Karrueche Tran reportedly has respect for Rihanna despite their bizarre love triangle which involves Chris Brown, a new report claims.

The aspiring fashion designer, 25, is believed to have reconciled with Brown in recent weeks following his May split from Rihanna and while both women have previously mocked each other on social networking site Twitter, Tran reportedly has no issues with the Bajan pop star, according to HollywoodLife.com.

"Karrueche isn't the kind of girl who would talk to Chris about his ex. She doesn't roll like that and she really doesn't even like to talk about Rihanna to her girls," a source told HL.

"She has a mutual respect for Rihanna. Remember, she and Rihanna were in this triangle with Chris before, so if anybody knows what Rihanna is feeling, it's Karrueche. She's been in her shoes before," the source explained.

Tran was infamously left heartbroken when Brown, 24, ended their two-year relationship over Rihanna, 25. However, in May, he appeared to confirm his split from the "Diamonds" singer.

"The way I look at it is, I'm always going to love that person, but people have differences, and people have different wants and needs, at the end of the day she's a young girl," Brown told Australian radio hosts Kyle & Jackie O about Rihanna.

"I can't really be focused on wife-ing somebody that young, and I'm young too," he added.

Tran is rumored to have been the reason behind Rihanna and Brown's most recent split with sources claiming Brown disregarded requests made by the singer for him to stay away from the model. Tran reportedly has no issues with Brown ever having a friendship with Rihanna, though.

"That's not her decision — that's Chris'. Karrueche is not about to tell him what he can and cannot do and who he can and cannot talk to," the source revealed.

"Karrueche would just hope that both of them would behave and be adults," the source continued. "She doesn't want to get hurt anymore. She loves Chris."
