‘I’m not only am I fighting a battle with her, I’m fighting
a battle with her 14 million fans,’ Karrueche tells BET
host Keke Palmer.
Not one to kiss and tell, Karrueche Tran has kept
pretty quiet on her relationship with Chris Brown until
During an appearance on Keke Palmer’s new BET talk
show, “Just Keke,” which is set to air Wednesday, the
R&B star’s girlfriend revealed that “keeping a level
head and positivity” is how she’s been able to maintain
her relationship with Chris in the public eye.
But it hasn’t been all smooth sailing. Apart from
battling several legal issues, Chris was also at the
center of a love triangle with Karreuche and ex-
girlfriend Rihanna, who he briefly reconciled with in
“I’ve never dated a celebrity before so it was very new
to me — paparazzi and all that,” Tran said. “And then,
even the situation with Rihanna, you know the reason
why people tuned into this so much was because it’s
relatable: I have girlfriends, I have family who’s gone
through the same situation. It’s the case of the ex. We
all go through it, do you know what I’m saying?
“In this case, my boyfriend is a celebrity whose 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 whowever else,” Tran
continued. “So, imagine how that feels for me when I
gotta get on Twitter and I see a whole bunch of stuff …
they make up all kinds of crazy stuff and it’s, like, they
know nothing about me. But you know, because they
know nothing about me, because I stay so mute
sometimes, that leaves open space for them to say
whatever they want.”
Karrueche became visibly emotional talking about the
touchy subject, fighting back tears as she answered
Keke’s question about what the hardest part of the
whole situation has been.
“Um, jeez. I guess I would say the heartbreak because
it was a real situation,” she said.
Many fans now suspect that Chris and Karrueche have
broken up since she posted a quote on her Instagram
on Monday (July 14) that read, “You have shattered my
heart, but you have not shattered my love.”
The fashion designer also deleted several photos of
her and Chris from her Instagram account.
