Rob Kardashian slams rumours of romance with Chris Brown's ex Karrueche Tran
For months he went to extreme lengths to avoid the celebrity limelight.
But now Rob Kardashian has made quite the social media comeback.
On Tuesday night, he uploaded a suggestive photo of none other than Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend.
Rob shared a screen grab of text messages the pair had been swapping, which included a selfie from Karrueche.
The ex Keeping Up With The Kardashians cast member captioned the photo:
“I like it when she sends me pictures.”
Within minutes the rumour mill had gone into overdrive, speculating that the pair are dating.
However Rob was quick to deny romantic links with Karrueche, later re-captioning the picture, “I been friends with Karoooooch since high school,” before deleting the photograph.
Karrueche is best known for dating Chris Brown for two years before they broke up when he fathered a child from another woman.
It could be a case of Rob doth protest too much although a source reportedly told Hollywood Life that Rob "couldn't land Karrueche if he were a pilot."
“Chris is laughing, damn near crying, if anyone thinks he’s threatened by Rob,” they said.
“No disrespect to the brother, but Rob couldn’t land Karrueche if he were a pilot. For Kae to leave Chris and try to hook up with Rob would be a serious downgrade.
"And if there’s one thing Chris knows about Karrueche, it’s that she likes that Hollywood life and Rob can’t give her that. Him posting pictures of Karrueche is like whatever to Chris."
