As you probably know, Chris Brown’s ex and alleged model Karrueche Tran will be making an appearance on OWN’s Iyanla: Fix My Life. In a preview clip of the episode, Tran discussed the love triangle she found herself in with Breezy and Rihanna.
The Huff Post broke down the love triangle:
It was Christmas Day of 2012. Tran says she was staying at Brown’s condo when he told her he had somewhere to go. Hours later, photos of Brown at a Lakers game with Rihanna were splattered all over social media.
“Did he tell you he was dealing with her?” Iyanla asks in the above video.
Tran pauses. “Yeah,” she says.
“He did?” Iyanla says. “You said OK?”
“Yes, because I was under the impression that it was a friend-type of… not a friend, but it wasn’t what it became to be,” Tran explains.
Still, the 26-year-old admits that deep down, she sensed that Brown and Rihanna were more than friends.
“I knew,” she says. “I didn’t want to believe it.”
Iyanla calls this mindset a “huge mistake,” not just in Tran’s case, but in any relationship. An important part of the healing process, Iyanla tells Tran, is being able to completely acknowledge this mistake and reflect on why it happened. For Tran, the reason she allowed herself to overlook the true nature of Brown’s relationship with his ex comes down to one simple thing.
