‘I Do Love Him’: Karrueche Tran Opens Up About The Rihanna And Chris Brown Love Triangle

The über public love triangle between Chris Brown, Rihanna and Karrueche Tran has been playing out for some time now, with each new revelation being more emotional than the next. While many were happy to see Chris and Rih Rih united, you can’t help but feel for the odd girl out, who could be either Karrueche or Rihanna, depending on what day it is, as Chris seems to be doing a lot of back and forth. While we don’t really have to wonder how Rihanna feels about it all because she makes it quite obvious; the other woman in this triangle, with the exception of a few sub tweets has been fairly quiet about all of this, until now, that is. Karrueche recently discussed the drama in a very candid interview with Vibe. Check out some of what she had to say.

On whether or not it feels awkward to still work with Chris:

At the end of the day, he will always be a friend. We’ll always care about each other. We won’t allow that to interfere. Our business is business.

On if Chris is the person she wants to spend the rest of her life with:

I do care about him and I do love him. Family is very important to me, and I’ve always put it in my mind to remember that. For me, I’d love to meet somebody and grow and build a foundation, but I don’t want to even think about marriage right now. I can’t even get a clothing line out.

On if she feels it will ever become too hard to maintain their friendship:

I don’t know. I’m not sure. I’ve been on a rollercoaster for the past year so who knows?

On being open to sitting down with both Chris and Rihanna:

For everybody, emotionally, that would just be way too much. I’m a very mature person so if the time ever did come where we would need to sit down and talk, I’d do it. I’m a mature person. I can work it out but that would be a lot. (Pause) Yeah, it would be a lot.

On if she’s currently happy with her love life:

I mean at the time, but right now of course not. It’s a lot going on but it could be a lot worse. And that’s how I look at life. I take it for what it is. I move forward, grow from it and at this point, that’s what I’m doing. I’m not gonna sit and dwell and become consumed in that negativity because I could very much be that person, especially when things are so public and so thrown in my face. But like I said, things can be much worse. So I’m good.

Karrueche seems to have a fairly decent head on her shoulders and we certainly can’t fault her for continuing to make her money with Chris. We’re sure  there’s a lot to the story that the public is unaware of, but, we hope she recognizes that she deserves a whole man, not part of one and finds a way to move on with her life.

What do you think of how Karrueche has been handling the drama thus far?

    Why Chris though? Leave clowns at the circus and move on. I’m tired of hearing about these kids trying to be grown ups.

    Give her a break…. Considering the public scrutiny & embarrassment she has endured…she seems to be handeling things with grace and maturity. Why not capitalize off the situation.Turn a negative into a positive.You go girl!!

  • she seems like she’s lost, girl move on because you are gonna be the one hurting in the longrun..

    I like Karrueche, nothing against her. I thought she was good for Chris because she wasn’t famous and after all he’d been through, it may have been best for him to date a girl who wasn’t a celebrity. But I have noticed that since Karrueche and Chris aren’t together, people feel bad for her, but when she was with Chris, people shaded her and made fun of her name. If the public and the media would have let Chris and Rih work out their issues back in 2009, there would be no “love triangle” and we wouldn’t know about Karrueche.

    We all knew Chris and Rih would get back together eventually, ESPECIALLY after Rih’s interview with Oprah. Their relationship never ran its course, and it until it does, that’s when they can move on.

  • I like Chris and RiRi better…….dont really know who this girl is besides one of CB women along with hundreds more sooooo…get money and F everything else too many men out here to have drama over someone else’s…. #Reboundppl always suffer in the end…smh…

    I’m sorry but why is this news and WHO CARES?! Did someone died today, report that, not this garbage. People will do anything for media attention.

  • “I can’t even get a clothing line out.” This says it all. She’s not real. Rihanna is wild but she loves Chris. She’s not out to get anything from him.

  • why is anyone even interviewing her??? i can’t stand ppl who try to be celebrities and they’ve done nothing to “celebrate” about. she used to sleep with chris brown, big woop! move on girlfriend, chris and rhi are always gonna be doin something on the side no matter who they’re with. they’re both immature and emotionally unstable so be glad to find that out now before your life got ruined.

    I’m sorry, but I didn’t get level headed from anything she said. It sounds coached and sad because for everything she’s saying nice, it’s not being reciprocated imo.

    • pretty1908

      right ! I don’t see the level headedness in playing second wheel or dating a man with a violent history but hey we alll need money whoops i meant love

      • IllyPhilly

        LOL. True.

  • Pivyque

    I must admit, I am rooting for Rihanna and Chris. I like this girl, she’s cute and she seems to have a good head on her shoulders. Maybe they will get back with each other after his Rihanna phase dies down. I feel like Chris and Rihanna are so fired up to do this because there are so many people against it. As soon as we accept it, they may not be so fired up…

  • AnonyChick

    This girl seems so sweet and level-headed. I don’t understand the hate/shade she gets, just because she happened to fall in love with CB. Rihanna’s fans (+ Rihanna herself) stay going hard at her for no reason. What has she actually done wrong, except fall in love with the wrong person? I can’t imagine dealing with what she’s dealing with, under public scrutiny.

  • JaneDoe

    I like her.. I think she handles the situation well and is moving on with her life. Ppl can say all day what they would do in the situation but its always different when your the actual person living it.

  • pickneychile

    Dang can I just say how thankful I am to NOT be in the public eye like that? I can’t even imagine having other people all up in my relationship/past relationship like that. She seems mature so good luck to her in the healing process.

    • pretty1908

      I agree, but I think any normal person would shy away from interviews and refuse to discuss their love. I like Kae, but I never understood why she is relevant. I know that she is a stylist, but who has she styled other than Chris. I am over people being famous for dating , banging, or getting pregnant by another famous person. Can we please bring the talent back?

      • yes, THANK YOU!!! exactly what i’m saying.

      • SunshineBlossom

        Yes lawd!!!! *Reverend Jenkins from Jamie Foxx show voice*


    Rihanna delusional stans are too hard on this gurl…let this girl live!!
