Karrueche opened up in a talk show interview

Karrueche Tran revealed that she has a restraining order against Chris Brown during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show today. Tran, who has testified previously that Brown punched her in the stomach and threw her down the stairs on separate occasions, said that she asked for the court order to protect herself from the singer that she dated for several years.

“It came to a point where I felt like I needed to protect my safety,” she told Williams, who immediately tried to joke about Brown throwing rocks at Tran’s window.

“That did happen before,” she said, “but we’re not going to go into detail about that.”

Tran also revealed that her relationship wasn’t always bad. She went into detail about the way in which they met, claiming that they casually fell in love with one another after meeting while Tran was at work.

“I met Chris, actually, on a styling job. I was a personal assistant to a stylist. That was the direction I was going in my career,” she said. “I was on this job. We met. You know, he did his whole charming thing. The base of our relationship started as us just being friends. It was work related. I didn’t have sex with him, anything like that. Then, you know, I got into my emotions and I fell in love with him.”

However, things obviously soured. Tran says that Brown seems to be respecting the order, as they have not encountered one another since she was granted it this summer.

“It’s so interesting. We have not recently in the past few months or whatever, we haven’t crossed paths,” she said.

Though the Brown story is going to follow Tran wherever she goes (being the reason that most of us learned her name), Tran said she’s trying to focus on her own career and accomplishments at the moment. Tran changed the subject to her work on the TV show Claws.

“I’m so into myself right now,” she told Williams. “I’m trying to self-invest with, you know, Claws and everything, I just want to keep that momentum going and just protect me and make sure I am on the right path.”
