Karrueche Tran Opens Up About Dating Chris Brown, Battling Rihanna

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.
