Chris Brown and Rihanna are soul mates for all purposes. And Karrueche Tran is the one caught in the middle.
Chris Brown, 25, recently gave an in-depth interview to MTV in which he spoke in detail about the domestic abuse issues he faced with ex-girlfriend Rihanna and the scandal connected with Ray Rice.

It had some shocking confessions in it. Chris Brown’s new album titled simply “X” is just being released on September 16th. And he spoke of how he and Rihanna were in a mess as far as their relationship was concerned back when he assaulted her physically.
This has prompted the other woman, Karrueche Tran, 26, to applaud Chris’s efforts at getting the load off his back. She has praised him for his plainspoken manner and for coming clean.
“It’s times like these that shock her — but in a good way,” a source close to Chris Brown's current girlfriend Karrueche told HollywoodLife.com. “He stepped up to the plate and delivered and she’s in awe of him.”
And it was also revealed that Karrueche has been “very supportive” and even “congratulated her baby on a job well done, and on agreeing to address that issue in particular.”
And the singer’s mom, Joyce Hawkins, has lauded Chris too for getting up close and personal about the whole controversy.
“They both thought it was big of him to do that,” the source continues. “They knew he was nervous because he was looking down and swerving in his chair but they are both proud of him. Damn, he’s come a long way.”
Meanwhile, Chris was recently spotted wearing a neck chain that had a pendant similar to that worn by his soul mate Rihanna. Ah! One never forgets one’s first love!
On the other hand, Rihanna was seen kissing a facsimile chain too. It looks like there is a sense of reciprocity in this relationship.
MediaTakeOut (via IBT) posted "a black-and-white photograph of Rihanna, kissing a very similar looking necklace worn by the 25-year-old R&B artist, while performing on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon."
"Rihanna and Chris never stopped talking. They were supposedly 'just friends' but they would always flirt. There is a real 'soul mate' connection between them," a source close to Rihanna told the website.
But Karrueche also posted a pic of her and Chris Brown on her Instagram recently. She captioned the below Insagram, "It's hot as ffffffffff out here!"
Yet despite Karrueche’s charms, Rihanna remains the one that makes Chris’ loins ache with lust and attraction. The two are simply made for each other. The two often engage in some flirtation now and then and the channels of communication remain open between them.
"They have a bond and connection that's so deep that no one can fully understand except them. That's just a fact. He knows it. She knows it. Everybody knows it and that's that. When it comes to Rihanna, you know, her name and his name will forever be intertwined, no matter who she's talking to at any given moment," a source said previously.
Chris of course has a history with Rihanna. He beat her up so badly about half a decade ago that she was all bruised and bleeding. Yet, this strange love-hate relationship has withstood the test of time.
Rihanna still pines for Chris and he in turn gets pulled back into her arms. They definitely have a very complex bond between them. Then there was Rihanna’s diatribe which she posted online against CBS.

The channel had pulled off her song from their Thursday Night Football segment owing to certain complications (actually it was the Ray Rice domestic abuse issue).
CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, Fuck you! Y'all are sad for penalizing me for this.— Rihanna (@rihanna) September 16, 2014

Rihanna was very angry and used the “eff” word to disparage and bad mouth the network. Now the rest of her promo songs are to be taken off CBS’s airwaves too!
