Karrueche Tran was seen holding hands with NFL star Victor Cruz.
While the two look like a cute couple together, many fans wanted answers as to what happened to Cruz’s fiancée, Elaina Watley. Now, that question is answered.
Apparently, Cruz and Watley split in what could now be considered one of the quietest celebrity breakups. The two went their separate ways at the end of last year. Cruz went as far as moving out of the home they shared together with their daughter, Kennedy, 5.
Cruz has reportedly been living in a mansion in New Jersey since October. Watley has also been living pretty good in a five bedroom, 5-bathroom mansion. Word is they live roughly 30 minutes away, Bossip reported Tuesday.
The last time they were seen together was in October. Before that, it was at the New York Fashion Week last year. The two enjoyed the Kids Rock! Show front row. While they are no longer together, Watley is reportedly still operating an eyelash extension business Cruz helped her out with back when all was well between them. The two got engaged in 2014. It’s not clear what caused the split.
As for Tran, two insiders have confirmed with Us Weekly that she is indeed dating Cruz.
“They are dating and have been for about a month now,” one insider told the publication Sunday. “They really like each other and are trying to make it work and see where it goes. They were and have been friends for a while and she was at his private birthday dinner in November. They aren’t exclusive yet, but it’s definitely in the works.”
Another source confirmed the new couple alert and said the two have been hooking up for a while. They revealed that it was always an issue of timing but now that she has more spare time and Cruz most likely does too after being cut from his one-year contract with the Chicago Bears, there could be hope for them after all.
“She’s super into him and he’s head over heels for her. It’s adorable and she’s loving it,” said the second source.
If true, this is Tran’s first serious and public relationship since her split with Chris Brown back in 2015. The two had been dating on-and-off for roughly four years. Tran called it quits with him when it came out that he had a love child.
