Karrueche Tran Net Worth, Parents, Ethnicity and Ex Boyfriend – Chris Brown

It might sound wrong but it is difficult to think of Karrueche Tran without thinking of a woman who is more famous for who she dated than for her own work. This is not a disregard for her works but rather points to the fact that she hasn’t found as much success and fame in her chosen career compared to the fame she’s gotten from her love interests.

Karrueche Tran is one of the internet’s most popular personalities due to her dramatic relationship with singer Chris Brown. The American model and actress currently has a 5-year restraining order against the singer. Even though she might be more famous for her relationships, there are more to Karrueche and if you would like to know, read below to find out.

Karrueche Tran Bio and Ethnicity

Karrueche Tran was born in America to a Vietnamese mother and a Jamaican father. One of her long list of controversies is the internet’s refusal to accept her black heritage. Her Vietnamese heritage is considered an overriding part of her and she’s considered ‘not black enough’ with the model constantly having to defend herself and her heritage as a half black and half Vietnamese woman.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Karrueche educational background started at Fairfax High School before she switched to Birmingham High School due to her family’s relocation to San Fernando Valley. For college, Karrueche attended Pierce College, a community college in San Fernando Valley and graduated with a degree in Graphic Design in 2008.

As a young woman, Karrueche always had an interest in Fashion, so when she graduated from college, she got a job at Nordstrom and began a career as a personal shopper which lasted from 2009-2012. Her experience as a personal shopper was transferred to a career as a freelance celebrity stylist. As her career as a freelance stylist blossomed, she kicked off her career as a model, taking part in photoshoots for local brands. She was signed as the face of Lady Crooks, the women half of the streetwear brand, Crooks and Castles in 2013.

Being entrepreneurial, Karrueche Tran did not rest on her laurels and soon opened her own clothing line. She named it The Kill.
Perhaps as a result of working around multiple actresses or a natural talent for the job, she auditioned for a role in the web series, The Bay and got cast as Vivian Johnson. She played the role from 2013 to 2016.

Her role as Vivian Johnson opened several other acting opportunities for her and she currently has 16 film and television credits to her name. Tran has also been nominated for six awards, winning four of them, all for her work on The Bay. Outside of acting, she’s hosted some shows, including the BET Awards red carpet and 106 & Park.

Her Net Worth

Despite her popularity, especially on the internet, it hasn’t translated to a significantly increased earning power for the model/actress. She’s currently considered to be worth $900,000 which is not surprising considering that she hasn’t appeared in any commercially successful film project. Karrueche is however still young and can still increase her net worth in the near future.

Karrueche’s Parents

Despite the subject of Karrueche’s heritage being a popular internet debate, not much is known about her parents. All we know so far is that her parents are Cindy Tran, a Vietnamese woman and Devon Minters, a Jamaican man. The couple shares two children with Karrueche being one and the other being Raymond Adamson.

Even though Karrueche has her own success to lay claim to, it was her dramatic relationship with Chris Brown that shot her to the limelight. The now estranged couple started dating in 2010 while she still worked at Nordstrom and was starting out as a freelance celebrity stylist.

The couple then broke up briefly when Chris Brown chose to reconcile with his former girlfriend, Rihanna after a very controversial breakup. However, the reconciliation did not last and not long after, Karrueche started dating Chris Brown again. The two ultimately broke up in 2015 when Karrueche discovered Chris Brown had a daughter with Nia Guzman, suggesting that he cheated on her.

A dramatic and ugly breakup led Karrueche to seek a temporary restraining order against Chris Brown in February 2017. This was subsequently made a 5-year restraining order in June 2017.
