Karrueche Tran Rolling Out Magazine
Chris Brown's on-again-off-again girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, covers Rolling Out Magazine topless with nude underpants on with the title "Karrueche Tran: Going in for the-Kill". It was shot in a mansion in Beverly Hills. Kurrueche has her new clothing line called "The Kill" to celebrate as well as snagging her first magazine cover.
The shoot was shot by photographer DeWayne Rogers and styled by Olori Swank. Here are some of the excerpts from the interview:
Somewhere in between falling in love with Chris Brown and pursuing a modeling career in California, Tran noticed her world had changed.
“I first realized there was a change [when] more people would talk about me in blogs and such,” Tran said later during her exclusive interview with rolling out. ”And 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.”
There are challenges to dating a superstar. Particularly when your boyfriend hasn’t quite extricated himself from his previous relationship with a woman who is also a superstar. Suddenly, Tran found herself in the middle of a love triangle. It was a turbulent ride that seemed to build momentum with every move or statement made by the parties involved.
Cryptic tweets and Instagram posts were the first shots fired by the ”other” woman in the social media war. Rihanna’s lyrics on “Birthday Cake” (“Sweeter than a rice cake”) were interpreted by some as a direct insult to Tran. Indeed, the proverbial roller coaster was going 1,000 miles per hour and there were no brakes to stop the madness.
“It was very hard,” says Tran. “I try my best to just ignore the negativity. Which is hard for me because it’s a lot to deal with. But I try to keep a positive mind and stay strong and not put energy into it.”
Through it all, Tran’s silence spoke volumes.
Karrueche celebrated her cover with a host of celebrity friends including Draya and Chris Brown. The magazine is on newsstands now!
