Fresh off his recent split from Rihanna, Chris is now back in a relationship with Karrueche. With all this back-and-forth, does this mean he’s really love with both women?
Chris Brown has had tumultuous (to say the least) relationships with both Rihanna and Karrueche Tran, repeatedly breaking up with one and going back to the other. He even posted a video in Oct. 2012 saying he was in love with both of them! Experts tell HollywoodLife.com that Rihanna and Karrueche fulfill different needs in Chris that he may not be able to find in just one woman.
Chris Can Be In Love With Both Rihanna & Karrueche
According to Carole Lieberman, M.D., psychiatrist and author of Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets, Chris can be in love with both women simultaneously because of reasons he sees in them individually:
Chris can be in love with both of them at the same time for different reasons. Rihanna is the sexy bad girl who he feels more passionate about, while Karrueche is the nurturing good girl who he feels safer with. Both women fill a role for him. He’s afraid to let his guard down with Rihanna because he knows that she’s likely to break his heart, whereas he feels more secure with Karrueche, even if she isn’t as exciting.
Dr. Cooper Lawrence, PhD, also agreed that Chris could be in love with both women and that this type of situation happens more often than you think:
Of course it’s possible, people do it all the time. Usually it means that each relationship is at a different stage and that each fulfills different needs. It’s more honest than dating one woman, pretending to be “exclusive” then cheating on her.
Chris’ Confession Doesn’t Mean He’s Over Rihanna
Chris may seem to be officially done with Rihanna and be committed to Karrueche this time around, but Dr. Lieberman notes that this doesn’t mean he isn’t still in love with Rihanna:
Karrueche shouldn’t do a victory dance just yet. Chris and Rihanna are still drawn to each other like moths to a flame.
So HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Chris is in love with both Rihanna and Karrueche? Will Karrueche and Chris last? Let us know what you think!
