Chris Brown is now a fashion critic.
The “Loyal” singer, 30, took to Instagram to disparage ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran’s boyfriend Victor Cruz.
“No shade boo, BUT PLEASE STYLE HIM,” Brown commented on the former NFL player’s photo with Tran, 30, in a now-deleted series of comments. “He look like he shopping of the manikin and trying to bargain wit the sales manager. Retired wrestler spanks [sic].”
Brown also offered to “take him around to style him,” and insisted the multiple comments were “not hate” and he was just “f—ing around.”
In the photo, Cruz, 31, wears a pair of black sweatpants with a simple black long-sleeved shirt and multiple gold chains.
Brown and Tran dated on and off from 2010 to 2015, and the model-turned-TV-personality took out a five-year restraining order against her ex in 2017.
After they called it quits for good, it was reported that Brown got aggressive when Tran refused to return diamonds and gifts he’d bought for her. He also allegedly sent her threatening text messages, and claimed he would shoot her if she left him.
He’s made a point to go after any man who poses with his ex-girlfriend in photos, having commented “Imma kill blood” under a picture of her and actor Michael B. Jordan and physically threatened model Tyson Beckford after he posed for a selfie with Tran. He similarly challenged Soulja Boy to a fight after the rapper liked one of Tran’s Instagram posts, and became “livid” when the model was linked to Migos musician Quavo.
In 2017, Brown publicly admitted to his violent post-breakup tendencies on social media. “If I love you, b—h, ain’t nobody gonna have you. I’m gonna make you miserable. I’m gonna chase that n—a out. I’m gonna chase your ass around,” he said in an Instagram video.
Meanwhile, Tran and Cruz, who have been together since December 2017 and seem headed toward engagement, seem unbothered; they’re currently attending fashion shows in Italy together and, as Cruz captioned a recent photo, “flourishing in Florence.”
