Karrueche Tran Strips Down and Opens Up About Chris Brown Tabloid Frenzy
Karrueche Tran strips down — and opens up — for Rolling Out. The model, who poses topless and in flesh-colored underwear, talks to the outlet about finding herself in the middle of the Rihanna–Chris Brown saga, and dealing with media scrutiny she hadn’t anticipated.
“I first realized there was a change [when] more people would talk about me in blogs and such,” says Tran. ”And the paparazzi would take pictures and follow me when I wasn’t around Chris [Brown].”
“I was like ‘Chris is not here, why are you following me?’ But I was constantly seeing myself on blogs and websites. It was kind of weird,” says Tran.
Tran was the subject of endless webloid speculation, especially after Brown’s ex Rihanna re-entered the picture.
“The most challenging part about the attention was the negativity and the misconception from some people,” she explains. “People only see you in blogs and they think they know everything about your life. There are things that go public and everything that comes out is not the truth.”
Tran wants to move on. She says, “Honestly, all I want is happiness. There was a lot of dysfunction and negativity. I just want to be happy.”
