Karrueche Tran dodged an awkward run-in with her ex Chris Brown during Coachella – but the real reason she avoided her ex may surprise you. It seems that Chris’ model ex is scared of falling back in love!

After a whirlwind of breaking up and making up, the attendance of both Karrueche Tran, 26, and Chris Brown, 25, at Coachella‘s first weekend of shows had all the makings for an explosive confrontation. Luckily for Karrueche, she was able to shy away from a face-to-face encounter with Chris — and an insider EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com why she refused to speak to her former flame.

Karrueche hit up the star-studded NYLON’s Midnight Garden at the Coachella Music Festival on Apr. 10, with besties Christina Milian, 33, and Amber Rose, 31. Miss Tran completely ignored Chris leaning on her gal pals to support her during such a difficult time.

An insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that’s exactly what Karrueche is trying to do by snubbing Chris. She needs some major alone time.

“Karrueche just wants him to ignore her for now. You know, like he did when he was with Rihanna and Nia [Amey].”

“She wants that Chris at the moment, the Chris that ignores her. She wants to heal,” the source adds.

“Karrueche’s well aware he wants to be with her but the best thing he can do now is to stop with all the gestures. Karrueche knows Chris like a book and knows that he’s not ready right now,” the source reveals. “She doesn’t think he’s ready to take care of her heart and love her the way she needs to be loved. She really wishes he were, but he’s not there yet.”

While there’s currently no communication between the two, there is hope for the future.

“Karrueche will know when he’s ready and maybe then, just maybe, they can go from there,” the source says.
