Karrueche Tran didn’t acknowledge Chris Brown’s presence when they ran into each other at Nylon's Midnight Garden party at the Coachella Music Festival Friday, Hollywood Life reported. The model was dancing in front of her ex-boyfriend but would not make eye contact at the bash, held in Bermuda Dunes, California.
“Chris was at a table, while she was parading herself on the dance floor having a great time. Neither spoke [to the] other, but it was like there was an elephant in the room that couldn’t be addressed,” a source told Hollywood Life. “There was one cursory glance Chris gave, but you could tell he was mightily peeved that she didn’t come to him to say hello.”
Tran was with actress friend Christina Milian and didn't let Brown ruin her time. “Karrueche looked really great, and she knew she would push Chris’ buttons by doing this. It was almost like she was dancing for him, but not even acknowledging he was there,” the insider said. “It was a very awkward situation. Karrueche wouldn’t even look at Chris at the party.”
Tran, 26, and Brown, 25, have been in an on-again, off-again relationship for years. The couple called it quits for good when Tran discovered the R&B star had a secret love child, 9-month-old Royalty.
In a March 4 tweet, she confirmed that Brown had conceived a child with another woman and ended her tumultuous relationship: “Listen. One can only take so much. The best of luck to Chris and his family. No baby drama for me.”
But during a tell-all interview with life coach Iyanla Vanzant, Tran explained she still has feelings for Brown. “I still love him,” she said. “If he were to change, we’d be in a better place. But that’s the problem.”
The interview supposedly was “gut-wrenching” for Brown to watch, so seeing Tran dance in front of him without addressing him must have been hard too.
