Kyrie Irving is currently single, according to the website WhosDatedWho.
The NBA star, who currently plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers (he asked to be traded last month), has not been linked to anyone since he was spotted out and about with actress Chantel Jeffries. The two dated for about five months in 2016, but never made any official public appearances together. Jeffries is currently dating Demi Lovato’s ex, actor Wilmer Valderrama, according to WhosDatedWho.
Prior to that, Irving was in a relationship with singer-songwriter Kehlani Ashley Parrish. The two started dating in 2015, but only lasted for a few months. Toward the end of their relationship, there were reports that Kehlani cheated on Irving with rapper PartyNextDoor. Kehlani and Irving had been together in early March 2016, but toward the end of the month, PartyNextDoor posted a photo of himself and Kehlani in bed, which sent the internet into a frenzy.
Soon after the cheating rumors circulated online, Kehlani was hospitalized. According to TMZ, Parrish was placed on psychiatric hold when law enforcement learned that she was having suicidal thoughts.
“Kehlani was placed on a psychiatric hold and transported to a nearby hospital for a mental evaluation. Kehlani has already said she was considering killing herself in the wake of rumors she cheated on NBA star Kyrie Irving … although Kehlani has adamantly denied that,” TMZ reported at the time.
It was at that time that Irving spoke out about the cheating rumors, posting a series of tweets about his ex.
“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 wrote, according to Fox Sports.
According to WhosDatedWho, Kehlani and PartyNextDoor were first linked in 2014. The two dated on and off for about two years, but were not together while Kehlani was with Irving according to her.
“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 best friend. 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. 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 posted on social media.
Despite her hospitalization and Irving’s tweets, Kehlani was highly criticized through all of this. She decided to quit social media, deleting all of her posts and photos.
Kehlani has returned to social media, but she is currently single.
