Karrueche Tran may be adamant about distancing herself from Chris Brown since calling off their longtime relationship last year, but did the model aim to throw shade at ex-boyfriend Brown by sharing a photo with Kehlani on Snapchat over the weekend?
On Sunday, Karrueche Tran took to Snapchat to share a fun photo of herself hanging out with Kehlani, who Tran refers to as “baelani” in the photo, at the songstress’ 21st birthday bash on April 24, ultimately leading some fans to speculate over whether or not Tran’s photo was a dig aimed at Chris Brown after he publicly bashed the “You Should Be Here” singer’s reported suicide attempt in March.

Last month, Chris Brown faced public scrutiny after he took to social media to bash Kehlani’s apparent suicide attempt by implying that the singer was merely “flexing for the gram” in an attempt to garner sympathy from fans amid rumors that she had cheated on boyfriend Kyrie Irving with producer PartyNextDoor.
Within hours of Kehlani taking to Instagram to share a photo of herself in the hospital as a result of her reported suicide attempt, Chris Brown took to Twitter to weigh in with his thoughts on the situation by writing, “Girls be mad at a n**** for f***ing around wit b*****s but her DMs got more names than the Declaration of Independence #YEAHIMTHROWINGSHADE,” Hot New Hip Hop reports.
After publicly declaring his support for Irving with the hashtag, “#KYRIEMVP,” Chris Brown then went on to address Kehlani’s hospital photo by implying that the singer was merely “doing s*** for sympathy” as a result of the backlash surrounding her reported cheating with PartyNextDoor.

“There is no attempting suicide. Stop flexing for the gram. Doing s*** for sympathy so them comments under your pics don’t look so bad,” Chris Brown explained via Twitter before concluding with, “OK IM DONE. Guess she gone have to watch the games from a real ‘box’ now. ‘THE TELEVISION’ #OHB ‘OUTTA HERE BIH.’”
While Chris Brown’s rant ultimately led several celebrities, such as Zendaya, Tinashe, and two members of Fifth Harmony, to unfollow him on Twitter as a result of his comments about Kehlani, Karrueche Tran did not address Brown’s diss towards Kehlani on social media.
Now, with Karrueche having snapped a photo with her “bae” Kehlani on Snapchat, it appears that some fans are speculating that Chris Brown purposely lashed out at Kehlani as a result of Tran’s friendship with the singer.
“Ohhhh wait, Kehlani or whatever her name is, is friends with Karrueche? Chris Brown’s rants about her make sense now,” one fan wrote on Twitter following Karrueche and Kehlani’s Snapchat photo while another adds, “Karrueche petty for having kehlani on her sc *laughing-crying emoji*.”
This isn’t the first time that Karrueche has been rumored to throw shade at Chris Brown with her Snapchat stories; the model made headlines last month after she took to the social media site to share a video of herself and Jasmine Sanders, who has also been romantically linked to Chris Brown in the past, dancing along to Rihanna’s “Work,” the Shade Room reports.
In addition, Karrueche garnered praise back in February after fans pointed out that the model had shared several videos of herself listening and dancing along to new music from Rihanna’s Anti album despite the nature of the duo’s history with Chris Brown.
“karrueche stanning Rihanna on her snapchat *crying emoji* *heart emoji*,” one fan wrote on Twitter in response to Karrueche’s Snapchat video of Rihanna while another adds, “Karrueche be on snapchat blasting Rihanna, she a good one cause I could never. Lmao.”
What do you think of the rumors suggesting that Karrueche Tran is dissing Chris Brown on Snapchat?
