Karrueche Tran is opening up about her tumultuous off-again, on-again love affair with Chris Brown.
In a teaser clip for an episode of BET’s Just Keke set to air Wednesday, Tran says she wasn’t prepared for a relationship in the public eye. “I’ve never dated a celebrity before so it was very new to me — paparazzi and all that,” she says.
She also wasn’t prepared for a relationship in the shadow of Chris’ previous one, which was, of course, also very public.
“The situation with Rihanna, you know, the reason why people tuned into this so much was because it’s relatable: I have girlfriends, I have family who’s gone through the same situation. It’s the case of the ex.” But this ex IS different, Tran admits.
“In this case, my boyfriend is a celebrity whose ex-girlfriend is an even bigger [celebrity]….so, not only am I fighting a battle with her, I’m fighting a battle with her 14 million fans.”
Tran also admits that the hardest part of her relationship with Brown was “the heartache….it was a real-life situation.”
