Hey roomies, who remembers the time singer, Petty Next Door, we mean Party Next Door, put his ex Kehlani on blast after he posted a photo on IG of them together with the caption, “After all the shenanigans, still got the R&B singer back in my bed,” even though she was reportedly dating NBA baller, Kyrie Irving.
The backlash from the post landed Kehlani in the hospital after she apparently tried to commit suicide over the whole thing, telling her fans, “Today I wanted to leave the Earth.” Well PND finally speaks on that faithful day in March in an interview with Rolling Stone and says he actually regrets what took place.
“I regret how it went down,” PND said. “Big time I regret how it went down. I look into people’s eyes, and I know they think I’m a bad guy. There’s a lot of details that people don’t know. I just hope people understand that was a year for him. And I hope everyone has a successful year, and I hope that’s in the past.”
Party Next Door, who’s real name is Jahron Anthony Brathwaite, also details how the anticipation for the release of his latest project ‘P3’ did little to soothe the crazy year he has had so far. “This year wasn’t a party for me, as ironic as that is, ” the singer said. “The best and worst things happened at once.”
He goes on to say, “It was a blue year for me. I thought, ‘Write a hit, you’ll be rich and happy.’ Meet one of the most beautiful girls in the world, one of the most talented, and I’ll be happy. All of that: I’m not happy.”
Speaking on being unhappy, PND also details how writing for other artists doesn’t really bring gratification to him either as he speaks about being some of the brains behind Rihanna’s hit song, “Work.”
“It doesn’t make me happy,” he says. “I’m looking for joy. It’s a moment for Rihanna and Drake. I want to invest time in creating moments for myself.
