TELLING HER SIDE: Karrueche Tran Reveals How She Found Out About Chris Brown’s Daughter, Says She Stills Loves Him But Will NOT Go Back To Him

 photo kaeiy2.jpg

Since calling it quits with her on-again off-again boyfriend Chris Brown, Karrueche Tran sits down with Iyanla Vanzant for a special interview to tell her side of everything that went down. Get the deets and check out the full episode inside….

Since we first told you about Karrueche Tran doing an interview with OWN’s Iyanla Vanzant we’ve been twiddling our thumbs to get the juice. And now, the tea has been spilled.

Last night, Kae’s “Fix My Life” special aired on OWN where she sat down with Iyanla Vanzant for a detailed interview about her roller coaster relationship with R&B superstar Chris Brown, which involved a love triangle with Rihanna, numerous groupie tales, and recently, Breezy fathering a nine-month old baby girl named Royalty.

Chris and Kae’s entire relationship has played out in the public eye since they hooked up two years after he was hit with two felony charges for assaulting his then girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. Kae revealed they met 5 years ago while she was on a styling job when he asked for her number. She said gave her number to one of his dancers and Breezy called her up that night. Although she had the attention of one of R&B's biggest stars, she claims she wasn't star struck at all. In fact, she said she was flattered but she wasn't pressed that he was a celebrity. Hmph.

For their first date, Kae said they went to Norms restaurant at 2:30 in the morning. Interesting first date. She also said she waited a few months before sleeping with Chris, which she said was a long time considering he could get with any chick at the drop of a dime. The aspiring model said she wanted to be "different" from all the other girls he had been with.

Nearly a year after getting together, on Christmas Day 2012, Kae said CB up and left telling her he had somewhere to go. Unfortunately, that’s when their relationship took a turn for the worst once she found out Chris had left her to attend a NBA basketball game, sitting courtside with his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Since then, there have been plenty of groupie tales, lies and backstabbing, but Kae eventually got fed up with it all once she found out her boyfriend had fathered a child, unbeknownst to her. The kicker? Kae found out just like the rest of us…via social media! Messy!

As hard as she tried, Kae did her best not paint Chris as a bad guy. He clearly has his issues, but she also admitted to having some of her own. She said, “Yes, he is damaged, but I’m damaged, too.”

Iyanala also took a moment to chat with Kae’s bestie Christina Milian and called her out on not offering Kae the support she needed during her turbulent relationship with the R&B bad boy. C-Milli tried to ease her way out of it by saying her “best friend” doesn’t always tell her what’s going on in her life so she really didn’t know the details. Hmph.

All in all, Kae said she still loves Breezy, but this time she doesn’t plan on taking him back. We’ve definitely heard this all before, so time will tell.

Peep the entire interview below:

She continued,

“I know there are voices that you are not good enough. Each of those doubts was like a test that I either shrink away from or rise to meet. And I decided to rise."

She also spoke on the importance of education and how knowledge can take you to places you'd never imagine. She said,

Beautiful ladies Kerry Washington, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis, Queen Latifah and Uzo Aduba brought the fabness for a taping of “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” Emmy Edition. Peep the brown beauties’ flicks inside…

Yesterday, a few of our fave YBF ladies were front-and-center for a taping of “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” Emmy Edition (presented by Autograph Collection Hotels) in L.A. And let’s just say the ladies were on their A-game serving class and sass for the taping.

For the upcoming eighth installment, “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” will feature conversations between television stars who are contending for Emmy Awards. And, of course, our girl Kerry Washington is in the running for her role as Olivia Pope in the hit ABC series “Scandal.”

For her look, the Emmy-nominated actress played with patterns, rocking a polka dot and floral Giambattista Valli dress, Bionda Castana "Daphne Bis" pumps, Lauren Harper earrings, Amrapali ring, and a Movado watch. Gorge. Kerry has been nominated for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category for a Primetime Emmy in 2013 & 2014.

“Empire” breakout star Taraji P. Henson lit up the carpet in a bright yellow dress with her hair pulled up into a bun. Ms. Henson will definitely be in the running for an Emmy this year for the fan favorite role of Cookie Lyon in the FOX hip hopera series. Taraji was nominated for a Primetime Emmy in 2011 for her role as Tiffany Rubin in "Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story."

Viola Davis, star of ABC series “How To Get Away With Murder,” will be contending for an Emmy this year for her role as Annalise Keating in the crime drama series. If she's nominated, this will be her first Emmy nod. That scene on "HTGAWM" when she takes off her wig, make-up and eye-lashes is definitely Emmy worthy.

“Orange is the New Black” star and Creative Arts Emmy winner Uzo Aduba looked amazing in a black and blue dress on the carpet. She won an Emmy in the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category for her role as Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren in the Netflix series.
