Chris Brown Confirms Rihanna Split

Breezy says he and Rih Rih are doing their own thing.

Chris Brown's and Rihanna's love has hit another sour note. Rather than let the rumor mill run rampant for too long, Breezy confirmed to Australia's Kyle & Jackie O show Sunday (May 5) that he and Rihanna have split (again). Speaking about his birthday, Brown announced that he'd be celebrating as a single man. "I really wanna see as many girls as possible," he said. "I'm do [this birthday] solo. At the end of the day, shorty [Rihanna's] doing her thing, she on the road.

"It's always gon' be love but I'ma do me. I'm a grown man so I just gotta' walk forward."

The 24-year-old didn't go too deep into detail but from the sounds of it, the relationship's end may have been spearheaded by Rihanna, which he eluded to on the song "I Can't Win," released last week. "People have different wants and needs," he explained. "At the end of the day she [Rihanna's] a young girl. I can't really be focused on wife-ing somebody that young…and I'm young too, so I can't focus on that right now. I just gotta step forward and be a man, and be the best Chris Brown I can be, instead of worrying about whoever else is going to be in my side pocket."

Now that he's single, the "Fine China" crooner hasn't wasted much time getting back into the swing of things. He celebrated his birthday in Los Angeles and Las Vegas over the weekend, re-linking with ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, who partied with the Virginia native on Friday (May 3) night.

Apparently unable to keep all of his feelings inside, Twitter later became the forum for a series of now deleted post-split tweets. "N---a can't even be happy on his birthday! I'm over trying to please y'a'll I'm catching any FADES. On god! I'm wit all the bulls---," he wrote. "I'm personally so f---ing tired of people it's sick! Who made ya'll god!!!! Society is f---ing overrated and a bunch of followers."

Rihanna's hasn't yet responded to Brown's interview, but since the 25-year-old's health is on the mend, her focus is likely on finishing up the Diamonds World Tour, which rolled into New York City last night.
