MediaTakeOut couldn’t wait to wrongly link Chris Brown to a new love interest in the wake of his split from Karrueche Tran, and now the webloid is falsely doing the same with Tran. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust MediaTakeOut once again.

On Monday, the site blared in a characteristically sensational headline, “MTO EXCLUSIVE: It Looks Like Chris Brown’s EX Girlfriend Karrueche Has MOVED ON… And Now She’s Dating An ASIAN DUDE!!!” MediaTakeOut went on to write, “So word on the streets is that Karrueche has begun the process of dating again… now that she’s no longer with Chris Brown. She ran into an old friend at Sundaze Day Party in San Francisco this weekend, and the two seemed to hit it off REAL WELL.”

“We have MULTIPLE PICS of Karrueche, and the unknown Asian man. But after reading through his Instagram page, it’s clear that he’s NOT RELATED to Kae,” continued MediaTakeOut, which actually wrote this next sentence: “All Asians are NOT related, you know.” MediaTakeOut then editorialized, writing, “Karrueche is HALF ASIAN – her mother’s side. So it’s not all that SURPRISNG that she would get with an ASIAN DUDE – especially given all the HEART ACHE that Chris gave to her.”

Putting aside the ignorant comments and grammatical errors, MediaTakeOut still has NO IDEA what it’s talking about. The webloid can’t even NAME the guy pictured with Tran, admittedly calling him an “unknown Asian man,” and yet is convinced that Tran has “moved on with him.” Well, Gossip Cop CAN identify him. A rep for Tran exclusively tells Gossip Cop that the guy in question is a dedicated fan who attends Tran’s appearances in the Bay Area. “He isn’t her boyfriend. She has no boyfriend,” says the rep.

Gossip Cop is further told, “MediaTakeOut are doing what they do best: making up stories.” Of course, earlier this month, the site, also known as MediaFakeOut, wrongly claimed Brown had moved on with Candice Brook and then with Briona Mae. The webloid was wrong on both, and they’re wrong again now with Tran. Perhaps it’s time MediaTakeOut leaves the reporting on Brown and Tran to the professionals.
