Chris Brown confirms Rihanna split: ‘I can’t be wife-ing someone that young’

Chris Brown

Ah, young love — so naive, so immature, and (in the case of Chris Brown and Rihanna) so violent and tiresomely repetitious. It was only a few months ago that Rihanna was spending her Piscean birthday in Hawaii with Breezy, and Chris was soon so overcome with joy at their reunion that he was delivering expletive-filled rants on how to keep “a bad bitch” in line. Romantic, right?

Well, the good times didn’t last long at all. Soon enough, word on the street was that Chris was fooling around with a beautiful waitress, and then he and Rihanna were quickly at odds, which was confirmed when he threw a major fit and unfollowed her on Twitter after Chris stalked Rihanna’s profile and saw that she was following Drake. Last weekend, Chris partied with Karrueche Tran at his birthday party while Rihanna was in NYC, and now Chris has officially confirmed that he and RiRi are “off again”:


Shocker! Once again, Chris Brown and Rihanna have parted ways, romantically speaking — so said Brown during a recent interview with Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie Show.

The “Don’t Wake Me Up” crooner, who turned 24 on Sunday, May 5, was detailing his multiple birthday celebrations (in L.A., Las Vegas and NYC) when he was asked about his chronically on-again, off-again love Rihanna, 25.

“Imma do it solo,” he said, citing his erstwhile girlfriend’s touring schedule, compounded by his own full slate. “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.”

The love’s certainly not gone, he reiterated, but personal and professional commitments make the relationship too difficult right now, he said. “I’m always gonna love that person. I can’t be focused on wife-ing someone that young. I need to be the best Chris Brown I can be,” he explained.

Indeed, Brown reunited with his other on-and-off love, Karrueche Tran, during his birthday bash in Hollywood last Friday — but, alas, according to an onlooker, “He didn’t appear to be paying much attention to her and was partying around a lot of girls.”

Adds a source close to Rihanna of the latest split: “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.”

Hmm, I hate to say it, but Chris makes a tiny bit of sense in his claims that both he and Rihanna are too young to be married, which is a particularly shocking thing to hear from the mouth of a dude who acts like he’s 12 years old at any given moment. That’s probably the smartest thing he’s ever said, and hopefully being “the best Chris Brown I can be” means that he’ll never hit a woman ever again. One can only hope.

Basically, it sounds like Chris and Rihanna have merely stopped being girlfriend and boyfriend, but they’ll probably hook up again in a few weeks or months, and hopefully, no one will be surprised at this development.

    I hope she finally moves on from that crack-head.

      Chris is no catch but neither is Rihanna! They would do well to keep apart- theres a douchebag overload when they are together.

      What happened to Rihanna was terrible, no one deserves a beating. However, she has benefitted from it to the extent that it cemented a victim-good-girl image. Even when shes truly psychotic its brushed off with a “shes just a damaged good girl”.

      Also (and I know I sound like a CB apologist) Chris doesnt need to stalk her Instagram to know about the Drake follow. They both have obsessive fans who track EVERYTHING they do. No doubt afew hundred would be tweeting him 30 seconds after she did it.

    Praise Jesus!

    (Until they inevitably get back together again. *sigh*)

    As an aside, I hope Anne Hathaway (and her new, truly horrible, try-hard hair) are taking notes on how those strappy over-the-knee boots should really be done!

    I would like to volunteer to teach Chris Brown something approximating proper English. You’re 24 and successful; it’s embarrassing to hear you open your mouth and speak as though you were a high school thug.

    • Jano1981 says:

      Ha! If I didn’t already hate that idiot this would have sealed the deal. He used every stupid word didn’t he? It’s like he plugged his comment into a dumb kid lingo app or something. Not only that but it seems disrespectful to refer to a top selling artist we know better than him downgraded to shorty. Idk. Don’t even like Rihanna but that seems disrespectful and telling. Surprising, he doesn’t respect women!?!?

  5. judyjudy says:

    He’s very well-spoken.

  6. Itsjustblanche. says:

    What a waste of air.

  7. elceibeno08 says:

    I have no sympathy left for a masoquist girl like Rihanna. Let her learn the hard way about Chris Brown.

  8. Jules says:

    What a douche. He talks like one as well.

  9. teehee says:

    LOL what a transparent excuse!

  10. the original bellaluna says:

    WTF is going on with her shoe/boot situation?!?

    And Chris needs to learn how to speak English, not Ebonics.

    (No offence to anyone intended.)

  11. Lulu.T.O. says:

    I like her couture knee braces. 0_o

    She’s such a pretty girl. Much too pretty to be in thrall with such a neanderthal. Hey, that rhymes!

  12. Rhea says:

    Grow up, please. Both of them!! -_-’

  13. teehee says:

    Oh and I just noticed– what a huge insult– to leave her is to help be the best he can be—- OUCH. You asshat!

  14. Maya Memsaab says:

    What an eloquent man. He must have high tea with Oscar Wilde himself.

  15. Barrett says:

    Ha. He like speaks in code.

  16. The Original Mia says:

    What a lovely fellow. Not. This is the POS Rihanna thinks has matured and is a better man after the beatdown. I just don’t see it.

  17. Jolinda says:

    Good riddance to Chris!

  18. ShaCur says:

    I wonder what happened to the million dollar car she was rumored to be giving him for his bday….everytime he speaks I feel my IQ drop 10 points.

  19. Shelly says:

    God, he is gross. And somewhere, someday, when Rihanna has matured, she will be down on her knees thanking God that “imma” don’t have to be with that douche anymore.

  20. Yes why would he want to be married to a dennys waitress trash type and why would she want to be married to the thug who holds up your local gas station….oh wait that is a good match. They will get back together.

  21. Green Is Good says:

    At least they apparently used birth control.

  22. Holly says:

    Love the last picture: What has two thumbs and is a total douchenozzle? Heheheh…

  23. Boom boom says:

    It’s a sick relationship they have . I eat she was really pushing the ” true” soul mate angle on him while he was just wanting to get accepted into mainstream media again. Once she got back with him, it almost put a stamp of approval on him to be accepted.
    He just used her and she wasnt smart enough to figure that is his angle. Maybe she will grow up a little after this.
