Following her latest breakup with singer Chris Brown in the wake of reports Wednesday that he had fathered a 9-month-old child, model-actress Karrueche Tran was seen partying in Los Angeles.
TMZ.com on Thursday posted video of Tran and friends, including singer-actress Christina Milian, hitting the clubs Hyde and Warwick. When a paparazzo asked, "Do you have to worry about your friends now, hanging around, like, boyfriends and stuff?" Tran replied lightheartedly, "I gotta worry about you!" She later posted three Instagram images of herself and her group clubbing, the most recent identifying Warwick as the locale.
TMZ had said Wednesday that Brown, 25, had had a baby daughter with a 31-year-old Texas friend named Nia -- identified as former model Nia Gonzalez by GossipCop.com and others -- whom he has known for several years and with whom he is not romantically involved.
The site added on Thursday that the child's name is Royalty. As well, citing unspecified anonymous sources, it claimed Tran had learned of the infant only moments before TMZ posted its initial report, and that Tran and Brown had not spoken since having an argument a week ago. Additionally, the site said Brown has made financial arrangements with Gonzalez regarding his paternity.
Tran and Brown have dated on-and-off since 2011. Their most recent public breakup came after Brown announced at a Dec. 5 concert in Los Angeles that he was single. Shortly after, he apologized in an Instagram post, and on Christmas Day Tran tweeted an image of two large diamond rings -- sparking rumors of an engagement though she wore them on her right hand instead of the left as is tradition. That image has since been deleted.
Brown's rep has not responded to requests for comment.
