Karreuche Tran’s life as Chris Brown’s girlfriend has been anything but perfect. The normal ups and downs any relationship faces became immense as she dealt with it in the public eye. Falling in love with a famous star unknowingly threw her into stardom without a road map.
If you’ve kept up with Chrae, you know Breezy’s girl is a ride or die even though their love story doesn’t always end well. With little rebuttal she’s endured the online bullies and gossipy media outlets for years.
“They make up all kind 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:
However the days of her being quiet are pretty much over. From Pac Sun endorsements and BET hosting gigs, she’s branding herself outside of just being Brown’s arm candy. Stopping by Just Keke, Kae was all smile to talk even when things took a turn for the Chris Brown water works.
“I’ve never dated a celebrity before so it was very new to me. Paparazzi and all that,” she said as she discussed the case of the ex drama.
“With Rihanna—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? But, however…in this case my boyfriend is a celebrity who’s ex-girlfriend is an even bigger [celebrity]…Do you know what I’m saying? So, not only am I fighting a battle with her, I’m fighting a battle with her 14 million fans or however else. So, imagine how that feels for me when I gotta get on Twitter and I see a whole bunch of stuff…”
Ultimately she’s a tough girl to deal with Rih Rih’s darts and her navy’s even worse taunting. However she didn’t let any of the negatives get to her. It wasn’t until she discussed the (many) heartbreaks she’s endured while dating the love of her life, did Karrueche break down.
“Um, jeez. I guess I would say the heartbreak because it was a real situation…” she starts to cry while responding to Keke’s question on ‘what is the hardest to deal with’. “Yeah, it was a real life situation…”
Karrueche’s complete interview will air at 5pm today on Just Keke on BET. Until then check out excerpts from her interview below.
