Chris fans blasted Karrueche on May 26, saying she was ‘looking for attention’ by posting a pic of her bloody pic on Instagram. But Karrueche is ‘deeply bothered’ by the hate messages she has received since uploading the gory photo, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
Immediately after Karrueche Tran, 27, posted a picture of her bloody lip on Instagram, her followers started speculating that Chris Brown, 26, must have been responsible because he brutally battered Rihanna in 2009. The “Loyal” singer’s fans quickly came to his defense, however, and started lashing out at Chris’ ex for even posting such a photo. Did Karrueche do it for attention?
Karrueche Tran Reacts To Chris Brown’s Fans After Bloody Lip Pic Backlash
“First and foremost, Karrueche didn’t say, imply, or suggest that her lip had anything to do with anyone in particular. The way her lip looks is related to her work. That’s it and that’s all. The fact that anyone would think it’s something more than what it really is, deeply bothers her,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Obviously, Karrueche didn’t expect anyone to assume that Chris gave her a bloody lip. She simply wanted to share her daily experience — acting on set — with her fans and followers. But now, she’s “appalled” that anyone would think otherwise.
“In a country that prides itself on freedom, including freedom of speech, she’s absolutely appalled she’s getting such backlash and hatred after posting the pic. Her sole intention was to invite her followers inside her hectic work day,” our source adds.
