Like any cautious girlfriend, Karrueche Tran didn’t like seeing her boyfriend, Chris Brown, kiss his ex in public.
Last week the blogs were buzzing after Chris Brown laid his lips on Rihanna at the MTV VMAs. Karrueche, Chris’ current girlfriend, wasn’t in attendance, but according to US Weekly, she was none too pleased.
“She felt the kiss was a public slap in the face,” said a source, who described Karrueche as “totally pissed off.”
Apparently, Chris decided to attend the ceremony at the last minute and did not have his new girl on his arm. Instead, he was caught on camera with one arm around Rihanna at the event, exchanging a kiss that may or may not have been lip to lip.
While Karrueche has managed to befriend Chris’ ex and “Basketball Wives: LA” star, Draya Michele, she and Rihanna haven’t forged a comparable friendship. The two have traded barbs via Twitter and Rihanna fans have issued threats to Karrueche as a result.
“[Karrueche] and Rihanna really hate one another and Chris ultimately just does what he wants," the source continued. "Seeing him with Rihanna at such a public event made her very angry."
Draya said her friend isn’t insecure in her relationship with Chris, but that didn’t stop Karrueche from issuing what some interpreted as a warning to Chris.
“Treat your girl right,” she tweeted, along with, “You can’t expect the best when you’re not giving your best.” It’s not clear whether her messages were directed at Chris.
