Last week we told you that Karrueche Tran had officially confirmed her split from on-again, off-again boyfriend, Chris Brown. After she stuck with him through a rather extensive rehab stint, many wondered what possibly could have contributed to their breakup. However, according to the folks over at the New York Daily News, the reason for this breakup shares a common factor with all of their other breakups—Chris’ other on-again, off-again girlfriend, Rihanna.
Sources claim that while Karrueche was playing the doting girlfriend during Chris’ 90-day stint at a Malibu rehabilitation facility, he was also reconnecting with Rih Rih. Insiders go on to claim that in January, the “Unapologetic” singer hopped on a private plane and shot over to Florida to visit Chris in rehab. The two reportedly spent a few hours together and then Rih Rih left quickly.
According to reports, Karrueche wasn’t too thrilled to learn about their little reunion so she dumped him. Karrueche has yet to comment on the rumors and whether or not there is any truth to them. There may certainly be more to the story, but we honestly wouldn’t be completely shocked if Chris and Rih’s seemingly never-ending saga played a role in the latest breakup. History does seem to have a way of repeating itself.
Do you think Karrueche should stay away from Chris for good this time?
After Being A ‘Ride Or Die’ For Chris Brown Through Rehab And Legal Drama, Karrueche Says They’re Done
Despite all that Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran have been through over the last few years, including Brown’s time away from the spotlight in rehab, and going back and forth with the embattled singer to court (and dealing with him leaving her for a short-lived rekindled romance with Rihanna), it looks like the couple are calling it quits again.
There were rumors going around earlier in the week via the New York Post’s Page Six that Brown broke up with Tran and started text messaging Rihanna all over again. However, we weren’t too sure about that story. But then a rumor also spread that Tran was bouncing back from the possible break up with Brown with Detroit Pistons star Brandon Jennings. Well, Tran took to Twitter today to say that she’s single as a dollar bill, and not dating anyone–not even Brown, confirming that the two have gone their separate ways…for now at least.
Something that has also been noticed is that recent pictures Tran posted to Instagram with Brown, including the two canoodling on Valentine’s Day are gone from her page. And after rumors spread about a split, Tran posted a photo said that, “Treat your girl right,” but that photo is now gone as well. Tran spoke about her “unconditional love” for Chris Brown just late last year:
It’s different,” explained Karrueche. “And its something that a lot of people won’t and will never understand, which is why I get so much flack and hate because you know looking from the outside in it looks messy. Nobody knows the real story, nobody knows what I went through so.”
Some might think Brown (who has returned to posting photos here and there on Instagram and will have to continue with anger management rehab) is trying to get back with Rihanna, but seeing everything he’s had to go through in the last few months, he could very well want to be on his own while he tries to get things together. Whoever he’s with, we just want to see him drama free!
By day, they are actors, but by night these 15 male stars could be seen on the small screen moonlighting as one-time video vixens.
Terrence Howard has been working in front on the cameras playing different roles since 1992’s Jacksons: An American Dream. He may be best known for hit movies such as Crash and Hustle & Flow but he also has a few music video roles under his belt. In Ashanti’s “Foolish,” Howard plays her criminal minded ex who gets caught cheating. The video earned three MTV VMA nominations in 2002. Howard also played opposite Mary J. Blige in her “Be Without You” video where she just couldn’t be without him.

With a new year comes a whole new set of enviable Hollywood figures. While some of the lovely ladies on our list have become mainstays in the fashion, beauty and fitness worlds already, there are certainly a few new women the world should take notice of. And though staring at these gorgeous women might fill us with a little bit of jealousy, we’re also hoping it kicks us into high gear with our resolution to get it right, get it tight in 2014. So without further adieu, here’s a look at 2014’s hottest celebrity figures.
Eminem and Rihanna will follow up their recent No. 1 hit “The Monster” with a summer tour.
The pair will hit the road together for The Monster Tour this August, XXL has reported (and Eminem has tweeted).
The trek will hit stadiums in New York, Los Angeles, and his hometown of Detroit, Eminem told XXL.
Em and Rihanna’s latest collab, “The Monster,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in December 2013. The pair previously had a No. 1 hit together with “Love The Way You Lie,” which spent seven weeks at the top in 2010.

Yesterday was Rihanna’s 26th birthday, and in her 26 years, she’s seen and done quite a bit. She has tied Michael Jackson for the third spot for most number one singles in Billboard Chart History. She has had a number one album (for Unapologetic), and a sold-out tour with the Diamonds World Tour, and she’s partied all over the world. But for her birthday, she decided to keep things low-key–well, as low-key as you can get for someone like Ri Ri. The Bajan beauty, her friends and her team celebrated in Aspen. They did some skiing, smoking, drinking, chilling in the jacuzzi, having a play photo shoot for Instagram purposes, and smoking…and repeat. Now that’s a birthday!
Check out the images she shared of her big day, chilling in a hot tub in the snow and getting her photo shoot on in a white hot bikini. Happy belated birthday, girl!
Happy Birthday Rihanna! Today the woman we know as Bad Gal Ri Ri turns the big 2-6 and one thing that’s for sure is the woman has about as many controversial hair choices as she does raunchy dance moves on stage and suspect magazine interviews. Since it’s Ri Ri’s bday we thought we’d focus on the good, though, so we’re counting down Rihanna’s best hair moments starting with her introduction to the world back in the mid-2000s. Let us know which look is your favorite.
“There’s People With Way More Talent Than I When It Comes To Singing”: Rihanna On Her Talent, Influence
In the March issue of Vogue, which will be Rihanna’s third cover for the American version of the magazine since her first in 2011, writer Plum Sykes chats with the mega-star about fashion, her talent, and why she flocks to Instagram so much. The interview is a very colorful one, as Skyes meets up with the singer to be styled by her at the Alexander Wang boutique in NYC. In between trying on capes and men’s leather bombers, we get to read Rihanna being herself–honest and silly (in a good way):
On Her 11 Million Instagram Followers:
“Instagram is my way of communicating to the world,” she says. “When I’m on tour, I keep fans in the loop. I don’t really think about it too much. Literally, I can be sitting in a car and be bored, so I do a selfie just because I’m bored. Or if my dog is running around in circles and I think that’s funny, I put it on Instagram.” As for who Rihanna follows on Instagram? “I follow girls from the Middle East. It gives you ideas.”
Why She Thinks Fashion Sense Is A Big Part Of Her Success–Not Really Her Voice:
“It’s not all down to my voice. There’s people with way more talent than I when it comes to singing. Bigger voices. But people want to know who you are. Fashion is a clear indication, a way to express your attitude, your mood.”
Ri Ri On Her Ever-Changing Hair And Her Love Of Weaves:
“It’s not my hair, but the girl who donated it, she’s the bomb,” says Rihanna. “Black girls never let anyone see this,” she adds, pulling apart the locks at the back of her head to show me the intricate workings of the false hair, which is woven into a net attached to her own. “I have two main hair people I work with. They’re always with me. I’m like, ‘I’m bored! I wanna change my hair!’ That’s the good thing about a weave. You can do whatever with it.”
Going Against What Folks Consider “Normal”:
“I don’t go out of my way to be a rebel or to have that perception, but a lot of the decisions I make, a lot of the direction I want to move, is against the grain, or against society’s tight lane, and I’m aware of that sometimes. It might not be fitting with the norm, but that’s OK for me.”
As I said before, I really dig her honesty in this interview. It’s pretty refreshing, right? Check out the full interview with Sykes at Vogue.com, see the images from her gorgeous Vogue spread on the next two pages and let us know what you think!
On the heels of her HIV/AIDs campaign with MAC’s Viva Glam brand, Rihanna extends another branch of activism. The “Unapologetic” singer highlighted P6, a gay rights Russian campaign on her social media accounts, over the weekend. CNN reports P6, short for Principle 6, is a movement against Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law. After tweeting her support for P6, equality group All Out tweeted the singer:

Prior to the Winter Olympics, Russia received criticism for their policies against homosexuality. The Huffington Post reported in June 2013, the Russian parliament passed a law against educating children about homosexual rights. Recently, the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev banned foreign same-sex couples from adopting Russian children. Medvedev also decreed singles from nations where same-sex marriage is legal cannot adopt Russian children, as well.
Despite these absurd laws, Russia’s President Vladimir stated homosexual relationships are not criminalized:
“We don’t outlaw anything and don’t nab anyone. That’s why you can feel safe and free here, but please leave our children in peace.”
In other words, do what you please but don’t influence dem babies.
What are your thoughts on Rihanna’s support of P6?
Back in 2012 singer Robyn “Rihanna” Fenty filed a lawsuit against her former accounting firm, Berdon LLP, for mismanaging her finances between 2005 and 2009. According to her lawsuit, the firm’s negligence caused her to be audited by the IRS for the tax years of 2008 to 2010. The suit also alleged that the company failed to uncover millions of dollars in unpaid royalties.
“Despite having earned millions of dollars in revenues during Berdon’s tenure Fenty learned that her net income after payment of expenses and exorbitant commissions to defendant was a fraction of that amount,” the suit reads.
According to TMZ, Rih Rih is now alleging that the firm’s poor planning left her “effectively bankrupt” by the end of 2009. In newly filed court documents, she explains that at the start of 2009, she had $11 million in cash and by the close of the year, she was disturbed to learn that she only had $2 million. As if that weren’t enough, she says that during this time her expenses doubled, which left the “Rude Boy” singer in an extremely tight financial bind.
How does one blow through $9 million in a single year, you ask? Well according to the lawsuit, Rihanna is claiming that her accountant told her that it was okay for her to purchase a home priced between $7 and 7.5 million. After following the firm’s advice, she learned of her financial misfortune and was forced to sell the home at a $2 million loss. The suit adds that the firm failed to inform her that her 2009 Last Girl On Earth Tour was actually losing money.
Thankfully, five years later Rih Rih seems to have rebounded from the tumultuous financial year. She is currently worth an estimated $43 million. It’s going to be quite interesting to see how this lawsuit plays out. As always, we’ll keep you posted as further details emerge.
