Karrueche Tran may be staying mum when it comes to acknowledging rumors surrounding her dating life, but it appears that the model may also be aiming to silence new romance claims by declaring her “single” status in a sultry new Instagram photo.
On Thursday, Karrueche took to Instagram to share a few pictures from her recent beach hangout alongside best friend Christina Milian, who showed her support for Karrueche by flaunting her curves in a high-cut one-piece bathing suit from the model’s “T x K” festival capsule collection with Los Angeles-based clothing company, This Is A Love Song.
In one pic, Karrueche can be seen showing off her toned physique in a strappy, high-waisted bikini while enjoying the sun and sand at Zuma Beach in Malibu in honor of the first day of summer.
In addition, the model also shared a sultry group photo alongside bestie Christina Milian before seemingly hinting at her single status in the caption of the pic, writing, “@christinamilian Single Summer ’16.”
While Karrueche has been open about her newly single status since calling it quits from ex-boyfriend Chris Brown last year, the Relationship Status actress has remained tight-lipped when it comes to weighing in on recent rumors surrounding her dating life.
Earlier this week, rumors of a budding romance between Karrueche Tran and The Game made headlines after the rapper released his new single, “All Eyez,” which features a shout-out to the model similar to that of the name-drop that Karrueche received in Chris Brown’s hit track, “Back To Sleep (Remix),” which dropped earlier this year.
In the track, which includes a feature from singer Jeremih, The Game borrows a line from Chris Brown’s “Back To Sleep (Remix)” in which the singer shouts out his former girlfriend’s name with the lyrics, “You want me to say your name, girl? Ok, Karrueche!”
It didn’t take long for The Game’s new track to further fuel already budding romance claims between himself and Tran, prompting radio hosts from Real 92.3‘s “Real After Party” show to inquire about the nature of his rumored relationship with Karrueche during an interview on Wednesday.
When asked if his “All Eyez” Karrueche shout-out was intended to be a dig towards Chris Brown, The Game explained, “Chris is a cool guy. I just remember hearing him do that on [his] song and I thought it was dope. You know what I’m saying? So, when I was doing the song at Storch house, I’m like, I was thinking about doing it in the same vein, but I couldn’t think of what name so I just said the same name because I thought it would be funny.”
While The Game may have shut down claims of a growing romance with Karrueche, the model has also been rumored to be romantically linked to America’s Next Top Model winner Nyle DiMarco after the duo was spotted posing for pictures together at the 7th Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala earlier this month.
In addition, Karrueche also heated-up dating rumors with Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton, after the duo were said to have taken a private helicopter tour of Manhattan together back in April. While neither Karrueche nor Lewis addressed the dating rumors directly, Tran recently clarified her relationship status during an interview with Complex‘s Emily Oberg in which the model admits that her schedule is too hectic to entertain a serious relationship at the moment.
When asked if she’s begun seeing anyone special, Karrueche reveals that she’s “100 [percent] single” and admits that she has “no intention of getting in another relationship.”
“I am so focused on myself and work and family that I don’t even want to bother,” Karrueche explained before adding, “I’m good.”
