Karrueche Tran, clothing designer who rose to fame after a highly publicized relationship with R&B singer Chris Brown, held little back when speaking about her breakup, her feelings about Rihanna and her current feelings toward Brown.
Tran, 24-year-old designer of "The Kill," recently promoted her clothing line by promoting her brand in Atlanta, Ga. While in the city, Tran spent time with reality television star Shekinah Anderson of "T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle" to have a candid conversation about Brown that was filmed by Rolling Out Magazine.
After sitting down with Tran, Anderson immediately inquired about the context of her relationship with Brown.
"Regardless of what happens, we're still going to be friends," Tran admitted. "At the end of the day, he was my best friend and we have a business together so there's no way around it."
When asked about Brown's ex-girlfriend and singer Rihanna, who he has been photographed with lately, Tran had nothing negative to say.
"I mean, she's dope...I think she's dope," Tran said with a smile.
While Tran said she never expected to be involved with Brown romantically, she admitted that the entire ordeal was confusing. However, when Brown released a statement about breaking things off with Tran to pursue a relationship with Rihanna and followed up with the release of "The Real Chris Brown" video admitting his love for two women the designer admitted that it was not easy to deal with.
"I mean of course. Any breakup is hard regardless…stuck in the bed. I've had my moments but I put that all in the past," Tran told Anderson and Rolling Out Magazine.
Although there were rumors that Brown buying Tran a house to make up for breaking things off with her, she said that it never happened. Still, she said her ex-boyfriend knows that his actions were wrong.
"I mean he knows he's wrong. But things still happened the way it did," Tran said in Rolling Out. "That's on him, that's his actions not mine."
When Anderson asked Tran if Brown was officially back together with Rihanna who he broke things off with after a public domestic dispute in 2009, the budding designer shrugged her shoulders.
"You've got to ask Chris. I'm going to give you his number you can interrogate him," Tran said with a laugh.
