On-again off-again couple Chris Brown and Rihanna are officially off again.
During a new interview with Australian radio station 2DayFm, the 24-year-old singer admitted the pair have taken another hiatus.“I’mma do it solo,” Chris told the DJ about their breakup, adding that their busy schedules put a wedge between him and Ri. “I mean, at the end of the day, shawty doing her own thing, she on the road. It’s always gonna be love. I’m a grown man, just gotta move forward.”

The "Pour It Up" songstress took the stage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn the same day as her ex's b-day. An eyewitness tells Life & Style that though she was upbeat for almost the entire show, she sang a much different tune during her encore.“It wasn't until the very end of the show — when she came out to sing 'Stay' and 'Diamonds' — that her mood changed,” the concertgoer tells Life & Style. “She turned very serious during 'Stay' and belted from her heart. She seemed sad for the first time all night.”

I can’t be focused on wifeing somebody that young… and I’m young, too.”
As Life & Style reported last week, there seemed to be trouble in paradise after Ri, 25, started following her ex-flame Drake, 26, on Instagram. Chris then decided to unfollow the Barbadian beauty on Twitter.
