Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran had an on and off rocky relationship for four years, that got widespread media attention because of the apt way the couple changed relationship statuses, and dished their private lives in public when things are not going so smoothly.
While speaking with Iyanla Vanzant of Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) in an exclusive interview on Saturday night, Karrueche Tran opened up about what’s been going down with her and her “ex-boyfriend.”
“I feel hurt because the man I loved betrayed me. I will never again let a man disrespect me,” she told Vanzant through tears. “I want my voice to be heard…I want to clear it up and tell my story and tell my side.”
“I saw a different side of Chris that not everybody sees. Although he’s done whatever he’s done, he’s a good-hearted person,” she shared. “He’s a big kid with a big heart that’s been through some things.”
The young model however confirmed that after years of dating, she realized Chris Brown had cheated and betrayed her on several occasions with the most recent one being that of finding online that Brown had a baby with another woman.
“He’s said he’s sorry. He’s dropped flowers off. He’s sorry for what he’s put me through,” she recalled after finding out about the baby news on social media. “There’s no making up right now. I’m trying to be my strongest. I understand what he’s put me through and I’m fed up.”
However, she confirmed that there will always be a special place in her heart for the popular rapper.
“I still love him. I’ve changed to help him—go to church, pray, yoga, meditate—if he were to change, we would be in a better place, but that’s the problem,” she explained. “He did give me love. Maybe it wasn’t the right love or the same level but he’s a product of his environment growing up. There’s no doubt in my mind that Chris loves me. I know he does.”
