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?
