Karrueche started off as being a social media star who dated Chris Brown and got pulled into the headlines quick. Even after their break-up, Karrueche was still popping up and Chris would even publicly hit up his ex by posting and deleting comments on her photos. The 30-year-old is now over being someone’s ex and is working to make her name known as a respected actress.

“I felt like in acting, I was figuring out who Karreuche was. It was another stepping stone for me – maturing, growing, and becoming a woman,” she told Galore Magazine. “Realizing what I want and don’t want. I can’t rely on my followers. I made sure I worked with a personal acting coach and I started working out. I just found different ways to better myself.”

As for her dream role, Karrueche wants to tackle something badass where she can be a boss woman. Later in the interview, the Claws actress talked about her relationship necessities.

“Has to be clean, has to have nice teeth, has to smell good. Teeth are big thing for me. I’m affectionate. Also, respect,” she said. “How they treat the woman in their life – their mothers and sisters. If I feel comfortable around them or not. With some guys, I feel like I’m in a shell. Other guys, I feel like I can be myself and comfortable. It’s all about vibes. Good vibes that connect with one another.”

Karrueche is currently dating football player Victor Cruz, but don’t think about calling her his object. “It’s disrespectful to refer to somebody through somebody else as their material object,” she said. “We have a name; we have our own identities. I’ve dealt with that for a while. Slowly I’d like to just do my own thing and work hard and focus on myself. Slowly that’ll change.”
