AceShowbiz - Keyshia Cole also has a beef with Kehlani, after the latter was involved in a drama with Kamaiyah. Speaking with Hollywood Unlocked's Jason Lee, the "Love" songtress jumped in the feud between Kehlani and Kamaiyah while revealing that her relationship with the "Gangsta" singer is also "not cool" and they are no longer friends.
"With me and Kehlani, it's more so, 'I wish you the best,' " Keyshia said during the Instagram Live chat on Thursday, April 30. "We didn't see eye to eye on a lot of things and that's okay. [We're not cool]. Anything's possible as far as being cool again but I just don't think friendship [is possible.]"
It didn't take long for Kehlani to notice the interview and jumped in the comment of The Shade Room's post about Keyshia's remarks. Hinting that their own beef started off because of their collaboration, the 25-year-old responded to Keyshia's confession, "this is just sad and lame tho. i have screenshots of texts of Keyshia apologizing to my manager saying she just felt embarrassed about how she looked in the videos. apologizing to my manager saying she's just emotional."
"that's why she isn't in the video," she went on defending herself. "i lost money on that. i still look up to her and am honored to have her on the song, there are so many videos of me covering her songs on youtube since i was little. i have screenshots of me telling her she's an idol of mine. this is all super sad."
Things got heated up from there, with Keyshia stating, "I'm confused. I thought I explained that I wasn't upset at all. And that it's all lov'. We had disagreements....regardless, that I didn't disclose. And said I still loved and supported you. But you wanna Drk 'screenshots??' I have some screen shots of my own."
Kehlani then shared on her Instagram Stories screenshots of text messages from Keyshia's manager who explained why the artist wasn't in the video for their 2019 duet "All Me". The texts read, "Keyshia apologizes. She on deck we gonna figure out solution tomorrow," to which Kehlani replied, "i wish she would apologize to me."
The manager then assured her she would tell Keyshia to hit her up and explained she was "emotional and be overreacting." The manager added, "She was really self conscious. She said she look like …"
The Bay Area native included a long text she sent to Keyshia, saying that she just had surgery and was shocked by allegations she was trying to make her collaborator look bad on purpose. "I would never ever ever do that, that's so petty and stupid and I'm such a fan of you I don't know how you would've gotten any other vibe."
Kehlani additionally told Keyshia, "I wish you would just tell me your concerns or talk to me, I hate feeling like you think i'm 'hating' on you, why would I do that." She wrote over the screenshot, "IM A FAN. I WANTED HER IN THE VIDEO. IM CONFUSED AND BUMMED AS ANYONE ELSE. I'VE NEVER POSTED SCREENSHOTS OF TEXTS IN MY LIFE BUT IM TIRED OF BEING PAINTED AS A MESSY BAD PERSON WHEN PEOPLE JUST BE F**KING WITH ME!!!!"
Tired of the drama, Kehlani then ranted on her Instagram Stories, "THIS NARRATIVE OF HOPPING ON A TRAIN OF F**KING WITH ME WHEN IT'S CONVENIENT IS CRAZY." She continued writing in all caps, "AGAIN. IM NOT ANGRY. IM SAD. I MIND MY BUSINESS AND WORK MY A** OFF TO TAKE CARE OF MY FAMILY. LEAVE ME ALONE."
"AND FOR THERE TO BE THIS DAMN KEHLANIS IN DRAMA ALWAYS AND SHE ALWAYS A VICTIM LIKE MAN WHAT... ITS NOT POSSIBLE PEOPLE BE F**KING WITH ME???" she lamented. "LIKE PEOPLE JUST BE F**KING WITH ME. FORREAL. IM TOO NICE. IM TOO OPEN. I OVEREXTEND. I OVERSHARE. IM WORKING TO GROW OUT OF IT. THAT MAKES ME NAIVE AND POTENTIALLY TOO NICE. BUT DARK AND TWISTED? CALCULATED? HUHHH. F**K."
Kehlani later took to Twitter to inform her fans that she would sit down for an interview with writer Taylor Crumpton to air everything out right when her new album "It Was Good Until Wasn't" comes out on Friday, May 8. "until then i've been told to get off twitter," she shared.
