Kehlani took to social media and revealed she was sexually assaulted after her performance in Manchester on Monday (December 12).
The 37-year-old singer was wrapping up the European leg of her Blue Water Road Trip Tour when the assault occurred.
Kehlani detailed the assault in a post on her Instagram Story and shared that she is “sick to her stomach,” “triggered,” and “mindblown.”
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 & pulling my underwear to TOUCH TO 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.

Kehlani’s fans have taken to social media to share their outrage over what happened and to wrap her in love and support.
One person tweeted, “It takes a special piece of sh*t to do something like this. Get a f**king grip with reality, she is a human being not your little sexual object that you feel entitled to. Sexual assault is not and will never be okay. My heart goes out to Kehlani smh”
Another person wrote, “I am BEYOND livid, disappointed and heartbroken ? about what happened to Kehlani. Sexual assault is unacceptable. Whoever you are you should be utterly ashamed and need to seek serious help and be held accountable! #standwithsurvivors#sexualassualtisneverok“
