Videos: Sneak peak from Karrueche's interview with Iyanla Vanzant

In a newly released clips of Karrueche Tran's upcoming interview with Iyanla VanZant on OWN, Karrueche admits she let herself down and opens up about her love triangle with Chris Brown and Rihanna and also talked about how she found out Chris fathered a child with another woman. About Chris Brown stepping out on her with Rihanna, Karrueche said;
"I didn't want to believe it. I was under the impression that it was a friend-type of... not a friend, but it wasn't what it became to be."
How she found out? She said it was on Christmas Day 2012 when she was staying at his LA condo and he told her he was going out, only for her to see pics of him with Rihanna at a Lakers basketball game on social media. 'I knew. I didn't want to believe it, I loved him." 

She cried a lot in the interview. Watch the clips after the cut. But before then let me throw a question out there. If Chris wasn't a superstar singer, would Karrueche have tolerated all the things she did?
