It appears that Chris Brown and his long-suffering girlfriend Karrueche Tran are no more.

Hollywood Life, known for reading deeply into innocuous tweets sent by Breezy and his ex Rihanna, claims to have received an exclusive statement from Brown, indicating that he and Tran are officially O-V-E-R.

The site says that Brown issued this official and exclusive statement to them:

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.

Hmm. If this is indeed an official statement, let's dissect it.

Breezy acknowledges that his "friendship" with Rihanna is painful for Tran, given the rumors, the innuendo and RiRi's rampant declarations of love, not to mention last night's (Oct. 3) "date night" at a very public concert. But then he says that he'd rather be "single," as opposed to saying, "I'd rather be with Rihanna" or with someone else.

That could just be Breezy's way of protecting Tran's feelings and not hurting her anymore.

We're thinking in a few weeks, ChRihanna will confirm their couplehood. We dunno what that guy has, but ladies love him. Rihanna admitted he still does it for her during her Oprah chat, while Tran has stuck by him through all the drama, fights, Rihanna rumors and beyond.
