The Chris Brown, Karrueche Tran and Rihanna triangle may have included a payoff to Tran – a report claims she got a generous payout following their split.
The 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker broke up with Karrueche over his friendship with former girlfriend Rihanna – who he was convicted of assaulting in 2009 and has recently been linked to again – and to avoid any bad feelings, he offered the model money so she can buy herself a house.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Neither Rihanna nor Chris want to make things harder for her than they already are.
''Chris wants to set her up financially and do right by her – he wants her to stay in his life if possible.''
Meanwhile, Rihanna has reportedly reached out to her love rival and the duo recently met for a heart-to-heart.
The insider added: ''Rihanna called Karrueche for a proper heart-to-heart. They needed to air a few problems.
''The girls talked for close to two hours. Rih answered all of the questions and Karrueche had a few home truths to tell her.''
Rihanna's dad Ronald Fenty has given the couple his blessing despite Chris' past mistakes and insists the star deserves a second chance because he is a respectful and charismatic person that he has a lot of ''love'' for.
He said: ''I think everyone makes mistakes and they shouldn't be held to them forever. Everyone should be forgiven once. There's a lot more to Chris than the whole world knows.''
''I love Chris, man. He's got so much charisma. And he's always had so much respect for me. That's what I love about him. He's always shown me respect.''
The superstar's father also praised Chris' many talents, gushing about his ''super-talented'' singing and dancing as well as his design skills.
