Chris Brown and ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran recently shocked fans when they were recently spotted with one another in Long Beach, Calif., promoting his Black Pyramid clothing line.
Despite multiple appearances with ex-girlfriend Rihanna who he publicly broke things off with Tran to pursue a friendship with, Brown seemed to switch gears when Rihanna recently took a trip to Ireland. Last Saturday, Brown and Tran were spotted driving in a Porsche together and arriving at the Agenda Trade show to promote his Black Pyramid clothing line.
While Brown has supported Tran's upcoming clothing line "The Kill" by wearing the apparel to a number of appearances in recent months, his ex-girlfriend was all smiles as pictures surfaced on multiple media platforms and social networking websites with her in a Black Pyramid snapback hat.
On the day after their appearance at the trade show, Rihanna took to her Instagram page to release a text photograph that states, "Don't forget who you are. I am not a princess, I don't need saving. I'm a queen, I got this (expletive) handled."
Days before Brown's appearance with Tran, Rihanna was riding in the passenger seat of her Porsche which was being driven by Brown. While the pair were photographed stopping for a slurpee at a California deli, Rihanna also seemed to promote Brown's clothing line by wearing a cutoff Black Pyramid shirt.
Fans reacted to the news of Brown and Tran reuniting to promote his clothing line at the recent trade show. One fan threatened violence to Brown on Twitter by writing, "I'm (going to) punch him."
Another fan had an opinion about Tran appearing with Brown to promote his clothing line despite him spending Christmas and New Year's day with Rihanna.
"I think Karrueche could care less about Chris Brown & Rihanna," the person tweeted. "She just (wants to) stay in the media …"
In an interview with XXL Magazine, Brown publicly admitted that he was struggling with his love life.
"One thing people often want me to talk about is my public love life. When it comes to my love life, the perception seems as though I am a player. But that's not true ... love is something I am still learning," Brown said in the publication's December/January issue. "It's just an obstacle that I haven't yet mastered. I think that's my biggest hurdle in life."
