Chris Brown could stand to take a page out of Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving's playbook.
After the "Back to Sleep" singer bashed Kehlani Parrish for posting news of her alleged suicide attempt on social media, Kyrie sent warm, supportive tweets (that have since been deleted and preserved by The Shade Room) to ex- girlfriend Kehlani.
The singer became distraught when rumors began swirling that she cheated on the NBA star with singer/rapper PartyNextDoor.
Kyrie makes it clear that he and Kehlani were not in a romantic relationship when PND posted a photo of the tattooed R&B singer holding his hand in bed.
Unlike Brown, who brutally attacked Kehlani in a Twtter rant posted on Tuesday, March 29, Kyrie insisted he felt nothing but "love and compassion" for his ex, and hoped she and her family recovered quickly from the recent drama.
Kyrie wrote: "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 nonsense 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 it's become bigger because of a post that was misunderstood," he added. "Nothing but love and compassion over this way for her and her family. My only focus the Game I love to play every night."
Kehlani also denied the cheating rumors while she was still hospitalized. "No one was ever cheated on and I'm not a bad person," she said. "Everyone is hurt and everyone is in a place of misunderstanding." She also thanked PartyNextDoor for saving her life.
Hopefully Kyrie's message can bring some closure to the situation and allow Kehlani to finish healing.
