Chris Brown’s current girlfriend Karrueche Tran was reportedly left in tears after watching Rihanna’s interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” on Sunday night in which the Barbados singer revealed that she and Brown have maintained a very close bond since she dropped the restraining order in 2011.
Tran, 24, has been dating Brown, 23, for almost two years but she was allegedly stunned when she witnessed Rihanna admitting that she and Brown still love each other..
“If Karreuche ever thought she stood a chance being Chris’ main b—-, she can forget that now. She watched Ri on Oprah and the girl was crying. She saw how much Chris and Ri love each other, on TV no less, and it made her shed some tears,” a source close to the situation told HollywoodLife.com.
“Chris always told her Rihanna was his true love and now Rihanna told the whole world that too. Man, you would think K.T. would be in a bad place right now. I mean, she is because she’s crying. Make no mistake, KT know what time it is and she know where she stands in my [boy’s] life. Even though she ballin’ her eyes out, she knew this from jump street,” the source added.
Tran took to Twitter within hours of Rihanna’s interview airing and posted a cryptic message which read “Lol,” an acronym for the term “laughing out loud.” It is unclear who or what exactly she was laughing at, but critics suspect that it may have been a swipe directed at Rihanna, who cried throughout the emotional interview.
The Bajan singer spoke candidly about her 2-year relationship with Brown as well as its abrupt end after he physically assaulted her. Rihanna also revealed that Brown is “absolutely” the love of her life.
“I still love him. We’re very, very close friends. We built a trust again and that’s it. We love each other and we probably always will,” Rihanna told Winfrey.
“I think he was the love of my life. He was the first love and I see that he loved me the same way. We were very young and very spontaneous. We ran free. We ran wild. We were falling in love going in at a really rapid pace and we forgot about ourselves as individuals,” she explained.
While some critics have accused Brown of insensitively juggling two women at once, the source insists that he has been honest about his feelings for Rihanna since day one and that she is well aware that they share a close bond.
“You gotta give it to Chris though because he ain’t trying to hurt nobody. She damn well knew how he felt at that time about Ri and I think now more than anytime she knows it’s real. But I want you to know Chris ain’t no pimp like that. He ain’t trying to hurt Ri or K.T. or anybody. He just being real and keeping the game 100,” the source said.
We’re giving Karrueche about 30 days before Chris gives her the boot! Place your bet!
