It’s been a long week in the Chris Brown/Karrueche/Rihanna love triangle, but now, we know what we suspected is official. Chris has ended things with longtime girlfriend Karrueche over his “friendship” with Rihanna.
In an exclusive statement to Gossip Cop, Chris stated:
“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. I’d rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives.”
Chris and Rihanna were spotted together multiple times while in NYC this week, but nothing was more telling than the cryptic messages he and Karrueche both sent out on Twitter last night.
Once Karrueche tweeted “Bye Baby,” and Chris was spotted just a short while later cuddled up with Rihanna in the VIP section at the Barclays Center while checking out a Jay-Z concert, it was clear that there was trouble in paradise for the couple who have been dating since 2011.
We’re happy to see Chris focusing on his career, working on both himself and his relationship with Rihanna.
UPDATE: 2:40PM EST
Karrueche has not released an official statement, but sources close to the model have talked to TMZ about her recent break-up with Chris Brown.
Chris Brown‘s ex-girlfriend ain’t buyin’ that Chris is “just friends” with Rihanna … telling her peeps she’s convinced they were bangin’ behind her back.
We spoke to multiple sources connected to Karrueche Tran … who tell us KT feels betrayed by Chris because he had promised her that she was the only woman in his life … especially when she probed him about his feelings toward Rihanna.
We’re told Karrueche had suspected something was up between the two of them for weeks because Chris was acting differently — going to clubs alone, acting distant and ramping up his public appearances with Rihanna.
Sources say Karrueche told friends she truly loved Chris … and felt that the relationship was great until Rihanna let Brown back into her life.
We reached out to Karrueche for comment — so far, no word back.
Wow. Stay tuned for the latest.
