celebrities’ or ‘socialities’ who are simply trying to live their own lives like you.” Kehlani then said goodbye to the social media and deleted her Instagram photos. She also stated that she is back home and doing much better.
