Karrueche Tran covers the latest issue of Rolling Out magazine. The former aspiring model turned entrepreneur talks about the love triangle with Chris Brown and Rihanna, her clothing line, The Kill, and the moment she realized things had changed.
I first realized there was a change [when] more people would talk about me in blogs and such. The paparazzi would take pictures and follow me when I wasn’t around Chris [Brown]. I was like ‘Chris is not here, why are you following me?’ But I was constantly seeing myself on blogs and websites. It was kind of weird.
The most challenging part about the attention was the negativity and the misconception from some people. People only see you in blogs and they think they know everything about your life. There are things that go public and everything that comes out is not the truth.
I’ve learned to find happiness within myself. I’ve also built a strong core. The past year was a big growing up process for me. I’m not saying I was immature before, but the past year, my eyes were opened to a lot of things.
I hope people can learn from my story. I want to be remembered as someone who remained positive through such a negative situation. Regardless of what you’re put through or what is going on in your life, keep a positive spirit. That will help you get through it.
