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.

Chris WILL beat her again and I won't feel sorry for her. She is stupid and has a low self esteem. She also watched her father beat her mother so she thinks violence against women is acceptable. Also it is obvious that Chris was cheating on his gf for a long time! He is lying to call it a friendship. Please! He has been sleeping with Rhianna for months. I also have read on ROL that his girlfriend dumped him! Regardless it was wrong to publicly state that he broke up with her and chose to be single. That is classless just like John Mayer said about Jennifer Aniston. Also there is no way he loved his girlfriend because you don't cheat on someone you love especially as openly as he did kissing her at the VMAs! Chris is a woman beater and sleazeball. I hope he goes to jail for violating his probation and makes friends with Bubba. LOL

Call me crazy, but I think we're misinterpreting the whole situation. I honestly think that Chris and Rihanna are just friends.

Karruche gave up on Chris against the media. They're saying that he was kissing at the club. Well, where is the picture?

Pleeese! Karreuche probably dumped him and he's spinning it to make himself sound like he is something that he definitely is not.
