Karrueche Tran Opens Up About Dating Chris Brown, Battling Rihanna

Karrueche Tran

Karrueche Tran has been in the headlines for her on-again, off-again relationship with Chris Brown. While she normally shies away from interviews, the R&B superstar’s girlfriend opened up about all the heartbreak and drama during her appearance on Keke Palmer’s BET talk show “Just Keke.”

“I’ve never dated a celebrity, so it was very new to me, paparazzi and all that,” said the 26-year-old while reflecting on her romance with Chris.

“Even the situation with Rihanna, the reason why people tuned into this so much is because it’s relatable. I have girlfriends, I have family who’s gone through the same situations. The case of the ex. We all go through it.”

She found herself in a sticky situation. “In this case, my boyfriend is a celebrity who’s ex-girlfriend is an even bigger [celebrity]…so not only am I fighting a battle with her, I’m fighting a battle with her 14 million fans or however else.”

Social media has been especially unkind. “They make up all kinds of crazy stuff and it’s like they know nothing about me,” said Karrueche. “But because they know nothing about me, because I stay so mute sometimes, that leaves open space for them to say whatever they want.”

The interview took an emotional turn when Keke asked her what was the hardest part of being in a love triangle. “I guess I would say the heartbreak because it was a real situation,” said a teary-eyed Karrueche.

    Yaaaaasssssss. Keke the new Oprah y’all.

    But on a more serious note, I do feel bad for karrueche. But why address it in public like this.

    Breezy must be really slanging for these chicks to be so caught up like this, crying on national tv and shit.

    Really? Can she go without mentioning Rihanna? She needs to bring up all the other girls chris brown has been with before she was claimed. Who is giving this girl a mic?

    Rihanna hasn’t done nor said anything to Kay, so don’t try to turn this into good vs evil

    Females always tryna put each other against each other when 98.9% of the time it traces back to the male

    ooh Reply:

    @I’m Just Sayin tho, that was never confirmed to be actually about her or just another line in a song so why believe the gossip aspect rather than what is actually presented on the table?

    I agree with Mila J, its sad females rather pit two females in a triangle against each other rather than the male is obviously causing the pain

    i knew Kae from since I was 15 (27 now)…she is the most sweetest person but everything she went thru she should have expected it. It was her choice to stick around while Chris went back to rihanna. And I honestly feel like if rihanna comes back around Chris would run again. She has to make up her mind weather shes going to play 2nd.

    So KeKe Palmer can have a “talk show” on BET but TJ Holmes can’t go one season without having Don’t Sleep cancelled? At least that was talking about relevant issues in our community. And if Karrueche had any damn sense and self-respect, she would’ve left CB a long time ago.

    I am navy but I was never the one to be calling this girl all types of names, I hate when fans do that it puts a bad name on them and even a worst name on the artist.

    I looooooooooove Karrueche!

    She’s such a positive person.. Her instagram page is often attractive beacus she post interesting phrases etc.

    After all, she’s a normal girl like ya’ll and I.So she’s not used to the star system . We should all show solidarity .

    I can’t really feel sorry for Karate since she gets practically naked on Instagram. She freaking loves the attention.

    @Sorry Karate,
    Why do you call her like that ?? You have some problems of pronunciation ??
    You know, you can consult for that .

    Sorry Karate Reply:

    @From France, I typed it exactly how I meant for it to be pronounced. I sick of these celebrity chicks crying about why they stay in a loveless relationship. The reason they stay is because of the money. If Chris Brown was broke, she would not have put up with a love triangle. PERIOD!

  14. ?

    I really do feel bad for her but Keke why would you ask her about this? You say your her friend and stuff like that but you ask her a question like this on live television. My best friend asked me a similar kind of question on his radio show one time so I know how it feels. Your young so I understand that sometimes you don’t know how people will react but to put her on the spot like this was just wrong.

  15. Reallytho?

    Kae needs to end this sympathy tour NOW!!! She is complaining when she and her friends took shots at Rihanna FIRST. Kae is sad because she is bringing Rihanna and Chris left Kae for Rihanna, and went back to Kae when it didn’t work out with Rihanna. Kae is a conflicted nitwit. She’s faking her tears for sympathy looking for a rise out of Rihanna, for what reason remains to be seen. But Kae s lost. She is struggling trying to find her niche, something that really gives her an identity besides a cheating, pot head, angry man Chris Brown. She’s talking about her boyfriend like the jailbird abuser is a prize. She gets no sympathy from me. Furthermore Kae, next time don’t pick a fight you know you can’t win. Rihanna has moved on and stop baiting her with your childish woe-is-me drama.

    @Reallytho?, one of the verrrrry few true comments ever on this site and i believe that is because females tend to think with emotion more than logic; plus this is news/gossip and females tend to attract to these topics in a non factual fashion way more than males

    I apologize if it comes off as sexist, which it is not, but is unfortunately FACTS

    You rihanna fans are annoying as hell. Sitting here reading your comments is just draining. Y’all get so wrapped up in these celebrities personal lives like you know them personally. Does anybody else find anything wrong with that or is it just me ? I don’t blame Karrueche for not fighting back cause who wants to argue back and 4th with a bunch of fags unknown fags. . Rihanna’s such an icon and a lovable person but CB still went back to Karrueche *drops mic*

    We’re still talking about this in 2014?! Looking for fans i see Kay! No sympathy for you! You know what’s up cause it all really started from that youtube video with Rihanna song playing in the background and then want to play victim when America got wind of it! She’s been shading RiRi since she met Chris! Chris said in an interview that when Rihanna and Kay met, then were nice to each to the point he had difficulty choosing between them! She wants a fan base big enough to compete with the likes of RiRi! Save the tears! She with now anyway so why talk about this?! #ByeFelicia

    @ZeroPhucksGiven,

    Rihanna has the dumbestset of fans. Nothing wrong with this girl sharing her experience. Im ready for a talk show that don’t just show these boring celebs we see the same everyday. So big up to keke for making it happen. Do Bobbi Christina next.

  21. LeavehimKarrueche

    Karrueche has class but her man posts photos of her ass on Instagram & lets Chris call her a b***h on IG and she thinks it’s funny instead of disrespectful. Why didn’t she go on the show to promote her modeling or her fashion line? If she wanted to cry about the CB/Rihanna situation, she should’ve done it 2years ago, stop dragging your situation out Kae. You went right back to him after Rih broke up w/ him. The only reason people interview her is to get her to talk about Chris, if she mentions Rihanna it makes more people pay attention. Kae needs to stop playing the sympathy act, what about the girl Chris cheated on her with in Rehab? Did she address that? Nope, of course she would only address the 2 year old situation with Rihanna. You should’ve left him, that would’ve made people have respect for her, but she’s such a doormat she stays after all Chris’ bull! She needs to get some self respect and get a backbone & leave Chris’ crazy, disrespectful a** alone.
