Chris Brown has always been uncomfortable with Karrueche Tran flirting with other guys — except when it comes to Rob Kardashian! The singer isn’t threatened by their rumored romance at all, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY — probably because he knows Rob doesn’t stand a chance!
Chris Brown, 26, has a habit of threatening the other men in Karrueche Tran‘s, 27 life, but when it comes to her rumored new romance with Rob Kardashian, 28, he knows he has nothing to worry about. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Breezy isn’t threatened by the reality star in the slightest because he knows that would be a “serious downgrade” for Karrueche. Yikes!
“Chris is laughing, damn near crying, if anyone thinks he’s threatened by Rob,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “No disrespect to the brother, but Rob couldn’t land Karrueche if he were a pilot. For Kae to leave Chris and try to hook up with Rob would be a serious downgrade. And if there’s one thing Chris knows about Karrueche, it’s that she likes that Hollywood life and Rob can’t give her that. Him posting pictures of Karrueche is like whatever to Chris. He knows nothing sexual will ever happen between the two of them. He’d bet all of Royalty’s custom made cars — and they’re expensive — on that!”
To recap, rumors of a possible love connection between Rob and Karrueche first made headlines on Sept. 22 when the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star posted a screen shot of their conversation to Instagram, along with a sexy selfie that Karrueche appeared to have sent Rob during their convo. In the photo, a makeup-free Karrueche gives the camera a sultry, pouty look, showing off her glossed lips after her wisdom teeth surgery. Although that’s all we can see in the message thread, two blue bubbles prove Rob answered before and after she sent the pic. Of course, Rob did later take to Instagram to shut down the rumors, claiming the two are just friends and have known each other since high school. Still, we can’t help but notice the playful way Rob put Karrueche’s name in his phone: “Karroooooooooochieeeeeee.” Hmmm…
It is possible Rob was just trying to keep Chris off of his trail. The “Loyal” singer does have a habit of threatening men who get close to his ex-girlfriend after all. Marques Houston, 34, learned that the hard way when he commented on a picture of Karrueche showing off her butt on Instagram. The singer’s remark on Kae’s pic resulted in a response from one of Chris’ friends, and let’s just say, it did not end end well.
What do you think HollywoodLifers — Is something going on between Rob and Karrueche? Should Chris feel threatened by their “friendship?” Sound off below!
