It may not have seemed like Chris Brown was thinking about Karrueche Tran too much at the BET Awards on June 28, but HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that part of his acceptance speech at the show was actually a subtle diss at his ex!
Chris Brown, 26, is SO over Karrueche Tran, 27. The singer even threw some shade at his ex while accepting an award at the BET Awards on June 28, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. The diss was super subtle, so here’s the scoop on which part was directed at Karrueche!
Karrueche dressed in a super hot ensemble for the show, but she barely even attracted Chris’ attention with the revenge look. “He knew she was there, but he didn’t think about it too, too much,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “There was so much love in the BET atmosphere, that it overpowered her negativity.”
So instead of making a super obvious or public reference to Kae, Chris made sure to include a very subtle dig while accepting an award on stage (he won 3 overall). “Chris made it a point to say, ‘To know me is to love me. If you ain’t with us, so what,’ and that was directed at Karrueche,” our insider explains. “He doesn’t care about her anymore. He’s investing his time into those who love him and care about him and get him.”
But Chris isn’t the only one who’s over this relationship — Karrueche is so done, too. In fact, at the show, she was even overheard dishing to friends about how she felt about being in the same room as her ex. “She was walking back to her spot with a few other people. One of her girlfriends said, ‘You know Chris is down there,'” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “And Karrueche literally said, ‘You can sit me at the top [of the arena] because I don’t want to see his a**.”
Chris Brown And Rihanna’s Sweet BET Awards Reunion
While things don’t seem to be going great between Chris and Kae, the “Liquor” singer did have a positive moment with another one of his exes, Rihanna, before the show. She even showed up to watch some of his rehearsal! “Rihanna didn’t walk the red carpet, but she did see Chris backstage,” an insider revealed. “It was very brief and absolutely no one was allowed back there to see them. She told him to have a good show, watched about a minute or two of the rehearsal, and then left.”
Then, RiRi was even singing along while Chris took the stage! “Rihanna wasn’t trying to be sexual with Chris when she saw him, but she wanted to tell him how proud she is of him,” our source added. “After everything he’s gone through, he’s still pushing forward, making music, and the best part is — he’s a proud father.” To hear more about Chris Brown, Rihanna and Karrueche Tran, head over to iTunes and download the HollywoodLife podcast for free!
