It was the world’s worst kept secret. Now Karrueche is opening up about how she found herself caught in a love triangle with ex Chris & his former girlfriend Rihanna in her revealing interview on OWN.
It’s almost like a plot-line for hit show Empire! Karrueche Tran, 26, appeared in front of OWN’s Iyanla Vanzant, in an interview set to air on Mar. 28, and the model couldn’t wait to talk dirt about ex -boyfriend Chris Brown, 25. Karrueche, who began dating the bad-boy pop star in 2011, recalled how she was caught in a bizarre love triangle — realizing that the “AYO” singer was cheating on him with his ex Rihanna, 27. Ouch!
Chris Brown On Karrueche Tran Interview: How She Found Out About Rihanna
“I didn’t want to believe it,” Karrueche told the life coach in an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey’s channel. “I was under the impression that it was a friend-type of… not a friend, but it wasn’t what it became to be.”
Karrueche then remembered how she came to learn that she wasn’t the only woman in Chris’ life – in painstaking detail. It was Christmas Day in 2012 and she was staying at his Los Angeles home when he told her he had to leave for a short moment. That’s when, just hours later, photos of Chris and Rihanna courtside at a Los Angeles Lakers game appeared online.
“I knew. I didn’t want to believe it, I loved him,” Karrueche admitted to Vanzant believing that she was being two-timed by love rat Chris.
Indeed, the courtside photo that incensed Karrueche, certainly showed there was something going on between Rihanna and Chris. She was spotted resting her head on his shoulder, while the pair were all smiles as they watched the Lakers. It was very suspect even then!
