Karrueche Tran, actress and model, sat down with Iyanla Vanzant on the OWN Network to discuss her recent breakup from Chris Brown.
Their on and off again relationship has played out on social media and we are not surprised that the breakup is too. Karrueche’s last and final challenge of her relationship happened when she found out that Chris Brown fathered a baby outside of their relationship. When asked how she found out about the baby she says, “Honestly, through social media.” Chris had been trying to reach out to her to explain in person, but he was too late. Karrueche had already learned about the baby mama drama online. She goes on to say, “My issue is with myself and with Chris. Not the baby, not the mother, not Rihanna, nobody. It’s me and him.”
Almost halfway through the interview, everything was shut down- YES, the entire interview came to a complete halt. Karrueche’s management team was not pleased with the direction of the interview. After a short break and a talk with Karrueche’s team and the show’s producers, the interview continues where some tears were shed, hugs were given and they parted ways.
Yup, thats about it. The entire process seemed like an attempt to further her career by creating even more for people to talk about. From the beginning of their relationship, every single move they made was documented on Twitter or Instagram without any regard to privacy- this is just another move.
Even Iyanla questioned her true intentions of wanting to speak on her show. She politely explains that Karrueche isn’t any different from homegirl down the street with the same drama and she. She then goes on to keep it REALLY real by saying that she is only on her couch because she dated a celebrity- Chris Brown. Karrueche nods in agreement, but it seemed that she really didn’t get a good grasp on anything Iyanla was breaking down to her throughout the entire process.
Through it all, Karrueche is a girl with a broken heart…and a career to build. With a coveted spot on primetime television and on the network owned by one of the worlds most powerful woman, do you think she used this platform as a way to catapult her acting and modeling career to the next level? Do you think you know more about Karrueche, or was this a failed attempt at more fame?
