Singer Kehlani Shared that She Was Sexually Assaulted During Her UK Show

Recently, singer Kehlani revealed that she was sexually assaulted by a concert-goer. In an Instagram Story post, she expressed her disgust over being violated, especially as a survivor of sexual assault.

“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. 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 and pulling my underwear to TOUCH MY GENITALS as I am being escorted through a crowd after performing. This sh*t made me sick to my stomach. As a victim of sexual assault, I am endlessly triggered and mindblown," said the singer.
