Los Angeles premiere of YouTube Originals' 'Justin Bieber: Seasons'

Kehlani is a little upset no one in her family was shocked when she came out as a lesbian.

The singer confirmed she’s lesbian in a TikTok video she posted on Thursday after a snippet of an Instagram Live, in which she opened up about her sexuality, went viral.

“You know the video?” she said, sharing: “Well, it’s f**king true. I am gay, g-gay, gay, gay…”

But the star admitted she would have liked members of her family to have been more surprised when she came out to them, recalling: “When I want to have a heart to heart with my family, and be like, ‘I finally know that I’m gay’, they’re like, ‘We know, duh… stupid’.”

She went on: “I just feel like, ‘No…, I want you (to) fall on the floor and (say), ‘Congratulations, we had no idea! S**t!'”

Reflecting that her family were more clued in on her sexuality than she was, Kehlani exclaimed: “Everyone’s just like, ‘Duh, you’re the only one who didn’t f**king know. The f**king closet was glass.”

She added: “So I guess I just wanted y’all to know that everyone knew but me.”
