All eyes were on Chris Brown when he showed up to the 2015 Billboard Music Awards with none other than his daughter, Royalty. Not only were fans proud of Breezy, but HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned that so was his ex, Karrueche Tran.

Chris Brown, 26, took a giant step forward when he hit the red carpet on May 17 at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards with his leading lady, Royalty, 11 months. Was that step a bit too much for his ex Karrueche Tran to handle though?

Karrueche Tran: Her Feelings Seeing Chris & Royalty On The BBMAs Carpet

“Karrueche can’t knock Chris for taking his daughter with him to the Billboard Awards,” a insider tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “That was a very stand-up thing for him to do and she’s proud he did that. She saw pictures of them together and it made her smile and hurt at the same time.”

Our source went on to say, “While Royalty is completely innocent, seeing her reminds her that Chris cheated on her and broke her heart all at the same time. Karrueche’s hurt and it’s Chris’ fault and no one else. Her anger is directed toward Chris and Chris only.” That’s understandable, that’s a lot to mentally take in. We applaud her for not taking it out on Royalty.

“She wishes she could stop being angry at him,” the insider added. “Sometimes she can, sometimes she can’t. Her emotions are wide ranging and she’s dealing with them the best she can.”

It sounds like she’s making progress. So, could this mean a reconciliation is going to happen quicker than we think?

Karrueche Sent Royalty A Birthday Gift

Karrueche has zero obligation to Chris or his daughter, but HollywoodLife.com learned exclusively that she took the high road and did something super sweet for the little girl.

“Karrueche’s well aware she shares the same birth month as Royalty,” an insider previously told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “She wants Chris to know that she’s very proud of him for manning up and taking responsibility for his daughter.”

The source added, “Karrueche already purchased Royalty a small gift. She bought her the cutest little Vietnamese natural agarwood elastic string bracelet. Karrueche got one on her first birthday too. In her culture, it brings luck and good health.”
