    Can’t say I didn’t see this coming

    will rihanna ever learn?! :|

  • Kirsten

    Rihanna and Chris Brown have the most dysfunctional relationship and they’re so young. Have some respect and take hold of your life. It’s not healthy and it’s pretty disturbing.

  • claire

    Finally. This girl has been disrespected by both Chris and Rihanna.

  • eunice

    In other words, rihanna and him are going to get back together. LOL

  • Jenna

    I really felt bad when I seen the picture’s of Rhianna and thought Chris was in need of help. Now I believe the stories about her having a hot temper and they both are violent toward each other. She has ALWAYS done things for attention. Let them have each other. But, the next time and there will be a next time she wants attention I hope she is ignored. Karrueche is beautiful and deserves better than a wannabe tough guy and his ex stalker psycho girlfriend who has been chasing him since they “broke up”?

  • keka

    GOOD! Hopefully she can find someone actually committed to a relationship and that isn’t a douchbagg. Rihanna can have fun playing Chris Brown’s personal human punching bag with they both give each other every possible VD on the surface of the planet.

  • ew

    I love how he says “friendship” with Rihanna. Psh as if we don’t know what you guys are doing locked in bathrooms together. Disgusting….

  • DB

    Yeah, like THIS is going to end well.

    Rihanna is digging her own grave on this one (hopefully not literally).

    She’s always been sort of a nutty freak, but this thing with Brown – it really is beyond the pale.

    If anybody even tried to have any respect for Rihanna before, I can’t see how they could possibly justify having any respect for her now.

  • Never Broke Up

    This was an arrangement that most likely all three knew about and benefited from — it is what it is!

  • DB

    When I was a kid, “friendship” did not involve inserting Tab A into Slot B

  • Jovi92

    Here we go…

  • SunnyAutumn

    Rihanna finally got what she wanted……

  • hooked

    Rihanna is a big silly hoe and who is Karrueche Tran? Of course she isn’t as famous as Rihanna and Rihanna is famous for copying songs. Everything is pure trash.

  • KAE

    Karrueche deserves better anyway

  • hm….

    you didnt need this rihanna, stupid people, they make me sick..

  • diane

    but riri and chris has chemistry

  • joshy

    I’m sad/happy for Karrueche

  • monica lewinsky

    Foolish woman. Rihanna will soon see the dangers of Chris Brown. I hope she learns this time around or it will be too late…
    Atleast Karrueche is safe.

  • A.

    Oh Rihanna… Karma plays no favourites.

  • rhymes9

    Why does he even need to mention Rihanna in the statement – what a slap in the face to his ex!

  • Euro

    Rihanna famous for giving good blowjobs.

  • Euro

    Rihanna famous for giving good blowjobs.

  • Selma

    Not surprised at all

  • hiie

    i feel so sorry for K.
    but more so on riri

  • Brittany

    and the countdown till Chris & Riri are back together starts NOW………smh!!!

  • AMy

    Wow, I can’t believe she wants to be back with her. She almost died. Oh well, second times the charm!

  • Oh Yeah!!!

    Chris I hope the next time you talk to a woman and Rihanna gets jealous and you two fight again that you don’t think the public won’t believe Rihanna and sent you to Prison. Chris B you are a FOOL to go back around Rihanna the Tramp & Biggest Liar!

  • XxXxX

    @DB: HA. Best comment ever, man.

  • eden

    run, girl, run. don’t you look back.

  • tsquared

    Wow. He and Rihanna are both douche bags. She knowingly goes out with him (and apparently does the deed etc with him) knowing he has a serious girlfriend. And he of course knows he has a serious girlfriend, but cheats on her anyhow? He and Rihanna deserve each other.

  • Amanda


    Guys use the word “friendship” when it’s a casual relationship.

    You really think CB plans to be faithful to Rihanna? LOL

  • lol fail

    Just Jared didn’t “confirm” this. TMZ did. Anyways, I hope fans now know that they are being played. Rihanna is NOT someone to look up to, and Chris is….trash. They both need mental help.

  • Toni

    I don’t care what no one says Rihanna has low self esteem and is no better than Kae (she let Chris do a lot of mess in front of her) with her self esteem. I get tired of people acting like Kae was he only one with low self esteem and was stupid for dealing with this disrespectful manchild.
    No one won in this and I don’t want to her another peep out of Rihanna being a “bad b***h” or “thug life” because she’s the opposite.

    Kae needs to get her self esteem together, remove some of those tattoos, know she got the good end of the stick, and do something with her life and move on. Let Chris Brown and Rihanna deal with each other.

  • Toni

    @Amanda: Thank you Rihanna is stupid if she think Chris won’t cheat on her especially since she was cheating with him while he had a girlfriend and the whole incident in 09 happened because of his cheating.

  • words

    okay. karrueche may be hurt. and HE ends it over a “friendship” to be “single” for the “career”?

    wtf? weird statement (nonsense). who wrote that first? :D

  • Olly

    Rihanna is just a crazy bitch anyway

  • Zosha

    Hey everyone makes mistakes and learn from them. Haven’t all you who have nothing but sni remarks. You focus on your life and let them focus on theres. I wonder what happens at your all home behind closed doors, bet it’s not always a bed of roses!

  • Charlotte

    Oh, very sad, Im not going to sleep tonight thinking about….

  • Amanda


    The problem is they haven’t learned anything and they haven’t changed. Neither of them has been in therapy. CB still has anger management issues. Rihanna has low self esteem. They both need professional help.

  • http://@Ambreezi3 @Ambreezi3

    What can i say? They were meant for eachother… what goes around comes around…..

  • Lalalove

    ROFL I’m sorry, but that girl was blind as a bat. Either that or she just enjoyed his d**k, or the free things that came with being his girlfriend, and the little fame she got. Dumb broad. She should have see this coming and fled ages ago. The love triangle has ended. He has been creeping around with Rihanna since day one. I would have at least been gone after that “Birthday Cake” remix dropped. This is so messy. I don’t feel sorry for anyone involved. Good luck to them all!

  • Lalalove

    By the way, Rihanna is ratchet for hooking up with him, if she did, while he was still dating that girl.


    I have read enough of this messed, when did Karrueche and CB become serious in the relationship, after all the women he slept with and she allow. How about the women she brought home to him from the club. How about all the times he picked up women when she was with him. Their relationship was never serious, more like friends with benefits.

  • Emma

    Thug leaves rebound girl for former punching bag.

  • betty

    @DB Haven’t you heard of about friends with benefits> That’s the latest. They are both young who wants commitment at that age. Rihanna claimed she loved him so if she wants to give another go with him that’s her prerogative.

  • Truthie

    Rihanna is one dumb *itch. I hope her career goes downill. Oh wait, that’s already happening.

  • KissThis

    No sh!t. He’s cheating on her with Rihanna.

  • Oh Yeah!!!

    Once a Cheater always a Cheater! Rihanna you couldn’t leave him with Karruche????

  • Lola

    I love how all of you feel suddenly sorry for Karrueche! It’s freaking funny!! Up til yesterday none of you knew her and if you did you called her an attention whore or an idiot for being with Chris Brown. And now all of a sudden she is a poor thing…Pff Pathetic. You don’t even know any of them let them live their lives and entertain us
