While the cat – Rihanna’s – away, the mice did play. Karrueche went to Houston for the past weekend, Feb 16 and 17, at the same time that Chris Brown was in town. She had a ‘good time’ hanging with Chris, a source close to the situation tells Hollywoodlife.com exclusively.
Wow — the moment that Rihanna leaves town, jetting to London to launch her first fashion collection for River Island, Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown‘s ex-girlfriend, gets busy spending time with him. Now a source close to Karrueche insists that she will always have a “very special relationship” with Chris.
Hmm, we wonder what Rihanna will think of that “very special relationship” when she sees the photos of both Chris in Houston attending the All -Star Weekend and Karrueche also in Houston at the Sneaker Summit. Plus, a source confirms to HollywoodLife.com that Karrueche was definitely spotted at least visiting the private luxurious Houston Mansion that Chris Brown rented for the weekend.
Revealed: Chris Brown and Rihanna’s ‘Very Special Relationship’
“You know, Kae and Chris will always have a very special relationship,” a source close to the situation explains exclusively to Hollywoodlife.com. “Now as for the All Stars weekend, that’s one of the biggest parties of the year and Kae was there for that and for that and for her clothing line. So it wasn’t really all that secret that she was in town.”
As for why Karrueche keeps hanging out with Chris, even after he broke up with her and reunited with his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, the source explains. “If Chris didn’t want her around, he could have cut off all ties but that ain’t the case. She’s his business partner (in The Kill collection), they used to date and be intimate and they have chemistry between them,” he says. ” It isn’t always about sex. She actually has fun hanging around Chris and his pals. They’re fun, they do spontaneous things and she likes being in that circle. More power to her.”
Did Rihanna Know About Chris & Karrueche’s Plans To Hang Out?
Hey Rihanna, I bet she loves still being in Chris’s inner circle, but how do you feel? Karrueche apparently still wants Chris’ “friendship and if other stuff goes down, it comes with the territory”, says the source.
In other words, it doesn’t sound like Karrueche’s at all given up hope of re-igniting a romance in the future again with Chris.
While Chris wasn’t as blatant as taking Karrueche as his date to the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game, he didn’t exactly try to hide the fact that he was hanging out with Karrueche while Rihanna was away working.
The ball’s in your court, Rihanna. What do you think, HollywoodLifers -- should Rihanna be upset that Karrueche was spending time with Chris while she was away? Let me know.
