The 33-year-old started as a wardrobe stylist in L.A., however, the world didn’t get to know her until she met global superstar Chris Brown and became his "girlfriend." After they called it quits, Kae really glowed up professionally. She got into acting and started landing some roles that put everyone on notice that she’s a certified actress, including her role (that we LOVE) as Virginia on "Claws" and Vivian on "The Bay."

The model/actress has already won three Daytime EMMYs as an executive producer of the hit digital series "The Bay." This year, she landed a historic win in the Lead Actress category.

Congratulations to our history-making honorees tonight: @xoJodiLong is the first Asian-American actress to win, and @karrueche is the first #AAPI Lead Actress Emmy-winner in either the #DaytimeEmmys or Primetime.

Last night, Karrueche Tran won the award for Outstanding Performance By A Lead Actress In A Daytime Fiction Program at the 2021 Daytime Emmy Awards for her performance as Vivian Johnson-Garrett on Popstar! TV’s “The Bay.” Being of African American and Viatnamese heritage,  it was an epic win. She’s the first Asian and Pacific Islander to win a Daytime or Primetime Emmy for lead actress.

Historic win for @karrueche !!! The first #AAPI Lead Actress Emmy-winner in either the #DaytimeEmmys or Primetime!!! We both cried tears of joy. #thebay
