Karrueche Tran Talks Rihanna and ‘Heartbreak’ With Chris Brown on ‘Just Keke’ [VIDEO]
In an emotional interview on Keke Palmer's new BET talk show, 'Just Keke,' Tran reveals how difficult it is being caught in the middle between Breezy and his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
"I’ve never dated a celebrity before, so it was very new to me -- paparazzi and all that," she tells Palmer. "And then, even the situation with Rihanna... the reason that why people tuned into this so much is because it’s relatable. I have girlfriends, I have family, who [have] gone through it -- it’s the case of the ex."
“In this case, my boyfriend is a celebrity whose ex-girlfriend is an even bigger celebrity," she continues. "Not only am I fighting a battle with her, I’m fighting a battle with her 14 million fans. "Because I stay so mute sometimes, it gives them open space for them to say whatever they want."
So what was the hardest part of being Brown's girlfriend?
“I guess I would say the heartbreak, because it was a real situation," Tran replies before getting choked up.
Meanwhile, Palmer went on Instagram to defend her interview with the 26-year-old model. She writes:
So lets talk about this...Some Rihanna fans feel a way about my interview with Karrueche. I have enough respect for Rihanna to address the topic, and I’m a Virgo so there are a couple of things I have to get straight. No one has ever heard her speak about anything pertaining to her relationship until... #JustKeKe...People make ideas of what my intentions are and I will willingly tell you... Lets be real. People want to hear what Karrueche has to say … The ones that love/hate Rihanna, the ones that love /hate Karrueche. My loyalty is to the community."
Oh, the drama!
Keke Palmer's interview with Karrueche Tran will air on Wednesday (July 16) at 5PM ET on BET.
