The two stars, Chris Brown and Rihanna, have been on-and-off for several months, with Brown sparking speculation they are no longer together after he celebrated his 24th birthday with his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran over the weekend.

But now it seems that the couple have broken up once again, but this time it looks like he is the one behind the split.

Even after Chris, 24, hinted he might finally be ready to settle down with his teenage sweetheart after admitting last month he’s ready for a one woman relationship.

He insisted he will remain faithful despite the infamous love triangle with model Karrueche Tran and salivating when chatting about hosting a foam party with girls in bikinis for his birthday.

However, during an interview with Australia’s 2Day radio show “The Kyle and Jackie Show”, Brown admitted he and Rihanna have split, and that she would not be on hand to celebrate his 24th birthday on May 5, E! News notes.

Last week Brown unfollowed Rihanna on Twitter and she has previously told the audience at one of her shows that she finds love confusing.

The RnB star revealed: “I’ve actually got three birthday parties scheduled, I got one in LA, one in Vegas and one in New York so we can gonna have fun.

“And I’m just trying to have, you know, the best time with my fans and all the people in the club.”

On the question whether he’ll be there alone, Brown answered: “Yeah, Imma do it solo.”

He continued: “I mean, at the end of the day, shawty doing her thang, she on the road … It’s always gonna be love. I’m just gonna do me. I’m a grown man. Just gotta fast forward.”

When asked if he feels that he and Rihanna are soulmates, Brown said there will always be love between them.

The R&B singer appeared to blame the split on 25-year-old Rihanna’s age.

“At the end of the day, she’s a young girl. I can’t really be focused on wifing someone that young. And I’m young too so I can’t focus on that right now,” he said.

“I gotta step forward and be a man and be the best Chris Brown I can be instead of worrying about whoever else is gonna be on my side pocket.”

On Saturday, Brown celebrated his birthday at The Mirage’s 1Oak nightclub in Las Vegas. Rumor has it that his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran was in attendance.

Us Weekly reported that Tran also made an appearance at Brown’s Hollywood birthday party at Emerson Theatre on Friday. A source said she “didn’t look very happy” because he was surrounded by gaggle of other girls and didn’t pay her much mind.

Meanwhile, Barbadian beauty, 25, is doing her ‘own thing’ in New York and was pictured on a night out wearing a sexy outfit with a plunging neckline.

She’s currently in the Big Apple on tour and did her trademark crotch-grab during her concert at the Barclays Center, says the Mirror.

It’s unlikely she’ll be too surprised by the latest developments in her love life.

Brown and Rihanna initially split after he assaulted her 2009. There was intense speculation they had reconciled in 2012 and she confirmed the news in January, claiming she knew what she was doing and he had changed.
