Chris Brown and Rihanna have been in the news recently with photos of the two surfacing at various events, including Jay-Z's fifth concert at the Barclays centre last night.

Many have speculated what will become of Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran, his current girlfriend. Well it seems that she is no longer his 'current' girlfriend, as Brown confirmed to HollywoodLife.Com that he has broken things off with Tran. The reason behind it? His friendship with Rihanna.

He says of the split, "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."

Check out a photo of Rih Rih and Breezy in the V.I.P. section of Jay-Z's show last night, where the two were allegedly holding hands and kissing. Karreuche also tweeted late last night, "Bye baby," perhaps directed towards Brown.

What do you guys think? Could this all be rumors or is there truth in here?
