This was hardly a relaxing day on the beach for Karrueche Tran. The former girlfriend of Chris Brown could be seen breaking a sweat during a grueling fitness session with her personal trainer at the beach in Venice.
Tran was born in Los Angeles, California. Her mother is Vietnamese, and her father is Jamaican. Tran first attended high school at Fairfax High School before switching schools and later, graduated from Birmingham High School in 2006.
Tran began her career in the fashion industry as a personal shopper. From 2009–2012 she worked at Nordstrom located at the Westfield Topanga mall in Canoga Park, CA. After her spell in retail, Tran worked as free-lance celebrity stylist in Hollywood. She first gained fame when she began dating R&B artist, Chris Brown. She posed as the face of Lady Crooks, the women’s division under the streetwear brand Crooks and Castles for their Summer 2013 collection. Tran was also featured in the Spring/Summer 2015 lookbook for Korean-based athletic brand Le Coq Sportif.
