Karrueche Tran: 'My Father Is Gay'

Recalls "something was different" about her dad since she was a child.

Published July 1, 2015

Last week's Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality held special meaning for Karrueche Tran. The model and host revealed on Tuesday that her father is gay.

"I think I've never told anybody just because I don't realize that that's not necessarily normal," she told MadameNoire. "I live my life as me so it's just like, 'Oh, that's my dad.'"


Tran said she's known for a while that her dad is gay. "I knew from, like, middle school, even elementary school," she said. "I don't know how I knew or how I even knew what gay was being so young. As I grew older we had certain talks or talks with my mom and it just was what it was."

Now, Tran says she can identify, even a little, with the Kardashian-Jenner kids and their reactions to finding out about Caitlyn Jenner. While acknowledging her situation is "a little different" she also confessed that she "understood their pain and where they were coming from."

Quite a bomb, Karrueche! But that's not all the petite beauty opened up about. Tran also discussed her resentment over constantly being referred to as Chris Brown's girlfriend or ex-girlfriend, and wants to be recognized as her own person. "There's more to me," she said. "Now that I'm working more and doing more things people are starting to realize that I think."
