Karrueche Tran – or, 'the awkward third wheel in the Chris Brown-Rihanna love triangle' – has opened up about her relationship with Chris in a rare interview with VIBE Magazine this month, and it makes for some interesting reading.
After describing how the two first met at a fashion shoot a couple of years ago, Karrueche says that the last year has been "a rollercoaster" and that while Chris is important to her, she's also using 2013 to focus on her work (her work is 'working with Chris on a fashion line'. It's confusing).
"At the end of the day, he will always be a friend," she said. "We’ll always care about each other. We won’t allow that to interfere. Our business is business."
And when asked if she'd found the person she'd like to settle down with, the 23-year-old said: "I do care about him and I do love him. Family is very important to me, and I’ve always put it in my mind to remember that."
But she also said that she'd have some, uh, things to say to Rihanna if ever the three sat down in the same room together. "I’m a very mature person so if the time ever did come where we would need to sit down and talk, I’d do it," Karrueche said. "I’m a mature person. I can work it out but that would be a lot."
