It may sound wrong, but it is difficult to think of Karrueche Tran without thinking of a woman who is more famous for her dates than for her own work. This is not a disregard for her works but rather indicates that she has not found as much success and fame in her chosen career as she has gained through her love interests.
Karrueche Tran is one of the most popular personalities on the Internet because of her dramatic relationship with singer Chris Brown. The American model and actress currently have a 5-year restraining order against the singer. Even though she may be more famous for her relationships, there is more to Karrueche, and if you want to know, read below to find out.
Karrueche Tran Bio and Ethnicity
Karrueche Tran was born in America to a Vietnamese mother and a Jamaican father. One of her long list of controversies is the Internet’s refusal to accept her black heritage. Her Vietnamese heritage is seen as a superior part of her, and she is considered “not black enough” because the model has to constantly defend herself and her heritage as a half black and half Vietnamese woman.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, she began her education at Fairfax High School before moving to Birmingham High School due to her family’s move to San Fernando Valley. For college, Karrueche attended Pierce College, a community college in San Fernando Valley, and graduated with a degree in graphic design in 2008.
As a young woman, Karrueche has always been interested in fashion. After graduating from college, she got a job at Nordstrom and began a career as a personal shopper, which lasted from 2009-2012. Her experience as a personal shopper was transferred to a career as a freelance celebrity stylist. When her career as a freelance stylist flourished, she started her career as a model and participated in photo shoots for local brands. In 2013 she was signed as the face of Lady Crooks, the women’s half of the streetwear brand Crooks and Castles.
As an entrepreneur, Karrueche Tran did not rest on her laurels and soon opened her own clothing line. She called it The Kill.
Perhaps because she worked with several actresses or had a natural talent for the job, she auditioned for a role in the web series The Bay and was cast as Vivian Johnson. She played the role from 2013 to 2016.
Her role as Vivian Johnson opened up several other acting opportunities for her, and she currently has 16 film and television recordings to her credit. Tran has also been nominated for six awards and won four of them, all for her work on The Bay. Outside of acting, she has hosted several shows, including the BET Awards Red Carpet and 106 & Park.
Her Net Worth
Despite their popularity, especially on the Internet, this has not resulted in a significantly increased earning opportunity for the model/actress. Currently, her value is estimated at $900,000, which is not surprising considering that she has not yet appeared in any commercially successful film project. However, Karrueche is still young and may increase her net worth in the near future.
Although the issue of Karrueche’s heritage is a popular Internet debate, not much is known about her parents. All we know so far is that her parents are Cindy Tran, a Vietnamese woman, and Devon Minters, a Jamaican man. The couple has two children, one of whom is Karrueche and the other Raymond Adamson.
Relationship with Ex-boyfriend – Chris Brown
Although Karrueche can claim her own success, it was her dramatic relationship with Chris Brown that put her in the spotlight. The now-estranged couple began their relationship in 2010 when she was still working at Nordstrom and started out as a freelance celebrity stylist.
The couple then broke up briefly when Chris Brown decided to reconcile with his former girlfriend Rihanna after a very controversial breakup. However, the reconciliation did not last long, and not long after that Karrueche started dating Chris Brown again. The two finally separated in 2015, when Karrueche discovered that Chris Brown had a daughter with Nia Guzman, suggesting that he had cheated on her.
A dramatic and ugly separation led to Karrueche filing a restraining order against Chris Brown in February 2017. A restraining order was then issued in June 2017 for 5 years.
