American recording artist and actor Chris Brown is trying to bring on-again, off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran and his daughter closer.

According to a report in Hollywood Life, the 25-year-old Loyal singer believes the 26-year-old model and Royalty would bond over one common factor - their love for Hello Kitty.

"Chris thinks Karrueche will fall in love with Royalty instantly because they both love Hello Kitty," a source said. "Royalty has commandeered every single one of Karrueche's Hello Kitty items that she left at his house."

"Chris can't even put Royalty to bed without Karrueche's Hello Kitty pillow. Royalty will cry and throw the biggest fit if she's not laying her head on that pillow for naps and bedtime."

"Funny thing is, that's Karrueche's favorite pillow. She would curl up in bed with Chris and put that same pillow on his lap and lay her head on it when they'd watch movies in bed," the insider added. "Chris thinks it's a very good sign that Karrueche will eventually come back to him and be a family with him seeing as how his daughter is infatuated with Karrueche's favorite pillow."

After reports emerged about the Say Goodbye singer's love child, Tran announced her split with Brown by declaring she did not want "baby drama".

Later, Tran opened up about their latest break-up in an emotionally-charged interview with Fix My Life coach Iyanla Vanzant, which aired on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.
