Chris Brown says he has officially BROKEN UP with his girlfriend Karrueche Tran ...  explaining, "I don't want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna."

Brown just made the announcement ... saying, "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."

He adds, "I'd rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives."

The announcement comes after Brown and Rihanna were spotted together at the Jay Z concert in Brooklyn last night. The two had been hanging around each other A LOT lately ... and did some hardcore flirting at the MTV VMAs.

Karrueche had posted a cryptic tweet last night reading, "Bye baby."

Now it makes sense.

There goes her meal ticket. I don't understand why Rihanna would want CB. He's never going to commit to her. He's not looking for a relationship.

I am sick and tired of people trying to make Rhianna out to be the spokesperson for domestic violence. Everyobody's situation is different and there is a possibility that wow maybe this was an isolated incident. Chris was 19 yrs old when the event happened and his mother was abused, he was a bed-wetter as a child all things that probably went into him exploding that day. He has not hit a woman since and he dated this chick Karukachu for 2 yrs and the paparozzo's were watching like a hawk to see if he would. He has to live under a microscope and I'd like to see some of you all's perfect lives since you get off by judging him and their friendship/relationship. She knows him alot better than any of us on this site and she knows the intimate details of his life and that incident so whatever she chooses to do is her business. But some of yall bitter babies are using your own issues against him like he's the worst monster in the world. I see yall taking up for child molesters and mass murders and going harder at a young boy for one mistake.

Karrueche dodged a bullet. Too bad Rihanna thinks so little of herself.

I just think Rihanna and he are bad together. I worry for her safety. She's an adult. I just hope she doesn't have a repeat of last time. I guess we will see.

Hopefully, Rhianna puts that firearm training with the AR-15 in Las Vegas to good use in the next round.

Rihana is crazy, Chirs Brown is crazy and the both deserve each other, pathologic relationship. Rihanna is that kindof woman who enjoy bad treatment from men enjoy violence on relatioship she's a crazy chick.
