Karrueche And Her Manager Rip Into Iyanla Vanzant: 'It Was Ridiculous The Way That Woman Acted'

They went in.

Published November 22, 2017

Karrueche Tran is now an accomplished actress and socialite, but before her career began to pop off, she was primarily known simply as Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend, whom he admittedly wronged on multiple occasions.

Fresh off their public breakup, Karrueche agreed to participate in an interview with popular OWN life coach Iyanla Vanzant, but things didn't seem to go the way she or her manager, Jacob York, expected. In fact, during a recent interview, they both took the time to share their thoughts on what they deemed an opportunistic ploy for ratings.

Karrueche's no stranger to opening up about instances from her past. See what she had to say about her ex, Chris Brown, in the BET Breaks video, above.

During an interview with Angie Martinez, the Claws actress admitted that she partly regrets doing the sit-down, which she and her manager clarified was actually not an episode of Vanzant's monster hit, Fix My Life, but was spun in that direction without their knowledge.

"No," she said with a frown when asked if she was glad she did the interview. "I was confused... I don't know. I think the way it was translated might not have been the best. It was a weird thing because afterwards, I felt like I wanted to kill myself, not literally, but I wanted to just get in bed and not look at my phone but then a lot of women said that they loved it."

York then interjected, clarifying that Vanzant took advantage of his client, spinning the interview into a mirror of her show, when that wasn't the agreed upon deal.

"It wasn't Iyanla Fix My Life," he said. "It was just an interview with OWN. OWN reached out on a premise that they wanted to interview her then they tried to backdoor this Iyanla [thing]."

After explaining that the intended point of the interview was for the public to see Karrueche for who she "really" is outside of her past involvement with Brown, he expounded on the issues he has with Vanzant, going into detail about the beef he says he still has with her, to this day.

"Yeah, I put her out the house in the middle of the interview," he said. "My beef with her is that she puts on this idea that she's trying to help people when she's only trying to get ratings — You know? How she was attacking her... It was designed as an interview, so yes, I do have beef with Iyanla."

The dragging only intensified from then on, with York ripping the life coach a new one after speaking on how she approached the interview with his client.

"I think she's fake and what she did to her as a young, Black woman was foul," he added. "Because we had an agreement that she was going to speak to her and hear her story and, immediately, it was an, 'Aren't you a this?' And, 'Aren't you a that?' And I was like, 'Wow, you have to leave.'"
