Chris Brown revealed during an interview with Los Angeles hip hop station Power 106 on Friday that he and Rihanna have called it quits.
Chris Brown, 23, made the revelation when the interviewer asked him directly, “Are you still with Rihanna?”
“Uh, no – that’s the short answer,” replied the rapper.
The radio station announced the news with a tweet that stated: “Are you still w/ @Rihanna?” @ChrisBrown: “Uh,no-that’s the short answer” just now to @BigBoy POWER 106 LA @TuneIn http://bit.ly/o1QLJd”
According to Fuse, the radio station plans to post the interview – which was recorded this week in Los Angeles and released in segments – online shortly.
Some fans have questioned whether the statement is true, but Power 106 is standing by the news, stating: “We wouldn’t have tweeted it if it wasn’t true.”
Rihanna, 25, meanwhile, sent out a tweet early Friday morning that may allude to the breakup, stating: “This is terrible.”
But she mysteriously deleted the message a short while later, choosing to rather re-tweet a message about her star sign Pisces: “It’s the heart of a #Pisces that makes us soft mannered BUT is that same heart of a #Pisces that will make us get in your ass if needed.”
The news comes just days after Chris Brown spoke at length with Ryan Seacrest about the pair’s reconciliation after he brutally beat her in a vicious 2009 attack, leaving her severely bruised and battered.
In his most candid interview yet, Chris Brown took full responsibility for the incident, admitting that the attack was completely his fault.
“It’s all about my responsibility,” the rapper told Ryan Seacrest in an interview with KIIS-FM radio on Tuesday.
Chris Brown says that he tried his best to reform himself over the years until the couple recently reconciled and that he was never sure that Rihanna would even speak to him again.
He added that he was “eternally grateful” that in the end Rihanna found it within herself to forgive him, leading to their reconciliation.
“I just tried my best to be the best man I could be over the years and just show her how remorseful and sorry I was for the incident and that time was probably the worst part of my life and being that she has and she’s a wonderful person I’m eternally grateful and thankful,” Chris Brown said.
