*A rumor sprouted this week that suggested Karrueche Tran was trying to become friends with Rihanna so they could bond over their experiences dating Chris Brown. But according to website Gossip Cop, the report is 100 percent fake news.

HollywoodLife was the first to report that Tran wanted to be RiRi’s friend based on their shared ordeals with the singer. A “source” told the site, “Kae is fully on team RiRi now, she thinks she’s a total goddess. She would love it if they could become friends.”

The “insider” continued, “They do cross paths from time to time and Kae is hoping the next time they’re in the same place they could have a conversation and bond over all the craziness they’ve been through with Chris.”

In debunking the report, Gossip Cop wrote, “The untrustworthy webloid seems to have concocted this phony story simply because the model and singer share a mutual ex-boyfriend.”

Meanwhile, it is 100 percent true that Tran has been cast in the upcoming film “Honored,” executive produced by Zoe Saldana and her sisters Cisely and Mariel.

The film’s description reads:

“At the start of high school, Piper, Sophie, Isabella and Honor think they will be best friends forever, so they sink a time capsule in the lake with a list of things they want to do before graduation. But a big falling out causes them to grow in different directions with hobbies, cliques, and social status, to the point where it’s like their 14 years of friendship never happened. By senior year, Piper (Rienks) has turned into the class clown/party girl. Sophie (Tran) pledges to stay a virgin until she’s married and has created a purity app. Isabella (Pieterse) is the feminist femme fatale who’s the editor of a zine, and Honor (Cho) is the pride and joy of the community. Honor’s dream of being a professional ballerina is taking off, but when tragedy strikes, the former BFFs must reunite and do all the things on the list they made in eighth grade. From jailbreaking the school mascot, Mo the goat, to getting back at some bitchy cheerleaders by disrupting halftime, the list forces them to face up to the real reasons for their falling out as they navigate body shaming, sex, and the party culture in high school. Through laughter, tears, and looking life and death right in the eye, they rediscover their friendship and learn to live life to the fullest every moment, even if it means saying good-bye forever to someone they love.”

Hailing from Lionsgate Digital Studios and Popsugar Films, “Honored” also features co-stars Meghan Rienks, Sasha Pietrse and Arden Cho.

Zoe Saldana states: “It’s gratifying to be in the company of so many talented women on this project, another sign of female empowerment rising in Hollywood. For me, it’s also very exciting to step into an executive producer role with my sisters and Cinestar co founders Cisely and Mariel in our first feature film with Lionsgate and Popsugar.”

“Honored” began production in Los Angeles this week.
