Karrueche Tran, what have you been doing since Chris Brown allegedly dumped you in October? It took you this long to realize what a pile of celeb gossip gold you have in your back pocket? You are the other woman in the Chris Brown/Rihanna drama, after all. We would be more surprised if you didn’t use the exposure to further your career, like posing topless for the cover of Rolling Out magazine.
“I try my best to just ignore the negativity, which is hard for me because it’s a lot to deal with. But I try to keep a positive mind and stay strong and not put energy into it,” Tran told Rolling Out. “People only see you in blogs and they think they know everything about your life. There are things that go public and everything that comes out is not the truth,” Karrueche adds. Okay, but if RiRi hadn’t had made veiled references to you on Twitter, would you be posing for your first ever magazine cover? Weird as it is to say, Rihanna has given you a great, terrible gift, girl.
Says Tran, “I hope people can learn from my story. I want to be remembered as someone who remained positive through such a negative situation. Regardless of what you’re put through or what is going on in your life, keep a positive spirit. That will help you get through it.” Meanwhile, despite the fact Chris Brown publicly dogged her for Rihanna (and vice versa), Karrueche is currently branching out from modeling to designing…Chris Brown’s women’s clothing line The-Kill. “Chris started his fashion line and wanted to start his women’s line. He asked me to be the head of the line. I brought along Ugo Mozie and MiMi Gazelle as my creative team,” she explains. As proud alumni of the Get That Money, Honey School of Economics, we could not be prouder.
