Chris Brown renews 'friendship' with Rihanna

Chris Brown acknowledged Thursday he has renewed his "friendship" with Rihanna, the woman he was convicted of beating on the eve of the Grammys in February 2009.

Brown, 23, has two more years of probation to serve for his felony assault conviction, although the judge lifted the "stay away" order that kept him from his victim last year.

The singer sent an unsolicited statement to CNN announcing he was breaking up with Karrueche Tran, the 24-year-old model he began dating a year after he was arrested for the felony assault.

"I have decided to be single to focus on my career," Brown said. "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."

    What a December 2010 study that showed the FDA recieced the most violence reported was from using ssri's. Prozac being number and Paxil being number 3 as the highest. Road rage would fit in nicely as a result of using three prescription meds.

    If I can make what I make and get by, I know you over there on skates having a good time can get by on what you make. Stop being so greedy. Boycotting another sport.

    "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." = I want to be with Rhianna and I had to break up with Karrueche to be with her.
