Chris Brown may claim to be a new man, but it’s clear he’s not over everything … or everyone in his past. Shortly after celebrating his 26th birthday at Drai’s Beach Club in Las Vegas alongside boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, Brown shared a cheery message via Instagram, where he shouted out the three special ladies in his life: his mom, Joyce Hawkins; his ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran (who also celebrates a May birthday); and his daughter, Royalty (May 27).
“Thx for making my bday a special … All my friends family etc. #taurus season … I have three special ladies celebrating this month. Mother’s Day for momma. May 17th miss you know who. And May 27 is my baby #Royalty be humble and learn that it doesn’t take effort to love! We create our own outcome and destiny in life. My paths has been a very blessed 26 years on this planet and I’m still learning. I can only be the best I can be. Sorry enough wit the rants! Love y’all! Thank god! I’m grateful and so thankful,” he wrote.
Although Tran and Brown aren’t officially back together, rumor has it that they had quite the reunion at his birthday bash over the weekend. Tran posted the message above via Instagram, where she too admitted to finding beauty in forgiveness …
