Victor Cruz Now Reportedly Romancing Model Karrueche Tran
When NFL free agent Victor Cruz was pictured holding hands with model Karrueche Tran last week, many people scratched their heads in disbelief.
What happened to his relationship with fiancé Elaina Watley, the mother of their five-year-old daughter, Kennedy? The couple had appeared to be a happy family and stayed together even after Watley angrily group texted several other women she believed Cruz was seeing behind her back to let them know she knew what was going on.
But BOSSIP has learned that late last year, Cruz moved out of the couple’s former family home in a tony mega-mansion in northern New Jersey, and in October, Watley purchased a newly constructed five bedroom, five bath mansion for $1.2 million about a half hour away from him, according to public records.
The former New York Giant has been renting a 3,400 square foot bachelor pad in a gated community fairly close to his old Giants training grounds, according to public records.
Cruz and Watley got engaged in 2014, and neither has confirmed or denied that they’ve since split since Cruz stepped out with Karrueche. Cruz must have a type: Watley and Karrueche indeed favor one another.
Cruz may have more time to devote to another relationship after he was cut from his one-year deal with the Chicago Bears.
Watley was last seen in public with Cruz in October, and last year, the pair were pictured side by side at New York Fashion Week in the front row of the “Kids Rock!” show. But she’s not completely out of the spotlight: witnesses spotted her with a gaggle of gal pals earlier this month at an Art Basel DJ set. And besides raising their daughter, the mom has also stayed busy by running the Montclair, NJ eyelash extension business that Cruz reportedly set her up in.
