In an interview with Los Angeles hip hop radio station Power 106 Friday morning, Brown reportedly said that he and RiRi are no longer dating. When Power 106 asked Brown "Are you still with Rihanna?" the R&B singer-rapper answered, "Uh, no—that's the short answer."
Power 106 reported the news with the below tweet.
A radio station rep told Fuse that audio of the interview—which was conducted "this week" in L.A. and rolled out piecemeal—will post online shortly. To fans questioning the quote's legitimacy, Power 106 is standing by the statement, telling Fuse, "We wouldn't have tweeted it if it wasn't true."
Rihanna possibly addressed the split in a tweet at 5:00 AM Friday morning, writing simply, "This is terrible." Breakups are indeed.
Update: Rihanna has deleted the tweet, but a screen shot exists below.
RiRi later retweeted a message from a Pisces horoscope account: "It's the heart of a #Pisces that makes us soft mannered BUT is that same heart of a #Pisces that will make us get in your ass if needed."
The news comes two days after Brown told Billboard that he and Rihanna recorded a track for his upcoming album, X. "We did 'Nobody's Business' for her album. In return, she did a song for my album," Brown said. "It's a great song, but it's in the pot with all the other 40 songs."
Neither have yet to release official statements. Stay tuned to Fuse for updates.
