Chris Brown is back on the market … or so he says.
The R&B/pop star has released a statement, confirming the rumors that he has split with his girlfriend of over a year, Karrueche Tran. And, as speculated, his ex-girlfriend Rihanna played a role in the relationship’s demise.
“I have decided to be single to focus on my career,” Breezy said. “I love Karrueche very much but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna. I’d rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives.”
Of course, Breezy’s statement could be his way of publicly easing back into what some speculate is his now on-again relationship with Rihanna. The split with Tran comes just days after Breezy and RiRi were spotted making out at a New York City nightclub, and just hours after the two stepped out together to attend last night’s Jay-Z concert at the Barclays Center.
