Karrueche Tran and Victor Cruz dated for three years

Cruz and Tran began dating in 2016. During a visit to The Wendy Williams Show, the former NFL star told Williams how his relationship with Tran came to be.

“I would see her around and we would have conversations, but as I got reintroduced to her through a mutual friend, I was like, ‘I gotta take a shot at this if I want her to be my girl and I want to take her seriously, I gotta take a shot,’” he explained.

Cruz split with his longtime love before his burgeoning relationship with Tran began. He later invited Tran to a private birthday celebration where he finally asked her out. They two went to a dine-in style theater to watch Cruz’s favorite movie Pulp Fiction
