Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran's relationship has been pretty inconsistent since the pair first started dating in 2011. Their dramatic past has included several breakups and Chris Brown's romantic reunion with Rihanna in 2012.

Chris Brown may have reconciled with his sometimes-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, but talk is growing that the singer is still stuck on his former flame Rihanna.

Brown and model/singer Tran led many to believe they’d parted ways when they recently purged their individual Instagram accounts of all photos of each other. But just a few days later, the couple squashed the split talk when they were spotted out together on July 13 at the Hollywood Hennessy Party in Los Angeles.

The couple has faced an extremely dramatic last few years, marked by numerous reported breakups. But Radar Online reports a source speaking with the site says Tran and Brown have a bond that keeps bringing them back together.

“Karrueche can’t stay away from Chris because they’re young and in love. “She just can’t shake it and nor can he,” the source told Radar. “I think they are just really drawn to one another. They care about each other. It’s why you go back to something you know isn’t good for you.”

When it comes to Brown’s relationship with pop star Rihanna, the source added that Brown and Rihanna’s past only confuses the situation.

“Rihanna keeps going back to him because she’s a glutton for punishment and he was probably her first real love,” the source said. “He will always be tied to Rihanna and they will always have a connection.”

Though it seems like Brown may be taking advantage of the ladies, the source said that he does indeed have an emotional and physical connection to them. The source added that Brown and Tran just have a “weird relationship” and that they care a great deal for each other.

Brown and Rihanna publicly reunited in late 2012 and continued to spend time together throughout the early part of last year. But their romance was short-lived, and Tran quickly made her way back into the singer’s heart.
