Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown: Are they together again, or are they not? Dating rumors have swirled since the moment the model broke up with the “Loyal” singer in a public Twitter post in March, but despite all the speculation, Tran said Wednesday she is as single as it gets.
“I am 100 percent single,” Tran, 27, told Big Boy (Kurt Alexander, a DJ) on his show on REAL923LA (KRRL-FM). “There are a few dudes trying to make their pass. I’m really just trying to focus on me.” She didn’t mention if one of those guys were trying to “make their pass” was Brown, though.
Tran did, however, open up about her ex. During the interview, she recalled the moment she found out that Brown had fathered a love child, Royalty, with model Nia Guzman. “Yeah. When it hit TMZ, I was like ‘Oh, okay. Ugh.’ I called him. I cussed him out, and I was like [I’m done]. You know, because after the whole Rihanna thing, it’s been like a year or whatever — we’ve been trying to fix what was broken, and that was just the icing on the cake,” she told Big Boy.
Even though Brown was seeing Tran and Rhianna at the same time, Tran doesn’t harbor ill feelings for the “Diamonds” star. “We just dated the same guy, and that’s kind of what it is. It’s always a competition thing and they compare us, but she is Rihanna. She’s a pop star and she’s beautiful and she makes great music, and I’m just me and I’m growing and working into myself,” she said.
Tran's tone was markedly different in March, when she sat down with life coach Iyanla Vanzant for an interview on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN channel. At that time she told Vanzant she still loved her ex and wanted him to change.
