Keke Palmer interviews Karrueche Tran 5

It's hard enough trying to play out the ups and downs of a relationship in private, but throw in the fact that you're dating someone famous, paparazzi is stalking you and fans are threatening you, and it can make love a complicated thing.


Nobody knows that better than Karrueche Tran whose on-again-off-again ride or die relationship with Chris Brown has been scrutinized by the media for years. On a recent episode of Just Keke, the model opened up to Keke Palmer about dating Chris and being thrown into the limelight and constantly being ridiculed. Karrueche also got emotional when she recalled her "case of the ex" situation with Rihanna.

We all watched as Chris went from K back to RiRi for a hot minute and then back to K again, and for Karrueche the heartbreak was so real she started crying just talking about it.

Catch the highlights and video below:

Keke: Now I remember when you and I had a conversation right before everything started getting really crazy with Chris Brown. And I said to you, 'How is it? Is everything okay?' And you were like, 'Well it's not me. It's just my boyfriend's a celebrity.' …I actually felt really bad in that time because you have a girl, who's just a girl from California, who ends up falling in love with one of the big pop stars of our time. And you're hit with all of this drama. I mean what was that like? Were you a bit down about it? Were your friends there for you? How did you find a way to really move forward through all of this and keep going?

Karrueche: Just keeping a level head and positivity. I've never dated a celebrity before so it was very new to me. Paparazzi and all that. And then, even 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. We all go through it, do you know what I'm saying? But, however…in this case my boyfriend is a celebrity who's ex-girlfriend is an even bigger [celebrity]...Do you know what I'm saying? So, not only am I fighting a battle with her, I'm fighting a battle with her 14 million fans or however else. So, imagine how that feels for me when I gotta get on Twitter and I see a whole bunch of stuff…

Keke: And people are trying to make you constantly prove yourself. I see that a lot. I'm like looking and your comments…

Karrueche: They make up all kind of crazy stuff and it's like they know nothing about me. But, you know, because they know nothing about me, because I stay so mute sometimes, that leaves open space for them to say whatever they want…

Keke: What would you say the hardest part of it all was for you?

Karrueche: Um, jeez. I guess I would say the heartbreak because it was a real situation…

Karrueche starts to cry.

Keke: What was the heartbreak, mami? It's okay, we can take a second…We all feel you, we all feel you.

Karrueche: Yeah, it was a real life situation…

The entire interview will this Wednesday at 5pm on BET.
