The 'Beautiful People' hitmaker is said to have had the inking of the aspiring model's moniker removed from his body after reuniting with on/off lover Rihanna.
Rihanna and Chris - who is still on probation after assaulting the Bajan beauty in 2009 - spent their Christmas Day (25.12.12) watching an LA Lakers basketball game, where the 24-year-old singer was spotted whispering into his ear and cuddling up to him.
However, Chris, 23, is said to have called Karrueche on Christmas Day and sent her a number of text messages.
A source told Hollywoodlife.com: ''Even though he was with Rihanna, he still called Kae and told her Merry Christmas and told her how he misses her and how he hopes she was having a good day and all that s**t.
''He was texting her throughout the day, too.''
But Rihanna and Chris - who was spotted dining with Karrueche in Dubai earlier this month - are said to have had a ''happy and content'' Christmas together.
