Chris Brown may not be taking his latest alleged breakup too well. The 26-year-old has been putting on weight, and his well-sculpted sixpack seems to be a thing of the past. While partying in St. Tropez on Wednesday, Brown took his shirt off and his stomach was hanging over his boxers.
The added weight could be a result of stress, after he and Karrueche Tran reportedly broke up again recently. The two have been writing subliminal messages on Twitter recently, which may provide insight as to why they split. Brown tweeted this week, “Be careful who u take relationship advice from. Especially if they are single. They’re single for a reason! Lol #lonelyfacea—[sic].” This message was preceded by a tweet saying, “These hoes ain’t loyal but my fans damn sure are!”
Just weeks ago, Tran could not hold back her tears when speaking about Brown. On the talk show “Just Keke,” Tran expressed how she dealt with her newfound fame after beginning to date a famous artist.
“I've never dated a celebrity before, so it was very new to me. Paparazzi and all that,” she said, while adding that a “level head and positivity” helped her deal with the new experience.
“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?” she said.
“But in this case my boyfriend is a celebrity whose ex-girlfriend is an even bigger ... so, not only am I fighting a battle with her, I'm fighting a battle with her 14 million fans or however else,” Tran added.
Social media has certainly been cruel towards the young model, with Rihanna fans often trolling her Twitter and Instagram pages. “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 kind of crazy stuff and it's like they know nothing about me,” Tran continued. “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.”
Brown and Tran were together for close to two years before they split in 2012. Though they have since rekindled their romance, Tran and Brown are often on and off, and fans continuously encourage Brown to get back together with Rihanna.
