It’s a rare occasion when this blogger agrees with singer Chris Brown on anything. Brown, 26, took to his Twitter.com account to call out wannabe singer Kehlani, 20, for faking a suicide attempt.
Last week, nobody knew who Kehlani or rapper Party Next Door were. But thanks to the various Instagram blogs, PND and Kehlani are everywhere.
Even legitimate news websites, that were once the purveyors of real news, have fallen for this hoax perpetrated by 2 nobodies.
Party Next Door is the name of a rapper signed to rap mogul Drake‘s OVO Sound record label.
Singer/songwriter Kehlani is an Oakland native who tried to use Cleveland Cavaliers star guard Kyrie Irving to come up.
It was obvious to everyone that Kehlani was using Kyrie when she recently told an interviewer she didn’t have any feelings for him. Duh!
The Kehlani/PND hoax started when PND, who is supposedly Kehlani’s ex-boyfriend, posted an Instagram photo of Kehlani in his bed.
Next, Kehlani posts an emergency room photo on Instagram along with a carefully crafted “attempted suicide” note.
Then she posts a “thank you for saving my life” photo of PND sitting at her ER bedside.
Cue the Instagram blogs — who make mountains out of mole hills — and you have a massive viral hoax that leaves readers scratching their heads asking, “Who ARE these people?”
Even attention whore Nick Cannon got involved in the shenanigans by rushing to the ER to pick up Kehlani. He’s her “mentor”.
Everyone wins in this scenario except for poor Kyrie Irving, who looks like an idiot for falling for a crazy light skinned long hair chick with tattoos and piercings.
Chris Brown is correct for once. Celebrity IV fluids photos have become commonplace on social media. An IV fluids photo does not equate to a suicide attempt.
Celebrities regularly post IV fluid pictures on social media (Hello? Rihanna did it twice).
It’s become routine for emergency rooms to generate extra revenue by hanging bags of normal saline IV fluids on patients with slightly elevated blood tests.
There was a time when ER doctors would advise those same patients to go home and drink more water. Now they hang IV fluids for extra cash.
Moral of the story: don’t believe everything you read on social media.
