Chris Brown: I Can't 'Wife' Rihanna Confirms they have broken up on Australian radio show By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted May 6, 2013 9:37 AM CDT 73 comments Comments Entertainers Chris Brown, left, and Rihanna attend an NBA basketball game between the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks in Los Angeles, Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2012. (AP Photo/Alex Gallardo) (Newser) – After weeks of speculation, Chris Brown has confirmed the news that is sure to break your heart: He and Rihanna are no longer a couple. In an interview with the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Australia's 2day FM, he offers this really-tough-to-decipher explanation: "Yeah, Imma do it [that is, celebrate his birthday yesterday] solo, I mean at the end of the day Shawty [Rihanna] doing her own thang, she on the road ... it's always gonna be love ... I'm a grown man, just gotta fast forward." And also: "I'm always gonna love that person. I can't be focused on wife-ing someone that young. I need to be the best Chris Brown I can be." Best we can figure, someone is too young to be getting married, we're just not sure who. Of course, this is the same radio station that disastrously prank-called Kate Middleton's hospital, so perhaps take this news with a grain of salt. Radar has audio.
