The friendship history of these two is truly special.

Following Kehlani's rather public battle with suicide on Tuesday, Nick Cannon came rushing by her side to show his support.

On his Instagram, he posted the photo below with the caption "Had to go grab my Youngen! #Family #LoveHug #NeverLettingGo #NeverLeavingHerSide #IGotYouForLife #UsAgainstTheWorld".


The Like A Boss mentor and media mogul became close friends with the singer following her debut on America's Got Talent Season 6, while hosting. The "Did I" singer finished in 4th place, but kept close ties with the man who she now refers to as a "father figure."

"Before Nick Cannon, I was homeless," she admitted to Billboard in 2015. "I was just in Oakland, I had one song out, and I had never really written too much before. He came from a standpoint of someone I had met a long time ago on America’s Got Talent. He saw my potential back then and he waited around to see what I grew into, and he saw a young girl who needed some help in the area where no one should really be struggling. Simple things like having a place to lay my head and having a safe place to write music. He really gave me that. He gave me a place to rest my head. As a young woman not having a father figure or any type of supportive male role in your life, that’s what he gave to me..."

We're glad to see he's keeping a close bond with the rising star and we wish her well in her recovery! You can keep up with Cannon and his next big mogul moves on his executive produced Oxygen show, Like A Boss.
