Kehlani came out as gay in a recently released video.
The singer, who has long identified as queer and bisexual, told fans in a since-deleted TikTok clip, “I finally know I’m a lesbian,” before adding: “I am gay, gay, gay.”
The star, who goes by she/they pronouns, joked about her family’s unshocked reaction when she finally told them, telling the camera they were like: “We know, duh.”
She shared, “I just wanted y’all to know that everyone knew but me.”

Kehlani hinted at being gay during a recent Instagram Live.
According to Variety, Kehlani previously wrote on Twitter in a since-deleted post: “I felt gay always insisted there was still a line drawn as to which ‘label’ of human I was attracted when I really just be walking around thinking ERRYBODY FINE.”
However, she hadn’t come out to her family at that point.
The singer has a two-year-old daughter, Adeya Nomi, with guitarist Javie Young-White.
