UPDATE: Kehlani Placed On Psychiatric Hold For “Wanting To Harm Herself.”



R&B singer Kehlani was placed on a psychiatric hold in L.A. yesterday — after emergency responders arrived to her Hollywood home and determined she posed a threat to herself … TMZ has learned.

We’ve learned … paramedics responded to a medical emergency at Kehlani’s home at 1:45 PM on Monday — and when they arrived we’re told “she wanted to harm herself.”

Law enforcement sources tell us … Kehlani was placed on a psychiatric hold and transported to a nearby hospital for a mental evaluation.

Kehlani has already said she was considering killing herself in the wake of rumors she cheated on NBA star Kyrie Irving … although Kehlani has adamantly denied that.

Kehlani has posted pics from her hospital bed saying she’s grateful to be alive … adding, “God saved me for a reason.”

No word on how long doctors plan on keeping Kehlani … but sources close to the singer tell us, “She’s doing much better.”

Multiple calls to Kehlani and her camp have not been returned.
