Chris Brown's love life continues to make headlines following his abrupt split from Rihanna in recent weeks and a new report claims to have uncovered why the singer is allegedly happier with Karrueche Tran.
In October Tran, 25, was reportedly left heartbroken when Brown, 24, admittedly ended their two-year relationship over Rihanna. In May the "Fine China" singer reconciled with Tran after ending his tumultuous relationship with Rihanna, 25, and a source claims he now feels far more content with the model.
"He's in charge of his relationships and calls the shots with Kae and she's down with that," a source told HollywoodLife.com, adding "[H]e's cool with where things are with her and so is she. It works out great."
Brown, who initially split with Rihanna in February 2009 following a domestic assault incident, continued to date the singer on-and-off months after. Sources claim Brown is more at ease with Tran because he allegedly has more freedom with the model in contrast with the Bajan singer.
"She wants too much from him. Rihanna wants him to be with her all the time, be on her tour, she wants [him] on lock," a source explained regarding why Rihanna and Brown did not work out.
In January Rihanna insisted that their rekindled relationship was "different" following the 2009 incident.
"We don't have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about s---. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don't want to lose that," Rihanna told Rolling Stone magazine.
Sources claim that while Rihanna was intent on making the relationship work out with Brown, but the singer's reluctance to end his association with Tran after their split ultimately became an issue. Brown and Tran allegedly stayed in contact after their October split for business purposes.
"[Rihanna] is jealous that he has a business with Kae. It wasn't like he was about to get [Karrueche] out his life just because Rihanna asked him to," a source said.
"Besides, Kae was down for [Chris] when Ri wasn't. She was his support system and that's something he won't forget," the source explained.
