Rihanna, Chis Brown & Karrueche Tran

*TMZ is reporting that it’s officially over between Chris Brown and his girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

According to the website, Brown himself broke the news today, announcing: “I have decided to be single to focus on my career. I love Karrueche very much but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna.”

He adds, “I’d rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives.”

The breakup comes in the wake of Brown and Rihanna attending Jay-Z’s concert in Brooklyn together on Wednesday. Earlier this week, they were spotted kissing and making out at a club in Manhattan.

Karrueche had posted a cryptic tweet last night reading, “Bye baby.”

Hmm, a blind man can see where this is headed.
