Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown Reality TV Show for BET Axed
Any hopes of a Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown Reality TV Show for BET have been nixed by the rapper.
An earlier report claimed Black Entertainment Television (BET) was eager to sign a deal with the 'Loyal' hitmaker, who was released from jail earlier this month, as they wanted to create a series based on his life after prison and his battle to stay out of trouble.
A source told TMZ.com: ''BET has made it clear to several production companies the network would absolutely air a Chris Brown reality series, chronicling his life after jail.''
The US network allegedly held a focus group on Tuesday in San Fernando Valley, California, to gauge the reaction of prospective viewers.
The group - comprised of female participants - were split, but the majority said they would tune in to the show, just to watch the 25-year-old singer struggle.
Chris was released from jail on June 2 after serving 108 days for violating his probation, which stemmed from his assault on his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
The 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker - who was sent back to jail after being thrown out of court-ordered rehab in March - is determined to stay on the right track and only take the medication prescribed for his bipolar disorder.
An insider said previously: ''He's going to be taking his prescribed medication daily and do his best not to smoke or even drink.''
Chris was originally sentenced to 365 days in custody on May 9 after admitting he violated his probation by getting into a fight in Washington D.C. last year, but Judge James R. Brandlin gave him credit for the 234 days he had already spent in rehab and jail.
However, Brown won't do a reality TV show.
"Chris and Karrueche Tran were heading out of 1Oak Friday night in L.A. when we asked about BET's intense interest in signing him to a deal ... but Brown nixed the idea straight out."
