Rob Kardashian has denied rumours that he is dating model Karrueche Tran. The reality TV star sparked romance rumours on Tuesday, after he shared a selfie that Karrueche had sent him on Instagram.
"I like when she send me pictures," Rob initially captioned the image, adding a series of heart emoticons.
However after the image attracted negative comments from followers, who suggested he shouldn't be dating Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend, Rob briefly changed the caption to state that they were simply just friends.

"I been friends with Karoooooch since high school," he wrote, adding that people shouldn't leave negative comments on his profile.
Rob has since deleted the caption entirely, but left the suggestive image up for his 3.6 million Instagram followers to see.
The 28-year-old has been more active on social media in recent weeks after an extended period away from the spotlight during a battle with depression. He is now said to be feeling a lot better and has been joining his sister Kim Kardashian for workouts in a bid to lose weight.
It is unclear if Rob has been dating over the last year, but he has previously dated Adrienne Bailon and was in a relationship with Rita Ora until their split in 2012.

Meanwhile Karrueche was in an on-off relationship with Chris Brown from 2011, but called time on their relationship at the beginning of the year when it emerged that Chris had secretly become a father to daughter Royalty without telling her.
The 27-year-old had previously hinted that she could get back with the Loyal singer in an emotional interview with US television host Iyanla Vanzant, despite saying she was "fed up" with the way he had treated her.
"He's said he's sorry. He's dropped flowers off. He's sorry for what he put me through," she explained, after revealing she discovered the news on social media. "There's no making up right now. I'm trying to be my strongest. I understand what he's put me through and I'm fed up."
