CLAIM: Chris Brown Dumped Karrueche Tran for His “Number One” Rihanna

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates


Not surprisingly, HollywoodLife got duped by MediaTakeOut’s bogus story about Chris Brown dumping Karrueche Tran — and took it up a notch.

As Gossip Cop reported on Thursday, Brown and Tran have NOT broken up.

But that doesn’t stop HollywoodLife from doing what the site’s done for months — speculating wrongly about a Brown reunion with ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Like a broken record, the trashy webloid has been spinning the same baseless story over and over again, filling the Internet with garbage about an imaginary Brown-Rihanna rekindling.

Now HollywoodLife is using the (busted) MediaTakeOut report of a Brown split with Tran (again: NOT true) as a jumping off point for a new batch of fake quotes claiming he’s not “bothered” by the “break-up” because Rihanna’s “Always Been His ‘Number One.'”

“[He’s] done with [Karrueche]…and the [gangster] pats about it is he [isn’t] even [tripping] over it,” one phony “source” tells the site, adding, “He was mad at first [that] she was talking to [Drake] and…she lied and said it was about some business s**t…”

The same HollywoodLife insider then says, “[You’ve got to] remember, he could get any bad a** girl he wants and he still loves Rihanna. She’s number one. Always has been, always will be.”


The webloid’s source then chimes, “Karruece was the sixth man, she was fresh off the bench when the main girl (Rihanna) and Chris had problems…[I’m not] being mean…because she knew her place.”

And we know HollywoodLife’s “place.”

At the bottom of the muck.

As Gossip Cop’s source close to Brown assures us once again, Brown and Tran are still very much together, and the HollywoodLife speculation about Rihanna is “not true.”
