Chris Brown and former girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, may have gone their separate ways earlier this year, but it looks like Chris Brown isn’t bothered by those rumors suggesting that Karrueche may be getting cozy with Brown’s longtime rival, Drake.
Rumors of a romantic connection between Drake and Karrueche Tran ignited over the weekend after Chris Brown’s ex and the “Hotline Bling” rapper were spotted at the same nightclub in L.A. on Friday. While it’s unclear whether or not Karrueche and Drake actually spoke to one another inside the venue, rumors of a budding romance between Tran and Drake have already begun to make headlines.
Despite the rumors, Chris Brown, who has made headlines for his continued involvement in Karrueche Tran’s love life since Tran ended their relationship in March, is reportedly unfazed by Drake and Karrueche’s attempts to make him jealous.
A source close to Chris Brown reveals to Urban Islandz that Chris has “zero” concern over the Drake and Karrueche dating rumors, noting that Brown is too focused on his daughter and his music to pay attention to the “BS” rumors surrounding Drake and Tran.
“The homie’s about to put out a new dope album and have a beautiful daughter that he is focusing on. Life is good and he is over Karrueche and couldn’t give two cents who she wants to give it up to,” the source explains.
Similarly, another source close to Chris Brown suggests to Hollywood Life that Chris is over Drake’s attempts to “pick up” his ex-girlfriends, referencing Drake’s former relationships with both Rihanna and Karrueche Tran.
“Chris is glad to be able to be of service to Drake yet again,” Chris Brown’s source explains, noting that Drake is always attempting to provoke Chris Brown by bringing his name up in his music and in interviews.
While Chris Brown can’t be bothered by Drake and Karrueche’s attempts to get under his skin, it seems Drake hasn’t given up trying to diss Chris Brown in his music.
Drake threw some major shade at Chris Brown on his mixtape, What A Time To Be Alive, after he referenced Karrueche Tran in his track, “Live from the Gutter.”
“This for my n***** on that bull**** and that nonsense / This is for my dogs that go Karrueche with the chopsticks.”
Chris Brown later responded to Drake’s dig with an Instagram message claiming that he’s “too blessed for the bull****,” and Drake was relying on hyping their feud in order to stay relevant.
Drake and Chris Brown’s feud first made headlines in 2012 after they started a club brawl involving some heated words made about Brown’s ex, Rihanna.
While Drake and Chris Brown seemed to squash their feud years later when they were spotted in the recording studio together, things quickly took a turn for the worse after Chris Brown blasted then-girlfriend Karrueche Tran for reportedly dating Drake behind his back in 2014.
Chris Brown lashed out at Drake and Karrueche Tran in December of last year after friends close to Brown revealed that Tran was reportedly visiting Drake in his native Toronto while Chris was serving a jail sentence for violating his probation.
After announcing his newly single status during a concert the night before, Chris then took to social media to call out Karrueche for her rumored romance with Drake, explaining, “I was locked up for damn near 4 months and only got 1 visit from you while u was hosting parties and taking secret trips to Toronto, going on dates with Drake.”
While neither Drake nor Karrueche Tran has responded to the dating claims, Drake recently silenced relationship rumors with Serena Williams after sources close to both Drake and Serena released a statement saying that they’re nothing more than close friends.
