Karrueche Tran, Rihanna and Chris Brown: New Year, Same Story

If you thought Chris Brown and Rihanna might have made a New Year’s resolution to keep their relationship ‘Nobodies Business’; think again. The duo could not resist taking to Instagram to let the world know they woke up on New Year’s together.

“Good morning! Still haven’t slept lol #hello2013,” Rihanna captioned the picture, where she is peeking out from under a black and white polka-dot comforter. Then, almost like a moth to a flame, Brown posted an Instagram photo of himself lounging in the bed – on top of the same black and white polka-dot comforter. The R&B bad boy later deleted his picture.

These two are definitely not ones for subtlety.

While the pair jetted off to Abidjan for business; as Brown continued his Carpe Diem tour, and pleasure; as the pair obviously spent New Years together, Karrueche Tran spent the New Year partying it up with her friends in LA. No word from her overly gossip-y camp (we’re looking at you Christina Milian) on her feelings about the newest development in the love triangle playing out around the world. But, anyone can guess that she’s not a happy camper.

Karrueche may have thought she had the upper hand by posting a photo herself in a shirt with Chris Brown’s cartoon likeness to Instagram on Christmas Day. However, RiRi reigned supreme again as she was spotted sitting court-side with her ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ ex at an LA Lakers game the same day.

Is it game, set, match for Rihanna in the saga among her, Karrueche and Brown? With reports of Ms. Tran’s beloved ex removing her tattooed name from his body in a gesture to prove to the ‘Diamonds’ singer that he’s serious about moving on with her – and only her, it is sure looks like it.

Is Tran really out of the picture for good? As we’ve all seen before, looks can be deceiving.

However, Brown reportedly painted Rihanna a picture – literally, in an effort prove his love and loyalty to her. A source told HollywoodLife.com that the ‘Carpe Diem’ tour star surprised his new boo with a painting of them to signify the beginning of this phase of their lives together.

“He painted this picture of him and her together and it’s [amazing]… It’s him and her together – she’s looking forward and he’s kissing her on the cheek. Chris painted the gold necklace around her neck that he got her and at the bottom he wrote “you’re my girl for life,” the source said.

That’s a nice gesture. However, I’m sure Rihanna would appreciate her ex practicing fidelity – or at least discretion – more than a painting that signifies his feelings.

If Karrueche hasn’t made a New Year’s resolution to move on, she should.
