Karrueche Tran has had a 5 year on-and-off-again relationship with Chris Brown. Despite the drama, the pair seems to be smitten with one another.
They split in 2012, and how are back together. Lately, there have been pregnancy rumors on the horizon, which started when Brown tweeted this on August 20:
However, on October 1, Us Weekly reported that Kendall Jenner is very interested in Brown. According to the magazine, they hung out during the weekend of the VMAs while he and Tran were on a break.
Here’s what you need to know about the woman in Brown’s life.
1. She Got Threats After Dissing Blue Ivy’s Hair
As a guest host on BET’s 106 & Park, Tran read this from a cue card, “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.”
The skit was called “Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought At The VMAs.”
Although she ended it with, “Sorry Blue! I love you,” people were less than thrilled.
President of BET Stephen Hill assured that it was not Tran’s joke, saying, “Oh, and please don’t hate on Karrueche; it was NOT her fault. We also apologize to her for putting her in that position.”
However, Tran still felt the need to apologize, she wrote this on Instagram:
Past two days have been extremely draining.. As I geared up for a big day for myself – hosting a live show.. I never expected things to turn out this way.. I apologize to any and everyone who felt offended in any way by the comments made by BET executed through me.. I would never disrespect anyone’s child in any way and anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Beyoncé. My comments have been in complete shambles.. yes I am human too and yes I do make mistakes.. But all this negativity and death wishes are quite a lot.. Definitely a lesson learned from here forth.. Again, on behalf of MYSELF, my sincerest apologies #BeyHive
2. She’s a Fashionista
In the interview with BET, above, Tran talked about her fashion sense. “It’s a mix of high fashion and street wear,” she said.
“Before my relationship with Chris, I was working at Nordstrom and that’s how I started off. I was a personal shopper for three years,” she continued.
Then she became a stylist and that’s how she met Brown.
On Power 106’s Big Boy’s radio show she dished on how it all went down:
Yeah, uh…About 4 years ago I was doing a styling job, random styling job and I went and he was there, then he did him, his usual charming talk, from there (sigh) that is where it all began. (Sigh) It’s been a long four years!
3. She Missed Chris When He Was in Jail
In the interview above with CNikky, Tran, 26, talked about what it was like while for her while Brown was in jail.
“It was hard. I had lonely nights…I’ve never been in a relationship with somebody that was in jail…It was tough…But I’m happy that he’s home,” she said.
4. She’s 1/2 the Inspiration Behind This Video
Brown tweeted this drunken-fueled documentary-style video in 2012.
He said, “When you share history with somebody and you fall in love with someone else, it’s kind of difficult. Is there such a thing as loving two people…For me I feel like that.”
Of course, he is talking about his love triangle with Rihanna and Tran.
In September, he told Entertainment Tonight that he’s still in touch with RiRi by saying, “We’re friends…Nothing too serious… We’re not trying to start a life together right now, we’re just having fun.” He also made it clear that all of his songs, including “Dunk Texting” is not about the songstress.
There’s speculation that his new single, “X” off the album of the same name, is inspired by his relationship with Tran.
These are the telling lyrics:
Substitute love for a better thing
I deal with my pain like a lonely child
I didn’t build these walls for you to piss all on my past oh
Go ahead burn it down, I’mma fill me another one
5. She’s Philanthropic
She participated in the Symphonic Love Foundation HIV/AIDS walk in L.A. Tran and her friends took pictures and spread the message of support on social media.
