Ex-couple Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran are fighting again after heated words were exchanged on Instagram. The duo, who split in 2015 after it was discovered that Brown had fathered a daughter with another woman, started bickering after Brown called Tran’s manager, Jacob York, a “fat ass” on the social media platform.
Brown initially shared a throwback photo of one of York’s other clients wearing a t-shirt with Brown and Rihanna’s face, captioning the shot, “Hey… I know that shirt @jacobyork fat ass is gonna have a speech for you. I respect the support.” York then fired back on Twitter, challenging the “Loyal” singer to call him like a “#GrownMan” and mused that “cocaine is a hell of a drug.”
Caught in the crossfire, Tran then jumped in and left a message for her ex-boyfriend, telling him to stop with the “petty shit” and “be positive.” The comment, which was left on Inatagram, was eventually deleted. (But not before fans took screenshots!)
“You’re calling me a bitch yet you’re screaming my name in a song about getting back together? CAN ALL THIS PETTY SHIT STOP. IT IS SO UNNECESSARY,” Tran wrote. “You have a beautiful daughter and so much to live for. LIVE YOUR LIFE and be positive. I am so over the drama! I just wanna work and be happy and take care of my family. Every fucking day it’s something new!!! And all you fucks get your life and laughs from this shit show. I am MUHFUCKIN’ tied!!”
Brown then replied, shading Tran’s accomplishments since their breakup, “Ok miss tran, I wish u the most successful career ever! But I promise you this, once this ‘talent’ you have starts to simmer, so will everyone else including Jacob, all of your famous friends know you how? How? How? How? How?.. Ok. So to end this petty game that’s gonna allow u to book more club appearances and ‘MOVIES’ that go straight to DVD i’ll leave you with this ❤️!”
Brown’s response was also deleted. He later left a cryptic note — presumably about the exchange — on his Twitter, reading:
However, this wasn’t Brown’s first post-split spat with Tran. Previously, he accused his former girlfriend of being a THOT (“that hoe over there”) and physically forced himself into her carwhen the two ran into each other at a Los Angeles nightclub.
Recently, Brown released a remix of his song, titled “Fuck You Back to Sleep,” begging the model to take him back.
