Celebrated his 24th birthday with his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran over the weekend.
The singer has now given an interview about Rihanna, during which he implies they have decided to separate.
"Imma do it solo. I mean, at the end of the day, shawty doing her own thang, she on the road. It's always gonna be love. I'm a grown man, just gotta fast forward,” he told Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O radio show when asked why Rihanna wasn’t partying with him.
“I’ll just put it like this, one thing I always want to do is never disrespect nobody or put nobody down. The way I look at it is that I am always gonna love that person and people have different wants and needs.”
Last week Chris unfollowed Rihanna on Twitter and she has previously told the audience at one of her shows that she finds love confusing.
The R&B singer appeared to blame the split on 25-year-old Rihanna’s age.
“At the end of the day, she’s a young girl. I can’t really be focused on wifing someone that young. And I’m young too so I can’t focus on that right now,” he said.
"I gotta step forward and be a man and be the best Chris Brown I can be instead of worrying about whoever else is gonna be on my side pocket.”
Chris and Rihanna initially split after he assaulted her 2009. There was intense speculation they had reconciled in 2012 and she confirmed the news in January, claiming she knew what she was doing and he had changed.
