  • Are we tired of the ongoing Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown drama? Probably not. Still, we can’t help but talk about it around the office. Her latest Instagram post bashing the R&B singer definitely sparked the social media universe. [Vibe]

“First off @chrisbrownofficial you just did an interview w Ryan Seacrest in which you spoke about me. My interview w Access Hollywood was not entirely about you.. they asked a question and as a mature adult I answered. I’m not gonna shy away from something that I lived through. I’m talking about my life and experiences. I’m not speaking on you or bashing you (like I easily could). Don’t be mad at me because our relationship is over due to your lack of loyalty. You know what’s weak?? You forcing yourself into my car.. my broken window.. blowing up my phone.. trying to shower me w gifts.. Man the fuck up and change the bs in your life like I’ve told you several times.” – Taken from  Karrueche’s Instagram post
