Chris Brown and his loyal girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, have reportedly called it quits, so that he can focus on more important things like his career and maybe…Rihanna. The R&B singer, who just completed a rehabilitation program, sparked rumors about their break up after he stopped following Tran on Twitter shortly after being released from the treatment facility on Thursday.
Brown recently completed 90 days of court-ordered treatment for anger issues but decided to remain in the facility in Malibu for a few extra days until he felt confident he wouldn’t slip up again. The singer was ordered to seek anger management instead of being sentenced to jail when his probation, stemming from his violent assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, was formally revoked as a result of an alleged assault on Parker Adams in Washington D.C. in October.
KT was by Chris’ side during his court appearances, she visited him in rehab on holidays to keep his mood up, and she generally put all of his needs in front of hers. “She loves him unconditionally no matter the mistakes [he’s made],” a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively in January.
“He’s well aware that she wants a commitment from him but he’s not ready for all that,” another source unveiled after Chris got out of rehab. It seems that his indecision may have finally overwhelmed the relationship.
A ‘renewed interest’ in Rihanna is rumored to be another reason behind Brown’s decision to split. Reportedly, the two former lovers have been exchanging flirtatious text messages for weeks now.
One source revealed, “Chris started texting Rihanna on her birthday [Feb. 20], and the two have been sending each other a flurry of texts ever since.”
The source added, “Rihanna didn’t write back right away . . . but later that night she started getting sentimental and texted back, ‘thank you,’ and asked how he was,” the insider revealed. “Since then, the two haven’t stopped texting each other and friends are freaked out that she’s going to start dating him again.”
The source added that friends are “freaking out” that she might be considering hooking up with Brown, despite the fact that he appears to be in a committed relationship with Tran.
Meanwhile, Karrueche seems to handle the split okay, as she attended OK! Magazine’s pre-Oscars party held at Greystone Manor on Thursday night. Earlier this week, Tran posted a picture of herself holding a sign that read, “Treat Your Girl Right,” and posted a quote on her Instagram that read, “Flow with whatever may happen and let your mind be free: Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.”
Thousands of miles away, Rihanna was flaunting her single status as she partied in a sheer top at the Balmain after-party at notorious Parisian strip club Crazy Horse. She’s also been spotted spending time with rapper Drake in the French capitol, says Radar Online.
Drake and Brown have bad history after they got into a bottle-throwing altercation at a New York nightclub after Drake reportedly sent note saying, “I’m [bleeping] the love of your life.”
