"I'm Fighting a Battle with Rihanna": Karrueche Tran Opens Up on the Chris Brown Tug-of-Love
Karrueche Tran has poured out her heart about her battle with Rihanna over Chris Brown in a revealing new TV interview.
In a taped chat with actress-turned-chat show host Keke Palmer, which will air in America on Wednesday (16 July), Karrueche, 26, admits dating a celebrity is not all fun - especially when you're following in the footsteps of one of the world's most popular women.
She explains, "In this case, my boyfriend is a celebrity, whose ex-girlfriend is an even bigger (one)... Not only am I fighting a battle with her, I'm fighting a battle with her 14 million fans. So imagine how that feels for me. They (fans) make up all kinds of crazy stuff and they know nothing about me... Because I stay so mute sometimes, that leaves open space for them to say whatever they want."
Chris dumped Karrueche in 2012 to get back with Rihanna but he returned to his ex in 2013 when the romance with RiRi broke down.
Chris Brown and Rihanna have had a crazy on-off relationship
Karrueche admits the break-up was tough on her - she fought back tears during the Just Keke taping when Palmer asked her about the worst part of not being in Brown's life.
She said, "The heartbreak, because it was a real situation."
Chris and Karrueche apparently split again recently after the R'n'B star posted a racy photo of the model on Instagram, showing off her behind in a thong.
She wrote, "The difference between you and I is that my love is unwavering. You have shattered my heart, but you have not shattered my love."
