Chris Brown is now a fashion critic. Chris Brown is now a fashion critic. “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 looks like the shopping of the manikin and trying to bargain with 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.” 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. 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.”
