Karrueche Tran had to suffer Chris Brown breaking up with her because of his rekindled, in his own words, "friendship" with fellow singer Rihanna. New reports now claim that Tran, 24, had a intense phone conversation with the Barbados singer, in which the two discussed some serious topics.
The two women spoke on the phone for nearly two hours and a source revealed to The Sun details about their conversation.

"Rihanna called Karrueche for a proper heart-to-heart. They needed to air a few problems. The girls talked for close to two hours. Rih answered all of the questions and Karrueche had a few home truths to tell her," the source said. "Neither Rihanna nor Chris want to make things harder for her than they already are. Chris wants to set her up financially and do right by her - he wants her to stay in his life if possible."
Brown still has two years of probation to serve for his felony assault conviction, though CNN reported that the judge lifted the "stay away" order last year. He started dating Tran, a model, a year after he was arrested for assaulting Rihanna.
On Oct. 3, only a day before Brown's statement about his "friendship" with Rihanna was released to the public, Tran tweeted "Bye baby," a message that many can assume was directed at Brown and their confirmed split.
"I have decided to be single to focus on my career," Brown said in a statement via his publicist. "I love Karrueche very much, but I don't want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna. I'd rather be single, allowing us to both be happy in our lives."
In an Oprah Winfrey interview that aired in August, Rihanna said about Brown, "I still love him...we love each other and we probably always will."
