Kehlani is outraged after the singer claimed they were sexually harassed after her show in the United Kingdom. In a long Instagram Story uploaded on Tuesday, December 13, the Oakland, California native described what happened when their Blue Water Road Trip World Tour concluded.
According to their report, following her performance, Kehlani was touched by a fan as they made their way through the audience inside the O2 Victoria Warehouse. She said the person reached up her skirt, drew her underwear to the side, and touched her genitals.
“I’ve made video after video after video and deleted it because I don’t want any video of me as angry, triggered, crying upset as I am anywhere,” Kehlani wrote. “I don’t care how sexual you deem my music, my performances, my fun with my friends dancing at clubs, or ME.
That does not give any of you the right to cross a boundary like sticking your hands up my skirt & pulling my underwear to TOUCH MY GENITALS as I am being escorted through a crowd after performing. This shit made me sick to my stomach. As a victim of sexual assault, I am endlessly triggered and mindblown.”
Kehlani has spoken up about their prior sexual assault incident. During an interview on the Sunday Gems podcast in 2019, the singer described the moment she knew she had been raped.
“There is nothing I can say that is new, that I feel like is providing a real take, that I feel isn’t gonna take away from the conversation,” she explained. “I don’t want to add more hurt, I don’t want to add more pain. All I want to say is, ‘Sending love to everybody who’s on a healing path right now, and sending love to everybody who needs it. And if you’re apologizing for abuse, you’re disgusting, suck my d**k.'”
Since sharing the message on social media, the singer hasn’t revealed much further about the event in the UK.
