Aspiring actress and model Karrueche Tran says that on Christmas Day in 2012, she was staying at the condo of then-boyfriend Chris Brown when he told her he had somewhere to go. Hours later, photos of Chris at a Los Angeles Lakers game with pop star Rihanna, his ex-girlfriend, were splattered all over social media, leaving Karrueche devastated.
Despite his betrayal, Karrueche continued to date Chris on and off until March 2015. Now, she opens up to Iyanla Vanzant about what she knew about Chris' relationship with Rihanna. "I was under the impression that it was a friend type of—not a friend—but it wasn't what it became to be," she says. "I didn't want to believe it."
Iyanla stops Karrueche midsentence to stress the importance of that statement. "I'm going to repeat to you what you said: 'I knew, but I didn't want to believe it,'" Iyanla says. "Huge mistake. Huge. But you've got to get that. Don't just zip past that."
Watch as Karrueche reveals why she didn't want to believe what she knew in her heart.
