Chris Brown On Rihanna Split: ‘Can’t Focus On Wife-ing Her’

Chris Brown has acknowledged his most recent breakup with Rihanna, confirming that the volatile on-again, off-again pair were off-again as of now.

Chris Brown and Rihanna have a famously tumultuous pairing, culminating in a violent 2009 incident in which the R&B singer was arrested for violently attacking the Umbrella singer and physically injuring her.

Brown has resented the negative publicity for some time now, frequently whining that no one has forgotten his brutal outburst.

But now it seems Team Breezy can rejoice in their hero being back on the market, as he dished about his ostensible split from Rihanna to an Aussie radio show.

Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie Show, Brown says that he will always have affection for Rihanna — but he seems to indicate that for now, he’s playing the field.

Brown mused:

“I’mma do it solo. I mean, at the end of the day, shawty doing her own thang, she on the road. It’s always gonna be love. I’m a grown man, just gotta fast forward … I’m always gonna love that person. I cant be focused on wife-ing someone that young. I need to be the best Chris Brown I can be.”

And while Brown was spotted out with another former flame, Karrueche Tran, Yahoo says he eschewed her company for that of random women:

“He didn’t appear to be paying much attention to her and was partying around a lot of girls.”

A friend of Rihanna’s appears to confirm the Chris Brown split, saying of the pair’s relationship status:

“Of course tomorrow they could be all over each other again, but for now she’s done and just living her life and touring. It’s how it always is.”

If history is any indication, however, it doesn’t seem that Chris Brown and Rihanna are able to quit each other — at least not for very long.
