Chris Brown and Rihanna are finally free to be together. After several seemed-to-be dates with his former flame Rihanna, Chris Brown has finally announced that he and his girlfriend of nearly two years, Karrueche Tran, are over.

In a statement to Hollywood Life, Chris explained, “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.”

The break-up isn’t all that surprising considering what has been going on the last few days. On October 1, Chris was spotted with Rihanna at NYC’s Griffin nightclub where the two allegedly engaged in some suspicious bathroom activity and were even seen at the same hotel later on that same night. The next night, they reunited again at 1Oak.

Last night, they took things to the next level at the Jay-Z concert and were even spotted holding hands and kissing. Following the concert, Chris took to his Twitter account to write, “Both r Free from it all!”

During Chris and Rihanna’s escapades, Karrueche was also in town — and she was not happy to hear of her man’s new found friendship with his ex-lover. In fact, the two were seen fighting outside of the Trump Hotel in Soho where she was staying. Following their fight, Karrueche reportedly gave Chris an ultimatum.

“[Karrueche] hit it a few hours ago. She mad at the [boy] and said to him ‘I’m leaving youre triffling punk ass’ and said ‘f–k you.’ He tried to calm her down — told her he didn’t want her to leave and went after her, but she scooted on him,” a source told Hollywood Life.

Late last night, Karrueche tweeted, “Bye baby.”
