Chris Brown: “I Dumped Karreuche Because of Rihanna, Y’all.”

From E! Online via Chris‘s publicist:

“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. I’d rather be single, allowing us to both be happy in our lives.”

Emily was right, guys. It is on. Damn. Also, it’s about time Karreuche stopped being a doormat. Even if she was forced away from being a doormat.

What do you guys think—will Chris and Rihanna be spotted out more and more frequently ’til there’s just no mistake that they’re totally boning? (Because if you can read between the lines as it is, they’re totally boning.)

Chris Brown Was Photographed Leaving Rihanna’s Hotel

A photo of Rihanna and Chris Brown

The photo itself isn’t that interesting, it’s not like it’s Chris Brown walking out with his pants halfway down and a used condom stuck to his face with Rihanna waving out of a window. No, it’s the story itself, which, of course, is just the latest in the string of stories we’ve been hearing for the past few days about these two getting back together.

But hey, here’s a photo of the two of them together:

This was taken by someone at a Jay-Z concert in New York and then posted on Twitter. Here’s another one that TMZ got of the two of them during one of their many club excursions (the night they had that bathroom adventure), and they even took the time to edit in little arrows so you can see where they are. Considerate!

Oh, oh! You know what Chris Brown’s official girlfriend, Karrueche, tweeted yesterday? Wait for it:

Bye baby

It’s so on, you guys.

Rihanna And Chris Brown Hooked Up in A Bathroom Last Night

A photo of Chris Brown

Just last night, I told you guys that someone saw Rihanna and Chris Brown making out in a club. It was a little sad, but not surprising at all. Just like it won’t be surprising when I tell you that someone else saw Chris and Rihanna hang out at a club and then sneak off to the bathroom for half an hour last night. And you know what that means. It means that your drunk ass has to hold it because a couple of nimrods just can’t wait to bone. Awful.

From Hollywood Life:

After being locked in a bathroom for more than 30 minutes with Chris and two bodyguards outside on lookout, a disheveled Rihanna emerges with a smile on her face, as if she’d had the time of her life. A source tells EXCLUSIVELY just how happy Rihanna is!

“It’s on and cracking” between Rihanna and Chris Brown, as one source exclusively reveals to, as the off-again, but now clearly on-again, couple engaged in a “raunchy” bathroom encounter on October 2 at Griffin nightclub in NYC.

“We got there, she saw him, thought he looked good and she wanted to push up on it. She took a hit and had a drink and it was on and cracking,” a source exclusively reveals. “They hooked up. I wasn’t in the bathroom with them but I know they f-cked around and what not. They were in the club partying hard, had some drinks and kush and one thing led to another and that was that.  She wanted some of him and she got some. Wasn’t like Chris was gone turn her down. He wanted her just as much as she wanted him.”  has also learned Rihanna and Chris arranged their rendezvous at Griffin and were texting each other prior to meeting at the club.

“We were about 8 deep and Chris had his people with him so Ri was like ‘F-ck it, let’s meet later at Griffin.’ He was like ‘Cool,’ and we all hit it up.”

Chris and Rihanna are notorious for texting each other and sending subliminal messages to one another via Twitter, but sources close to the couple say that what went down early this morning is a clear indication they may be taking their relationship public!

“It’s about time Chris stepped up and made my girl happy, I mean damn. I’m giving Chris props though – [he] finally grew a pair and stepped to my girl. He got his swag back now.”

So instead of taking the usual “gross ugh worst” approach, can we talk about those bodyguards instead? Because that is straight up awful. Like, Chris Brown is an asshole, of course, and Rihanna, I just can’t even with Rihanna right now, but there’s a lot of psychology behind that, you know? But these bodyguards are just regular dudes, and I know that they’re employees, but what, are they just chilling and waiting on him to beat her again? How is that conscionable?

Don’t Freak Out, But Someone Saw Rihanna and Chris Brown Making Out

You’re freaking out, aren’t you? I specifically told you not to freak out. God, you always do this.

From E! Online:

Is Rihanna giving Chris Brown a second chance—or did she just share a fleeting romantic moment with her ex?

Just one week after the 23-year-old “Run It!” singer appeared to cozy up with Nicole Scherzinger, Brown and his ex got hot and heavy with his former girlfriend while partying with her at NYC hotspot Griffin.

Here’s what went down during the one-time couple’s late night rendezvous.

Brown, joined by pal Bow Wow, arrived at the club first and settled into his own table, E! News confirms. Rihanna arrived later, and sat at a separate table from her ex.

“She knew he was there,” a source tells us.

At one point during the night, Brown climbed over his table to join Rihanna at hers. She then proceeded to take off his shirt before they began dancing and making out, according to an eyewitness at the club.

Following their PDA dance session, Brown left the club just before 4 a.m., with Rihanna hitting the road about five minutes later.

Reps for Brown, 23, and Rihanna, 24, did not immediately comment.

Awful, gross, horrible, etc., etc. If this report is true, then it’s nothing that we haven’t seen coming for a good long while, and if it’s not true, then it’s only a matter of time before a story just like this actually happens. It’s bad, it’s sad, but we all know it’s going to happen. So let’s just get ready, all right?

Presented without Comment: Chris Brown’s New Music Video, “Don’t Judge Me”

Ok, maybe just one comment: WHAT.

No, really, what even is this? First of all, I just love the fact that Chris Brown has a song called “Don’t Judge Me.” He’s done, like, one redeemable thing in his entire career, and even that is just his pretty ok dancing skills. He’s been a giant dick over and over. It’s not even that he’s been a douchebag, no, he’s been an outright asshole. He’s been a bad person. So yeah, I’m going to judge you, Chris Brown. I’m going to judge you for days.

Also, this is a dumb video. He gets in a fight with his girlfriend because she can’t “just let the past just be the past,” so he gets in a spaceship and kills himself? That’s a bit much, isn’t it? And what is he even doing up there? Is he destroying a giant meteor, or some evil alien spacecraft? But he’s not even doing anything, he’s just chillin’ in a chair. Is this supposed to be the whiny, useless jackass version of Armageddon? Because you are no Bruce Willis, Chris Brown. You are no Bruce Willis.

Ok, I guess that was technically eighteen comments, but now it’s your turn!

New Couple Alert: Chris Brown and … Nicole Scherzinger?

So, in reality, the two were together to host the Black Pyramid Party at Supperclub in Los Angeles, but if you look through the photos in the gallery, the two look … well, they look pretty darn cozy, if you ask me. Which doesn’t make any sense, because Nicole Scherzinger seems like a reasonable girl (I guess?), and it’s beyond me that any reasonable-like girl would consider kissing, snuggling, or otherwise being within six feet of Chris Brown voluntarily.

Chris, as you guys all know, is “dating” Karreuche Tran, and Nicole, well, she’s got her own boyfriend, too—racecar driver Lewis Hamilton, both of which were nowhere to be seen at the festivities. As for Rihanna? Well, she was nowhere to be found, either. I’d imagine she was off somewhere, drowning her sorrows in a bottle of whiskey or the like, and lamenting the continual loss of Chris Brown. For whatever psychotic, obsessed reason she happens to have this week, at any rate.

Anyway, Nicole has—naturally—made a statement about how she did not make out with Chris Brown. Nicole’s rep says:

“There is absolutely no truth to the ridiculous story … The photos that have surfaced are old friends who were trying to talk at a very loud club. I guarantee there will be no photos of them kissing.”

Ugh, sure. OK.

Chris Brown Fails A Drug Test, Judge Says It’s Cool

A photo of Chris Brown

So Chris Brown is on probation. We’re all familiar with how that works, right? You break a law, sometimes you go to jail, and sometimes you don’t go to jail. Sometimes you do something in between called probation, which is where you have to be extra super special good or you will go to jail. Or at least, that’s how it’s supposed to work.

Chris Brown smoked weed, took a drug test, failed it, and is still on probation, all because he’s a pretty ok dancer:

Chris Brown tested positive for marijuana recently in Virginia, where smoking weed is illegal, but the judge said she would NOT revoke his probation.

Chris was just in court for a probation progress report hearing in his felony battery of Rihanna — and according to probation report docs … Brown failed a drug test on June 18 in Virginia, where he was fulfilling his court ordered community service.

According to probation report, Chris told his probation officer he had smoked weed in California — where he has a medical marijuana prescription — and then failed the test in Virginia, where weed is illegal … prescription or no prescription.

Judge Patricia Schnegg said she never ordered Brown to undergo mandatory drug testing as part of his probation, so she cut him a break … this time … letting him off with a stern reminder to obey all laws.

Schnegg also ordered Brown’s entire case moved back to California because that’s where he lives now.

Judge Schnegg also ordered Brown to meet with his probation officer within 72 hours to sort out a discrepancy in community service hours — prosecutors say he had 121 hours left to complete as of August 15th, but Chris’ attorney, Mark Geragos insists he has less than that on his tab.

Ok, I’m not going to sit here and say that I thinking marijuana is the worst thing in the world and anyone who smokes it should be hauled off to jail immediately, but still, it’s a law, you know? It’s a law that Chris Brown broke and offered an excuse for – which, by the way, doesn’t it sound like they never even checked out that prescription? – and got away with. No matter what crime he originally committed, he’s another celebrity that’s getting off way too easy because of his fame, and that’s pretty shitty, huh?

Here’s hoping that community service thing catches up with him!
