Gossip: Is Another Man Wooing Chris Brown’s Girlfriend Karrueche Tran?
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
With such a tragic ending to what seemed like the perfect celebrity love affair, it’s obvious that rumors of Chris Brown and Rihanna getting back together will never completely cease to exist. And no, it doesn’t matter if the two move on to publicly date other people, like the time Rihanna dated baseball player Matt Kemp, or Chris Brown’s current relationship with up and coming model Karrueche Tran. Although the two have been together for over a year, there are always reports of him leaving Tran for his old teenage love Rihanna. And like clockwork, just days after all those reports, the two will be seen traveling together or even enjoying Hollywood nightlife together, with no signs of relationship problems.
Despite that, the recent 2012 VMAs proved to be another wedge in the couple’s relationship when Chris and Rihanna were caught on the live stream sharing a quick embrace and a kiss on the cheek. Although those that were there admit the encounter look purely friendly and congratulatory (Rihanna had just one an award), many headlines read that the two were officially back together and kissed on the lips to show the public that their romance had been rekindled.
Then following those reports, it was said that Karrueche Tran was distraught. And also it was reported that due to the events of the VMAs, the couple had decided to go their separate ways, and Chrihanna was back in full effect.
Of course, as we recently reported, those reports were not true.
Well now the latest gossip about these two (Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran) involve a new man allegedly pursuing the up and coming model despite her very public relationship with Chris Brown.
And according to the gossip tidbits, he’s very interested in Karrueche and feels he could treat her better than Chris has.
Here’s the picture that started those rumors:
We saw the tweet when she posted it, and we have to admit, we thought nothing about it. But regardless, the rumors began suggesting that Karrueche has moved on from Chris Brown and this was her new man.
Welp, not too long after the reports began to travel to the different gossip sites, some friends of the mystery man finally explained the nature of his relationship with Karrueche.
Here’s what they told the Hollywood Life:
A friend of the mystery man tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Deron ‘Lavar’ Cole is just friends with Karrueche. I can assure you 100 percent that they aren’t dating or anything like that. Deron thinks Karrueche is a dope girl and they have fun together.” “The picture that Karrueche put on her Twitter page was taken at a club a couple of days ago,” the friend said.
Makes sense. We thought it was innocent, especially since Chris and Karrueche are still very much a couple.
In related news, Chris and Karrueche (together), and Rihanna were all spotted by the paps partying a few doors down from one another the other night:
