Why Karrueche Tran Opened Up About Chris Brown Drama



Karrueche Tran recently sat down with Iyanla Vanzant to talk about her turbulent relationship with pop star, Chris Brown, something we’ve all been following for years.

But after the airing of the extremely candid and emotional chat with the Vanzant, it is still unclear what Brown’s thoughts were about the interview.

On Monday night, HipHollywood caught up with the fashion designer at the premiere of Brotherly Love to talk about whether or not her ex has responded. “Oh, I don’t know,” Tran said.

But in terms of her fans, the 26-year-old explained that she actually received positive feedback. “It wasn’t nothing too crazy. I was a little nervous when it first came out because I didn’t know how people were going to respond.”

Prior to the interview, Tran made it very clear on social media that the interview was not to bash her ex, which she tells us was very important to her. “I know how people are and the things that they’ll say and they’ll take one thing and twist it. I wanted to let them know that this is what it is. It’s me recognizing myself and my mistakes and not throwing anybody under the bus or being nasty or negative.”

Karrueche and Chris were both at Coachella over the weekend and apparently ignored her ex during the weekend’s festivities.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
