Chris Brown has confirmed he has split from his model girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
In statement, the 'Turn The Music Up singer expressed that he didn't want Karrueche to be upset over his friendship with ex-girlfriend Rihanna, so he has decided to remain single for the near future.
"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," the letter reads.
Adding: "I'd rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives."
The announcement comes after mounting speculation the 23-year-old plans to reconcile with the Bajan singer, who he infamously assaulted in 2009.
