HollywoodLife.com has learned that while Karrueche doesn’t want credit, she was the one who got her on-again boyfriend Chris to see that he had an issue that required rehab.
Karrueche Tran was so afraid that Chris Brown would go to jail after his misdemeanor assault charge that she “bawled to him and told him to get help,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com. Thankfully, Chris listened to Karrueche’s impassioned plea and decided to enter rehab for anger management. Read on for all the EXCLUSIVE details.
Karrueche Tran On Chris Brown’s Treatment — She Pushed Him To Go To Rehab
Karrueche, 25, has always been a positive force in Chris’ life so it’s no surprise that she was the one who finally convinced him to seek professional help for his anger issues.
“Karrueche bawled to him and told him to get help because she doesn’t want to see him go to jail,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Chris, 24, values Karrueche’s opinion so much that he has decided to go to anger management “to talk about his childhood. He’s got a lot of built-up issues that only he knows and he wants and needs to get that off his chest. I’m sure he’s got things that Karrueche doesn’t even know about but that’s for him to talk about with a therapist.”
It sounds like Chris is really growing — and it’s all thanks to Karrueche. But she doesn’t want any special recognition for helping Chris see the light; she just wants him to get better.
“Karrueche is NOT trying to take credit for anything Chris does. She’s just encouraging her man to do each and every thing that he can to better himself,” the source says. “She cannot make him do one thing — all she can do is love him and tell him what she thinks is best.”
It looks like Karrueche is finally being rewarded for standing by her man, and we couldn’t be happier for her and Chris.

Chris Brown Kissing Karrueche Tran — Lovers Kiss & Make Up: ‘Always & Forever’
Chris and Karrueche split up right before his assault arrest on Oct. 27, but they’re back together and stronger than ever. Karrueche even posted an Instagram pic of the two of them kissing on Oct. 29, and it looks like she’s in it for the long haul because the caption reads: “Always & Forever ❤️.”
“Make no mistake, Chris needs her and she wants to be there for him,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She will be with him to make sure he’s cool. With these circumstances, they’re both putting old issues behind them.”
“At the end of the day, they had a misunderstanding but that’s not an issue now that he’s in this situation,” the source added.
Karrueche’s friends tell us she’s concerned for Breezy and his future and that she simply wants to be there to support him and help him get his life back on track.
“She wants to be there for him, to be a listening ear, to be a companion,” the source said. “She just wants to be there for him, with no expectations and nothing in return. It’s about him. She has nothing to gain.”
