Chris Brown Admits He Doesn’t Like Drake + Had a Hard Time Splitting from Karrueche Tran [Video]
In news that will surprise no one, Chris Brown revealed that he isn’t really a fan of Drake — and that he had a hard time saying goodbye to his ex Karrueche Tran, who he infamously (and publicly) ditched in favor of Rihanna.
Brown dropped a mildly homophobic diss verse against Drake recently in a remix of Young Jeezy’s ‘R.I.P.,’ a move which many believe is in retaliation to Drake insulting Brown’s record sales on ’5AM in Toronto.’ (Brown’s lyric: “And if you started from the bottom gon’ and come out the closet.” Drake’s: “A couple albums dropped, those are still on the shelf / I bet them s—s would have popped if I was willin’ to help.”)
When Breezy was asked about Drizzy in an interview with Power 105.1, the ‘Fine China‘ MC and singer kept it simple. “People just don’t like certain people,” he quipped. “He don’t like me. I don’t like him.”
As for his ex, Brown wants to keep things friendly — but with one condition: he doesn’t want Tran dating other recording artists. “Yeah, that would be a little close to home,” Brown admitted. “At the end of the day I think it should be a respect boundary.” Interestingly, when he was allegedly hooking up with Rihanna behind Tran’s back, respect didn’t seem like much of an issue.
Brown also admitted that Tran was there during his darkest hours, so he’ll always have a place for her in his heart.
“She was my friend through it all,” he explained. “It was a friendship more than a relationship. I still love her, but at the end of the day, it’s like I got love for her. She’s gonna always be my homie. All the best to her. We still have a clothing line. I only want her to progress. I don’t want to stop her blessings.”
Unless those blessings are rappers. Especially rappers named Aubrey Graham.
