It’s official: Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran are dunzo. We know, we know; we really thought that they’d last forever! But according to Chris himself, the split occurred over his increasingly close friendship with Rihanna. Relations between the infamous ex’s have started to heat up exponentially in recent days with rumors of sex in club bathrooms, hotel rendezvous, and Jay-Z concert dates, and it seems like Karrueche has been caught in the crossfire. She tweeted a series of sarcastic and bitter tweets yesterday as Brown essentially ditched her and hit the town with Riri, culminating with a simple but telling “Bye baby.”
“I love Karrueche very much but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna,” Brown told Us Weekly. “I’d rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives.” Allegations that Chris and Rihanna were hooking up secretly have been present pretty much since the start of his relationship with Karreuche back in February. The ladies made no effort to hide the fact that they aren’t too fond of one another, even throwing barbs at each other on Twitter.
Chris and Rihanna’s kiss at the VMAs only served to wedge the couple even further apart. “She felt the kiss was a public slap in the face,” a source said to Us. “Seeing him with Rihanna at such a public event made her very angry.” But the final straw came these last few days as Chris publicly flaunted his proximity to Rihanna, perhaps trying to provite Karrueche to do the dirty work and end their flagging relationship. “Chris really wants to be free to pursue Rihanna now that she wants him back. They will be together, trust me,” the source continued. “I always told you he’d go back to Rihanna in a heartbeat when she was ready.”
