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.

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.

Chris did the right thing by breaking up with his girlfriend if he still has feeling for Rihanna he should be single!

Chris won't even admit to loving Rihanna yet she sticks by him even as he is hooking up with her in a dirty club bathroom, letting his friends stand outside the bathroom door openly mocking her,and telling the world that all Rihanna is to him is fwb. Ladies, actions always speak louder than words. Karrueche is lucky she got away without getting pregnant but she'd better get STD tests-all of them. Karrueche has low self esteem so she'll probably run back. She should get a rapper upgrade and let Chris cry about it for the rest of his pathetic life.

Damn that is messed up. See that kinda made me lose my last bit of respect for Chris. Honestly, the beating incident with Rihanna, I think it was wrong but it was obviously a mistake. The thing with Karrueche is unforgivable though. You don't say, "I don't want you to be hurt over my friendship" and then ditch the girlfriend. That's not how it works. You say, "I don't want you to be hurt over my friendship" and then ditch your friend. You don't tell someone you don't want to hurt them and then go and hurt them. And you don't very publicly break up with one girl for another girl. That's not right or fair to people's feelings. It's one thing to be in the heat of the moment, so angry that you use your fists instead of talking. It's another thing to be of perfectly sound mind and go breaking someone's heart when you're entirely in the wrong.
