Rob Kardashian and Chris Brown’s Ex Karrueche Tran Are Friends Who Text

Friends who text is not the same thing as friends with benefits, people.

The elusive Rob Kardashian surfaced on Instagram last night to post a text conversation between him and Chris Brown’s ex Karrueche Tran.

The now-deleted post, which featured a selfie sent by Tran and the caption “I like when she send me pictures,” had people wondering whether their exchange was indicative of a budding romance.

Notice that Kardashian has Karrueche’s name affectionately input into his contacts as “Karroooooooooohieeeeeee.” So if you didn’t know how to pronounce her name before, now you do.

But let it be know that Kardashian, 28, and Tran, 27, are not a fling, a thing, or even flirting. In fact, they go way back.

Rob later updated his comment to say, “Yall dumb af. I been Friends with Karoooooch since high school. F*** outta here with your negative s***,” before deleting his post completely.

The model also allegedly commented on the pic, writing in part “Rob has been my friend from hs.”

Karrueche has been single since she and Brown split for good earlier this year after the surprise news of his love child Royalty broke. Despite no longer being together, Brown has a history of threatening the men who he thinks is trying to get with Tran, namely Tyson Beckford, Drake and Marques Houston.
