    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.

    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”?

    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.

    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 Says:

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

    tsquared Says:

    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.

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

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

    lol fail Says:

    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 Says:

    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.

  35. 35
    Toni Says:

    @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 Says:

    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

    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.

    Lalalove Says:

    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!

  43. 43
    Lalalove Says:

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

    SUSAN Says:

    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.

    @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.

    Lola Says:

    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 ***** 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

    Sarah. Says:

    I’m so tired if this story! I never liked Chris Brown., and Rihanna is an idiot. Karrueche should be glad it’s over, she can do much better.

    maria Says:

    Agree with everything.
    I guess we all saw this coming. The shameful thing is that it’s not Karr dumping him for his behavior but he’s dumping her.
    Anyway Rihanna is just an idio_t and a slu_t. I can understand human forgiveness, but she shouldn’t be seeing him, leave alone saying on Oprah that he was the love of her life!!!
    If she didn’t find love after him she should just go on therapy and solve her issues.. Cause the guy is just a violent jerk.

  53. 53
    Sarah M Says:

    I think he had already hurt her by leaving her for another woman. She’s not happy, I don’t think she choose this but instead he had chosen it for her. Not to mention she’ll be seeing his face all over the place.
    I wish her all the best, she’ll find a better guy out there who will love her the way she deserves.

    lena Says:

    It’s unfortunate that rihanna and chris haven’t learned anything. whether she believes he has changed or not, it’s a proven fact that a couple who was once abusive (mentally, verbally, physically, etc) towards one another, will continually be abusive towards one another. maybe not right away and maybe not in the same capacity as the first time – but trust me, it’s coming back for you hunty.

    until she begins to love herself more than she loves this man/this volatile relationship and vice-versa, it’s going to f*ck up the both of them. i hope they both find the root to what it is that keeps them coming back to each other.

  55. 55
    Toni Says:

    What a two-faced hypocrite Rhianna is. The reason for the start of the fight between her and Chris, was that she caught him with a message from another girl on his phone. Now she’s broken up another’s relationship. Selfish, self-centered and a sl*t. The three ‘S’s of Rihanna!

    Humorme Says:

    If i could attribute one adjective to Rihanna, it would be pu$$y. Lol…she says how she’s ‘so hard’ and she’s a ‘bad b*tch.’ girl, please!

    Wouldn’t it be crazy if chris and rih got back together and he cheated on rih with kerreuche? It would repeat itself

    Nope Says:

    I can’t stand Rihanna anymore. She is ****** and desperate for attention. She and Chris Brown deserve each other. Two people whose talent and attention will hopefully fade within 10 years or less. Karreuche is very beautiful, but she should’ve known better. They pubicly humilitated her and Rihanna looks dumb and crazy ignorant defending Chris Brown, kissing each other, etc.

    keley Says:

    Poor girl. And Rihanna wtf is wrong with her?!! She got sympathy and attention a few years ago when she was beaten black and blue by Chris and showed pic of herself looking all brusied. And now she is hooking up with him when he had a gf and exptects ppl to still like her. Chris ia a douche bag and Rohanna is an attention *****, stealing a man with a gf.

    Angel Says:

    No one put a gun on chris brown head for him to go back to Rihanna, he follow his own feeling tht he want to get back with Rihanna as he was not force to do it..Rihanna was just revealing to him tht she stll have feelings fr him which she cant deny it or force it to have them n the feelings was mutual…If he real have strong feelings for Karrueche he could just be with her and nvr leave her…Chris follow ur heart n be with whoever you want to be with….Karrueche does nt own Chris…..Neither is owning the other partner its by a will…
