Chris Brown’s ex Karrueche Tran recently visited the Hope for Survival orphanage in Africa, but it’s not her charitable heart that has people talking, it’s her wardrobe selection. Karrueche posted multiple photographs of herself interacting with children in Abuja, Nigeria while rocking heels, bracelets, a necklace and what some are calling “nightclub” attire.

Below are some of the comments people made on Instagram after seeing Tran’s outfit:

“Her hair and make up is fully done. Lol really? As much I try to focus on the bigger picture, how you presented yourself won over my attention.”

“Could have worn something more appropriate.”

“What in the he’ll were you thinking going around little children in club attire .. #exposingnakedness might as well wore a bathing suit.”

“I know plenty of people who donate food and money AND then see what there donations do. They spend time in those areas and environment, and culture and spend time with people. And they don’t take pics and post them to prove that they help. Cause in their heart they know they’re helping. It’s bigger than them. It’s not a PR stunt to them. They care about these people. They wear scrubs to these areas not thousands of dollars in jewelry. Donating money isn’t enough if you have no clue or care what that money does.”

In all fairness, Karrueche has done lots of charity work domestically, so we don’t think this was a photo op. Also, she was in Nigeria to host a party and still found time to visit the orphanage and give back in some capacity so the shade being thrown her way seems a bit unfair. Granted, her wardrobe choice does raise a few eyebrows, but we think her heart was in the right place. What about you?

    Well…. I’m not a “fan” of Karrueche, but it is obvious that people are being petty , for a lack of a better term, in this scenario regarding her outfit. It’s not that bad, and who is to say what some people may or may not wear to a club. She basically dressed for the weather and threw on a shiny necklace….what’s the issue with that?

    Yet the people complaing have probably done little in the charity world. Yes, the outfit is wrong for the occassion, but her heart was in the right place I guess.

    She’s dressed like she’s going out somewhere. She’s just wrong period. Please tell me she didn’t go all the way over there just to host a party. Wow… she must have gotten paid a grip but then again. I doubt it. She’s just has allot of bills.

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.
