Chris Brown is remorseful over his Karrueche attack and -- without specifically saying it -- seems to be explaining his anger issues that go way back to Rihanna.
CB put his on-again/off-again GF Karrueche Tran on blast over the weekend ... insinuating she cheated with Drake and saying,"F*** that b****!"
In his apology, Brown accurately states that "being young and dumb is one of my strong suits" and that he is simply guilty of loving too hard. But then he offers the flip side ... that he reacts "impulsively when I'm hurt at times."
He went on to say that everyone knows he really loves Karrueche and he doesn't care how he comes across to the public ... "because I'm still gonna be the best at what I do. I just want baby girl to know I apologize."
Fool me once ...
Chris Brown and Karrueche
He Says She Banged Drake
She Plays the 'Mistreatment' Card
12/7/2014 7:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Things have gotten even more nuclear between Chris Brown and his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran ... and now Drake's been dragged into it, making him the Camilla Parker Bowles in the relationship.
Brown just ripped into Karrueche on Instagram, calling her a cheater, saying, "I was locked up for damn near 4 months and only got 1 visit from you while u was hosting parties and taking secret trips to Toronto, going on dates with Drake."
Chris fired his salvo after Karrueche went on the attack, explaining their breakup this way ... "I refuse to be repeatedly mistreated especially by someone who claims to love me. That's not love."
As if it really needs translation ... Chris is calling out Karrueche, who publicly made it look like she was standing by him when he was jailed earlier this year. As for Drake ... well, you remember W.i.P. nightclub, right? That fight involved Rihanna and the 2 seemed to squash the beef ... but it's clearly back in force.
And as for Karrueche's comment ... after the Rihanna beating, the word "mistreated" has all sorts of meaning when it comes to Chris, and Karrueche knows it.
Karrueche added, "If you can't love me the right way, then don't love me at all."
Short story ... the atomic bomb war has just gone full hydrogen.
I'm Single Now ...
12/6/2014 7:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown has never been good at breaking up with women ... something he proved again Friday night in L.A. during a concert -- when he formally announced he's single by putting Karrueche on blast.
It all went down at Power 106's annual Cali Christmas ... when halfway through Brown's set the singer asked the crowd if there were any single women in the house.
After a brief pause, you hear Chris say, "I'm single too!" ... he then throws a heaping pile of shade at his now ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, saying, "F*** that b****!"
But he wasn't done ... after the show the singer posted a picture on Instagram -- with THREE Kardashian's on his lap, which frankly sounds impossible.
After the pics were posted ... Karrueche tweeted, "N****s be in they feelings when you break up with them lol."

With Hot New Chick
12/5/2014 9:22 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ryan Seacrest has broken up with his girlfriend -- so we've learned -- and is out on the town with a new, attractive blonde chick.
Ryan was leaving the GQ Men of the Year party Thursday night at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood and his GF of more than a year-and-a-half, Shayna Terese Taylor, was nowhere in sight. That's because we're told Seacrest said bye bye.
Ryan -- who's turning 40 the day before XMAS -- apparently likes being single ... and it's obvious why.

Ed Sheeran always looks a little uncomfortable, but he kicked it up a notch when he ran into his ex-gf Ellie Goulding. Y'know ... the ex he says cheated on him with one of those 1Ders.
Typical, right? Boy meets girl, girl cheats on boy with other boy, boy gets super awkward hug from girl ... while strangers watch.

Has Gotta Go, ASAP!

Nothing says you're 100% done with an ex like a laser burning his name away -- just ask Iggy Azalea ... who's finally getting her A$AP Rocky tattoo removed.
The "Fancy" singer went to the Beverly Hills office of tattoo removal king, Dr. Tattoff on Tuesday -- and walked out with a bandage on her left pinky ... where A$AP's name once lived.
Iggy got the tatt years ago when they were dating. When they split, she just had his name crossed out ... but now she's making a permanent change.
Finally ... room for some fresh Nick Young ink.

Runs Into Not One
... But Two Famous Exes
12/2/2014 7:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
It's a question for the ages ... if you're going to run into two of your exes at a party, would you rather have two separate awkward encounters ... or an enormous one?
One Direction's Harry Styles chose the second option at Monday night's British Fashion Awards in London ... where he schmoozed Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne.
Styles was linked to Delevingne last September and Jenner just a few months later.
The scariest part for Harry ... Kendall and Cara came to the party together.
Comparing notes ... worst nightmare.

11/30/2014 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Mama June is trying to repair her relationship with Sugar Bear, and he's game to give it a second try ... so she says.
June tells TMZ ... Sugar Bear is back living full-time in the homestead and they are "working on the relationship." She admits it was damaged and Sugar Bear is hurt over her decision to reignite her relationship with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel.
June says they don't consider themselves "back together" and it will "take a lot of work" to regain his trust.
She tells us she did see McDaniel after he was released from prison in March ... something she lied about after we broke the story. But now she says, "I'm human, I made mistakes and done wrong, but no one is perfect."
June says she no longer has any contact with McDaniel.

Robin Thicke is clearly thankful for one thing this holiday season ... his super hot new girlfriend.
Thicke was rolling through Malibu Friday with the top down ... showing off 19-year-old April Love Geary -- and the guy looked pretty damn care free.
Robin's had a tough year -- see here, here and here -- so he's gotta be stoked to be moving on.
Plus, April looks really hot naked. That always helps.
My Ex's Abortion Is Fair Game
We're Too Famous for Privacy
11/26/2014 10:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Floyd Mayweather is firing back at his ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson -- claiming he did NOT violate her right to privacy by discussing her abortion in detail on social media ... because their relationship was for public consumption anyway.
As we previously reported, Jackson sued Mayweather earlier this year for a bunch of different reasons -- including assault, battery, defamation, invasion of privacy and more.
Now, Floyd is trying to get the several claims dismissed -- and in new legal docs, he focused on her claim that he violated her right to privacy. He starts off his argument in the most Mayweather way possible:
"At age 37 I am an undefeated boxer. I have been the world champion in five different weight divisions."
He goes on to explain that when he met Jackson, "she asked me to help her become famous" ... and stated that her only semblance of fame was appearing in 7 music videos.
Floyd says he used his celebrity to help build her up -- and says they became so famous, people were interested in every aspect of their relationship ... including the breakup.
Which is why Floyd says he went to social media earlier this year and told the world he ended things with Shantel because she had an abortion behind his back.
"Both parties are public figures. Abortion is a public issue," Mayweather states in the docs.
He adds, "A public figure involved with another public figure in a public relationship can expect publicity, not privacy, about why it ends."
Mayweather wants the suit thrown out asap. A judge has yet to rule.
Suck It Jordin ...
I'm The King Of My Own Castle Now
11/26/2014 10:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jordin Sparks may be a damsel in distress ... but now that she's trashed him, she won't be welcome at Jason Derulo's new castle.
Jason bragged about his new medieval digs -- insinuating he doesn't care that Jordin is now trashing him -- by tweeting that he's moved on to bigger and better things: "I bought myself a castle 2day!! No big deal."
Jason isn't directly responding to Jordin's new single in which she essentially calls him an ingrate and an a-hole. But he started it by putting her on blast for allegedly pressuring him to tie the knot.
As for his $3 million acquisition deep in the San Fernando Valley ... it's 10,000 square feet, outfitted with turrets, a dungeon, a basketball/tennis court, and a lap pool -- standard issue for land barons.
It's like Henry VIII moved to Tarzana ... which sounds like a CW show.
Tears Into Jason Derulo
You Ungrateful SOB
11/25/2014 2:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jordin Sparks puts even Taylor Swift to shame by mercilessly going after ex-BF Jason Derulo, calling him out as a vengeful ingrate.
Sparks' SCUD missile takes the form of a mixtape, "#BYEFELICIA," featuring "How Bout Now (Remix)" ... it's a Drake song reworked to rip Derulo.
"Member I deleted all my other guys numbers on my phone for you.
Member when you broke your neck and I had to wash your back for you.
You probably don't remember half the shit that i did for you."
And it goes on ...
"Once you blew up, head got big and you started changing.
Can't believe all the things that you started saying.
Like I'm with you for your fame and your name. What?"
The couple split back in September after a 3-year romance. After the split Jason trashed Jordin, saying she was pressuring him to marry her.
We reached out to Derulo ... so far, no word back.
