Kehlani has a very good reason why we didn’t see her posted up on the gram with her boo Kyrie Irving on Valentines Day, and it’s not because the two have broken up. Instead the singer was celebrating her Grammy nomination, and turning up in L.A. HipHollywood caught up with Oakland native about her budding romance with the NBA baller, and why she didn’t make it to All-Star Weekend in Toronto to spend V-Day with her man.
“We had a dope Grammy party, and it was really awesome to stay and share that experience with everyone, and it was cool,” said Kehlani, who was nominated for her mixtape You Should Be Here. So did Irving try to make it to the Grammys to be her date? Kehlani told us, he was a little busy with basketball. “He’s got a lot of basketball things to take care of, but he’s right here in spirit holding my hand.”
The couple, who went public with their romance just last month, have been very affectionate on Instagram, with Irving posting this photo and message about his boo.
Kehlani told us she is happy, and has no problem clapping back at the groupies trying to slide in her man’s DM’s. “I don’t play no games when it comes to mine alright,” she laughed.
