Claws star Karrueche Tran stopped by the Hot 97 studios for a wide-ranging chat on Ebro in the Morning Thursday. In addition to discussing her growing acting career and her dedication to a positivity-first lifestyle, Tran also briefly opened up about her restraining order against Chris Brown. Tran, when asked to reveal why she requested the restraining order, said she needed it to ensure her own safety.


"I'm always positive and I'm just focused, more than ever right now, on work," Tran said early in the discussion. "That's just the goal for me. There's no drama or anything like that. I do have the [restraining order] in place. We live our own lives and that's how we move." Asked to share more about the restraining order, Tran explained that she had no choice but to file it. "For my safety, yeah," she said. "It just got to a point where it's just like, I can't. Just to make sure. And I live in L.A. I'm from L.A. So I move around how I wanna move, you know what I'm saying? So that's what I felt that I needed."

Focusing on her career, Tran added, has allowed her to move into a variety of exciting new fields. "I have a makeup collaboration out with ColourPop that's been doing really well," she explained. "And then of course there's, like, modeling. I have this amazing platform that I want to utilize in the right way, so if the opportunity comes where it's a makeup collaboration or a clothing line or an acting role, whatever it is, if I feel that it's right, then let's do it."

Later in the interview, Tran—who also confirmed season 2 of Claws had recently been ordered by TNT—said she had no regrets about her past. "I'm confident and I’m comfortable with who I am today," she said at around the 11:24 mark. "If I were to change anything in my past, I wouldn't be who I am today and I'm totally content with that."
