Chris Brown Confirms Relationship Status, Gives Advice to Karrueche Tran

Image Courtesy Eliot Lee Hazel/RCA RecordsChris Brown has set the record straight and confirmed that he's currently dating Karrueche Tran.  Although their relationship status is often plagued by breakup rumors, the singer revealed why he doesn't get caught up in the chatter.

"[When] you read [things in] the media, you'll see 'this happened' and 'that happened,' but I just let them talk," he told MTV News.  "Because, at the end of the day, that's what their job is."

Breezy adds that he likely wouldn't have been as passive about the ongoing speculation two years ago.  "You've gotta mature at some point and not give them that attention…when it comes to all the extra hoopla, that just gets lost in translation with me," he says.

Despite all the whispers, Brown and Tran seem to support one another -- the singer recently gave her advice after she was heavily criticized for reading a negative message about Blue Ivy from a teleprompter during BET’s 106 & Park.

"We had a conversation about that, too, but she's good,” Breezy said.  "I know the comment on the prompter was kinda left field -- I don't know who wrote it up, or [why] it was done -- but I told her, next time, because I know it's your first time doing this, just look at it and say, 'Hey, hey, I don't know about this.'"

He continues, "But that comes with show business.  At the end of the day, it has to be something left, or most of the time, negative.  I felt it was unnecessary."
