After their new single hit online, Chris Brown’s publicist made a point to say that Brown wasn’t “cheating” on his current girlfriend, model Karrueche Tran, with this ex-girlfriend Rihanna, and it appears he was telling the truth — Chris Brown isn’t cheating on her, because she’s totally cool with him boning Rihanna. Radar Online says:
“Karreuche is clearly enjoying the attention and notoriety she is getting being his girlfriend,” a source [said, "but] Karrueche isn’t stupid, and she has told friends that they have an open relationship. She never asks him about Rihanna, ever. Chris will take several days to call her back at times, and that is OK with Karreuche. She isn’t going to let the fact Chris is spending time with his ex-girlfriend come between [them].”
The Barbadian beauty and Brown have been hooking up but aren’t planning a reconciliation.
“They have probably hooked up no more than half a dozen times in the past year. It’s very unlikely that Rihanna and Chris would ever get back together though,” an insider told us.
“Rihanna is the one calling the shots now, which she likes. Rihanna knows that if they were to get back together, she wouldn’t be able to maintain that strong role, and Chris would lose interest.”
If there’s one thing I know about the finer points of romance, it’s that relationships based on a need for parasitic “attention and notoriety” and “power and control” always work out great. Almost as great as relationships built around fake pregnancies and murder-suicide plots.
