Chris Brown tore up the stage at last Sunday’s BET Awards during his first performance since being released from jail. The weekend that served as his musical resurgence also served as a coming out party of sorts for his girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Karreuche has been dabbling in modeling and hosting for some time now but recently it seems that the caliber of her endeavors has heightened. She hosted a few pre-awards events and attended a few more with Chris appearing to be no where in sight.
Earlier in their relationship Karrueche was called a leach because no one knew what she did for a living. Many of Chris’ fans claimed that their dislike for her stemmed from the belief that she was mooching off of Chris. Now that Karrueche is doing her own thing business wise and making a name for herself separate and apart from Chris the whispers should die down right? Wrong! People are still calling her a leech and a moocher saying that her opportunities are a result of her relationship with Chris. Who know if that’s true but for the sake of argument let’s say it is. Aren’t we supposed to find mates that add to our lives and enhance us? Aren’t significant others supposed to help and uplift each other in any way possible? We’ve watched plenty of couples do just that. One could argue that Will Smith was more successful than Jada Pinkett Smith when they became an item. The same can be said for Russell Simmons and Kimora Lee. T.I. and Tiny have both talked about the fact that Tiny, already a part of a successful girl group, helped T.I. financially with getting his rap career going. In all those relationships, one being with the other helped them reach higher heights. What makes Chris and Karrueche any different? Who knows if Chris is really behind the recent rise in Karrueche’s stock but if he is that doesn’t make her a mooch, it makes him a great boyfriend.
Wouldn’t you want a mate that adds to your value and enhances you?
