It has been more than two years since Karrueche Tran made her appearance on OWN’s Iyanla: Fix My Life. Now, Trans’ longtime manager Jacob York has spilled tea on what the appearance was really like for the celebrity.
Jacob York Shares His Side
Tran’s appearance on the show came amid one of her many breakups with superstar singer Chris Brown. Around that time, it had come out that Brown fathered a child with another woman. Tran seemed to go on the show to get help with her personal life that was made extremely public. She was the first serious girlfriend of the singer after his high-profile breakup with Rihanna. The two dated back-and-forth for years before she called it quits following news of the child, Royalty.
York has opened up about Tran’s appearance on the show as he called out host, Iyanla Vanzant for not fixing Tran’s life at all.
“My beef with her is she puts on this idea that she’s trying to help people when she’s only trying to get ratings by… you know, how she was attacking [Karrueche] bothered me,” York said in an interview with Power 105.1’s Angie Martinez.
York then added that Tran was supposed to do an interview with Vanzant. Instead, it all went left when Vanzant attempted to call out Tran’s life decisions, such as staying with Brown after he went back-and-forth between her and Rihanna.
“I think she’s fake,” York added. “And what she did to [Karrueche] as a Black woman was foul because we had an agreement that day that she was going to speak to her and hear her story and immediately it was, ‘Are you a this?! Aren’t you that?!”
What Really Happened Between Karrueche Tran And Iyanla Vanzant?
News hit that the interview/intervention was broken up quickly. York has confirmed that the abrupt ending for the sit-down moment came after he made Vanzant leave the home in which they taped the episode. He said Vanzant wasn’t telling the truth when she told news and media outlets that Tran and her team reached out to her for help initially. York said he has proof that Vanzant’s team contacted Tran under the notion that she was going to interview her.
He said they had to include their legal team after Vanzant lacked any type of “civility” during her time in the house.
Since the interview, Tran has been able to make a name for herself as she stars in Claws and has had multiple acting, hosting, and modeling opportunities.
