Things are over between Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran for GOOD this time, and to help cope, Kae is focusing solely on her new acting career! And she’s even channeling the ‘anger and emotions’ she feels toward her ex to help!
She may not be with Chris Brown, 26, anymore, but Karrueche Tran has big plans for a future on her own! The 27-year-old is just beginning her work as an actress, and says she’s planning to pour herself into her new career instead of focusing on the breakup. Plus, the “anger” she feels toward Chris will come in handy when she needs to channel her “bitchy” character!
Karrueche is currently starring in the StyleHaul web series Vanity, in which she’s gotten a chance to work alongside Denise Richards. And since Kae’s character in the show is a “bitch” (her words, not ours!), she has a lot of emotion to build off of after everything that went down between her and Chris this year.
“That’s not me in person,” she tells JetMag.com, of her character, Vanessa. “I have a lot of anger and emotions built up so, again, I’m able to use that as therapy and really get it out with my character. It’s a lot of fun and I love playing her.”
It also doesn’t hurt that the show is giving Kae something to do in order to keep busy and distracted amid the drama. “It helps to block out all the noise,” she says. “When I have all this drama going on in my personal life and unfortunately, it’s all over the media, I can just work and put my time and energy into that. You can’t go wrong with working hard.”
Until now, it seemed Karrueche had been perfectly content with simply being Chris Brown’s ladylove, but now that she’s found her passion, she’s come to realize how she’s so much more. “I’m just really happy and blessed, living in this moment and embracing it,” she gushes. “Because I was at a point in my life where, I guess you can say, I was lost, an didn’t really know what I wanted to do. And now I’ve found something that I love for a career — modeling and acting. I’m just really happy and I can only go up from here!”
Chris & Karrueche’s Tumultuous 2015
We’re so glad Karrueche has finally found something she’s passionate about, besides Chris. It’s certainly been a drama-filled few months for the couple ever since she learned he had cheated with Nia Guzman, 31, and fathered a child, Royalty, 1. But things really came to a head earlier this month, when she and Chris got into a massive screaming fight…and the cops were called!
After the argument, Chris went on record with Ryan Seacrest to discuss the relationship, and Karrueche was not having it. She blasted her ex on Instagram, and seems to have really been able to stay away from him ever since. Let’s see how long it will last this time, though — Stay strong, Karrueche!
