Karrueche Tran is receiving some unexpected support as she deals with the fallout from her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown’s secret baby scandal. And though it may be difficult to believe, it’s coming from her former foe Rihanna!
After breaking up with Brown on Twitter once she learned the singer had allegedly fathered a child outside their relationship, Tran put on a strong face, going out with her friends just hours after their split. And though she continues to appear to be handling the breakup well, a source close to Tran told OK! that she’s still devastated by the baby revelation.
"Kae was completely blindsided," the source said. "She never imagine something of this magnitude could come out of nowhere -- even with Chris"
But Tran’s close friends aren’t the only people trying to lift the heartbroken model’s spirits. Insiders close to Tran say Brown’s ex-girlfriend Rihanna has even reached out to offer her encouragement to her former nemesis.
“Kar was so suspicious and convinced she was calling to gloat, but in fact Rihanna was incredibly sweet and was key in encouraging her to put on her highest strappy heels and hit the town – something Kar’s done and it’s totally worked a treat,” the source told OKMagazine.com. And the source added that Rihanna called Tran at just the right time, since the model “refused to go out and was crying non-stop over Chris’s betrayal”
“Kar was in a total mess when Rihanna intervened,” the insider said. “Rihanna gave her the boost she needed to use this to her advantage, boost her profile and show Chris she’s not looking back.” The pair have previously had some serious tension between them, which peaked during Brown’s brief reunion with Rihanna back in 2013. At that time, Brown admitted to dating both of the girls at the same time, and Rihanna also took a few digs at Tran on social media and even in her 2011 hit song “Birthday Cake.” Yet, with Rihanna’s recent convo with Tran, it looks like the pair are finally taking steps to squash their differences.
So there you have it! Rih and Kae may share an ex, but it’s good see they have set aside their issues as Tran attempts to move on following Brown’s baby surprise.
