The 20-year-old singer has been romantically linked to Cleveland Cavaliers basketball star Kyrie Irving for months, but they only confirmed the news via social media on Sunday (10Jan16).

Irving, 23, made the first move by uploading a picture of the pair hugging and captioned it with a sweet note for his girlfriend.

"Nothing else really matters when I'm with you...and That's when I knew I had someone special... as sappy as they come lol (laugh out loud)," he wrote.

Kehlani reposted the snap and responded to her man by writing, "And that's why you're a king. You've shown me so much in so little time.. lost faith in alotta (sic) things, but lots have been restored. All smiles witchuuuuuu Corny a** (sic)".

It is not yet known if the couple will make its red carpet debut at the Grammy Awards next month (Feb16), when Kehlani will learn if her You Should Be Here wins the Best Urban Contemporary Album honour.
