Chris and Karrueche were spotted cozying up on Oct. 18 at ‘Annex’ magazine’s anniversary issue party — but don’t call them a couple! HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively that they are strictly friends with benefits and nothing more.
Sometimes being friends with benefits works — and for Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran, that’s the case! At Riviera 31 at Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles, they looked awfully close, kissing in a corner and even leaving together!
Karrueche Tran & Chris Brown Cozy Up At Party
Karrueche, 25, and Chris, 24, have been friends for a long time — and when they cuddled up at the Annex magazine party, it sparked rumors that they were actually dating. However, that is not the case!
“I mean, they’re friends with benefits and have been for a long time now. Yeah, they kiss but that’s PG compared what they do behind closed doors,” a source close to the “Fine China” singer told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “They are very ‘go with the flow,'” another source told us. “They don’t need to be boyfriend/girlfriend, they just like being around each other in and out of the bedroom.”
And they aren’t afraid of showing that! “They were kissing, holding one another, laughing and genuinely enjoying each other’s company, even though they aren’t officially a couple,” the insider added.
“That’s what they do and nobody should be surprised,” the first source told us. “They had a good time at the party. They left together and did what they did and that’s it. He likes her but he’s not about to be in a committed relationship with anybody. They both like sh-t just the way it is. They’re friends with benefits and it works.”
Karrueche & Chris: Inside Their Honest Relationship
While Karrueche and Chris are only friends with benefits, that doesn’t mean they’re playing games with each other.
“He’s straightforward and honest with Karrueche,” a source told us. “For years, he thought he always had to lie to females and sneak around. But a wise G told him that if he’s ALWAYS honest, sh-t always works out for the best and females respect that. Since he’s been doing that, his life has been carefree.”
While there the duo also had a few beverages. “They sipped on specialty cocktails provided by Hennessy V.S and VIPs took home goodies courtesy of Sexy Hair.”
That’s so good to hear! Are you surprised that Karrueche and Chris are just friends with benefits?
