There’s no need for a history lesson, here. For the most part, we were all introduced to Karrueche Tran as Chris Brown’s petite model girlfriend back in 2012. Since their relationship began, it’s a been a TON of media buzz and speculation about their relationship–good and bad. Fast-forward to present day and CB has since ended his relationship with Karreuche for Rihanna, and Tran has created a name for herself in the fashion and entertainment industries. Her new clothing line, “The Kill,” will be released this year, consisting of urban-wear for men and women. Karrueche recently did an interview with Vibe to discuss “The Kill” as well as her personal life. Peep the excerpts below.
On how her New Years kiss with Teyanna Taylor happened:
“Well, we counted down and I turned to her, said “Happy New Year” and gave her a kiss!”
On having a tight-knit group of friends:
“I keep it very small. I don’t really go around and tell my friends my business. I’m very personal. When I hang out with Christina [Milian], we don’t get into too much. We just kinda forget about all those negative things or whatever’s going on and just relax and have a good time. I really, really don’t tell my business when it comes to a lot, even though my business is public. The things I personally go through within myself, I tend to keep to myself. It just creates more of a drama.”
On how “The Kill” got started:
“Chris [Brown] wanted to do a female line for his men’s line [“Black Pyramid”]. So he asked me to take over and “The Kill” was gonna be a women’s only line but it’s actually unisex.”
On if she’s happy with her love life currently:
“I mean at the time, but right now of course not. It’s a lot going on but it could be a lot worse. And that’s how I look at life. I take it for what it is. I move forward, grow from it and at this point, that’s what I’m doing. I’m not gonna sit and dwell and become consumed in that negativity because I could very much be that person, especially when things are so public and so thrown in my face. But like I said, things can be much worse. So I’m good.”
On what she’d say if she ever sat down with Chris Brown and Rihanna:
“For everybody, emotionally, that would just be way too much. I’m a very mature person so if the time ever did come where we would need to sit down and talk, I’d do it. I’m a mature person. I can work it out but that would be a lot. (Pause) Yeah, it would be a lot.”
On if her and Chris Brown’s love life affects their business:
“At the end of the day, he will always be a friend. We’ll always care about each other. We won’t allow that to interfere. Our business is business.”
