Chris Brown's model girlfriend Karreuche Tran and his ex girlfriend Rihanna are embroiled in a very public feud, with the Vietnamese reportedly comparing herself to Angelina Jolie and the Barbadian singer to Jennifer Aniston.
The tension is said to have kicked off when the 'Umbrella' hitmaker posted a photograph of a bag of rice cakes wearing sunglasses with gold earrings, and the caption, "Ima a make u my b****."
This could perhaps be perceived as being a jibe at Tran.
The phrase also forms the lyrics to Rihanna's latest single, 'Birthday Cake' - she and Brown recorded a sexually explicit remix of the song which they released late last month.
She then responded to a follower who wrote: "@rihanna save me some rice cakes rather hungry," with the rather acerbic comment: "Kinda DRY tho." In response, Tran reportedly posted on her Facebook page: "I'm Angeline (sic), you're Jen. C'mon you see where Brad is at."
She then is alleged to have added: "Let me clear the air, if you have fenty at the end of ya name or your default Is Rihanna you have a better chance of winning the lottery than ending up on my friends list." However, Tran denied that she even has a Facebook page.
Rihanna later posted another missive on Twitter which said: "I'm a leader, yall on some followin s***... coming in dis game on some modelling s***', quoting lyrics from Lil Kim/Mob Deep's Quiet Storm remix. Her comments could have been construed as a thinly veiled dig at Tran, who is a model.
Brown and Rihanna have been hooking up for months, despite him dating Tran. Brown and Karreuche have "an open relationship" and she has been turning a blind eye to him spending time with his ex. "She never asks him about Rihanna, ever," Radar Online quoted a source as saying.
"Chris will take several days to call her back at times, and that is OK with Karreuche. She doesn''t pressure or hound Chris, it''s just not what she is about. Meanwhile, Brown is loving every minute of having two gorgeous girls fight over him.
"This is all very flattering to Chris. Name me a 21-year-old red blooded male that wouldn''t love having two women fighting over him," the source added. According to the New York Daily News, Rihanna and 22-year-old Brown are rumoured to have been "seeing each other in secret."
"Rihanna loves to live dangerously, and talking to and hooking up with Chris is all part of that," a friend told Us magazine of the couple's potential rendezvous. However, the two have dismissed persistent rumours that they are back together.
