Recently, the 27-year-old model/actress cleared up a few misconceptions in an interview with Newsbeat, namely addressing critics who have accused her of being weak for enduring all the drama that came with dating Chris.
"A lot of people think I am a weak individual because of past situations and when it comes to business sometimes people don't want to be involved with somebody like that," Karrueche said. "Which is understandable, but it sucks, because I'm not a weak person."
She continued, "I feel like I shouldn't have to explain myself to anybody because this is my life and I can do whatever I want. But in the same breath, it's like, now that I am trying to focus on my career and get my stuff together, I have to clear up certain things."
Strangely enough, the fact that Karrueche's career was negatively impacted by her affiliation with Chris directly contradicts the critics who constantly claimed that she was only famous or successful because of her connection to the singer.
After multiple breakups, Karrueche finally reached her breaking point earlier this year when she learned through online reports that Chris had fathered a daughter with another woman. She says that the pair are no longer friends or even in contact, which is a sign that she's strong enough to move on from the past and fully prepared to embrace whatever the future holds.
