Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran are no strangers to calling one another out on Instagram, but it appears that the former couple’s friends and fans are the ones battling it out on social media amid the duo’s looming court date later this month.
After making a public statement last week regarding Karrueche Tran’s decision to testify against him in their upcoming restraining order battle, Chris Brown has remained mum on social media when it comes to any news concerning his former longtime girlfriend.
Similarly, Karrueche Tran has stayed busy promoting her upcoming TNT series, Claws, over the past week as well as ringing in her 29 birthday in NYC on Wednesday, giving no mention to Breezy’s statement of innocence concerning her accusations of domestic violence and harassment against him.
Now, however, it looks as though the duo’s friends and fans are coming to their defense on social media as the attention surrounding Tran and Brown’s upcoming court date draws near, ultimately prompting one of Chris Brown’s friends to take to Karrueche’s social media page to leave a negative comment on one of the actress’ birthday photos from earlier this week.
“Busy busy working on my birthday but I wouldn’t want it any other way..,” Karrueche Tran began on an Instagram post shared to her account on May 18. “So blessed to see 29 and so blessed to be running these streets promoting @clawstnt *heart emoji*.”
In response to Tran’s caption, Chris Brown’s friend, Sinko, left a “thumbs down” emoji in the comment section of the model’s photo, prompting a whirlwind of backlash from Karrueche fans who then proceeded to attack the OHB crew member on the social media site.
“@sinko_ohb don’t be a hater now cause you living off Chris,” one Karrueche-dedicated fan page wrote in response to Sinko’s comment, as captured by Holly Gozzip. “Go get yourself a job and stop living off your friend.”
While Sinko opted not to reply to the fan page’s diss, it looks as though Chris Brown may have caught wind of his friend’s comment as the “Privacy” singer later took to his personal Instagram page to give kudos to his friend by reposting a video of Sinko watching him perform on his “The Party Tour.”
“Love my fam,” Chris Brown wrote in the caption of his Instagram video, which was taken during his tour stop in Anaheim, CA.
While it’s unclear what prompted Sinko to diss Karrueche on her social media page, some fans speculate that Breezy’s friend may have been giving a “thumbs down” to the fact that Tran was seen hanging out with Migos rapper, Quavo, during her birthday celebration, of whom Breezy previously noted used to be a close friend of his before the rapper began dating Tran last month.
Although neither Karrueche nor Quavo made mention of Tran’s birthday bash on social media, the “Bad and Boujee” rapper was spotted in attendance at Karrueche’s celebration yesterday, as seen in a video posted by the Shade Room.
The news comes just days after Chris Brown took to Instagram to publicly shut down rumors suggesting that he had been formally served with paperwork concerning Karrueche Tran’s restraining order against him, telling followers that he would not be pleading guilty if he and his ex-girlfriend go to court later this month.
“I’m so sick of these thirsty adults,” Chris Brown began in a lengthy Instagram rant, as captured in a screengrab by Ballert Alert.
“Jacob [Karrueche’s manager] has the obsession,” Brown continued. “Her team is trying their best. For what? No one has served me and the lengths they are going, I should call them stalkers.”
Chris then went on to accuse Karrueche and her team of “slandering” him in the public eye in an attempt to boost the actress’ image before pointing out that the case is purposely trying to “open old wounds” in relation to his history of domestic violence.
“What’s even more f***** up is that, they played off my past by saying I abused her *side-eye emoji*. Come on now, opening old wounds to make Kae a victim, that’s some evil s***. Sad part, y’all believe it,” Chris explained.
Breezy further dispelled claims suggesting that he had already been served paperwork to appear in court for Tran’s restraining order case, revealing, “I want nothing to do with her…you think I wanna chase or still be with someone who would try to destroy me??? She doesn’t need a restraining from me. I need one from them. I will not accept papers from any lawyer and I will not go to court to admit guilt to further tarnish who I am.”
Brown concluded, “I pled guilty in the Rihanna case because I was. I refuse to allow these evil hearted people to label me and lie because they think it will skyrocket their career. Just stay away from me.”
While a firm court date for Karrueche and Chris’ legal battle has not been released to the public, TMZ previously reported that the duo is set for another court date later this month.
