Is history repeating itself for Rihanna and Karrueche Tran? Years after both ladies were in back-and-forth relationships with Chris Brown, RiRi’s new man, Karim Benzema, is reportedly cheating on her with Kae!
Rihanna, 27, just can’t seem to escape Karrueche Tran! The 27-year-old model has allegedly been hooking up with the singer’s new boyfriend, Karim Benzema, 27 — do we have another love triangle on our hands?!
“Rihanna is Karim’s main chick, but Karrueche is is side chick,” Life & Style reports. “He’ll bring Rihanna to party with his friends and sleep over at his L.A. rental. [And] he’ll have his driver pick [Karrueche] up and bring her to him at a hotel.”
Sigh. Don’t forget, Rihanna and Karrueche have both dated Chris Brown, 26, and things got very complicated in 2012, when Breezy and RiRi rekindled a friendship three years after he physically abused her before the Grammy Awards. Chris and Kae broke up, and in Jan. 2013, he admitted he was dating his ex again, but they split just months later.
After that, Chris and Karrueche were in an on-and-off relationship for years, finally coming to an end this spring, when news broke that the singer had cheated with Nia Guzman and fathered a daughter, Royalty. Still, while Karrueche claims she’s done with Chris for good, she’s also admitted that she “doesn’t know” what the future holds.
Meanwhile, Rihanna is super into her new man, but that doesn’t mean she won’t always hold a torch for Chris. “Rihanna does like Karim and enjoys him a lot,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He treats her well and he’s such a stud in everything he does. She told him she won’t break his heart, but she did tell him she’ll always love Chris.”
